Thank you, Anne Tyler

As a 45 year old man, I found Delia to be expressing my emotions perfectly. And since she has, now I don't need to leave my wife of 23 years. I admire Tyler's courage and skill in portraying the nagging unfulfillment and downright rejection we feel in our marriages and ...
As a 45 year old man, I found Delia to be expressing my emotions perfectly. And since she has, now I don't need to leave my wife of 23 years. I admire Tyler's courage and skill in portraying the nagging unfulfillment and downright rejection we feel in our marriages and families, while still believing in the power of marriage and family to connect and support each other.

This book was too slow paced and predictable. I reccomend it for adults, because they would most likely understand married life better, but it is good for young adults and teens too. There is some intimate kissing, but no sex,if that's what your worried about. I didnt think it was worth the money, but you might disagree. Try it and see. You might enjoy it.

    Eeeh...just okay.

    I have to say, I could actually relate to the main character of this book, but only to a point. The story is of a passage into independence and liberation for a woman who has never experienced either in her lifetime. I couldn't get over the feeling of abandonment for her family. The manner in which she took this journey was intensely selfish. The ending was truly unbelievable and unsatisfying.
