Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 2 May 2010
If you are looking for a fast paced novel with lots of action then this book is not for you. If, however, you are looking for a book where you are a fly-on-the-wall in the dramas and minutiae of everyday life then this may well please. There are some beautiful descriptions although sometimes these could go on for too long and become too involved and cease to serve any real purpose to the story in hand. That said, there are some wonderful glimpses where one does become more involved in the story with Emmie. Also Tassie's relationship with her brother, without giving anything away, was extremely well portrayed at the end of the book. On the whole there were moments when the book picked up speed and then there were moments where it just lost itself completely. Lorrie Moore would go off on some descriptive rambling that served no real value other than as an exercise in rather lovely descriptive writing. Somewhat superfluous though. I feel that it was probably a 3 and a half star more than a 3 star. In places is could be 4 star and in other places 3 star if this makes sense.
