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.

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.
