The Strays

61PxRB7NByL._SY346_While The Strays by Emily Bitto had an engaging and beautiful cover, I didn’t love it. I not only felt like I had read it before but also I tired of the story’s premise quickly. It’s one of those books where the parents are bohemian artists and neglect their children. Then the children get up to no good and have adult sadnesses and regret. The story wasn’t bad, per se, and it had some suspense driven by a dangling story element alluded to in the beginning, but I found myself distracted through most of the book and only really into it at the end.
