A review by thehighepopt
Eight White Nights by André Aciman

dark emotional slow-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? Character
  • Strong character development? No
  • Loveable characters? No
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


It's like the author went to a party, saw a beautiful woman, then jerked off into a book every day for a week.  All manic pixie dreamgirl, no dialogue that isn't repeating what the MC said.  Nothing goes anywhere or does anything. The best part is you can read the first sentence of a paragraph, skip the rest, and miss nothing.
