The Marriage Plot

I read Jeffery Eugenides’ The Marriage Plot in about three days. My honest opinion? It was odd. I liked it. I did, but it was just odd. I think that a book about a manic-depressive can only be so happy, but I did like the love Madeleine had for Leonard. She was really committed to loving a man who really needed to be committed.

The whole time I thought she should run for the hills and into Mitchell’s arms. Looking back at Mitchell – he was actually quite nutty as well. The whole book was a bit odd, but it entertained me. I am hoping the next book I pick up does more than entertain me.
