    Kritters Ramblings

    Rarely, do I read reviews for books before reading them - no need to spoil the fun, but for some reason I did on this one. Depressing was the overall theme for the reviews, so I went in a skeptic and hoping that this book wasn't the downer it was potrayed to be.


    A story that centers around the two remaining sisters of a family that started with three. With a less than wonderful childhood, these girls lost their mom early on and with that they lost their father to another woman. A sister passing away and distance made this reconnection over Thanksgiving awkward and dramatic. Add in random guests and one of the sister's two daughters, this book was even awkward in the reading.


    A connection between the book that sister Cynthia is writing about Mark Twain's three daughters and their childhood is interesting as she continues to give details about this book she is writing about the Twain family. It was great to read this book in the week leading up to Thanksgiving, but I am not sure I would have enjoyed it if I had read it at another time of the year.

    Good for discussions

    I didn't feel any connection between the characters. But, this was actually brilliant, because this is the gist of dysfunctional familes. The problem is that I also was unable to make a connection with the protagonist - or any other character. Having said all that, the story wasn't disjointed. The author tied everybody together through the use of the protagonist's occupation. There is a ton of "stuff" in the book ideal for analytical discussion.

    Difficult to relate the book to the title.

    I read the book all the way through although it was not as good a book as I would have liked. I would not read this book again.

    I read almost nonstop, minus the time I'm taking to write this and the time I'm forced to spend at school :-) and this book is good... it reminds me of my own life actually... take out the dad's sickness and divorce, i think it would've been better, but it's very good!

    I've had some issues at home, such as going back, which is what the main character struggles in. Good novel :-)

    I was bored by this book

    This book was disappointing to me. The characters seemed cold and unrealistic. And the ending was a bit foggy to me.
