Book Review: This is Where I Leave You by Jonathon Tropper

Friday, February 08, 2013

Plot Synopsis from Amazon:
"The death of Judd Foxman's father marks the first time that the entire Foxman clan has congregated in years. There is, however, one conspicuous absence: Judd's wife, Jen, whose affair with his radio- shock-jock boss has recently become painfully public. Simultaneously mourning the demise of his father and his marriage, Judd joins his dysfunctional family as they reluctantly sit shiva-and spend seven days and nights under the same roof. The week quickly spins out of control as longstanding grudges resurface, secrets are revealed and old passions are reawakened. Then Jen delivers the clincher: she's pregnant. This Is Where I Leave You is Jonathan Tropper's most accomplished work to date, and a riotously funny, emotionally raw novel about love, marriage, divorce, family, and the ties that bind-whether we like it or not."

My take:
Alternating between funny and sad this book made me both laugh out loud and almost cry because of its honesty. I think I found a new favorite author. EXCELLENT BOOK!

    It is always nice to have someone "test read" a book for you who is not a paid reviewer.

    Keep on Keepin' on
