& Sons — Review

June 11, 2014

It’s been a while since I read & Sons and, to be honest, I’m still not entirely sure how I feel about it. At its core it is a family saga, which I generally love, but there are some bizarre twists and turns where it kind of lost me along the way.

There was so much dysfunction. And while that can of course be interesting to read, the dysfunction of the characters in & Sons was kind of just exhausting.

This was just one of those books that, for whatever reason, didn’t click with me. It is incredibly well written though, and the characters are well-developed. Given these considerations I would still recommend it for readers who enjoy literary fiction and family sagas. It just wasn’t my cup of tea.
