From the Library: The Big Girls
This is a book of big characters. Well-written to keep you involved in the on-going story while alternately caring of and disgusted by the people who inhabit this book, I am reading another of Susanna Moore's books by audiobook in the car. What a writer!
I found "The Big Girls" to be a big slice of life, not necessary a life that I would want to inhabit, but life, nonetheless. The characters do the stupid things that real people do. Other characters react in the unpredictable way that people do. There is no happy ending, maybe not even an ending, just as life, there is on-going living, where compromise and make do are the trail that characters follow.
I recommend this book, because it allows a giant keyhole to observe a corner of the world that is so different from any other.
