Family in Fiction

This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper is an enjoyable fictional account of family life. The characters are well-defined and interesting, and the dialogue is witty and humorous. The Jewish references are more recognizable by someone who grew up in a Jewish family; however, I believe everyone can recognize parts of their own family within the characters and the events.The ending is left open and somewhat undefined. Although that didn’t affect my enjoyment of the book, others may find it to have a lack of closure.
