All Adults Here

All Adults Here by Emma Straub has been on many summer reading lists this year (including my own planned summer want-to-read list). It’s the story of a family of three siblings and their fraught relationships. The beginning bodes well – a jarring incident where a woman in the town is struck and killed by the school bus – to get you into the story, but overall, the book was cold and I didn’t like any of the characters. Perhaps that was part of the point, but I didn’t find it an enjoyable read.

  1. Sorry this one wasn’t for you. There’s been a lot of buzz about this book, so I appreciate seeing your thoughts. I read Modern Lovers a few years ago and had some similar thoughts – not a bad book, but I’m not reaching quickly for another Straub when there are so many other books I want to read!
