I’m not entirely sure where to start this review. Maybe I should start by saying that I loved reading Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, which the man who wrote this book also wrote. Benjamin Alire Sáenz has a whimsical way of writing and I love reading any of his books. This book wasn’t really an exception but it didn’t leave me wanting to read more. I understand that this book follows a family and it is basically a record of their lives but it just wasn’t as gripping as Aristotle and Dante. I never thought about putting the book aside and throwing it into my DNF pile, so at least there’s that.
*I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review and that fact in no way affected my review in any way*
