From Jennifer Weiner, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Who Do You Love and In Her Shoes comes a smart, thoughtful, and timely exploration of two sisters’ lives from the 1950s to the present as they struggle to find their places—and be true to themselves—in a rapidly evolving world. Mrs. Everything is an ambitious, richly textured journey through history—and herstory—as these two sisters navigate a changing America over the course of their lives.
I love a good book that makes you appreciate sisters. While I normally prefer first person narratives as I feel I get to know the narrator better, both of the main characters were so easy to get to know and love even though things weren’t deliberately told from their view. Overall so well written and thought-provoking - and especially hard to put down!55
I am a big fan and loved her other books but I couldn’t even finish this one. There are very few books I don’t finish but this one felt like a chore. I really didn’t care about the characters or what happened to them.15
I wasn’t excited about the ending, I have to say I loved the book.55
Jennifer Weiner never cease to amaze me. Pure talent!55
One very long cliche15
Sister and mother/daughter relationships are complex. Jennifer captures the beauty and chaos very well. She also has a way of making even the most difficult characters lovable. While I think there were several loose ends that could have been explored a little more, overall I didn't want it to end.55
Mrs. Everything is the story of all women - you’ll find some part of your own experience reflected here, whether you’re gay, straight, white, brown, young or old, and I can’t wait to book club the heck out of it!55
