American Dirt Book Review

Review:

I was super excited to read American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins because of the controversy surrounding it. The book has been criticized because the author is white, not an immigrant, and her her use of stereotypes exploits Mexican immigrants, in addition to depicting an unauthentic story.

I really didn’t pay attention to these criticism as this novel is a work of fiction. All authors have the liberty to use their imagination. Cummins did do 5 years of research before completing this book and judging the author because she is not an immigrant is ridiculous.

The Liar’s Girl was my introduction to Catherine Ryan Howard.

I was looking forward to reading this book because it was nominated for the Edgar Award in 2019. Also I was keen on digging in a book set in Dublin, Ireland and by an Irish author.

The book also had rave reviews from the book community so I was eager to read it to see if it would live up to its hype.

Review:

This is my first book by author Peter Swanson.

I feel very late to the Peter Swanson fan party. I love to discover new authors to love and having read Eight Perfect Murders I can honestly say I will be checking out more of Swanson’s work. Swanson’s is known for The Kind Worth Killing and Her Every Fear so I will add those to my to read list!

I really enjoyed this cleverly crafted murder mystery.
