"The Bright Side Sanctuary for Animals" by Becky Mandelbaum

DNF page 10

Published by Simon & Schuster on August 4th, 2020

336 pages

Genre: fiction


"From the winner of the 2016 Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction comes a tender and funny debut novel, set over one emotionally charged weekend at an animal sanctuary in western Kansas, where maternal, romantic, and community bonds are tested in the wake of an estranged daughter’s homecoming." (Goodreads)


I usually never DNF before 50 pages, but I refuse to read a book that interjects the author's political opinions. Even if I agree with their opinions or not, it does not matter. I am not going to sit here and read a personal rant disguised as plot-driven content.


If I knew it before I requested it on NetGalley then I would have avoided the book altogether.


I know this sounds harsh, but this book is just not for me and someone else might really enjoy it.
