Little Children


I finished this book yesterday on my train ride back from the depths of Michigan.

This is one of those quick and easy reads that I love so much and is still classified as "literary fiction" yet is a really light, easy read.

The novel is a story of a handful of 30-something parents in suburbia, and a satire of the lives they live. It is sometimes funny, sometimes sad, the boring and sad state of affairs these people find themselves in: dreadful marriages, affairs, pent up anger.

But, the book was really wonderful and I tore through it. Check it out!

Grade: A-

I have never heard of this book, but you are never wrong when it comes to book recommendations. Incidentally, I walked by a display at Borders last week that said: "Loved the Da Vinci Code? Read The Eight!"

I thought this post was going to be about actual little children and unnecessary they generally are... I'm disappointed.
