    2. Some of it was very compelling but didn t like the last several pages Also, I would have liked to know under what circumstances Frank and the son had gotten to know each other No word about Adam at the end and why was Alice moving into the house I think I liked The Right Hand Shore the best.

    3. The family relationships in this novel feel very true to life Their unresolved issues become the driving force of the plot.

    4. From a male perspective, this is a beautifully written novel about the relationship between a son and his father.

    5. Well written, intense, uncomfortable in many spots Want to read by this author Somewhere between three and four stars.

    6. What an incredible closure to lives destroyed by bad politics and cheating politicians i wish I could have had that type of closure with my parents but sadly they died without asking my permission.
