Review: Commonwealth

Commonwealth Commonwealth by Ann Patchett
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

It took me a while to get into this book and I am glad I continued to read. Commonwealth is a story of broken families, mixed siblings and the heartaches of losing people you love. Ann Patchett's writing is extraordinary and intelligent. The characters are complex and each unique in his or her own right. A common thread unifies them. Pain and sorrow gather around them, giving strength to some and breaking others. This is not a book of actions; it is a book of reactions. Maybe it is not for everyone, but if you like books that make you think, I encourage you to give it a try.
