An American Marriage


I finished this book several days ago and for reasons I can’t quite figure out, I’ve had the hardest time sitting down to write a review that is worthy of how truly great this novel is.

I want to scream out loud: “GO GET THIS BOOK AND READ IT!” “THIS BOOK IS SO GREAT!”

And it is both of those things – but it’s also so much more.

This book forces you to analyze what marriage, commitment, loyalty, and love are. It will break your heart, but then it will piece it back together with hope.

You will fall in love with ALL the characters – their flaws and imperfections, strengths and virtues.

You will be angry at the reality of the situation and you will wonder when we – humanity – will ever get this right.

The best kind of books are ones that make you feel #allthefeels. This one does just that in the most fantastic way!

I’m going out on a limb to say that this is my favorite read of 2018 so far. What book would you add to the #Bestof2018 list?
