The Two Hearts of Eliza Bloom by Beth Miller

2 Stars

Let me begin by pointing out that the cover of this book liked like such for me . . . .

There is very little chance I would have picked up the “girl with umbrella” version. Let me also say that the comparisons to Eleanor Oliphant or Where’d You Go, Bernadette? miss the mark as well. At best, this could be compared to specific moments such as . . . . .

Or . . . .

I’m giving The Two Hearts of Eliza Blook 2 Stars simply for my own personal enjoyment. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the writing and a modern Orthodox Jewish main character was certainly refreshing and not the cookie-cutter norm when it comes to female leads. However:

1. I don’t like twatty dudes . . . except occasionally when I pick up a motorcycle/shifter porno.

2. I don’t tolerate liars . . . . except occasionally when I pick up an unreliable narrator type of thriller.

3. I don’t accept cheating. Pretty much EVER.

That being said, my reaction to pretty much this entire thing was a big ol’ . . . . .

If you can get past the issues I had, you’ll most likely have a reaction totally opposite of mine.
