The Misfortunes of Family review ↠ 5 ✓ ❮PDF / Epub❯ ☉ The Misfortunes of Family ✩ Author Meg Little Reilly – The Nest meets The Vacationers in this novel of family dysfunction in which for the Brights normal has become whatever their crazy family says it isWhen the four adult sons of reD for their mandatory summer vacation the matriarch Patty decides to hire a documentary filmmaker to memorialize their time together The Brights a family of outsized pride are beautiful competitive athletic and terrible They The Misfortunes Kindle have everything they need except the ability. It seems as though I’m in the minority on this one but I just could not get into this bookI found the beginning to be dry and writing style did nothing to endear me to the characters I didn’t like any of them to be honest except for maybe Phillip and even then my appeal to him was mild curiosity As I continued through the book I found that I was not invested in their story and didn’t care what happened to themThe book took a lot of turns that we’re not obvious in the synopsis but I’m unsure if that was a help or a hindrance to the main plot of the story that is family I think a lot of that point got lost in the ‘noise’ of everything else that happened And with so much happening the reader gets shifted from here to there to here to there in such a short timeframe only 3 weeks that it was difficult to really absorb the effect of each event before we’d moved on to the next one All in all I think the bones of the story a family with secrets and the search for identity outside of their surnames was what initially gravitated me to this book but I guess it just wasn’t for me Many thanks to Meg Little Reilly Harleuin MIRA and NetGalley for an arc of this book in exchange for an honest review

The Nest meets The Vacationers in this novel of family dysfunction in which for the Brights normal has become whatever their crazy family says it isWhen the four adult sons of recently retired Senator John Bright and their significant others join their parents at the family's Berkshire compoun. This is a book about the power of family and the power of home The author successfully draws you into this proud family and community but once there I realized that it wasn’t a place I wanted to stay The writing is very well done but almost every emotion seemed subdued or dull as if the characters were forbidden to feel Family love devotion and even anger through most of the book was understated I didn’t find a single character that I cared about not even the documentary maker who played a prominent part in this story I find this novel a bit difficult to rate as I found it uneven The first half was often boring yet I enjoyed the cadence of this book and the methodology of presenting the story from the various character perspectives While not a bad book I kept turning pages while expecting an explosive climax and when it finally came I was kind of disappointed Thank you NetGalley Meg Little Reilly and HARLEUIN MIRA for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own#TheMisfortunesOfFamily #NetGalley

The Bright family is the personification of the political dynasties we know During a trip to the home of the Bright patriarchs all four of their sons become involved in the unraveling of years of parental machinations and lies This was really a great read with interesting characters I was totally engaged and willing to accept some of the clearly absurd situations that are built into the story Rather than uestion them I let myself enjoy this good read with incredibly likable characters Thanks Netgalley
