    Story
    (527)

    Haunted by the freak accident that killed their father when they were children, Jim and Bob Burgess escaped from their Maine hometown of Shirley Falls for New York City as soon as they possibly could. Jim, a sleek, successful corporate lawyer, has belittled his bighearted brother their whole lives, and Bob, a Legal Aid attorney who idolizes Jim, has always taken it in stride. But their long-standing dynamic is upended when their sister, Susan - the Burgess sibling who stayed behind - urgently calls them home.

    Molly-o says: "Loved, loved, loved it!"
    "Not worth your time"

    What disappointed you about The Burgess Boys?

    I enjoyed Olive Kitteridge, so I thought why not listen to another of Strout's books but this book was so boring I just wanted it to be over. Everything in the story was predictable.


    Has The Burgess Boys turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    What didn’t you like about Cassandra Campbell’s performance?

    it was fine


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Burgess Boys?

    so much it is hard to say


    Any additional comments?

    Sorry, I just did not think the writing was very good. Best of luck with a new book
