The Misfits - Arthur Miller


***
“A story of four lost souls - the beautiful Roslyn who has never belonged to anyone or anything, and three other misfits who roam the open land existing on the little money made from riding in rodeos - who meet in Reno to discover that freedom has its price, and the heart its rules.”

This isn’t my usual sort of book… well, apart from the whole part of it being a vintage Penguin book. Can we take a moment to drool over that? Okay, let’s move on.

It came in my monthly Bookishly package, where I get a vintage paperback, tea, and stationary each month. I’ll stick a link to the website with the links at the bottom of this.

I’ve started to like American literature since reading A Streetcar Named Desire in English Literature this year. I don’t think I would have picked it up if it wasn’t for being forced into it in class. But… I’ve grown to love American lit.

I read this in a day. And got emotional while I was at it. I hadn’t heard of it before and definitely wouldn’t have picked it up in a bookshop. But it surprised me. It was so full of emotions and lovable characters (even though I think a few of them weren’t supposed to be lovable)

This is a short review because I don’t know what to say about the book. Apart from I’m in love with it. And that it was amazing. And everyone should read it (if you're lucky enough to find a copy).
