Beautifully written yet ultimately unsatifying novel from one of my favorite writers, O'Nan. Art and Marion have lost almost everything- their marriage is fractured from infidelities and they are on the verge of losing their home. In a last desperate weekend, they revisit Niagara Falls, the site of their honeymoon, and bet their last remaining assets on a roulette wheel.
This is a log of what books I've been reading and movies I've been watching. Comments are welcome!
One explanation seems necessary - the phrase "Life-Changing Fiction" is not in any way an endorsement of those books- in fact, I think those books are Awful, and want that to be clear. "Life-Changing Fiction", as a phrase, has been trademarked, absurdly, by the "Christian fiction" writer Karen Kingsbury, and that is Just Not Right. Aside from being ridiculous, it just sheds light on the hypocrisy of the writer. What would Jesus copyright?
