The book made me yearn for those years in my early life when I could afford to be a little reckless.
Why I love it
Several months ago, I attended a luncheon in honor of Lauren Groff where she read from Fates and Furies with fiery enthusiasm, eyes blazing. You could tell that this new work of hers was a labor of love. It was magical.
Early readers are describing this novel as being about the long course of a marriage, and it is that, but what really resonated with me is its depiction of adolescence, of passio...
"I LOVED this. I loved how it was broken into the two characters's perspectives. Two sides to every story. And beautifully written."
"Great book... very deep interesting characters and loved the way the book was told from different perspective.. very psychological and kept you totally engaged! "
"Crazy! A little hard to follow. What does it all mean?!? ???? Ashamed to say i could kinda relate to the wife! "
"As someone contemplating marriage, this novel of a marriage told from two perspectives is though provoking and lyrical read. It will remind you of how little you can know someone you love. "
"Loved this book and the author's prose. "
"A beautiful story that shifts perspectives and defies your expectations. "

"The beginning of the book was quite slow, and I wasn't sure I'd keep reading but I am so glad I did. The slow start builds to such a great story. Great writing. Great characters. Great surprise twist!"
"Not what I expected in a great way. Shocking turns and relationships that are so passionately written that you feel as if you're a part of them."
