I had to give you my view of this book after reading the other review which was so at odds with my feelings! I thought this was a great book, an interesting and absorbing read, - yes the bones of the story could be thought fantastical but then so are the events of many "everyday" lives. Morgan is totally believable and his relationship with the young family grows and matures - not predictably but that's the joy of this book, you're not quite sure what might happen next. The story was engrossing - I came online to buy it for my sisters for christmas as I was so taken with it.
I've read a lot of Anne Tyler and always liked her style and subject matter, and this is one of the best.

Format: Paperback
I have to start by saying that I generally love Anne Tyler's books, but this was, for me, a big let-down. It starts off well, with the usual wonderful characterisations and detail that you associate with her writing, but once I'd got a bit past half way it dawned on me that I just didn't like Morgan, the "star" of the book. He comes across as selfish and just a bit unbelievable, which also goes for the plot (at least, what there is of it.)I sort of felt that she was pretty much making it up as she went along, and I persevered until I was about two-thirds of the way through, and then quite suddenly I'd had enough and gave up and flipped to the end to find out what happened. I won't spoil the plot, but I would say that if you've got as far as half way then the end is largely predictable. I just wanted to get hold of Morgan and give him a good slap!

Format: Paperback
Eccentric and extraordinary, Morgan lives an unreal existence in a real world. His life and passing is an almost purposeless irrelevance on most other people's lives. Morgan's influence on at least one though is profound and meaningful in a laughable enchanting way.

Format: Paperback
Anne Tyler is definitely one of the greatest contemporary American writers with a wonderful way with words and an unparallelled ability to portray fully rounded characters, people with whom you can usually identify. So I approached this book with my usual eager anticipation but I'm afraid it failed to deliver, for me anyway. This time I found I couldn't really believe in the characters of Morgan and Emily. Only Bonnie, as the disdained wife, rang true.

If you are new to Anne Tyler I would recommend you start with one of her other books.
