Sad that previous reviewers did not give this story a chance. True, the narration detracts from an otherwise insightful dissection of sibling relationships. The house the children inherit is the most lovable of the characters. If you are a fan of Shriver's, give this book a chance. You will be rewarded with an almost Dickensian heartfelt American novel.
this book is like one long whine!!! I just wanted to scream "Get A Life!". It was actually painful to hear and I would imagine just as painful to read. We read it for my book group and one other woman said no one should ever have to read this book. I think it holds the top spot as the all time WORST book I have ever read/listened to.

I have read most of Lional Shriver's books and enjoyed them very much but this does not reach her usual standard. She does not have enough to say and it is padded with dull detail. The book is not helped by the narration of Susan Ericksen and her attempts to adopt an English accent, often mispronouncing words including her assumption that potato rhymes with the English pronounciation of tomato.

Lionel Shriver is fantastic. All her books are very different but never fail to deliver. Her story telling works for me and my to be engaged from page one.
