review Eileen author Ottessa Moshfegh Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB Ul and cheery Rebecca Saint John arrives on the scene as the new counselor at the prison Eileen is enchanted and proves unable to resist what appears at first to be a miraculously budding friendship But her affection for Rebecca ultimately pulls her into complicity in a crime that surpasses her wildest imaginings. Do not read Eileen if you don t like repulsive characters if you re turned off by graphic descriptions of bodily smells and filth or if you like your novels to be action packed Do read Eileen if you like dark character studies and can stand to be strung along for most of a book before getting to the crux of what is being foreshadowed Eileen the narrator looks back at a few days in 1964 when she was 24 years and living a nasty life in a small town with her nasty father working at a nasty job And Eileen is not particularly nice either in fact she s pretty nasty and she pretty much knows it Enough said There s no point revealing the plot This one is an experience rather than a story and it will work for some and not for others I liked reading Eileen once I got in the right head space It s cleverly written it s like the layers of an onion slowly being peeled away underneath there s still onion but I like onions every now and then Despite the darkness there s an undercurrent of humour dark humour The end was weird but no weirder than the rest of the book really I m not sure I would classify this one as Booker material but the lists are getting odder every year so Eileen probably fits as well on the list as other books Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for giving me access to a copy Nation as Mother resist what appears at first to be a miraculously budding friendship But her affection for Rebecca ultimately pulls her into complicity in a crime that surpasses her wildest imaginings.
