It was good. Very long. So long, there was a nod to its longest in the novel itself once its revealed as a “memoir.” I liked it well enough. Not as much as Wellness. It didn’t connect with me totally, but it was enjoyable to read, if not completely credible.

Peppered with great stuff - especially the opening - but never quite got me in a vice like The Nix did.

I enjoyed it for the first 150 pages and then I started to really enjoy it. By drawing in so many threads, academia, rural life, East Coast elites, parenthood, motherhood specifically, placebo effects, psychology, marriage...it all worked really well and had a very emotional ending that was nearly suspiciously satisfying, but I decided to just enjoy it and not be a cynic.

While I found this novel a bit difficult to enter, ultimately it was incredibly rewarding. It unfolds the story of two individuals and their partnership, revealing the secrets they keep from each other and, often, themselves. I found this story of how we can begin to see ourselves clearly, and how that allows us to finally truly connect with others, moving and hopeful, "heartbreaking" blurbs on the back of the book notwithstanding. There are funny moments and sad moments, moments of insight and moments of confusion. This is a novel about humanness, the ways our pasts and the stories we tell ourselves about our pasts shape us, and the opportunity we have to "try out those [stories] that are most humane, most generous, most beautiful, most loving."… (mais)
