5.0 out of 5 stars A Fulfilling Read in every way, 4 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Lucky Ones (Paperback)
This is a well-crafted piece of work from a very talented writer. Rachel Cusk knows a thing or two about women, and their "self-referenced tapestries", their lives as mothers, sisters, daughters, and wives. She also understands very well what it means to be a parent, and how children change our lives in ways that are impossible to predict. She fully succeeds in showing us the intricate dynamics of human relationships in families, in friendship, at work.

This book takes you to a hidden world behind closed doors, in quiet villages, or busy towns, to an ocean of deceptively naive conversations, thoughts and events that shape the characters' psychic worlds.

The prose is a delight in itself, full of witty observations combined with a dose of lyric language that goes straight to the point.

I would give ten stars to the book if I could. I haven't enjoyed a book so thoroughly in a very long time. I fully recommend it.
