Marina Endicott's Good to a Fault is a lovely read. The book dances deftly and with ease between sad and happy, anger and calm, disappointment and contentment; a believable tale told with honesty and sincerity. All characters, down even to the baby, receive enough attention and treatment to give us a full portrait of each, allowing for the transmission of some profundity from more than one source, which too often seems to be only the main character.

I found myself interested in and relating to the character of Paul Tippet most easily, and, with a measure of self-awareness while reading, hoping to be more like him in some ways, less in others.

I really, really enjoyed reading this book.

Matt King She used to, or maybe still does, work at the University of Alberta. Teaching Creative Writing. That may be not true though. I didn't bother to check that.
