I agree with the other reviewers who felt that it was depressing, boring and hard to keep listening to. I also kept thinking there must be more to the story, but there never was. I don't think there was even one character in the book who wasn't unhappy. I wish I hadn't wasted my time finishing the book.
I loved this book, but it's not for everybody. It's about a funny, Italian family in New Jersey, with the 40 year old interior decorator son as the narrator and main character. I thought that the dialogue was very funny, and touching at times. But there is a lot of description of interior design, the fabrics, decor, etc. I loved the descriptions, but as I said, not everyone would enjoy them.
