Coming of age in Alaska's fishing industry
What did you like best about The Alaskan Laundry? What did you like least?
Fascination with the fishing industry is what hooked me on this book.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Deeper character development for the protagonist and key characters. It takes a long time to learn why she's made the choices that led her to Alaska, but even then the answers aren't very satisfying. It's enjoyable, if light.
Do you think The Alaskan Laundry needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Without giving a spoiler alert, I'd say the end is crafted for a sequel.
Any additional comments?
To me, this reads like a YA coming of age story - and I read a fair amount of YA material. A decent debut novel, but I wouldn't rush to buy the author's next book.
