    Maggie Shipstead Ï 6 review review Ï PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ï Maggie Shipstead review Seating Arrangements I read so many great reviews about this book that I thought I has to be great Now having just finished I am wondering what all the hype is about? Maybe I am not sophisticated enough to enjoy a book about a family that I thought were not very deep and so self involve they can't be bothered to think about anyone but themselves I don't know it was just a big let down The Story is about Winn a 59 year old marrie

review Seating Arrangements Maggie Shipstead Ï 6 review review Ï PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ï Maggie Shipstead Ull of champagne salt air and practiced bonhomie but long buried discontent and simmering lust stir beneath the surface Winn Van Meter father of the bride is not having a good time Barred from the exclusive social club he’s been eyeing since birth he’s also tormented by an inappropriate crush on Daphne’s beguiling bridesmaid Agatha. In a strange twist of irony this book came to me as a recommendation from Sarah of at a time when I was literally working on seating arrangements for our daughter s upcoming wedding SerendipityThankfully this group of pretentious shallow WASP ish characters in the book bears no relationship to my own family But what fun they were to read about The VanMeter family which includes the pregnant bride to be Daphne her parents Winn and Biddy along with her sisters and the bridal party gather at their summer home the weekend before the wedding What follows is wickedly funny social satireIf you enjoy a well written story with dysfunctional characters you love to hate then this is the book for you There are deeper meanings underneath the ridiculousness that makes it a light read with substance My one criticism and what kept it from a 4 star rating is too much time was spent on Winn and his midlife crisis musings As amusing as they were in small doses it grew tiresome after a while Making him just a little bit relatable and sympathetic would have gone a long wayA solid enjoyable 3 stars

Have I all of a sudden become 85 years old and intolerant of all popular culture Last night I gasped and tssked through the film adaptation of The Descendants sputtering that if viewers see that George Clooney s own children don t respect him then they re going to be all like oh well I guess it s okay if my kids don t respect me either And now here I am reading Seating Arrangements by Maggie Shipstead and being similarly outraged This book in a word is MISOGYNISTIC The whole premise is INAPPROPRIATE I get that it s poking fun at a guy who wants only to achieve acceptance of his peers and values WASPy aspirations over any paternal or marital happinesses but jeez why does this book have to trivialize everything feminine Why do the sisters have to hate each other so palpably Why can t anyone show anybody any mercy or courtesy or chivalry Why is the message here that sex is meaningless and girls suck and rich people are turds and blue collar laborers are also And that it s funny to tell the elderly grandmother of your daughter s future husband that she is dying soon What The whole time I read this I was just like why do we no longer need to have morals or ethics what is wrong with America I think I just need to read classics from previous centuries because first novels today totally sicken me
