Book #76 of 2020 | The Pull of the Stars by Emma Donoghue

Title: The Pull of the Stars

Author: Emma Donoghue

Thoughts: Overall, this was just alright. The writing is great, although the lack of quotation marks made it hard for me to get into it. I found myself rooting for Julia, the main character, while also feeling very connected to her. She was a wonderfully written character. Maybe it’s just because I was reading about a pandemic during a pandemic? I just didn’t love this one.

Favorite Lines:
“You’re a traveller in a strange land, I told her. Clever and brave.” (p. 138)

“My aching awareness of every muscle was so entirely unlike the blankness of death.” (p. 151)

“If anything was written in the stars, it was we who joined those dots, and our lives were the writing.” (p. 244)

“I kissed her back. The old world was changed utterly, dying on its feet, and a new one was struggling to be born.” (p. 250)
