..and it's not necessarily what really happened, at least according to the other participants. The characters are finely draw, honest and interesting even when distasteful and unappealling in their habits. The part about the psychic in Ypsilanti is too funny - you want to read it out loud to a friend. The last chapter I have read several times. Life is sad, funny, passionate and full of missteps- but our time here is short - we should appreciate it.

Never has a book kept me up all night. Feast of Love is a rare look at the passion behind what really makes a relationship work. The way you are able to relate to there struggles and emotion is nothing short of outstanding. Highly charged. A must for any avid reader.

Only one of the most brilliant books I have ever read. Ever. Read. I have read a LOT of books. Like Pet Sematary, I was disappointed in watching the movie (for different reasons), though the movie was probably in all actuality quite good. Reading the book several years beforehand in effect spoiled any motion picture concept to come. It is raw emotion. Pure, raw, intense energy, even in the slowest-paced parts of this work. If Bret Easton Elis (who I like) was an even better writer, and left behind the morose for the *real* morbidity of the human emotional condition, this would be the product. Absolutely incredible.

Charles Baxter compiles characters that are real and a story that flows.

This is the first Charles Baxter novel I have ever read and I simply loved it. The characters are living, breathing people that, like us all are living, loving and are interconnected in a way that is entertaining as well as poignant. I highly recommend.

I am currently deployed and my best friend sends me random books to read. At first when I got it in the mail I was half tempted to throw the book to the side and just watch the movie. I am glad I didn't. Once I started reading the book, I couldn¿t put it down. When I was finished with it, I watched the movie and I am just going to say, the movie does NOT compare to the book. Chloe and Oscar are amazing in the book you feel like you know them and want the love that they share together. In the movie their meeting and other life changing events weren¿t so emotional because of that! I highly recommend the book. I did not think the movie was worth watching once I read it.

It was my first Baxter book and completely adored it! The Feast of Love tops my favorite book list. Though it took a while for me to get into it, I became addicted. The book is a thinker and makes you say 'oooh.' I loved his style, the humor and the sadness. I bought my second Baxter book, Saul and Patsy.
