This is Your Life

This is Your LifeThis is Your Life by Meg Wolitzer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The story of several lives and how we influence them, or let them influence us.

First thoughts: This is definitely a Meg Wolitzer - character driven, with beautiful poetic lines - yet I can tell it's an early Meg Wolitzer.

Favorite quote: "She was not a deep well, a bottomless pit, as she used to imagine herself. There were limits, she thought, and it was a relief to feel that there were edges around you, a membrane that kept you from spilling out into the world." -p256

Recommended for: lovers of characters and human interactions, larger-than-life personas, those who try to hard, and those who don't have to try at all.

Final thoughts: This is Your Life is entertaining, but not all parts were cohesive. I'd like an updated version, or just something Wolitzer has written more recently.
