I liked - didn't love - this book. Hard to follow Middlesex, which I liked A LOT!
I kept waiting for a significant plot development, a surprising turn of events, a few ah-ha's, and they didn't happen.
I would describe The Marriage Plot as a good - not a great - read. I am glad I read it, and it was interesting in a depressing-sort-of-way to revisit the 80's (which I feel I missed to some extent as it was such a kid-focused decade), but I didn't feel Eugenides was much more interested in his characters than I was.
