Very appreciative of Celadon Books for providing me a copy of this book to read in exchange for a review through NetGalley and their Celadon Readers program.

Jean Hanff Korelitz is a lovely writer, that much is clear from this book. I definitely see it as inspiration from a writing point-of-view of how to write immersive characters.

But as a reader, it just wasn't my cup of tea--it's an in depth character drama that you have to be in the mood for, and the cast was a tad unlikeable for my taste. Which makes the length of the book that much harder. But that doesn't mean I can't appreciate the beauty of the prose, and that makes this novel really difficult to review.

This was more of a subjective miss than anything I could point out as problematic for me. But I did appreciate the look, as always. I would absolutely read more from this author in the future.
