The opening line sets the pace of this family drama. “All three of the Drumm brothers were at the funeral. But one of them was in the coffin.” This is the story of the Drumm family which is a dysfunctional family and told from the perspective of each of the three bothers during various times of their lives and how certain events affected them. Bouncing back and forth through time and brother, it was easy to follow. I did want to know which brother was in that coffin and we learn by the end of the story, but this is a family dram and not a mystery thriller. I still enjoyed it though. ( )

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Unsettling, confronting, cyclic.

Little Cruelties by Liz Nugent paints a portrait of a dysfunctional family (with a capital D). The Drumm brothers of Dublin, Will, Brian and Luke have spent their childhood seeking love and approval from their mother, a selfish performer with a giant ego. This competition has driven a wedge between the brothers and they turn against each other, go out of their way to make the others miserable. This does not change when they become adults. The rivalry simply becomes more cruel. And this ends with two brothers attending the third brother’s funeral. Which one died and what caused his death? The narration is by each of the brothers, at different ages. This helps the reader get to know each one individually. This is dark family drama at its best: reading Little Cruelties is so fascinating that it is difficult to look away. Highly recommended to readers who enjoy family fiction with a helping of suspense. Thank you to Simon & Schuster, NetGalley and the author for the e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. ( )

A family’s different perspectives on growing up with a narcissistic mother, and the little cruelties they all dealt to one another. The way each character and their relationships with one another are shaped throughout their lives is the central theme, and perhaps a warning to those dealing in cruelties themselves.
Poignantly written, the characters are flawed and real, the overall vibe of the family was dictated long ago and they never really broke free, even in their own lives, careers and relationships. Well done, a bit sad, but thought provoking.
