This review is from: The Accidental Tourist (Kindle Edition)
The Accidental Tourist is yet again a wonderful novel by Anne Tyler.
The tragic death of Macon and Sarah's son Ethan has led to the collapse of their marriage.
Macon writes travel guides and before one trip he boards his dog and meets dog trainer Muriel. She's divorced and has a 7 year old son who seems to be allergic to everything.
Anne Tyler writes beautifully, this novel is sad and funny in equal measure. She makes everyday simple things in life so interesting to read about. I loved how she described the lives of Macon's sister and two brothers along with his boss Julian. I did find this book a slow starter but once I got into it I didn't want to put it down, another novel I didn't want to end.
