Het leven van drie vriendinnen in Londen ( )
  huizenga | Jun 5, 2021 |
Expectation by Anna Hope was high on my list for 2020 spring book releases. I love following a group of female protagonists over time as they navigate different life circumstances. Unfortunately, I struggled to connect with these characters overall and didn't find their friendships together relatable.

The premise and issues were promising but ended up feeling a little forced and sometimes a bit stereotypical. I did find the writing surrounding infertility and motherhood to be poignant and nuanced, I just wished for a lot more of that throughout the entire book.

I also struggled with the presentation of female friendship, which just fell flat for me. I have read that other readers compared Anna Hope's writing to Sally Rooney's (i.e. Normal People) and I struggled with her books too, so maybe it is just wasn't for me. ( )

Thank you to NetGalley and Harper Perennial for a copy in exchange for my honest review. ( )

This tells the entwined stories of Cate, Lissa and Hannah mainly from their time as students until their late thirties. I enjoyed it very much. The characters were easy to keep separate in one's mind, although the continual shifting between different years was occasionally confusing. I found my loyalties switching from friend to friend, but at the same time rooting for each.

Recommended. ( )

I received a copy of this book for free from the publisher (Harper Perennial) in exchange for an honest review.

This was an incredibly fascinating novel.

First off, this novel is a slow burn. The book starts off on the slow side and then gradually gets more and more interesting as it progresses.

The three women in this book are all very complicated and complex. I found them to be utterly riveting. They’re all morally grey which makes them feel more real and raw. Sometimes they make decisions that others may find irritating, but to me that makes they more dynamic.

I liked the flashbacks that were woven throughout the book. They helped highlight different things about the women. The flashbacks also gradually introduced new information about them. There’s no information dumping in this book. Everything gets revealed at just the right time.

This book does get compared to Sally Rooney’s books (Conversations with Friends and Normal People). I’m a big Sally Rooney fan and there is merit to that comparison. The writing style, tone, and pacing are similar in a way.

Lastly, I liked the ending because it brought the book full circle, but at the the same time I didn’t like it. To me, the ending didn’t fully resolve everything I wanted to be resolved.

Overall, this book is a compelling character study of three women coming to terms with how their lives turned out. ( )
