This review is from: Big Brother (Hardcover)
I read this over the weekend, as it was a fast-paced read. I do recommend it, but it's not an easy read. It deals with issues of sibling relationships and also our relationship with food - the big brother being precisely that. Pandora is shocked by the extent of her brother's obesity when she meets him again. We also have the contrast of her marriage to a man obsessed with his health and fitness, who appears to eat only brown rice and broccoli. A lot of the narrative is taken up with analysis of food and what it really means to us, but mostly this book is a story about a sister and brother. I was totally caught up in the story and then the author did something which made me go 'woa what!!!' Dont want to give any spoilers but would be interested to hear what others think of this sometimes disturbing but welll written read.
