Over them They drink and Lavinia tells Louise about all the places they will go together when they finish their stories when they are both great writers to Paris and to Rome and to TriesteLavinia will never go She is going to die soonLouise has no Social Creature by Tara Isabella Burton is a 2018 Doubleday publication Unorthodox but very effectiveLouise Wilson is one birthday away from thirty working three jobs to stay afloat living a dull uneventful life Through a tutoring job she meets Lavinia a rich young woman taking a break from her ivy league education Lavinia pulls Louise into her vivid and lavish world all of which is expediently documented on social media Louise caters to Lavinia s every whim which earns her a chance to be her roommate and live a far comfortable and exciting life But keeping Lavinia happy is nearly a full time job causing Louise to lose her real jobs one by one To stay in Lavinia s world and maintain her new lifestyle Louise will make some terrible decisions getting in deeper and deeper only to discover Lavinia may be looking to replace Louise with someone else There is only one option left for Louise but will she really go through with it Can she pull it off and if so for how long I had heard a few wild and crazy stories about this book which of course meant I had to read it to see what all the fuss was about While I knew going in the book was off the beaten path I never could have imagined just how far off the path it would go First of all the book gets high marks because of its originality We have an unusual unnamed narrator who tells the story from hindsight dropping big and small hints along the way about what will happen next This is a uniue approach very seductive pulling the reader in even if they aren t especially enthralled with the lead characters Social consciousness sympathy empathy or the slightest regard for other people never even enters their minds They are all shallow immature greedy and weak in one way or another But despite that I sat there turning pages totally absorbed in the cat and mouse game that ensues all the while thinking these people weren t really worth my time or effort But of course I did enjoy spying on these two women and the inner circle of people surrounding them as they posture and preen backstab and jockey for position because it has an atmosphere of reality to it Our society is so fixated on social media and creating an impossible image of themselves for others to admire It s all so phony and easily manipulated But there really are lots of Louise s out there too While we can view Lavinia and her friends with a certain detachment for Louise who is lonely and insecure barely scraping by this lifestyle that Lavinia as invited her into is than she could have hoped for and she s desperate to maintain it at any cost It s a sad commentary and a very realistic one on many levels While the story starts off a little slow the second half of the book is riveting and the suspense is nearly unbearable at times However there is a slight satirical tone to the story at times with a touch of black humor thrown if for good measure For those who detest a novel filled with unredeemable characters this one will test your patience but the author takes it a step further by throwing in an unsettling conclusion that is sure to frustrate those who like everything all tidied up the old fashioned way But then there are people like me who see the irony in it the truth in it and absolutely revel in all that darkness and uncertainty So while this book may not be the right fit for everyone and the writing was a bit uneven in some spots I thought it was ingenious I ll be keeping my eye on this author 4 stars The Last Kids on Earth and the Skeleton Road finish their stories
