The Museum of Perfect Scenes by Kirran Thompson
The Museum of Perfect Scenes is a quirky, strange, yet intriguing story. It reads almost like a stream of consciousness, as a tale told first by Betty Brown, then by her friend Cosima, and so on.
The plot is simple but still highly intricate, and difficult to describe, almost like a puzzle with pieces scattered throughout. But it starts with Betty Brown talking about her past, and how she keeps a bottle in which she places coins for every mistake she makes. And there are plenty of those over the years. There are so many fabulous little titbits scattered throughout this story, and it’s told in an odd but entertaining way.
In the end, I found the characters engaging and fun, and the tale itself unique and thought-provoking. A great little read!
