Overview

The Rehearsal by Eleanor Catton

A teacher's affair with his underage student jolts a group of teenage girls into a new awareness of their own power. Their nascent desires surprise even themselves as they find the practice room where they rehearse with their saxophone teacher is the safe place where they can test out their abilities to attract and manipulate. It seems their every act is a performance, every platform a stage.

But when the local drama school turns the story into their year-end show, the real world and the world of the theater are forced to meet. With the dates of the performances—the musicians' and the acting students'—approaching, the dramas, real and staged, begin to resemble each other, until they merge in a climax worthy of both life and art.

I read this book because I loved The Luminaries so very much. While this book was written beautifully, the story itself was lacking in my opinion. I wanted to give up about 1/3 of the way through, but I  wanted to see how it all tied together in the end - and again, I loved The Luminaries. When I finished the book I was still not attached to any of the characters and all I felt was disappointment.
