Claire’s Head Review Revisited

I copied the review I wrote of Claire’s Head so I could include it in an Amazon review and realized that I didn’t include a major part of the review. While my ego would prefer if I just ignored this fact, I can’t mislead my dear readers.

The truth is, the book is great for showing the agony of headache, but isn’t a compelling novel. The plot isn’t believable, which makes the story boring. I still recommend the book, as it is great for showing headache pain, but don’t expect to have your socks knocked off. Despite this, the characters’ agony was enough to engage me for the first two-thirds of the book.

The original review now ends with a note saying pretty much what’s written here. Sorry for my oversight.

    I just finished reading _The Emancipator’s Wife_ by Barbara Hambly, which also has realistic (too realistic for me, to be honest) descriptions of migraine pain & symptoms. And it’s a solid historical novel, to boot.

    Thanks, Marisa! I’ve added it to my “to read” list.
