    I think the main problem with this book is that the author relies heavily on summary rather than description or dialogue to tell the story None of the characters seem fleshed out as a result I had no opinion about whether the protagonist should stay with her husband Mark or try to reconnect with a previous suitor because I didn't g

    I found parts of this book good I thought the beginning set up a good story At times however I found the writing particularly confusing I kept rereading sentences oftentimes moving on still unsure of what the author was trying to convey I also found many of the author's analogies inapt Once I decided not to rea

    I have this tendency sometimes conscious and sometimes not to gravitate towards books that deal with themes ideasproblemsthat I'm dealing with in my own life In the fall when my sister in law was undergoing treatment for alcoholism I read book after book that touched on addiction issues In January apparently the month in which the most marriage breakdowns take place I found out that two of my close friends were dealing with infidelity in

    Attachment connotes different things How a bout a flying bird carrying a blank document in its beak? Sort of like “a message in a bottle”? No? For that reason I almost didn’t pull the book off the shelf and take it home with me That’s the New York publishing world for you specifically Alfred A Knopf sil

    Read the STOP SMILING interview with Attachment author Isabel FonsecaNEGATIVE CAPABILITIESIt’s 10 am in Primrose Hill London Author Isabel Fonseca sits in her kitchen “tanking up on coffee” An American by birth and a New Yorker at heart she remains in disbelief that she’s lived in England for over 25 years “It’s payment for my sins” she says “Or maybe I just forgot to leave”Her tone has a throwaway flash to it

    Not recommendedThe 2 star average rating given for this book is a pretty accurate representation of the response of our book group who felt that the sexual content was rather too explicit and the story itself was a bit weak In reward for our efforts to finish the book we weren't even sure whether the protagonist stayed with her h

Attachment

At propels her on to alarming and illuminating adventures of her own Isabel Fonseca explores the impulses that color and disrupt our lives even as they reveal ever clearly the nature of love From the Trade Paperback editi. I just got off a two day binge read of Attachment by Isabel Fonseca after finding it by chance in a used bookstore in Paris I wish I had not read it so fast but it is one of those books that grabs your heart mind and keeps you absolutely enthralled Just when I thought OK I can see where this is going it would veer off into an absolutely unexpected new path that made my heart pump and kept me awake til 2am both nights The author s keen intelligence dry humor and stark honest description of the jarring incomprehension that lives between long married people were startlingly realistic Also appreciated is the sensual pleasure she seems to take in describing places tastes animals and things of all kinds from a rusty fat refrigerator on a bumpy island road to an embarrassingly frumpy tote bag hidden and found under a chic bookstore table from those heart stopping chance sightings of a green hummingbird to the sorrow that fills you when you see a tired overgrown unloved garden all these descriptions make the prose jump off the page and land suare in your psyche like a friendly but heavy cat that refuses to budge from your lapI loved this book and will probably read it again something I virtually never do because I suspect there is to the plot the insights of misapprehensions and confusion than I realized the first time around I came out of the reading feeling like it was about someone just like me though living an entirely foreign life to mine And I want to go back to try to figure how I got it all so terribly wrong and what I might do next to keep things together Spoiler alert the end is not conclusive

After than twenty years of life in London Jean and Mark Hubbard decamp to a remote tropical island in the Indian Ocean But when Jean a health columnist discovers a salacious love letter addressed to her husband she realiz. I tore thru the first part of this book when Jean the American writer and Mark her British husband were a nice solid likable couple enjoying their new home on a tropical island telecommuting to her magazine job and his ad agency in London But then as everything gets complicated illicit affairs medical conditions family issues resulting from her parents long ago divorce instead of getting interesting it got harder for me to keep reading Initially there were little holes in the plot that bothered me like when Jean finds a love letter intended for her husband and starts emailing the woman herself well that hardly seems plausible Then when he keeps traveling for business and ostensibly seeing the email girlfriend somehow the subject of their torrid daily email correspondence never comes up Then too it seemed weird that Mark and Jean had abandoned their daughter back home all the while going on and on about how protective they are and how sheltered she is And then all of a sudden there was just so much stuff going on that it got so I just couldn t be bothered Like what Jean had a brother who died when he was 15 But his name was Bill the same as her father s who s in the hospital now with an aneurism feh whatever Two thirds of the way through Jean s life is such a confusing shambles I couldn t even see what she was thinking any The ending was left ambiguous which normally disappoints me but in this case I was just relieved that I was finally done with the book

review Attachment

Es that she has misdiagnosed some acute pathologies in her own life The long idyll of their mutual ease is over and a new uest has just begun Looking for answers Jean goes undercover with a surreptitious correspondence th. After a slow frustrating beginning Hmm my husband may be cheating on me I should probably not be hasty and go to the gym first this became a very satisfying book covering not just infidelity but the potential loss of a father the estrangement of grown siblings and the challenge of seeing your daughter build her own life and make her own mistakes My one criticism is that she didn t develop the husband Mark fully enough there was nothing endearing about him nothing to suggest why she was first or ever drawn to him why she would assume others would be drawn to him besides his money why she was so tolerant of his other faults besides their accumulated life together In fact the only identifying characteristics he possesses are his self absorption and his alcoholism From the other characters in the book I know Fonseca is capable of portraying someone without making a caricature of them why was she so reticent with the husband Because people would want to look for details into what it s like to be married to Martin AmisNOT A SPOILER As I approached the end I dreaded a cop out by Fonseca but rest assured she doesn t cheat the reader An impressive first novel I do hope Fonseca continues to write fiction or has she told her only story
