Book Review: Irma Voth

Irma Voth by Mariam Toews was our most recent book club choice. It’s about a 19 year-old Mennonite girl who’s married to a total jerk and daughter to a bigger jerk. She becomes involved with a movie production crew as a translator, and there is some fall-out from that.
I can sum up this book in one word (well, sound): meh.
I found the first half incredibly boring and just annoying to read because of the writing style. The second part was a bit more interesting, but still just kind of random and not memorable at all.
I’ll be nice and give the book a 2.5/5, since the story was a good idea, just not executed or developed very well.

  1. I read that too and that's what I thought. I found it hard to finish to be honest but I finished it on the grounds that the storyline might improve.
