taralovesbooks’ #CBR4 Review #5: We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver
Cannonball Read IV: Book #5/52
I have really mixed feelings about this book. I remember wanting to read it when it came out last year, but forgot about it until the movie version was just released. I prefer to read the book before I see the movie, so I decided to finally pick this one up.
We Need to Talk About Kevin is written from his mother, Eva’s, point of view. She is writing letters to her estranged husband recounting a horrible event that their son Kevin was responsible for that she initially only refers to as Thursday (in italics). Slowly, the events are unfolded until we have the full scope of horrors that unfolded at Kevin’s school on Thursday.
