Wanting to support “local” authors I saw that this book was written by an author from St John’s, Newfoundland and just had to get it for my friend who lives in Newfoundland. I wasn’t convinced it would be a masterpiece but was surprised to find I really enjoyed it.
I have to admit, most books that win prestigious awards are beyond me and I can’t seem to really get into them; this was the exception to the rule. Alligator‘s chapters are separated by a different character leaving you wondering how everyone connects and what happens with the person you just left behind. Lisa Moore did a wonderful job of having me relate to each character, namely Colleen and Frank who describe their own struggles and trepidations while working to achieve their own greatness, whatever that may be.
I’m glad I took the time to read through this book before passing it on and trust that whoever reads it next will enjoy it as much as I did or more.
Thanks for reading,
