The Gathering - Joy's Thoughts

Anne Enright
Genre: Fiction
Published: 2007
Personal Rating: 1/5

Told from the middle child's perspective, the Hegarty family gather together for a loved one's funeral. Memories, future thoughts, today, dreams, truth, hallucinations - all jumbled up together - what a mess!

If it weren't for the fact that I received this book from the kind-hearted Gentle Reader of Shelf Life and that it is a Man Booker Challenge AND Notable Books Challenge choice, I would have abandoned it from the get-go.

Need another opinion? There are several opposing viewpoints on this blog. Check 'em out! :)
