    (108)

    Judd is the youngest of the four Mulvaney children - three boys and a girl - on their parents’ lush farm in upstate New York. In his childhood, Judd is swept along by the sheer energy of the Mulvaneys and their wealth of beloved family stories. But now, 30 years old, Judd looks back through his memories to tell the secrets that eventually ripped apart the fabric of his storybook family.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Joyce Carol Oates and/or Scott Shina?

    No the story could have been told in half an hour I just felt it would not move forward


    What could Joyce Carol Oates have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Cut out so much unecessary descriptions and stop keeping moving backwards instead of getting on with the story


    How could the performance have been better?

    Not so much rambling and cut the book down by about three quarters


    What character would you cut from We Were the Mulvaneys?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    This is my first book written by Joyce Carol Oates definitely not my cup of tea
