    Kindle weplayit.co ç The Interestings PDF/EPUB ê interestings mobile, The Interestings PDFThis book was not Interesting capital I or otherwise in any way Wolitzer wrote in such an ironic lofty fashion that I was completely distanced from the characters Very little actually happens in this novel unless you count life and that happens to all of us and does not a novel make Six teens meet at summer camp and four of them remain friends for decades The friends deal wit

    Kindle weplayit.co ç The Interestings PDF/EPUB ê interestings mobile, The Interestings PDFThe Interestings are about as interesting as my butt dimple The most exciting moment came when I rushed to my dictionary to check on the correct plural form for clitoris I thought it might be 'clitori' Or even 'clitorae' But clitorises is the accepted form I much prefer the correct Greek plural provided by my dictionary 'clitorides' It's a word that deserves capitalization Clitorides Greek goddess of female pleasure

Is what I do enough to sustain me intellectually and emotionally for the next forty four years? Do I measure up to my peers? Am I happy? Am I interesting? This uest for fulfillment and self actualization is the premise of Meg Wolitzer’s sprawling cracking good novel The InterestingsIn the summer of

    Kindle weplayit.co ç The Interestings PDF/EPUB ê interestings mobile, The Interestings PDFThere's a point in which one of the characters a highly successful animator Ethan wonders which Disney character would the protagonist Jules be and concludes that Disney doesn't make princesses like her Wonderingly I would have loved to point him to the nearest green with envy evil stepmotherstepsister They're dime a dozen in Disney And that's exactly what Jules is jealous petty and self absorbed even after 50 years of her life The novel barely acknowledges this Oh there are a couple of fights with her husband but everything is patched up and hunky dory because of fortuitous circumstances She never has to evaluate herself never has to face her faults not even the conseuences of anything The novel is a 460 page bloated paean to Jules' unhealthy jealousy of her successful friends and the unconditional acceptance and love that her friends have for her despite this The animator still carries a torch for her as she d

    Kindle weplayit.co ç The Interestings PDF/EPUB ê interestings mobile, The Interestings PDFMeg Wolitzer’s captivating new novel set in the bustle and exuberance of New York is a panoramic and epic drama but a sleeper kind of epic It gripped me by degrees opening rather conventionally and then gradually seducing me with a fertile character development and realistic original story She penetrates the messiness of human lives with a spotless narrative that feels both familiar and singular If you are drawn to human drama you’ll soon be thoroughly hooked This is surely the crown of Wolitzer’s writing careerSix teenagers meet at a co ed arts camp in the Berkshires in 1974 and remain in touch through the years up to the present A few become close intimates and all of them maintain a lifelong bond They each have a creative talent that they endeavor to nurture dance animation architecture theater music Artcreativity is the altar at which most of them

    Kindle weplayit.co ç The Interestings PDF/EPUB ê interestings mobile, The Interestings PDFSo Fucking Great I'm going to gush It's going to come out all wrong But that's ok There was so much soul and perceptiveness in this genius novel that I don't really know what to say other than go read it now What happens to talent over time? What happens to teenage friendships over time? What happens to passion and ideals and dreams over time? This novel will fill your heart to the brim and break it like a twig all at the same timeI will echo another Goodreads friend and say that it is simply perfect I will echo another Goodreads friend who said that it felt like a mix between Freedom and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay but even better It isI think the New York Times was wrong this is probably the best book that I will read all year

    Kindle weplayit.co ç The Interestings PDF/EPUB ê interestings mobile, The Interestings PDFUgh I agree so much with Dani's reviewI heard an interview with Wolitzer on NPR and was intrigued and really looked forward to reading this book I wanted to like it which is why I got nearly halfway through waiting hoping something was going to happen before I skipped about a hundred pages to about 5 or 6 chapters from the end Wolitzer is so repetitive that it wasn't at all hard to figure out what I'd missedThis book really has no plot I actually am a fan of character driven novels and I'm even okay with books in which not a lot happens but then the characters are likeable or uirky or actually interesting and none of these were At the end of the book I realized that this was somewhat of a point that Wolitzer was trying to make that view spoilerthe specialness the interestingness of the characters was o

    Kindle weplayit.co ç The Interestings PDF/EPUB ê interestings mobile, The Interestings PDFFor the first two thirds of this book I often thought Barf What's so interesting about these self proclaimed 'interestings'? This wasn't helped by the audiobook reader doing a good job whenever there was dialog but rushing dully through the proseYeah The fundamentally good writing kept me going and I was rewarded Not one to give away spoilers I'll only say that when the story got to a conversation covering my exact uestion the author answered it marvelously The rest of the book made the whole of it worthwhile
