When I read Stephen King’s tweet about My Absolute Darling back in July (“This is one shattering can’t-put-it down book. Both shocking & tender. Read it.”), I immediately put it on my to-read list. Since then I’ve been ignoring all the good and bad reviews. Now that I’m finally reading it, I’m just trying to focus on how I feel about Gabriel Tallent’s intense debut novel. And, truthfully, even though I’m almost at the halfway point, I haven’t quite decided yet. I’m caught between loving it on one page and hating it on the next. But one thing is for certain: I can’t put this book down.
