I have been on a reading kick lately and knocked this book out in only a few short days. It was less the plot that I liked but more the style of writing and reading the narrator's funny if not cynical view on...everything. it cracked me up. This book revolves around a 7 day Shiva - requested from our narrators recently passed father. His family is completely disfunctional, dont get along and each of them have demons to face. Our lead character recently walked in on his wife in bed with another man and finds out she is pregnant. The book isonly set in these 7 days where he is forced to stay in a house eith his family and ends up doing some reconcilling with old disagreements. Okay, this synopsis is terrible but the book was really good. What are you reading these days?

I watched the movie and it was hilarious. I bet the book is much better though.

@maezee Jason Bateman and Jane Fonda star in this movie. It is really funny.

I thought it was a good book review, especially since so much is going on in the story line. I had to look up the meaning of a 7 day Shiva, and learned something new today.

I'm currently reading The Streets by Anthony Quinn, a historical fiction. I should have finished it by now but oh well.
