Manhattan Beach: A Novel | Jennifer Egan
post image
Pickpick

What a difference 5 years and a deeper dive into her backlist makes! I didn‘t care for this in 2017. I found it slow and maybe a bit dull. However, coming back after reading her other books, I can tell it was a passion project for her, which I appreciate. The small details of WWII Brooklyn and the tenderness in her portrayal of Anna just touches me.

This is not the best place to start with Egan, but it is a fine place my dive to end.

Megabooks And yes those fall roses smell divine! 1mo
jlhammar So glad you enjoyed it more this time around! 1mo
BarbaraBB I admire you for giving it another chance. I don‘t have patience for that, always thinking #toomanybookstoolittletime 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1mo

Cinfhen Clever review!!! #Punny xx I didn‘t care for this book but I appreciate the way you chose to highlight the finer qualities - like @BarbaraBB it‘s hard for me to re-read books, especially ones I didn‘t really enjoy 1mo
squirrelbrain Like @BarbaraBB and @Cinfhen I rarely re-read books, especially those I haven‘t enjoyed, but your comments, Meg, are making me re-think this attitude. But…. Too many books, too little time! 1mo
Cathythoughts It is so interesting the difference time makes ! How we change. 1mo
Megabooks @Cathythoughts that is so true. It feels like each year I have a different focus and things I enjoy. 1mo
Megabooks @squirrelbrain @Cinfhen @BarbaraBB kind of like I said to Cathy, I feel like my reading tastes change a lot year-to-year and I do find myself rereading quite a bit sometimes. I originally wasn‘t going to reread this, but reading some of Egan‘s thoughts on this book made me change my mind. Sometimes I do find a reread worthwhile, even or sometimes especially when I didn‘t like it and I like some of the author‘s other books. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1mo
BarbaraBB @Megabooks You‘re a real scholar! 1mo

Canine reaction to the human who spends more time adding to #MountTBR than scaling it.

I have way too many borrowed books right now. Libraries, Libby, Hoopla, ebooks, audiobooks, book books! So, I forced myself to assess the situation, with the hope that I will not lose any of them to missing the deadline! This one is due back first, and it has a waitlist. So, giving it some priority. 🤞🏻#toomanybookstoolittletime

CollapsingLibrary I flew through this book! 1y
DivineDiana @PurrfectFeministPerspective Now that I am prioritizing it, so am I! 1y
BookBosomed1 Loved this book. Took me a couple of chapters to really get into it. I also prioritized it bc it was due back at the library. :) 1y
DivineDiana @BookBosomed1 Sometimes, that‘s all it takes! I am loving it too. ❤️ 1y
damselsgotballs This is the most enchantingly beautiful and amazing book I've ever read. I hope you enjoy it🍻📚 1y

Katies_always_booked Addie makes a bargain to live forever but is cursed to never be remembered. This is her story of her life over 300 years. 5 ⭐️ for me! 2y

Gonna have to bail on this one. I like Ruth Ware - I really enjoyed The Death of Mrs. Westaway & One By One - but this one is getting a bit creepy/disturbing for me, especially involving the children. Not in the right headspace right now. #toomanybookstoolittletime
