  1. I probably shouldn t review this book Five years ago I lost a child Two years ago I lost my husband, in March I lost my daughter in law So for me this was not time to read a book about a tragic death It does remind you, as I remind myself daily, that you must tell family you love them, do something nice for someone you hardly know, say all you need to say before you lose the, because those moments wont come back for even one minute There are no second chances even if you think you can wait anoth [...]


  2. I would not recommend this book to anyone over the eighth grade This is definitely a young adult novel not intended for adults, the characters are completely dull, unlikeable and borderline sociopathic The way this family interacts with each other is completely not believable, even coming from a dysfunctional family perspective Literally painful to read, I am in shock I even got through it I only read to the end because I wanted to know what happened to Lydia Sadly, we never find out I kind of w [...]


  3. The constant strife and lack of character development made this a long miserable read The fact she threw in the gay surprise at the end only confirmed my suspicion that she wanted to write a hot point book I only finished it because it was a book club selection.


  4. To me, this is an exceptionally good book The subject is a dark one the death, at the beginning of the book, of a daughter, Lydia the sister to two siblings who has just turned 16 I don t usually read dark books or watch dark movies But the book is a page turner, and it contains very thoughtful events, circumstances and observations about a dysfunctional but believable family whose problems can apply universally.The book is about relationships and the effects on a father and his children of bein [...]


  5. This author writes with a heavy hand She wants to make sure you get it so she tells you over and over and over again that this is a dysfunctional family That the parents are living out their frustrations through their children That their children are submissive and unhappy That their family experience racial discrimination To make sure you get it she draws stereotypical portraits of her characters After a while the reader feels he is being clobbered with a literary hammer If the author only had [...]


  6. YAWN Got to page 135 and gave up Had a hard time keeping my attention No feeling, no character development What about the poor girl Almost halfway through and not much to say about her.


  7. This book kept my interest throughout While it is often described as a story of interracial marriage and resulting interpersonal problems, I believe it is actually a story of the kind of conflicts that can occur when parental expectations for their children go beyond wishing them to develop their own talents to their very best to either expecting them to achieve specific successes in areas that the parents were unable to meet for various reasons or to meet goals that are beyond the children s ab [...]


  8. This is a novel where the gradual revelation of character is key, so if you require your reading to be full of action you may find this too slow there may be a missing girl but a thriller this is not Conversely, this is a real treat for those who love character development since everyone portrayed is so clear in Celeste Ng s mind that she can convey their very souls to the reader That I felt for all of them, including Lydia, who is dead before the novel begins, shows the author s skill as does t [...]


  9. My copy of this book has a flash on the kindle cover that compares it to The Lonely Bones and I m pretty much baffled at why anybody would have made that claim unless of course EVERY book with a dead teen aged girl gets the same comparison I was expecting a bit of mystery but it was all just too flat for me I hoped to care about the characters but found I really didn t though I felt deeply sorry for the girl s younger sister Hannah who might still have a chance to become something than she d bee [...]
