Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quite a Good Book A Wedding in December, by Anita Shreve, tells the story of a group of former high school friends who meet about 30 years after graduation for the wedding of two of their classmates. I really enjoyed this book as we learn about the stories from high school and learn about the people the characters have all become. Many of the characters are fraught with human frailties and, even thirty years later, continue to be shaped by events shared with their close high school friends. The book was both easy and interesting to read.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't like the ending Although I sometimes found the story within the story more interesting at times than the actual story, I still enjoyed the book. I wasn't fond of the ending though, as it was left a little too open for my liking. The excerpt from her new book "Body Surfing" was a nice bonus at the end too. If you like Anita Shreve, you will like this book as well.
