Under the Harrow by Flynn Berry

27246107  This is the current month’s read at the Goodreads English Kindle Mystery Club.  I actually nominated this one, which is rather embarrassing as I  didn’t care for it at all.  This was less of a mystery and more of a journey into the psychological breakdown/disconnection of the main character.  The book is written in the first person and in a stream of consciousness voice.  It is difficult to follow as the story jumps around in the time stream and even contradicts itself in the current time, within a sentence or two on the same page.    The mystery of her sister’s death is solved at the very end but it is not something the reader would have uncovered.  Heavy emphasis here on the psychology study, it was not really my cup of tea.
