The Pharamcist’s Mate by Ammy Fusselman
As a rule I do not immediately discount anything because of its size, spiders are attracted to my sweet smelling skin. So, I was willing to approach The Pharmacist’s Mate with some skepticism and caution. Zadie Smith told me about its punch, but I finished the book and even slept for a night before deciding the punch is a fan. It was an okay book, like a slap from an 11 year old. It did become more interesting and even a bit more provoking towards the end, but overall it lacked the emotional impact I was led to believe it would give.
