Genre: Women/Sisters

5 Stars

Grand Read

What an incredible story in The Latecomer by Jean Hanff Korelitz. This is the first book of this author that I have read, and I really enjoyed the story. It's a family story unlike any kind that I have read. A wealthy family, and the story is told from the meeting of the parents, and it grows from there. The plot has layers and a lot of subplots. The family dynamic is interesting, and if feels like the family wants to escape. Escape each other. Triumphs and tragedies, and the family feels so distant even with each other. The family is coming apart at the seams, and then, another child enters the family. This author brings the story to life. The characters had a lot of depth, and were very realistic. It’s one of those embraceable stories. This story was very unpredictable, especially in the unconventional, dysfunctional family, and how their story ends. I hope to read more books by this author. The Latecomer is a definite recommendation by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews. I read this book to give my unbiased and honest review.
