I listened to this book during the pandemic quarantine. It was enjoyable to listen to during long walks in my neighborhood.
This book beautifully blends several themes: the meaning of motherhood, racism and microaggression, art and the creative process, families and the power of secrets, teen- age angst, non- conformity, and suburban living.
The author creates vivid and believable characters. By the way, I despise Elena Richardson, but in the end, I had compassion for her plight!
This book makes the reader think. During the courtroom scene, the characters talk about books and childrens' dolls as mirrors and as a parent and teacher, I could not agree more.
I am definitely putting other books by Celeste Ng on my reading list.

I liked the writng in this book more than I liked the content. this dystopian novel was very frightening and showed how easy it is for dictators to rule. it was upsetting to read this at this time in this state, country, and world. The first part was very interesting, but much of the second and third parts of the book were tedious. the ending came so quickly and unfortunately, was much too uncertain itself. it's fine that i read this book, but it is the least favorite of ng's books that i've read. i was personally pleased that librarians were portrayed as saviors, as so often that is true.… (mere)

*throaty closed mouth growl*
That’s it; I’m done with this genre of go-nowhere-reveal-nothing kind story that is many contemporary fiction novels.
What was the point of this book? To languish in the complexity of people and their relationships and the things forced upon them by others and society? Is that it? Pass.
Strong starting line that ultimately had no intention of delivering an incredible story after it.
The characters are aberrant and thinly developed.
The writing is the only redeeming part…

Some times life sucks, some times people suck, some times society sucks…and some times the book you choose to read sucks.

Everything I Never Told You is everything I never wanted to waste 10 hours of my life on….

A nice book, a well-rounded story, well written. I read this book at a leisurely pace and while for me, it was not a page-turner, I was interested in every page. I would recommend this book and will try Ms. Ng's other writings.
