Summary í The Adults ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Summary æ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ Alison Espach Alison Espach ↠ 0 Read & download In her ruefully funny and wickedly perceptive debut novel Alison Espach deftly dissects matters of the heart and captures the lives of children and adults as they come to terms with life death and love At the center of this affluent suburban universe is Emily Vidal a smart and snarky teenager who gets involved in a suspect relationship with on This book confused and upset me a lot At the beginning I was like This is the greatest most hilarious thing ever People should need to be granted a license before they re allowed to write any books and I should be the official in charge of deciding who can obtain such a license and I will not give one to anybody except this Alison Espach I was stunned and amazed and just thought it was the greatest contemporary American thing I could remember having read in yearsThen things started to happen in the book and I liked it a little bit less though was still on board and cheering But then it got to around the second half which I just fucking hated I mean I really loathed it A lot I couldn t believe how muchNot sure but part of this might have had to do with the problem of plot What is this obsession writers have with making things happen in their books I get how it sounds like a good idea in theory but this book was so mind blowingly awesome until it was ruined by all these dumb boring things happening Why did anything really have to happen If this novel had been content to stay how it was at the beginning a hilarious and brilliantly written fourteen year old basically just hanging around and not up to much it would ve continued being the greatest thing ever As it was though it wound up being an extremely tiresome book about very tiresome people undergoing dramatic yet thoroughly uninteresting life events I mean I felt emotionally exhausted just reading about people and events I cared so little about if that makes any sense which clearly it doesn tI hope the very talented Ms Espach keeps writing and I hope her next book doesn t have any plot and is just her great writing without any of the awful letdown midway through Moreover I wish this larger mania for things happening in fiction would blow over and we could enjoy a renaissance of spectacularly written books in which not much ever happens at all because I m starting to think that s the kind of thing I d most like to read
