Review: Fates and Furies

Fates and Furies Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I decide to write a review I usually do not include a plot synopsis. What I consider is the story and how the writer conveys her ideas. To describe this novel as simply the story of a marriage undermines the intensity with which Lauren Groff tells the story of Lotto and Mathilde.

First we read about the husband. The second half concerns the wife. And woven in between their stories are the lives that lie hidden. It's an amazing work and I applaud Lauren Groff for maintaining its intensity throughout the book.
