The Latecomer is a multi-layered dysfunctional family drama about three triplets and the late arrival of their sister, who arrives 17 years after they were born.All the characters are skillfully fully developed and interestingly have very different outlooks on life within and outside the "family". The main characters are triplets who never really cared for each other and are so real with flaws. Which is what made me want to read this book. I will say it's written well, entertaining and is an intricately woven family drama. It's the first book that I have read by Jean Hanff Korelitz. I loved how it was written with it being broken down into parts so you get different perspectives and loved the plot. But I didn't enjoy the characters at all. I would recommend this book to others that like family dramas and don't have any triggers for emotional issues.
