What I am Reading….

Posted on: 19 January, 06

The Love Wife by Gish Jen.

Fairly interesting story, but found it hard to follow. The story was told in first person by each of the characters. That would have been fine, except the speaker changed too frequently. There could be several speaker changes in just a couple of pages. I found some of the secondary characters way more interesting than the main characters, particularly the oldest daughter. She was adopted after being abandoned at a church. She struggled with her unknown heritage and her apparent mixed racial make-up. I was more interested in her evolution than I was in the dissolution of her parent’s marriage.
