Perfect Marriage of Novelist and Reader

Stayed in bed with a bad head cold today and luxuriated in this sure-footed, lyrical, and beautifully read novel. Few works of literature have been able to capture the emotional geography of a young woman's marital affair as well as this psychologically astute work. Coupled with Heather O'Neill's narration, Enright's novel offers an experience of rare immersion and intimacy for the reader.

Good and realistic, but out of sync

Although this story documents an affair and is very bittersweet and realistic, it starts as one story and ends up as another. This story construct does not really work.. Most interesting and bittersweet is how people making decisions to leave a relationship cannot really let go of the last relationship.
