    From the author of the best-selling Three Junes comes an intimate new work of fiction: a tale of two sisters, together and apart, told in their alternating voices over 25 years. Louisa Jardine is the older one, the conscientious student, precise and careful: the one who yearns for a good marriage, an artistic career, a family. Clem, the archetypal youngest, is the rebel: uncontainable, iconoclastic, committed to her work but not to the men who fall for her daring nature.

    Didn't care for the narration. Julia Glass needs to stick to writing. Book was fine. Sibling rivalry - I just can't relate.

  • The Garden of Last Days: A Novel

    Set in the seamy underside of American life at the moment before the world changed, it juxtaposes lust for domination with hunger for connection, sexual violence with family love. It seizes the listener by the throat with the same psychological tension, depth, and realism that characterized Andre Dubus' #1 bestseller, House of Sand and Fog, and has an even greater sense of the dark and anguished places in the human heart.

    "A waste of time."
    Overall

    I should have paid attention to the previous reviews. This book is boring. The diatribes of the terrorists were of absolutely no interest. The stripper but good girl is so clich?. The only character that held my attention in the slightest was A.J. This book just dose not compare with the House Between Sand and Fog. Not even close!

    I had everything a woman could want... My husband, James. The house on the lake. My life. Our perfect life. And then Alex came to visit. The first time I saw my husband's best friend, I didn't like him. Didn't like how James changed when he was around, didn't like how his penetrating eyes followed me everywhere.

    "Flithy Dialog"
    Overall

    Thought read something light and romantic for a change. After 1 hour of the most vulgar and crass dialog I had ever experienced, I deleted this book. If there's a story to it, I never got there. Just a waste of money and time.

  • Indecision: A Novel

    Benjamin Kunkel's brilliantly comic debut novel concerns one of the central maladies of our time: a pathological indecision that turns abundance into an affliction and opportunity into a curse. Dwight B. Wilmerding is only 28, but he's having a midlife crisis. Of course, living a dissolute, dormlike existence in a tiny apartment and working in tech support at the pharmaceutical giant Pfizer are not especially conducive to wisdom.

    Gerard says: "well it leads you to think its good"
    "Awful"
    Overall

    Billed as a comedy and a coming of age novel – it is neither. Drugged self indulgent ramblings do not move a person to maturity. If you want comedy, read Confederacy of Dunces. If you want coming of age, read Christ the Lord out of Egypt.
