Invitation to a Bonfire Reviews

  • Katie

    This book was a sloooow burn kind of suspense so it was hard for me to get into it. However the writing was beautiful and poetic. It wasn't exactly thrilling but extremely mysterious and at times ambiguous. I enjoyed it enough but not really my cup of tea.

    I received an ARC for this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    I really, really wanted to like this book. The synopsis sounded great, so I figured I'd enjoy it. Unfortunately, I just could NOT get into it. I've spent the last three days trying to read this book. I thought for SURE I must be almost half-way through it, but when I looked and saw I was only 12% of the way through, I decided it was time to move on.

    I'm giving this two stars and not one because, while I couldn't get into the story, the writing is excellent. Strange, I know, so say the writing of

    This one intrigued me from the get go. It had entirely too many elements I’m interested in (historical fiction, immigration, author, books, current and old manuscripts) to ignore. I’m actually quite surprise I didn’t end up loving this one, this is more of a strong like and appreciation situation. And it took me until 90% to put a finger on why and here it is, the main protagonist confused me. We see the entire story mostly from her perspective (the novel has an epistolary structure and Zoya’s j ...more

    DNF. I tried to push through to get to the passionate love triangle, which sounded very interesting to me, but I got so bored during the childhood/school parts that I lost interest.

  • Nancy

    At fifteen, Zoya Andropov was sent to an orphanage where she cross-stitched portraits of Party members, her stomach growling from hunger. Her parents, who were on "the right side" of the Russian revolution, had died soon after "the new and glorious union of our country," like everyone else she knew.

    Then in 1928, she was one of 200 USSR orphans chosen to be sent to America, ending up at the small, elite, Donne School.

    Impoverished and alien, she is bullied and manipulated by the rich American gi
