5.0 out of 5 stars an inspired novel, September 12, 2011
This review is from: The Adults: A Novel (Paperback)
I have attempted to describe why this book is so moving to many friends since completing it just a few days ago. Aryn Kyle's review (above) puts into words the feelings I have for it. Although this book had a somewhat slow start and was at first difficult to navigate as the author's writing style takes some getting used to (jumps from different points in the protagonists life), the book was entirely captivating. Emily's small realizations about her life and life in general are genuine and those that we all make come to in our lives. I enjoyed that the author painted flaws and redeeming qualities in each character she drafted. The story also blurrs the lines of morality and reveals that life is not cut-and-dry - sometimes we do not make the best choices, but we certainly have to live with them. This doesn't make us bad, instead makes us human. Great read and entirely memorable.
