Read full description of the books:
I read this book very carefully. It's a great fit for the cerebral part of my brain...
having anything to do with complex relationships and family dymamics.
I literally can pick this book apart - piece by piece to analyze.....a perfect group-discussion-choice.
Several Goodreads members, and I, picked this book for a group discussion.
For those interested to join in - (if you've read the book) -
Here is how to find the discussion group:
...go to groups
...join the 'public' group "The Reading For Pleasure Book Club" ---( do not worry about
obligations -- many members have joined just to link into the designed book discussion for 'this book')
... Scroll down through threads until you find "The Amateur Marriage"
...clink 'link'..... ( you will find other members - many you know - discussion corner)
My Quick Review...( saving more to say for the discussion group)
...This book can be read - re-read & picked apart - ( Basic generalizations to deeper introspections) ---not everyone would have the patience for it. I did...but towards the end, I began to feel a little weary. ...( only the last 10-15 pages did I finally feel...
I exhausted my energy, and needed a breather).
....BOTH Michael and Pauline, were in a quandary doubting each other's intelligence decisions- financial choices - parenting-social appropriateness-anniversary celebrations- dealings with grief -loss-sex-and love.
....Pauline was often erratic, having explosive outbursts, and volatile. At the same time, she took action. Looking 'put-together' and beautiful, were of some importance to her, pride in her cooking, and home-decorating skills.
She could also squash Michael being too righteous.
....Michael could be a cold-hearted iceberg...callous- insensitive-borderline cruel-and often just wimpy. He also could squash Pauline being too righteous.
....The children bruised - each in different ways - and as they grow...we see some suffering in their relationships.
....I might conclude that each of us have our bruises. We are all amateurs in love -
living- and connecting together.
