I read The Nest in 2 days. Yes. 2 days. Which is quite a feat with a 4 year old in the house, but I was so sucked into the story.
I am sure the angles and dialogue will not work for everyone. Dysfunctional families do not always make for good reading, but I felt that Ms. D'Aprix Sweeney introduced us to folks we may have actually known or were. There were moments where I found myself rolling my eyes at a few of the character's behavior. Melody got on my last nerve, but redeemed herself.
What I am most happy about is reading a current novel. Hooray for me! Now I am trolling through various Goodreads list in the hopes of coming across another winner. Wish me luck!
