The Marriage Plot: A Novel | Jeffrey Eugenides
post image
Mehso-so

The first time I‘ve read Eugenides and perhaps not representative. The initial premise, a college love triangle, felt expected and predictable. The depth of literary, historical and philosophical context kept me interested but these ideas felt too separate from the plot and a missed opportunity. The exploration of Leonard‘s world was a particular highlight. Reinterpreting the marriage plot is an intriguing basis but it wasn‘t entirely successful.
