No, this isn’t going to be a “true” book review (as I just don’t have the energy right now), but I did HAVE to write about the book I finished called Calling Invisible Women (a novel) by Jeanne Ray.
I read about this one on the Dear Author blog and as someone getting up there in age, I found the premis of women of certain age becoming invisible (due to their age and not being the “ideal” anymore) was interesting. Of course in the book, these women were literally turning invisible.
Now I read the book and it was entertaining and well worth the cost (free as I checked it out of my local public library), but the reason I HAD to write about it was a paasage that I take umbrage with:
The two characters are talking about taking a trip and the one speaking refers to the fact that she wasn’t fired from her job like the rest of the women in the invisible woman support group so she can’t take the time off. In case the image doesn’t come thru your reader or browser, here is the passage: “… I’m a librarian. I have good research skills. I didn’t lose my job because nobody cares whether or not librarians are invisible.”
Then again, it shows librarians aren’t expendable! Even invisible we provide a much needed service! Rock on invisible librarians!
As for a quick review, I’d give the book 3.5 out of 5 stars! Like I said, it was entertaining. Not my normal type of book at all, but I’d probably read more books by this author.
