The Marriage Plot - Jeffrey Eugenides

The Marriage Plot - Jeffrey Eugenides

Four stars!

 

 

A very interesting book set in the 80's concerning a girl, Madeleine, her boyfriend, Leonard, and her eternal friend Mitchell, who's also in love with her. While the story seems quite simple and straight forward, it slowly starts getting more complicated by their different personalities, illnesses and interests, which in turn make the book have to deal with some serious issues in a very real way.

 

I strongly recommend reading the last half of this book alone because this is one of those books that have you yelling things at the pages while you're reading lol The author makes you feel very strong (positive and negative) feelings about each of the characters, so for me it was impossible not to express those emotions in a very vocal way. Maybe that was just me, but hey, consider yourself warned :) 

 

Four stars and I'll continue reading this author in the future!
