I think this book got so many good reviews because readers were deeply lonely during the pandemic, and found the endless details about the lives of these characters appealing. I enjoy a quirky novel, but didn't find this one appealing. The long lists (the names of Duncan's exes, Gary's dislikes, students' interpersonal issues) were distracting and not charming at all. The last chapter was good, but not good enough to be worth the time involved getting through the earlier chapters.

If you need to have a defined plot and a satisfying ending to enjoy a work of fiction, this is not the novel for you. But Heiny managed to capture and sustain my attention by imbuing her casual study of characters with cleverly structured humor, which is evenly employed from start to finish. Just like the main character, Graham, I was equally exasperated with and captivated by his loquacious wife, Audra. Their hectic, loud and quirky life with a 10-year-old son and a host of friends, houseguests, neighbors, casual acquaintances and crises never got boring and, in my opinion, the ending was just as it should be.… (lisätietoja)

One of those books, that's more or less about fairly normal life but in a good way. The cast of characters are great and Jane's little everyday insights rang very true to me.

!!!!! this story !!!!! ugh i loooooved this. i don't know if i missed the connection somwhere, but why is this book titled early morning riser? anyways, i looooved this if that wasn't clear. really a simple story, it's not twisty not flashy, but the characters are quirky and there's a little bit of drama and conflict, but really the story is about everybody's day to day life and there's gentle humor sprinkled throughout and it's about how even bad days have moments to be treasured. reading this was such a bliss. i completely understand why people don't love this as nothing big happens, but books don't always need to be dramatic! i'm all about the simplicity of this book. and the uplifting story full of love, hope and happiness… (lisätietoja)
