Who is Jay Fingers?
It took me about two days to read Guestlist by Jay Fingers. The book is engaging, with great character development and a good story line. His use of words created the perfect picture of life in NYC. I became so involved in the book that I nearly hated one of the main characters, Napoleon, and his antics so I am hoping for a bit of reprieve in either another story or a part II. The main characters, Juliet and Ava, align with many of “our” personal tales of coming of age, relationships, and growth. I loved how there are key story lines around the male characters because this isn’t found in a lot of urban literature. The last few pages confused me a bit, I understood the story was winding down, but it seemed to have just stopped. The conversation between Mere and Juliet needs clarity or there’s something wrong with the eBook version because a few paragraphs repeated.
Overall, great story. It makes you feel that you’re 20 something in NYC. I am eagerly awaiting Jay’s next tale.
