This Is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper

This was my book clubs August book. In our discussion we dubbed it a boy book, and wished we had a a male view point on it. Lacking that insight, all you get is mine…

The book is crazy in an over the top, can that much crap really happen to one family, sort of way. Then just when you think that you can’t possible read any more about infidelities, dysfunctional relationships, and guilty childhoods someones testicles start on fire and it makes you laugh just enough to keep reading. Then you reach the end, and it is lame.

Would I recommend it? No. Since it’s a boy book  I’m curious what he other gender thinks.  If you are a man, and you’ve read it let me know!
