What I Loved

What I Loved - Siri Hustvedt Beautifully written and a realistic insight into the difficulties of parenthood and relationships.

A story with interesting and intelligent character development. I enjoyed watching the characters grow and how the author developed and shaped the characters over a number of years.
This really is a study of relationships and how they develop between husbands and wives, family and friends over the course of a number of years and how love, and loss can change the course of friendships.

I enjoyed the read as it is very well written, the plot is dark in places and there twist and turns in the second half of the novel to keep the reader interested.. I didn't however connect with the emotion of the book or feel any real satisfaction with the conclusion of the story.

A 3 *** read for me. I liked it but didn't love it.
