The last book I read by Ann Patchett was State of Wonder. It was the sort of book I will be able to remember particular details about years from now. That means it was different and kept my interest. Below is her latest book, Commonwealth. I feel pretty much the same way about it, even though the 2 books are absolutely nothing alike. Except that they both are well written, and involve characters in situations that I would never be able to come up with, if I was writing a book, which I am not.
Luckily Ann Patchett has the kind of mind that does think up stuff like this. Combined with the skill to spin it together and lay it out in a nice package for the rest of us to enjoy. Highly recommended. Someone named it one of the best books of 2016. I concur.
If you have read other Ann Patchett novels, tell me, which one should I get next?
