Goos story, just a little bit too contemplative. The ending surprised me. The first part of the story a bit to long.

Grace Reinhart Sachs is living the only life she ever wanted for herself. Devoted to her husband, a pediatric oncologist at a major cancer hospital, their young son Henry, and the patients she sees in her therapy practice, her days are full of familiar things: She lives in the very New York apartment in which she was raised, and sends Henry to the school she herself once attended. Dismayed by the ways in which women delude themselves, Grace is also the author of a book You Should Have Known, in which she cautions women to really hear what men are trying to tell them.

This book is not a mysterie and classifying it as such will disappoint some readers.

What did you love best about The Son?

Would you be willing to try another book from Jo Nesbo? Why or why not?

I was disappointed but maybe

What about Sean Barrett’s performance did you like?

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Any additional comments?
