Bought this and am re-reading it again! As good as I remember it!! ******Let me say first, I have never liked a sci fi book (I read "2001" aftwards, so it doesn't count). BUT THIS BOOK completely changed my mind and now I at least don't make fun of the genre so much. The climax of this book left me in tears from shock. A reader pours so much emotion in this book, it is one of those you pick up and finish the same day!
I especially loved this book for the extremely acute and perceptive descriptions of Detroit and its suburbs during the mid-to-late 20th century. But Eugenides can really tell an amazing story, winding across continents and decades, and his protagonist is someone who will stay with you for long after you finish. To me, the best parts of the book were about the grandparents.
