THE "ARTS" REVIEWS!

THE ART OF TAXIDERMY

On the blurb I was told that The Art of Taxidermy¬†was a book about grief. I didn’t feel like it was over the top with it but it did talk about it a bit. Only by the end did I realise the reason why the main character was doing taxidermy was to connect with her mum. I wasn’t really fazed by the book but then again I believe I never really connect to any poetry book. Or at least thus far. I’ll keep this review as short as possible but I did enjoy the taxidermy and how that was portrayed. I just wish there was more substance to the characters. I didn’t feel any connection to them which I must admit is the winning factor to any book in my opinion.

ACTUAL RATING: 3.2 STARS

THE SUBTLE ART

Man, I needed a bit of self help from this guy! Mark Manson writes a very comedic and brutally honest novel about failure, self confidence and rehashing your values. Very refreshing, making me want to tackle life’s problems head on!

ACTUAL RATING: 3.6 STARS
