I am a literary fiction buff. A great read makes me happy. I love photography and Canon equipment. I write one or two sentence reviews.
Very entertaining family of dysfunction or maybe just your normal crazy people. Tropper's voice is so insightful one moment the next moment I could give him such a kick for his disparaging descriptions of older people. Anyone one from forty-four to sixty and older, watch out.
Not my favorite Listen. Kept hoping it would get better. Not terrible but I would have missed anything if I skipped the book.
The story wasn't bad but the writer needs to find more creative ways to describe what is happening. I never enjoy a book in which the word "fuck" is the most used verb and adjective. It gives the story a juvenile tone.
J. Trooper composes each sentence with a mixture of blinding truth and wry humor. A delightful tale of family miscommunications during 7 days of mourning.
You really need to have lived inside a family to get this book. I did and I got so much out of hearing the complicated relationships and fiascos
As well as the deep love and devotion
felt. Still resolving issues of my own, I thoroughly enjoyed hearing about others experiencing similar if not worse
Revelations and emotions!
it's the kind of story for those used to qualifying themselves as an, "other, " not quite in step with everyone barely edging on to stumble near pace. But it ends up in an honest and endearing landmark of growth and now that it's over I crave more of these delightful characters that I've grown accustomed with.
This family has its issues, but what family doesn't? Only after losing their father to cancer and being compelled to spend seven days grieving together, does this family read discover it's connections and, yes, even it's love for one another. Very excellent read that will warm your heart and make you laugh and perhaps even shed a tear or two.
