I found "The Muse" to be a little underwhelming. I can imagine someone with an interest in art may have enjoyed parts of this book more than I did, but in general it was just an okay read. I enjoyed the charming characters that the author, Jessie Burton, has created and can appreciate that this certainly has a well crafted storyline but as I wasn't entertained, it's 3 stars from me.
I know I'm in the minority here but I really couldn't get into this book. In a post apocalyptic world, a group of travelling musicians and actors wasn't enough to keep my gripped or engaged. Not awful, but with too much going on and not enough attention paid to characters and crucial plot points, "Station Eleven" is getting 2 stars from me.
This book was too long, repetitive and just not my kind of thing. With styles that are difficult to follow, characters that I've already forgotten and plot points that happen again and again, I didn't like this book. No matter what other reviewers say, it's just 1 star for "All Involved" from me.
