Love Invents Us is beautifully written and I think that Bloom's handling of character is deft. I like the realism of both plot and character; the novel stops just short of seeming to revel in ugliness and disappointment just to make a point about how real lives are lived. But as a novel, it doesn't seem to me to do anything particularly surprising or formally inventive. I found myself mostly reading to find out what happened next, which is fine, but I don't read just for plot much anymore.
