Tough-o-Meter

(6) Tree Line

This is a whopper of a book. But while the language isn't too tricky (Wolitzer is no James Joyce, thankfully), the jumping back and forth between time frames can be hard to follow. It's also a strong mix of dialogue and narration, so the reading rhythm changes all the time. For these reasons, The Interestings can be slow going. That said, as the big picture starts to come together, we think you'll be impressed by how many threads are woven together, and find that the hike is totally worth it for he view.
