    Serrano s style is simple and catching The way the story is written depicts real live verbal narration The way each woman talk, each chapter, is messy and contains so much life experience I mean messy because we start telling our story, and that story has sub stories, and we want to tell them all I think the readers have to be aware that there are little triggers or really hard stories and events during the narration.The ending was a bit rush in my opinion but I think I understand why th Serrano s style is simple and catching The way the story is written depicts real live verbal narration The way each woman talk, each chapter, is messy and contains so much life experience I mean messy because we start telling our story, and that story has sub stories, and we want to tell them all I think the readers have to be aware that there are little triggers or really hard stories and events during the narration.The ending was a bit rush in my opinion but I think I understand why they were all together, and this is one of the reasons of the 4 star rating They all had their on story, lives, history, and they all need support and closure If you are a fan of contemporary adult fiction and literary fiction, this book can be a good read for you.I gave it a 4 start rating because of the social impact and implications that the author covers during the novel How humans tend to continue in a circle repeating their patents mistakes, how society is hard ...

    Ten Women by Marcela Serrano is supposed to be, well, I m not exactly sure If it s supposed to be a slice of life novel, the slice of each life that the reader receives is so small that they re still left hungry after ten pieces If it s supposed to be a story about mental illness, it s hard to know what the author is trying to say about it It feels like there was supposed to be a story here, but the author flounders with the idea to the point that all we re left with is exposition Even thoug Ten Women by Marcela Serrano is supposed to be, well, I m not exactly sure If it s supposed to be a slice of life novel, the slice of each life that the reader receives is so small that they re still left hungry after ten pieces If it s supposed to be a story about mental illness, it s hard to know what the author is trying to say about it It feels like there was supposed to be a story here, but the author flounders with the idea to the point that all we re left with is exposition Even though there are ten different women, including the therapist, it s hard to tell any of them apart Most of them just aren t memorable The t...
