5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite out of all the Oprah Book Club Selections.
This book reminds me of cross between Peyton Place and Short Cuts (The Robert Altman movie). These people put the fun in dysfunction. Well, it was fun to read. There is so much going on and all of it enthralling. When I ordered this book I had no idea it was 740 pages long.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite out of all the Oprah Book Club Selections., 28 Oct 1999
This review is from: Songs in Ordinary Time (Paperback)
This book reminds me of cross between Peyton Place and Short Cuts (The Robert Altman movie). These people put the fun in dysfunction. Well, it was fun to read. There is so much going on and all of it enthralling. When I ordered this book I had no idea it was 740 pages long. It sat around my house for a month before I decided to tackle it and when I started reading I could not put it down. I kept telling myself 50 more pages and I'll take a break, but 50 became 75 then 100 and I read this book in 3 days. It would make a great movie. If you enjoy reading, you'll enjoy this book.
