Look at Me by Jennifer Egan

By accident I’ve ended up reading 2 books on the trot that cover terrorists entering the USA. After Pygmy I’ve been reading Look at Me by Jennifer Egan.

In Look at Me we follow 4 people and their lives around the town of Rockford, Illinois. One of those is an under cover terrorist of some sort, who remains a mystery right through the book – to be honest I’m not entirely sure of his role within the story. The main character is Charlotte, a model who has a horrific car crash leading to her face having to be re-built ending her career. We then explore the meaning of fame, looks, and more.

It’s an interesting read, but a bit meandering for me.
