Book Review: The Dig

Book: The Dig

Author: Anne Burt

Thank you NetGalley and HighBridge Audio for an advanced audio copy.

The Dig is a book that touches on some big topics but fails to fully do each one the justice it deserves. Two Sarajevo-born siblings are saved and adopted by a midwestern family, but that was only the beginning. We follow one sibling, Antonia, during the story.

Antonia is now a lawyer and is on a mission to find her missing brother and uncover secrets in both the present and the past. I was interested in a lot of the plot points but there were just too many to flush them all out fully. I wish more time would have been spent on Antonia’s past than on the problems going on in the present.

Even with my issues, this was still a fun read. It’s fast and will be over before you want it to be. You will hope it’s a little longer so you can get more exposition on some of the more interesting story threads that are barely explored.

I do recommend this book and will definitely look for more from this author in the future.

Final Score 3/5
