I love Joyce Carol Oates and this book is a great example of her work. I read it prior to it making it onto Oprah's Book Club list, but recently read it again after receiving another copy. It isn't necessarily for someone who doesn't like long, descriptive narratives of books, but I enjoy her writing style. We Were The Mulvaneys is an example of how everyone should be careful not to envy others for appearing to have perfect lives, because chances are high that they don't.

This book is a great family story of how not all families are like on t.v. when you get underneath the surface.

Thoughly enjoyed this book. There were parts I felt the author went into too much detail, but aside from that it was a good read.

This is a chick's book - a little depressing, but overall an up-beat message. It's also an Oprah Book Club book.
