I started out lukewarm with the book because I found the main character so stuffy and unrelatable to me, but as the book continued, I found Macon Leary less annoying than endearing, less stuffy than quirky. I enjoyed the story.
such a great writer, loved this book!
Good book. Fun to read. A love story with quirky characters that strike familiar and sometimes uncomfortable truths with the reader.
One of Anne Tyler's best novels - I enjoyed this oh-so-much. Much better than the movie of the same name, of course.
Anne Tyler writes some outlandish stories! This is one of her best.
Classic Tyler. Meet Macon Leary, a travel write who hates both travel and strangeness. Grounded by loneliness, comfort and an odd domestic life, Macon is about to embark on a new journey, called love, arriving in the shape of a fuzzy-haired dog trainer...
Macon Leary is a travel writer who hates to travel. He seems to never choose anything in his life, it all just falls in his lap until he decides that he needs to make a choice himself.
Better than the movie! (Though the movie was pretty great.) Ann Tyler never disappoints.
Loved this book, even better than the movie.
If you enjoyed Breathing Lessons you will enjoy this book too. It has the same quirky charm.
