I‘m going with a pick, although that feels generous. I read it quickly, and I did enjoy it...but I don‘t have the 5 star love for this book that everyone else seems to have. I enjoy unlikeable characters, so Maurice wasn‘t the issue for me. It was just a bit underwhelming following The Heart‘s Invisible Furies.

Rush: A Novel | Lisa Patton
post image
Mehso-so

Told from three perspectives, this novel explores themes of racism, tradition, and family relationships. The writing is solid and each voice is unique. It has a lot of heart and would make for good discussion; however, it‘s just a bit too syrupy sweet/neat and tidy for my taste. It‘s not a pick for me personally, but it‘s a good book that I think many will enjoy.

Purrfectpages Yes! The syrupy way things tied so neatly together irked me too. 14mo

While this wasn‘t nearly as compelling as Krakauer‘s Into Thin Air, I still enjoyed learning about the 1996 Everest tragedy from Anatoli Boukreev‘s perspective.

No_One I've read INTO THIN AIR 5-6 times. I should read this one too! I think it was written in part to dispute some of what Krakauer wrote 🤔 1y
Thousand-Lives @No_One Yes it was, and it‘s very clear in this book that that‘s his purpose. I found the differing perspectives interesting but am not compelled to take sides since I‘m no expert on mountain climbing 😊 Definitely give it a try! 1y

“These are all small pieces, like shards of colored glass in a kaleidoscope; I spin and combine them to make a glowing, shifting picture. But they are finite in number. I cannot know my mother as others know their parents - I will never have an adult conversation with her.”

Perry‘s memoir about her mother‘s murder is heartbreaking and ugly, but it‘s also a lovely tribute to her mother‘s life and their relationship. An easy 5 stars.
