I had been looking forward to reading Copyright A Novel ever since reading an excerpt on Lori Lesko’s website (link below) months ago. The idea of someone stealing your unfinished novel and publishing it themselves makes me sick to my stomach. I needed to find out how Amber dealt with it. I saw on Twitter that it was out and had to get it right away.
The plot is great. The twists and turns were unpredictable and, for lack of better words, in your face. I read the entire novel in one day because I just had to find out what was going to happen next.
The main character seemed very real, almost too real at times. Amber changes a lot throughout the book and most of those changes are not for the better due to her struggles with addiction. There were times I hated her. Yes, hated her. I understood her hardships and why she did what she did, but that does not mean I agreed with them. At all. She manages to grow positively eventually and for that I am thankful.
I am intrigued to see how Amber’s story continues and how the family dynamics play out in her future.
My one complaint (aside from hating the main character at times :P) is that some of the other characters seemed to flat. They did not feel as real as Amber. But this could be because not much time is spent with any of the other characters, so maybe in future stories about Amber, the other characters will start to feel more real.
I recommend this book and await a follow up novel!
