Soon this brainy and guiltily happy couple will find children have become a part of their lives, first their own baby daughter and then an unloved, unlovable boy named Gordy Himmelman. It is Gordy who will throw Saul and Patsy’s lives into disarray with an inscrutable act of violence.
There were parts of this book that were good, where other parts were just ‘meh!’. Saul’s character was a little hard to believe, and I didn’t really like him. I thought the plot fell apart a bit at the end. I would try another book by Charles Baxter.
I waffled between 2 and 3 stars.
3 stars (Rated PG-13 for language and sex)
