Kinder Than Solitude | [Yiyun Li]

Kinder Than Solitude

When Moran, Ruyu, and Boyang were young, they were involved in a mysterious “accident” in which a friend of theirs was poisoned. Grown up, the three friends are separated by distance and personal estrangement. Moran and Ruyu live in the United States, Boyang in China; all three are haunted by what really happened in their youth, and by doubt about themselves. In California, Ruyu helps a local woman care for her family and home, and avoids entanglements, as she has done all her life. In Wisconsin, Moran visits her ex-husband, whose kindness once overcame her flight into solitude

    "Uninteresting, unsympathetic characters"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone with a lot of patience


    Has Kinder Than Solitude turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The themes were promising, but I found it impossible to care about the characters.
