Book Review: Red Hook Road

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book really makes me wish that Goodreads let you award half stars because I LOVED this book, I would have given it five stars right up until the end. I felt the end was a bit overly dramatic and rushed which is a shame because otherwise Waldman's writing is excellent. But don't let that stop you from reading this book. Waldman's style isn't for everyone but I think her descriptions and insight into the characters are stellar and a pleasure to read. Don't get me wrong, this book isn't a walk in the park, the opening scene describes a tragic accident but much like her previous book, Bad Mother, Waldman's brutal honesty makes you squirm in your seat a little.
