The Smell of Other People's Houses

I'm afraid I didn't particularly like this book. The writing style felt disingenuous, and I could not distinguish between any of the narrators, as the tone and style of the writing never shifted and none had much personality. Each chapter, I would have to constantly remind myself who I was reading about. It was very issues-based, and the setting and characters were clearly inspired by the author's life in Alaska and her complicated love for it. There were some moving moments and turns of phrase, but overall this book just didn't impact me and despite being short, it was tough going for me.
