Where does Small Mercies rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Small Mercies is one of the top few books I've listened to on Audible and one of the first about which I've been moved to write a review. The ability of the author to pull you into the day to day family life of the Amendolas is really special.
What other book might you compare Small Mercies to and why?
The Art of Fielding comes to mind for two reasons. First, there is a backdrop of sports, but it definitely isn't a sports novel. Second, it is character driven and you really get to know the people in the book.
Which scene was your favorite?
There is an early scene in the book where older brother Peter is being informed that he's being "worked out" of his law firm's partnership. The scene is so realistic in terms of the characters present, the thoughts in Peter's mind and the conversation.
Any additional comments?
I'd encourage you to take a trip with the Amendolas and get to know them. It's a lovely journey.

I devoured this book, and now I'm sad that it's over. I miss the Amendola family already. This book is a beautifully drawn and realistic portrait of a family and its reaction to a great loss. At times I laughed, at others I cried. I highly recommend it, and I hope EddIe Joyce continues to produce novels. My best listen in quite some time.
