Book: I Have Some Questions For You
Author: Rebecca Makkai
This is my 49th read for the year
This is the story of Bodie - a woman who has become and successful podcaster and film professor. She was invited back to her high school boarding school- Granby - to teach a course and gets sucked into a past murder that happened to her roommate while she was a student at the school. The class wanted to investigate the man who was accused of the murder because many believe he was falsely imprisioned. Bodie reluctantly agrees knowing that this will dredge up a past that is many years in the past. As new evidence of the crime comes to light, many people who were involved and at the school at the time of the murder are brought back into the investigation - many against their will. But Brodie is determined to figure out what happened.
This was an okay book. Actually - I think it started really strong. I was really invested in the story for about 50% of it. Then - it started to drag. This nearly 500 page book seemed way too long in my opionion. It started to get convaluded especially during the end 100 pages or so. I usually love when a book does a timeline jump at the end and wraps up the story, but this was just a bit of a slog with an unsatisfying conclusion.
