A Unique Writing Style..

The Wives of Los Alamos
The Wives of Los Alamos

By: TaraShea Nesbit

Genre: Historical fiction

Pages: 240

Published: 2014

Read: April

3 out of 5

I have never read a book quite like this. Not only is it all written in pronouns, but it is always in the plural form. It was very unique and definitely serviced the author's purpose. The use of personal plural pronouns demonstrated that while the wives were individuals, they were always considered as one, their choices were limited, and they connected with each other as one. They may have immigrated from different places and have completely different backgrounds, but they must unite now.  The book itself is repetitive in parts and I often craved more details, due to the structure of writing everything was generalized.
