I enjoyed this book, however it was not a book that caught my attention in the beginning. The underlining message of the novel was not an easily revealed message. The novel made you think, which in the end was quite thought provoking. I enjoyed that in the end.

A slow but amusing telling of Susanna Kaysen's privileged childhood. Have not read any of her other books so cannot compare

An exploration of childhood experience as the narrator remembers growing up and moving from place to place with her academic parents. Well written and enjoyable, this is a good vacation read for literary fiction fans looking for something a little lighter -- it's not A.S. Byatt, but it's along those lines.
