    One thought on “The Slow Way Back: A Novel

    1. Margaret Klein on said:

      A charming first novel about three generations of women the southern United States Those generations range from first generation American still writing letters in broken English to fully assimilated, integrated sisters The book deals with tensions between the family generations, secrets, health issues and many family secrets You will have to read the book to see how it resolves, or does it It seems to me that there are many books in this genre This one was not my favorite because I found myself [...]

    2. Lydia on said:

      I liked the local setting, and I liked the idea of the novel, but it seemed most of the writing had nothing to do with the actual plot The interactions between the characters seemed superfluous and trite, conversations about Coke among other things, that made it seem like the author was not comfortable with writing dialogue The letters as well were not as enthralling as they could have been, and considering that the letters were the focus of the story, I had hoped they would contain Now I m not [...]

    3. MARGO on said:

      the excerpt for this novel says it is an expertly crafted first novel well I beg to differ This book is suppose to uncover a family secret which I am afraid is fairly obvious from the very first chapters and is no secret to anyone with an ounce of intellect The characters are boring and bland and there is no plot but the chapters just drone on and on telling us what mundane tasks occupy the main character s time I kept reading in hope that it would improve and saddly it did not What a horrible w [...]

      I picked this book up for 2 at the UNT bookstore apparently it didn t sell well there But I really liked the story of a Southern Jewish family, which to me was an oxymoron Little did I know It talks about history, family, relationships between sisters, mothers, daughters, and forgiveness Secrets revealed through Yiddish letters that must be translated Very interesting plot device I liked the prose quiet and poetic.

    5. Erica on said:

      For a book that I just grabbed off the shelf from the library while the kids were restless, I was satisfied by this book Although the plot was pretty easy to figure out earlier in the book, I enjoyed reading about the relationships of three sets of sisters within three generations in a Southern Jewish family.

    6. Kajsa on said:

      The writing style was weird almost abrupt in places, and the author had a tendency to jump forward in time without giving much clue as to where on the timeline of the story they were I enjoyed the plot though, I think the characters were well developed and the author delved into family issues with delicacy and good humor I liked the story, just not so much the writing style.

    7. Lori on said:

      Well written, but very slow to read and repetitive Didn t lead to any major revelation that a reader couldn t figure out half way through.

    8. cati on said:

      Thanks again Savers I had high hopes for this The best writing in the book was the last 5 pages.

      I enjoyed this book, I do admit the ending was very clear from the start of the book
