#tbt to last weekend in the Hamptons with my #beachread (kind of?) ☀️

I'm not entirely sure how to review this book but I was never able to fully get into the writing style. Much more sinister than I expected... I was picturing the narrator as creepy Kevin Spacey a la American Beauty. If you enjoy summer family vacay drama involving a slew of shitty people, dig in!


TrishB I didn‘t like The Dinner so I don‘t think I‘ll bother with this one! 1y
MicheleinPhilly Creepy Kevin Spacey is repetitive and redundant. 1y
RadicalReader @emilyhaldi love the flamingo and the swan 1y

saresmoore @MicheleinPhilly I was just going to say that I simply cannot separate Kevin Spacey from creepy in my mind. 1y
MicheleinPhilly @saresmoore He has ALWAYS struck me as creepy and really full of himself. 1y

Cinfhen Love the floats!!! So Hamptons 💕 This book was super dark and the people super douchey but I was actually sucked into the story. I much preferred this book than 1y
BarbaraBB I admire Koch that he actually makes me despise his characters but that‘s the only real good part about this book to me. 1y
Simona I‘m absolutely with you @Cinfhen about these two books ... I actually think, that Summer House was very good 🤷‍♀️ 1y
Cinfhen Thanks @Simona YOU obviously have FABULOUS taste 💕😘 1y
Simona @Cinfhen I think so too 😇😘 1y
emilyhaldi @Cinfhen perhaps #darkanddouchey should be a hashtag 🤔 It certainly applies to a lot of books that I love but for some reason the writing structure and stop-start nature of the sentences were a struggle for me. However, reading while traveling (very sporatic!) could have had something to do with it 😎 @Simona @BarbaraBB 1y
Cinfhen Ha!!! I feel like that hashtag is strictly for Herman Koch 😜 1y
Reviewsbylola Yup, same! 1y
Reviewsbylola And I‘m on board with #darkanddouchey 1y
