Not my usual style, but a pretty enjoyable novel.
The subject is difficult but it is told in such a way that it takes the edge off. I found myself laughing out loud at the views of the teenagers in the story. Henry makes no excuses for any member of his family and tells their stories in a completely unbiased way. Loved this book.
I loved this book! It is a teenagers view of his family's struggles, including his mother's affair - discovered via e-mail. As a mother of teenagers myself, I loved the idea of seeing the parents, friends, siblings and activities of the family through the son's eyes.
A painful tale of the reality of a marriage, a family, and the longings of each individual which can be lost in the midst of it all.
Thought this was quite believable and well done. Interesting concept for a story - a son discovering his sexulaity while discovering his mother's duplicity.
I liked this book. It is subtle...and does a good job exploring complicated relationships in a unique and intelligent family. It would be difficult to compare this novel to any I have ever read before. Fresh and thoughtful, it would not be enjoyed by anyone looking for an "action" read.
A funny thing happened to me while I was listening to this book. I thought the main character was the author. When I finished, I looked at the author's name, and then remembered that it was Jane Hamilton. I was blown away.
I really liked the book. It's slow at first, but you get into it, and you're hooked.
Very well written. I'd definitely recommend it.
The characters were not likeable and it was generally depressing.
I didn't care for this book. It was not at all what I expected it would be.
