Fun thriller!! I want to read her backlist now too
I have read and enjoyed Klosterman in the past, so when I saw he was writing a book about the 90s I was thrilled. I don‘t know if it is the current climate or just me changing, but this book feels like the author is creating a series of elongated tweets, inserting as many SAT words as possible making fun of the public figures responsible for our entertainment. What I was hoping would be a fun journey back was like reading a rant on social media.
Thanks to Netgalley for the copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Wow! This book has so many qualities that I love in a novel: long sweeping timeline, beloved supporting characters, interesting setting and history embedded in the story. I did find Violeta to be insufferable at times, particularly in her motherhood choices, which made me frustrated as a reader, but ultimately made the story seem realistic and more interesting.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thank you to Netgalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I really enjoyed all of the art in this book! It was fun to learn about Angelica, a model for many sculptures around NYC based upon an real person. It was also interesting to learn about the Frick family and their legacy in the art world, and wild dysfunction. I‘ll say that the characters Veronica and Joshua in the 60s we‘re sort of underdeveloped for me.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ what an ending to an amazing saga!!! I‘m so sad it‘s over
Love this saga so much! Was not as good as the first two, but I can tell is gearing up for the final installment!
I loved this book. This multigenerational, decades spanning book is so artfully crafted with its irrevocable choices that affect characters differently and permanently. Systemic racism is another main character in this book, sending characters on widely divulging paths. So many different layers and plots and complicated emotions in this family‘s story. An incredible novel. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
