Snapshot Book Review: The Emperor's Children

The Emperor's Children The Emperor's Children by Claire Messud

My review

rating: 2 of 5 stars
I got "into" this book about 2/5 of the way through but by the end felt let down. I was anxious to see something happen, to get some sort of fulfillment for all of the complicated, anxiety-ridden relationships that were woven between characters, but the end was a long drawn-out wash in my opinion.

Also, this book did not even bother to capture any sense of NYC, which I find disappointing, since I now know firsthand what great fodder there is to be had.
