really liked it
Read from June 17 to August 24, 2015

Once again Eugenides has enchanted me with his writing. His ability to richly develop multiple characters and find points of alignment in their lives is always amazing. I also admittedly love this almost Jane Austen tale of Madeline and her two suitors but set in a time when love, sex, and marriage were not always defined in the most romantic terms. I also found the writing of Leonard's character wonderfully complex and felt an accurate depiction of the life-long struggle that is mental illness, and how hard it is for the people in your life to comprehend the disease.
