Review -- The Weird Sisters 4/29/14



The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown, read by Kirsten Potter

Rosalind, Bianca, and Cordelia are the Andreas sisters. Rosalind(Rosie) is a professor at the local college, Bianca(Bean) is off in New York, working and enjoying the nightlife, Cordelia(Cordy)is riding the wind wherever it takes her. One summer, they all show up back at home. Although Rosie has never left the town they grew up with, she is staying with her parents a lot more now. Cordy & Bean show up, just when they are needed most. Their mother is sick and is going to need their help. Each sister has been drawn home for a different reason, but being home will change them all.

The Weird Sisters is a weird book. It was written in the third person, but I didn't know which sister was speaking at the time. Maybe this is because I listened to the audio instead of reading the actual book, but I found it strange that it seemed like they were talking about each other, but you never knew who was speaking at that time. Maybe there was a fourth sister. 

This book was just okay for me. It was an interesting story, but there wasn't anything that really stood out for me to make this a great book.

I give it 2 stars!!  

I listened to this on my iPod and borrowed it from Overdrive library.  I am unsure if I will read more by this author.  If it is written in the same format, I may not!
