"It's March 2020 and a calamity is unfolding. A group of friends and friends-of-friends gathers in a country house to wait out the pandemic. Over the next few months new bonds of friendship and love will take hold, while old betrayals will emerge among this unlikely cast of characters, each richly drawn and achingly human: a Russian-born novelist; his Russian-born psychiatrist wife; their precocious child obsessed with K-pop; a struggling Indian American writer; a wildly successful Korean American app developer; a global dandy with three passports; a young flame-thrower of an essayist, originally from the Carolinas; and a movie star, The Actor, whose arrival upsets the equilibrium of this chosen family"--… (mere)

I wanted to like this, as it's clever and sort of dazzling, in a writerly pyrotechnics kind of way, but I didn't care one whit about any of the characters. Alas. ( )

I started out enjoying the writing and the humor. I got tired of the characters and was bored with the second half of the book. ( )

It stands to reason that the pandemic will inspire a lot of fiction. I had very high hopes for this one, but couldn't quite get into it. The characters were almost universally off-putting (with the exception of Natash) and there is a section near the end where the author really lost me, to the point where I was mentally begging for it to stop. I appreciated the satire (and there has been so very much to satirize) and the bittersweet last scene, but overall, a disappointment. ( )

A lot of funny parts showing people as ridiculous but also as sympathetic characters. Captured some of the early pandemic silliness and real worry.I didn’t really “get” some dream sequences towards the end of the book, but I just read through them anyway. ( )
