Thank you Harper Collins for sending me a review copy of this book, which tells the story of of four brothers and sisters (1 brother and three sisters) and their single mother throughout their lifetimes. The comparison drawn by the publisher between The Interestings and The Last Romantics is somewhat apt. I thought that the former was a much fuller look at the characters which made it more literary, while The Last Romantics tries to straddle the use of plot and character development to move the action along. It feels like there may have been more to the story that didn't make it to the final product but overall it's an entertaining read. ( )

The Last Romantics: Confession while the world collapses

Tara Conklin’s novel, book-ended by inferred scenes of the end of the world surprised me by being both vivid and intense. The Last Romantics was paced just right- I did not burn through the pages, while keeping a solid cadence.

In 2079, poet Fiona Skinner stands before a crowd of fans and critics. She is 102 years old, answering questions about her life long work as an author. From the crowd comes a young woman, asking after the origin of her namesake (Luna) from Fiona’s most famous work ‘The Love Poem’.

Fiona, amidst power outages and emergency sirens, narrates the history of the Skinners from the death of their father to a wedding ring with no bride.

Well crafted novel. ( )

This slow-moving, character-driven novel had some good elements to it, but it missed the mark for me. Some of the characters are flawed in peculiar ways, with questionable morals, and I just couldn’t warm up to them. The story begins with the death of the father, and death and how people cope with grief will figure in much of the story. Depression, anger, unhappiness, drug abuse, and deceit are all present in the tale, but are somewhat balanced by some good memories of happy times along the way. Readers learn about the characters through some lengthy flashbacks, and the conclusion of the story will wrap up most of the story threads. The main characters were well developed, and the writing was good for a plot that was more about about characters’ reactions than an intricate storyline. ( )

The complicated sibling relationships made this one memorable. Covers depression, multi-generations, and drug addiction. ( )

First 40% was good. Last 60% of this family saga dragged.

The best character in the book was Joe and, unfortunately, we didn't really get to know him that well since the book was written in 1st person and we only got to hear what one of his three sisters, Fiona, wanted to tell us. ( )
