This is a difficult book for me to rate As a big fan of Robin Hobb novels I ve been looking forward to reading something with Megan Lindholm s name on it Cloven Hooves seemed thematically right down my alley and in many ways it did not disappointThe author is a master at frustrating the reader by putting the protagonist through one injustice after another Unlike works by Hobb these injustices take place in the most mundane domestic of settings Be prepared to read a lot about cleaning houses and doing the shopping The injustices build gradually higher until they re as unbearable for the reader as they are the protagonist Escape becomes necessaryCloven Hooves is a complex book exploring the expectations put upon women The protagonist Evelyn tries so hard to meet those expectations but within her is the desire to be free To be wild This manifests in her love for the faun which exists at the edges of her reality urging her to leave the house and go into the forestYet while Evelyn has a simmering strength of character below the surface she is so often a passive protagonist going where she is led and rarely standing up for herself in any way that goes beyond mere whining Though her character journey from passive wife to free individual is part of the theme of the novel she never escapes being reliant on men in her life

    Was going to give this an added star simply because I can see what the author was trying to do and up to a certain point I think she achieved it but my own experience reading this book simply cannot let me give it anything above one without feeling like it'd be disingenous From never fully being able to connect to the pr

    Couldn't even make it past 100 pages The main character is whiny and annoying highly focused on needing the men in her life to define her despite trying to insist otherwise and there is very little in the way of story progression even a third of the way through the book
