I loved the main character’s tenacity and willingness to take massive risks
I got through the book though never gripped by the story after the initial few chapters. It seemed like a long walk through the woods to get to the end and even there, nothing to be excited about. It did not hold my interest like A Visit from the Goon Squad, I hope Egan’s next book packs more punch into the story than this one.
From start to finish fabulous. Even if I did not get back to reading it for 2 or 3 days. I always remembered what had happened previously. Characters stayed with me.. so happy Anna saved her child. All babies are a gift from God. Joan francis

I enjoyed the book but it was not a “page turner”. I felt like the author either has a huge vocabulary or decided to pepper the book with obscure words every so often. Not my favorite.
Jennifer Egan never disappoints. Great characters embraced by a wonderful story.
A lot of characters .....sometimes the author switches right into another story line without a pause or even a page break.
Ran rather LONG in the middle

I’m not a history buff, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
