I come away from this book feeling disappointed. I thought it would be a longer-term narrative with clear fractures in a family along partisan lines, reflecting the current political divide in the US. Unfortunately it was primarily about wealthy men talking amongst themselves. What a missed opportunity for a great story!

A. N. Homes wrote one of the most disturbing novels, I think, of all time-- one that takes you into the mind of two pedophiles and shows you their world and strange, sick logic. It is not for the faint of heart, not for the weak of spirit, and not for those who want to see a pedophile condemned.

It isn't five stars sheerly for the subject matter, and that's the same reason I write this review -- to warn those who might read this, not knowing what they're going to get into. I don't really feel like glorifying a work wrapped around a pedophile's life or the empathy one can find with him.

Abandoned a third of the way through. It's not that it's not well written. But an account of a group of die-hard Republicans seeking to undo (this is set in 2008-9) the 'wrong' of a black man, a Democrat being President is just too depressing a read at the moment, with the current Republican party of 2023 apparently in thrall to Trump and at risk of his being re-elected. I've just looked again to see if I should try again. Nope. Can't do it.

Starts off strong but goes from one extreme of negativity to an overly sappy, heart-warming second half. I enjoyed how the author has fun with Jewish family craziness.
