"Waiting On" Wednesday: A Fortunate Age




This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

A Fortunate Age
By Joanna Smith Rakoff
Publication Date: April 7

From Barnes & Noble:

"Like Mary McCarthy's classic tale of coming-of-age in New York, The Group, Joanna Smith Rakoff's richly drawn and immensely satisfying first novel details the lives of a group of Oberlin graduates whose ambitions and friendships threaten to unravel as they chase their dreams, shed their youth, and build their lives in Brooklyn during the late 1990s and the turn of the twenty-first century. Set against the backdrop of the vast economic and political changes of the era--from the decadent age of dot-com millionaires to the sobering post-September 11th landscape--Smith Rakoff's deeply affecting characters and incisive social commentary are reminiscent of the great Victorian novels."

What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

I've seen this on an editor's top picks for 2009, but there's a discussion on Library Thing where people are talking about really struggling with this one.

This is the first look selection for Barnes and Noble. There are a lot of adverse comments, mine included. I just plain gave up after reading the first 5 chapters. Believe me, I am not usually a quitter when it comes to books. This one and Blonde Roots had me saying, ehnough is enough!

How disappointing to hear! I was really looking forward to this one. The premise sounded so promising...!

Wanted to get mine posted before I leave for work. I've posted two this week: one I read as an ARC and one that's in the mail to me. Historical/contemporary fiction and women's fiction. My post is here

Hmm, I'll have to put this on a "maybe" list, I guess.
Mine’s here.
