I decided to go ahead and post about this book, because I truly want to move on from it.
I didn't get it. I didn't get the title of the book after having read all 325 pages. Here is the quick detail from goodreads about the book
From National Book Award finalist Jean Thompson comes a mesmerizing, decades-spanning saga of one ordinary American family—proud, flawed, hopeful— whose story simultaneously captures the turbulent history of the country at large.
I just really didn't get this book. I struggled throughout the book to become connected to any of the multiple characters in the book. I struggled to figure out what the point was and I struggled to figure out what I was missing. This author and the book had many rave reviews and I just couldn't figure out why. Maybe I'm not intellectual enough. Maybe I totally missed the boat on this one, but all I can say is I'm happy to be moving onto my "Marathon of Reading"- starting with Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck.
