Etta and Otto and Russell and James by Emma Hooper

Title: Etta and Otto and Russell and James
Author: Emma Hooper
Published: 277

Pages: 277
Rating: 4/5

Etta's biggest unfulfilled wish is to see the sea, so one day, she takes some food, her boots and a rifle, and starts walking the 2000 miles to the sea. Otto, her husband, is left behind with only his memories, patiently waiting for her to return.

While reminiscing, we learn the story of Etta and Otto and Russell and James.

I quite enjoyed this book. It has a sort of eerie weirdness to it that I like.

My favourite part about this book is the writing. It's written a little differently than other books, and I felt like it enhanced the story and suited the characters very well.

This is the kind of book where you're never going to figure out everything. It has its mysteries that are just there, and they don't really need to be figured out. It's a book very much open for interpretation, and as I like open endings as well, I thought this was great.

I still felt like the characters of this were really clear, and I really liked the setting. I felt like I could wholly picture everything, even though it's not overly descriptive.

Overall, this was a really good book. I would recommend it if you like adult fiction.
