Fruit of the Drunken Tree: A Novel - Ingrid Rojas Contreras

I had a really hard time getting into this book. Actually, I never did get into this book. It was rather slow for me. It was about the day to day in Bogota and dealt with a well off household who hired poor girls to clean and the poor girls.

With it being day to day activities, it was written day to day. It was just really, really slow for me. I think had I not had such a long TBR pile and had I more time, I could have given this book a little more time. However, for me, there are too many good books out there to be bogged down by a slow one.

I was not crazy about the characters, it was kind of boring and was not holding my attention.

I absolutely LOVE the cover, however.

Thanks to Doubleday Books and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
