I loved this book and could not stop thinking about it after reading it. It is by no means a perfect book. At times, the author seems prone to flaunting her literary chops for their own sake, not in service to the book. The main characters are unevenly developed. However, there are flashes of real brilliance , especially in the "Furies" part of it. This is a fascinating exploration of a unique marriage, but larger themes can be explored. Are we responsible for our own happiness or at the whim of life's "fates and furies"?

The author skillfully reveals the layers of the protagonist's stories. However, I did not like the two characters so much. The author puts them forward as such charismatic people but couldn't convey that to me. It is interesting and has alot of twists and turns.
