Medea and Her Children
Medea and Her Children | Ludmila Ulitskaya
3 posts | 1 read | 1 to read
Medea Georgievna Sinoply Mendez is an iconic figure in her Crimean village, the last remaining pure-blooded Greek in a family that has lived on that coast for centuries. Childless Medea is the touchstone of a large family, which gathers each spring and summer at her home. There are her nieces (sexy Nike and shy Masha), her nephew Georgii (who shares Medeas devotion to the Crimea), and their friends. In this single summer, the languor of love will permeate the Crimean air, hearts will be broken, and old memories will float to consciousness, allowing us to experience not only the shifting currents of erotic attraction and competition, but also the dramatic saga of this family amid the forces of dislocation, war, and upheaval of twentieth-century Russian life. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Look at that family tree! That's what I've had to deal with in his almost 600 page (big print) book. I had to refer to it throughout the entire book, so perhaps I'm not made for books with more than 10 characters. The story was nice, but... a bit pointless perhaps? This could easily be a tv-series, because that's what it felt like I just read; a show that stopped at the end of season 2.
