This was an unexpected fun read. I say unexpected because the title didn’t really snag me (and I still don’t really see the connection), but nonetheless, it was well worth my time. Such fun.

Nothing really earth-shattering in this novel about a Hollywood family whose flame has long since been extinguished, but the dialogue, the personal struggles that Ms. Tanen brought to life in such a way that I could actually ‘hear’ the people talking (or in this case going off on one another), was spot-on. I love a good family saga where miscommunication is at the root - it seems that is so often the case in life.

This is a feel-good, ends well story with a bit of a zing I didn’t expect at the end. Don’t misread that, I could tell it was all going to get sorted, it was the how that zinged me.

Well done, Ms. Tanen. I will look for more of your writing.

I've read a lot of dysfunctional family books and this one wasn't much different. So many things going on with the parents, exes, siblings, grandchildren, that it's hard to keep up and there are just scenes that are a little bit too far-fetched.

I almost put this book down close to where I usually do if I'm not enjoying it but picked it up again a few days later. Was it worth finishing? I think so. I ended up liking it more than I thought I would in the beginning.

While it's got redeemable qualities, it lacks depth and theme though I suspect the author felt otherwise. I grew weary of the redundant story line that's focused on a deeply dysfunctional family composed of flat, clueless characters. And while humorous in an ordinary way. I can't say it's funny. Not sure what the author had in mind, but for me, the word for this book is Dull!

Very entertaining, with likable characters. Mentioned in What Should I Read Next podcast July 2020.
