A Separation 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.

Not a book for the depressed or sad among us. Interesting & somewhat suspenseful but gloomy throughout. No joy even in nature - a burned landscape to match the embittered emotions of most of the characters. Meditations on life, marriage, death, grief, guilt & purpose. A heavy short book.

I couldn't finish it. The main character is *always* inside her own head, and the author's love of commas - once noticed, never not noticed - just killed it for me. I never even got to when the SPOILER happens.

Superb book with terrific writing and great phrasing. It was billed as a psychological novel and it was. The main character living through a separation that had to be kept secret was fascinating as was her mother in law's oppressive nature. The scenes and food in Greece were appetizing as were the hotel characters.
