Book Review # 107 & GIVEAWAY - Bradstreet Gate By Robin Kirman

Synopsis:


A tour de force about three friends affected by a campus murder, for readers of Donna Tartt, Meg Wolitzer, and Jeffrey Eugenides

Georgia, Charlie and Alice each arrive at Harvard with hopeful visions of what the future will hold. But when, just before graduation, a classmate is found murdered on campus, they find themselves facing a cruel and unanticipated new reality. Moreover, a charismatic professor who has loomed large in their lives is suspected of the crime. Though his guilt or innocence remains uncertain, the unsettling questions raised by the case force the three friends to take a deeper look at their tangled relationship. Their bond has been defined by the secrets they’ve kept from one another—Charlie’s love and Alice’s envy, Georgia’s mysterious affair—and over the course of the next decade, as they grapple with the challenges
of adulthood and witness the unraveling of a teacher's once-charmed life, they must reckon with their own deceits and shortcomings, each desperately in search of answers and the chance to be forgiven.

A relentless, incisive, and keenly intelligent novel about promise, disappointment, and the often tenuous bonds of friendship, Bradstreet Gate is the auspicious debut of a tremendously talented new writer.






My Take On This Book:

Georgia, Alice and Charlie are the main characters who meet as Harvard freshman. Then there is Rufus Storrow who is an attorney but serves as a housemaster and a visiting professor. Before graduation a fellow student and friend Julie Patel is murdered, and Storrow is assumed to be guilty due to him matching the description of the killer and the argument he and Julie had in his classroom.

I wanted to like this book because I love a good mystery, but for me there was too much back and forth between the characters, and their quirky lives. I was not drawn in by the characters as some others were, I found them a bit dysfunctional.

I received a free copy of this book for review from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group, for my honest unbiased opinion.
