    Miss Emily PDF EPUB ´ Paperback miss download, emily book, Miss Emily KindleWhile this novel is beautifully written I wound up not enjoying it as much as I’d expected to The pace is pretty slow and honestly I’m tired of rape being used as a plot device There are a number of historical novels out there that deal with this same exact storyline but the only difference is that this one is about Emily Dickinson’s servant Not much else about the class differences and oppression of women via sexual violence is said in this novel that hasn’t been said before Again I don’t think Miss Emily is a bad book because Nuala O’Connor writes beautifully it just isn’t anything original and the slow pacing affect my overall feelings about it
