To bardzo fajnie łączy całość i oczywiście trochę popycha do małej refleksji na temat tego, ile naszych własnych wydarzeń miało miejsce przy tytułowym stole. Any reader will recognise the behaviours and may also have experienced the family dramas themselves. This is beautifully observed and will be familiar to anyone who is a mother or a daughter - the compliments, the nagging and the antagonising - the done in just a few words with the conversation moving quickly on.

We follow each of the equally flawed characters over the course of the year after the announcement and see how it affects them all. When Linda and Gerry Maguire announce their separation after decades of marriage, their thirtysomething children find the news difficult to digest.

Oh to be a reader all the time instead being restricted to a single silly mind and body that has to feel feelings and take things personally. A character explicitly tells one of the protagonists that he’s about to show her a video of his kid.

This is the story of a family of four; the Maguires, in all their messy, honest and wonderful glory. Trochę wynika to z faktu, że chociaż rodzeństwo jest niewiele starsze ode mnie, ciężko było mi zrozumieć ich reakcje. I enjoyed it, but found Nicole unlikeable and Jamie wishy washy, so I wasn’t that concerned about what happened to them.But as the siblings grapple with the pressures of thirtysomething life, their parents struggle to protect the fragile facade of their own relationship, and the secrets they’ve both been keeping. I think Powell has done a stellar job of portraying your average family dynamics; for the Maguires, it becomes obvious that so much has been left unsaid by all four of them, leading to misunderstandings and resentments building up. Interesting and unlikeable characters (in some aspects) who are well fleshed out and easy to connect to. Sometimes the novels chosen are new, often they are from the backlist and occasionally re-issued from way back.
