Astonish Me

By Maggie Shipstead

What’s it about? Ballet!  This novel takes you into the world of ballet.  Joan is a member of the ensemble; a dancer who knows she will never be talented enough to be a star.  She finds herself pregnant and the novel follows her as she builds a new life.
What did it make me think about? The world of dance is a cold, cold place!
Should I read it? This was another good quick beach read.  Their are no real surprises but you turn the pages anyway.  It is quick and keeps your interest, but it is predictable and the writing is predictable as well!
