Review: Brooklyn

Brooklyn
Brooklyn by Colm Tóibín
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this, but I found it a little bland. Eilis, the main character, is rather one-dimensional, a little lacking in spirit, and seems very passive almost throughout the novel. I was expecting something with a little more angst. I will be interested to see how Nick Hornby’s adaptation for the screen differs!
