Wally Lamb presents characters who are damaged and flawed, which should be enough rationale to like them, but that doesn't always compute. The story of an upcoming wedding between 2 women is told from multiple perspectives, including one of women's (Annie Oh)former husband and children. All events lead up to the wedding day which has an unforseen complication and unpredictable results. Since Annie is an artist, there are some very thoughtful commentaries on art and creativity sprinkled in. All characters ring true and past and present are combined smoothly. Very rich with much depth. Not a beach read, despite the cover. ( )

Its hard to enjoy a book with such unlikeable characters. The main characters were
1.Annie Oh: a self-absorbed artist who was an abused child, abusive mother, angry wife and now the pampered pet of her wife- to be.
2. Orion Oh: preachy, politically correct psychologist and workaholic who ends his career with a scandal.
3. Kent Kelley: paedophile
The other minor characters were actually more interesting and I could empathize with them.
I stuck with it and found out a few things..
It was better to read it than listen to the audiobook. ( I tried both.) Also, the stream of conscious narration took away from an interesting story.
I really like Wally Lamb, but this was a disappointment.
BY the way: Gualtieri Agnello translates to Wally (Walter) Lamb. ( )

Starts slowly, then sucks you in with multiple first-person narratives. Not hard to follow, unlike some similar stories. If you like families and secrets, check this out. ( )

very good. disturbing in parts (family sexual assault and paedophilia). well drawn characters. worth reading more of his work. ( )

Listened to this as an Audible Audio.... The author, Wally Lamb actually was the voice of Orien Oh in the book - that was revealed at the end of the audio book by an interview with the author. Great Book, it captures the intimate details of some very horrific events. The story centers on Annie Oh, divorced with 3 children, an artist with violent depictions, her impending marriage to Vivica (the high powered NY art dealer) and her ex Orien Oh. There are secrets that most of these family members are keeping. Secrets that have shaped their lives. Devastating secrets that eventually unravel and leave scars on all of them. Its also about love, a family who survives the secrets and who learn to either forgive or surrender to the aftermath. Great Read! ( )

Ghost of a Chance: You see a man / trying to think. / You want to say / to everything: / Keep off! Give him room! / But you only watch / terrified / the old consolations / will get him at last / like a fish / half-dead from flopping / and almost crawling / across the shingle, / almost breathing / the raw, agonizing / air / till a wave / pulls it back blind into the triumphant sea. -- Adrienne Rich
