Three Junes

three-junesWho: Julia Glass

Why: You read the award winners; you have some Irish in your blood; you like Greek islands; you love collies; or you simply enjoy a good family saga.

Many critics took issue with this book’s winning the National Book Award, but I liked it. I won’t second-guess whether the book deserved that high honor, but it was a good read for me. I noticed it when it was published in 2002, but I finally read it only last month.

Now I have her most recent book, The Whole World Over, on my TBR stack. I thoroughly enjoyed her writing, although I found her characters in this book to be a bit stilted and one-dimensional in some cases. Overall, though, I’m willing to give the author another chance.
