A weekend in the lives of Otto Bentwood, a successful lawyer and his sophisticated wife Sophie. They own both a brownstone in Brooklyn and a small country home on Long Island. They are struggling with direction in their lives. Although it was written in #1970, it feels very current. The writing is exquisite. At times,I wanted to jot down certain sentences whose beauty left me in awe. A slim book. Tense. Serious. Atmospheric. #192025

I‘ve heard so many good things about this book. I‘m reading it now as part of a shared read on the #TIOLI challenges for #LibraryThing.

SqueakyChu I know this book is about time travel, but my mind is already traveling back to #1970, this book‘s publication date, in which a character has an #MG. Those were the days! ❤️ (edited) 5mo
SqueakyChu I can already tell I‘m going to love this book. I‘m on page 19. (edited) 5mo

This is a sweet, sad, romantic story. Not a lot to it, but well written with charming characters and the author does a great job with the narration. I was shocked to discover we used the same Whitman poem in our wedding vows without ever having read/seen it. #audiobook #BirthdayChallenge #1970

Suelizbeth You have to admit that it‘s pretty sappy, though. 5y
KVanRead @Suelizbeth Oh Yes, definitely. Parts were cringey but it still made me choke up. But I am kind of a sap.😂 5y

Next up on #audiobook in my #BirthdayChallenge: #1970. I don‘t agree with the famous quote pictured here, but it is one of those incredibly famous books I‘ve always meant to get to.

Alfoster Yes, so sappy but a tearjerker for sure when it came out!😢 Agree that it's a stupid line; you should always be willing to say you're sorry! 5y
KVanRead @Alfoster Yup, and pretty indispensable in a marriage, IMO 😂 5y
