If you could sum up My Latest Grievance in three words, what would they be?
Insightful, intelligent, funny
What other book might you compare My Latest Grievance to and why?
To Kill a Mockingbird because it's told from a child's point of view, a funny and astute child.
What does Mia Barron bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Great voices, just terrific.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Yes, mostly the ending.
Any additional comments?
I'm sad that it's over and there is nothing I can find to follow it up!
Heard so many wonderful things about Elinor Lipman but this was a huge disappointment. I'm not even a quarter of the way through but it's a toss up whether I'll continue with it. there's no perceivable plot and little dialogue, just a narrative by a young girl who is mildly amusing, but not very interesting. Her parents are downright boring and the newest character, the ex-wife is just silly. As to the "discovery" of this first marriage of the narrator's dad, well, it's just not interesting. I really don't care about the details. I really regret wasting my money on this one. Dang! Wish I had read the Amazon reviews and not just the Audible reviews, which turned out to be a bit misleading for me.
