Eligible

41hnYP26jjLI have a love-like relationship with Curtis Sittenfeld’s books. I enjoyed reading Prep, particularly because Sittenfeld had been a writer-in-residence at St. Albans. I also have fond memories of holding nursing Will in the crook of one arm while holding Prep in my other hand. I also enjoyed An American Wife. Sisterland, though, I thought was a disappointment. So, when Eligible came along with mediocre reviews, I was a bit wary. However, while I would say there were flaws for sure, and it could never hold up to Pride and Prejudices, it was an entertaining eye into the lives of the Bennet sisters, and an enjoyable-enough read. It’s perfect for this summer at the beach.
