52 Books: Book 45

Earlier this week I wrapped up The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman. The writing style of this book reminded me of the movie Valentine’s Day. Each chapter follows various characters who work for an Italian newspaper. Each character’s story is short and somewhat incomplete. Some of the characters show up in each other’s plots, but mostly the stories are about the individuals who make up the paper. 
I am not a fan of this style of writing. It comes across as choppy and incomplete. I felt like I never really got to know any of the characters. At the very end, condensed into one short chapter, we learn what happens to each character. For me, it just wasn’t enough.
