    When I read the blurb for this book I got excited I thought it sounded right up my alley image ragey gif here that won t post for me It s soooo bad Bad enough that I wanted to go back over all the years of one starring books and raise some of their scores because this was honestly that bad.Before you get your panties all in a wad and your trolling fingers ready.I ll give you some examples of the writing.You can imagine all sorts of things, you do imagine all sorts of things, you look at his new friends profiles both male and female looking for a revelation in someone s posts you decipher the tiniest comment, you keep cutting from one wall to another, you play back the songs he s listened to, read meaning into the lyrics, learn about what he likes, view his photos and videos, keep an eye on his geo location, the events he s going to, you navigate like a submarine though an ocean of faces and words.I swear that s one sentence Here s another one And you can go ahead and do what the othe...

    2 Stars Who You Think I Am by Camille Laurens was confusing as all get out After reading it, I have no idea who the main character, Claire Millecam a k a Claire Antunes, purported to be Formulating coherent thoughts about a book that was extremely hard to get into and took me forever to do so because of it and whose ending made no sense and also had me re reading it, causing me to scratch my head and rub my eyes, has made me wonder if I read a different book than those who gave it 4 and or 5 star reviews For the first time ever, I honestly don t know what to say though I will do my best.After a confusing start, the book does in fact take off quickly I believe it starts with the main character, Claire Millecam narrating she speaks in long run on sentences, describing her obsession with her boyfriend Joe, who is a narcissist He, of course, only cares for himself and breaks things off Thereafter, Claire decides she wants to spy on Joe on Facebook Knowing he won t friend her, she creates a fake profile, that of Claire Antunes, using another much younger woman s photo and friends his roommate Chris Kiss...

    Most of the reviews I ve seen focus on the opening part of this totally compelling novel a 48 year old woman named Claire who is almost in her words at the point of expiration creates a Facebook persona, using the photograph of a younger woman, and connects to the friend of the man who dumped her Both become increasingly obsessed with the other s fake persona to the point that reality becomes irreversibly blurred and consequences result.Yet it s the entirety of the novel that is so striking The structure of the book unfolds like Russian Matryoshka nesting dolls, with one story placed inside the other The result is a searing look at the devaluation of women as they age, the shaky boundaries between fantasy and reality, and the very nature of love itself electing, not selecting Narrated through taped interviews with her therapist and then expanded into the disciplinary hearing of that therapist, and relayed by the writer herself who happens to be named Camille Laurens , the structure calls to mind His Bloody Project, a book I enjoyed immensely, as well as J.M Coetzee s Summertime which has a character named Coetzee As the novel deepens, readers get a sense of what the true Camille Laurens is really after how our min...

    A longer review is available on my blog found this book very difficult and cumbersome to read Most of the book is told with only one side speaking so there are times when the narrator answers questions that we, as readers, are not privy to Reading a string of Yes No Yes Yes when I have no knowledge of the questions being asked is frustrating Most of the book was told from the perspective of a psychiatric patient and I believed that the author was trying to make this felt in the writing until the psychiatrist s point of view was also written like this It may be an interesting experimental writing style but it didn t appeal to me The story also moves so slowly that it becomes uninteresting to read It is too bad because this book touches on important themes, such as the worth of women as they age and honesty online, but the poor writing and slow story made this a very difficult and tedious read Thank you to Edelweiss and Other Press for an advanc...

    This reminded me of Italo Cavino s If On A Winter Night a Traveller than Dangerous Liaisons Whereas it has been compared to that epistolary 17th century masterpiece, its abrupt leaps from one narrator to another, each layering a different meaning on the subject, and providing a hea...

    Wow If you are a woman over 50or frankly a woman of any age, you ll need some time to digest, contemplate, and regroup after this beautifully rendered twisty cautionary tale Who You Think I Am by Camille Laurens beautifully translated from the French by Adriana Hunter , had me utterly spellbound In such a slim volume, Laurens manages to give us an unflinching look at female aging, and the wealth of double standards that go along with it Go die Is that indeed the message that society, and men, send older women, perceiving them useless now that their youth, beauty, and fertility have faded This is a novel presents several characters, some of whom are real and some of whom are avatars on social media This very real phenomenon of pretending to be someone else on the Internet Facebook in this case is fascinating Can ...

    I was excited by the description of Who You Think I Am but was sorely disappointed Prepare for one of my shortest reviews of all time I thought the story sounded interesting with a woman creating a fake social media account to keep tabs on her ex, but it was impossible for me to get into the story or connect with Claire This is a short novel at 196 pages but I must confess that I gave up on page 51 There are so many long run on sentences and it s confusing at first who is talking and who she is talking to I can only think of one or two occasions where I put a book down and didn t finish it, but it was necessary for my sanity I looked over other reviews once putting it down to see if I am crazy and this is actually a fabulous novel, but it appeared that 3 4 other reviews agreed with me regarding the difficult to read writing sty...
