This is Where I Leave You

This weekend I read This is Where I Leave You, by Jonathan Tropper.  While the movie trailer looks funny, and someone told me the book was hysterical, I found most of it heartbreaking.  And I guess that is what made it such a good book.  It was at once heartbreaking and funny, like life sometimes is.  But after reading such a poignant tale, I'm not sure that I'm ready to see the  movie version.  I'm not sure that I'm ready to magnify all the loneliness that exists around us, and I'm definitely looking for suggestions for a lighthearted book as my next read.

Happy reading,
Christine
