really liked it
Read from May 13 to 30, 2012

I read The Descendants AFTER I saw the movie, which is usually against my rules. But I saw the movie without realizing there was an actual book. My daughter read and recommended it, otherwise I probably wouldn't have bothered. The reason I read the book before seeing a movie is not to have the actors in my head when reading. This was a bit of a distraction when reading the book. The movie was very faithful to it, therefore there wasn't THAT distraction. Bottom line, I loved the book! Like the movie, it depicted a very real home---a little messy and worn---and very real people---a little messy and worn. Terrific story of extraordinary ordinary people.
