The internationals by Sarah May

This book had such a promising premise. However I’m still trying to figure out where it all went wrong. Or worse yet, it never took off. To say that #theinternationals is dry is an understatement. #may manages to simply put one word after another without any feeling or reflection or force behind it. This book is the literary equivalent of having water running through your hands. Yeah, you get a little wet but you can dry it all up in no time. This is as unmemorable and unremarkable as it goes. Even my metaphor is way more riveting than whatever you will find in these pages. 200 pages or so of complete numbness and dullness. Much like my book set in Montenegro, let’s say it was also a struggle to find a book set in #macedonia with an angle and story that enticed me. I guess the challenge is still up. #sarahmay#wouldlikemymoneyback #vintagebooks#skopje #kosovo #refugees #Скопје#itwasabadbookindeed #nato#refugeecamp #humanitariansoftinder#albanian #expats #shoulddobetter #dull#numb
