" I enjoyed this book not because of beautiful writing, although the writing is fine. I liked the mystery of it. Who is crazy? is the question at the heart of the mystery this book is. It's the mystery of a dysfunctional family, several generations of dysfunction. Patrick is too good to be true, but that was fine with me. Lila certainly needed someone this good in order to survive. It was a page turner. Not like the book I'm currently reading, The Three Weissmans of Wesport, which is a page savorer...mostly because of its wicked humor. "
