This book felt incomplete and unfinished on several levels. I don't mind the book being broken up into each of the siblings points of view but each of their parts left me feeling unsatisfied and slightly confused. Without spoling it, it is the story of four siblings and how their lives play out after they are raised by uninterested parents. While they are the definition of dysfunctional as they become adults and grow into their own stories they each find some sort of resolution with their parents and their childhoods. While that sounded good to me on the surface as I dug in I found myselftrying to piece together voids without much success. And in what seemed to me an effort to be profound and philosophical about their issues the author ended up leaving this reader confused and unfulfilled that I had indeed read a rich story.
