What I Leave Behind by Alison McGhee

4 stars

Reviewed by William.

At first, I was not impressed by the short format of the book. However, the unique style grew on me. Besides my initial dislike of the format, when the story began, I felt like I didn't know what was going on in the book. As the narrative progressed, though, I enjoyed how we learned more about Will and the people he meets and interacts with. While Will walks out the day we hear his thoughts and begin to understand the events which have lead to the present moment in the book. While I felt the book lacked a clear plot, I did enjoy reading it.
