Weather by Jenny Offill

Weather is full of fragments and glimpses of moments of the life of Lizzie, who works in a college library, and who has a son in first grade and a husband who makes educational video games. 

I can see why it gets raves, and I wanted to rave about it too. But it wasn’t really for me. Maybe it’s the choppy, free-form narrative style that didn’t work for me. Maybe I just needed something more tangible and this was the wrong book at the time. 

Did you read Weather? What did you think about it?
