If you are a girl and your parents get divorced when you are very young you will either become promiscuous and incapable of real intimacy OR you will marry some abusive asshat and live your life uietly drinking yourself to death All right so maybe that’s not the take home message Yates was going for After all Yates himself came from a broken home; his parents divorced when he was just three years old And he was twice divorced himself so I guess you could say the man knows a thing or two about the topic Despite the bleak subject matter I found myself loving this book It’s a simple unsentimental story that follows the lives of two sisters over the course of 4 decades Emily and Sarah have a rough go of it – their father is an alcoholic their mother seems a status hungry twit with alcohol issues of her own Sarah decides to marry the first man who comes along while Emily goes from partner to partner and is in line with the typical “career girl” Yet neither girl is content with the choices she has made and each seems to envy the other in some “grass is a little greener” sort of way No one really comes out on top here It’s that sort of realism that I appreciated most reading Yates I had previously seen the film version of Revolutionary Road but other than that this was my first exposure to his writing It’s one of those engaging little novels that can be gobbled up in one sitting if you have the time a perfect summer reading type book

იწვევს თავისი უჩვეულოდ ძუნწი ლაკონური და ამავე დროს The Easter Kindle საოცრად ტევადი თხრობის სტილის წყალობით ამ არცთუ სქელტანიან წიგნში მწერალი ერთი ოჯახის თითქმის სამი თაობის ბედ იღბლ?. The story drawn here is dark It is bleak The tale follows two sisters the older Sarah and Emily four years younger from 1930 when their parents divorce to the 1970s when one sister dies We start with Emily at five and Sarah at nine Their lives follow different patterns Emily gets a scholarship to Barnard College and majors in literature She flits from guy to guy Her sister gets married and stays married no matter what We look at the sisters’ relationship with each other and their mates That’s it That is the whole story Which one has chosen the right path What does the story say about human behavior There is no fairy tale happy endingThe setting is primarily in upper state New York Long Island and New York City This is a book of historical fiction in that it captures behavior prevalent after the war Cocktails and drinking and smoking were the norm Feminism was growing Sexual constraints were uestioned if not simply ignored If loose behavior is going to bother you I don’t advise you to read this book There is also physical abuseRichard Yates is good with his lines Check these out”He looks intelligent even when chewing bubble gum”Here’s a description of intellectuals “You had to be serious but this was the maddening paradox you had to seem to never take anything seriously”Do you see the humor The audiobook is narrated by Kristoffer Tabori He dramatizes He dramatizes in spades I dislike dramatization of audiobooks His dramatization made it difficult for me to focus on the prose His dramatization is however not poorly done if you like dramatization There is a lot of drinking in this novel; I found it exceedingly annoying to listen to the exaggerated slurred speech of those drunk There is anger and there is screaming These are dramatized too This is not an audiobook easy to listen to I have given the narration performance two stars If you enjoy dramatization you will give the narration a much higher ratingThis book is not pleasant to read but it has a message that packs a punch at the end It draws people and difficult situations accuratelyRevolutionary Road 5 starsThe Easter Parade 4 starsCold Spring Harbor TBR

The Easter Parade?ს თანაზიარად გვაქცევს ეს სევდიანი საგა მოგვითხრობს იმაზე რომ ამ ცხოვრებაში არცერთი გზის არჩევა ბედნიერების უპირობო საწინდარი არ არის და არც შეიძლება იყოს სერია „ამერიკელები“. I'm almost fifty years old and I've never understood anything in my whole lifeAre we all destined to go insane Are we all doomed by the damage our parents unwittingly inflicted on us Do we never ever learn a damn thing at all Many of us go through life not realizing until the final hour that history does indeed repeat itself and our parents our well meaning but ill euipped and broken parents ruined us This is certainly the case for Emily and Sarah two sisters from a broken home whose mostly absent father and unstable and alcoholic mother set up the blueprint for a lifetime of bad decisions and misery Yates is a master of painting the picture of the struggling and flawed character and he never cops out with a happy ending tied up in a pretty bow The opening line smacks you in the face with that promise lest you think you're about to embark on a sunny journey Neither of the Grimes sisters would have a happy life and looking back it always seemed that the trouble began with their parents' divorceLife for his characters is a series of disappointments and despair and Emily and Sarah spend their lives over four decades swimming against the tide and ultimately disintegrating Though it wasn't my favorite Yates book all the ingredients I adore about his work were there the denial the loneliness the sorrow
