my take: Really, the family in this book has the corner on the DYSFUNCTION market. It’s being made into a movie – rumor has it Jane Fonda will play the mother – and it may be a better movie than novel …
Before I began the book, I got word that one Book Chick was saying “don’t buy it” so I got it from the library, and I think that was a good call … not a keeper. I was off snuggling with my first grand baby when the Book Chicks met, so I didn’t get to hear the discussion. I hear tell one member LOVED it and thought it was very funny and everybody else kinda sided with me … extreme scenes that were mostly unbelievable.
I’m hoping the enthusiastic one will comment here to defend her pick!
