Review: We the Animals: A novel
We the Animals: A novel by Justin Torres
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A portion of the three stars is for author potential, something I very rarely consider when rating a book. If Torres turns out to be capable of writing an actual story rather than a collection of scenes that may or may not reveal a sad character arc, he will prove to be a gifted writer. Right now, he shows the ability to pull a reader into the heart of his characters, but he doesn't seem to know what to do with them once they are there.
