"Relationships are awful. They'll kill you, right up to the point where they start saving your life. Paul and Alice's half-sister Eloise is getting married! In London! There will be fancy hotels, dinners at "it" restaurants and a reception at a country estate complete with tea lights and embroidered cloth napkins. They couldn't hate it more. The People We Hate at the Wedding is the story of a less than perfect family. Donna, the clan's mother, is now a widow living in the Chicago suburbs with a penchant for the occasional joint and more than one glass of wine with her best friend while watching House Hunters International. Alice is in her thirties, single, smart, beautiful, stuck in a dead-end job where she is mired in a rather predictable, though enjoyable, affair with her married boss. Her brother Paul lives in Philadelphia with his older, handsomer, tenured track professor boyfriend who's recently been saying things like "monogamy is an oppressive heteronormative construct," while eyeing undergrads. And then there's Eloise. Perfect, gorgeous, cultured Eloise. The product of Donna's first marriage to a dashing Frenchman, Eloise has spent her school years at the best private boarding schools, her winter holidays in St. John and a post-college life cushioned by a fat, endless trust fund. To top it off, she's infuriatingly kind and decent. As this estranged clan gathers together, and Eloise's walk down the aisle approaches, Grant Ginder brings to vivid, hilarious life the power of family, and the complicated ways we hate the ones we love the most in the most bitingly funny, slyly witty and surprisingly tender novel you'll read this year"--… (lisätietoja)

Not the ending you expect

Interesting story and family dynamic. Ends abruptly and not as anticipated. Good character development and realism. Easy read for summer. ( )

I usually enjoy reading about dysfunctional families (especially ones that are different from my particular style of dysfunction) but this book wasn't nearly as funny as I thought it would be. ( )

This is a terrible book. Don't read it. DNF at 38 percent. Back to the library you go. I swear you can have books with terrible characters doing awful things. But you can't have terrible characters, writing, and a ridiculous plot. At this point the half sister could be eating kids on the side, and she wouldn't suck as much as the mother (Donna), son (Paul) and (Alice) daughter in this book. ( )

I struggled through this book. No one in this family is likable. Everyone has issues, they are all nursing a hurt or a wrong they felt was done to them. All of their relationships stink. Totally painful.
This book was recommended on a few lists, and by a librarian, but I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

I was *really* worried about reading this—people seem to love it or hate it. I didn't feel that strongly about it one way or another. I definitely could have done without Mark; probably could have done without Ollie. All in all, not particularly enjoyable, deep, enlightening, touching, or anything else one might expect from a dysfunctional family at a major life event. It makes me want to watch Table 19 again, though. ( )
