This is one of those titles that truly earns the distinction: unputdownable. It's that riveting. It's like an accident you can't turn away from, and this starts early on in the book. The conflict that Burgess crafts doesn't feel contrived but authentic, especially if you've lived through even one tough relationship as many of us have. Speaking of relationships, Love and Happiness strikes that cord in a big way. While usual story conflicts feature man vs. man, man vs. nature, or man vs. himself, Love and Happiness tackles Man vs. Relationships. I discovered this by trying to figure out who the good and bad guys were.
The main characters, Karen and Chris come complete with baggage that is revealed throughout the narrative. They're regular, flawed folk like you and I, in love with each other but with different want and needs, different backgrounds and different mindsets. It's easy to pick your poison as you read the novel as to who you can relate too. Will you end up team Karen or Team Chris? I was team Chris all the way. In the end, Burgess does a magnificent job of tying it all up and at the same time showing the easy answer is ... there is no easy answer. If you like drama, grit, and conflict and have time to read for a spell ('cause you won't put it down) you'll adore Love and Happiness.
5 star book!!!
First I can describe Karen in just one word...BITCH!
Here is a woman who has a loving husband and beautiful children and all she can think about is herself. It's not like she put any effort into the relationship, or tried to make it better, no she made it worst! I felt bad for Chris and I could rant on and on about the book, but this is a book where you have to read to believe, it is definitely true to life, but sad at times.
He speaks from the perspective of a woman and a man inside a tumultuous relationship. His writing style pulls you in and leaves you fully enthralled in the intimate lives of the characters. Just when I would decide the woman was the villain he would break through another layer and I'd be on her side again. I found myself siding with Karen and then Chris, repeatedly alternating between the two as I read on.
What amazed me the most was how accurately he portrayed a woman's inner dialogue, deep emotions, and desires. He really nailed it.
He moved from Karen's perspective to Chris's with such precision of distinction and believability. I truly lost myself in this story with each dramatic turn. It had sultry seduction, romance, heartbreak, and passion. It broke my heart and then filled it up again. It was a great escape. I can't wait for more from this author!
