  • Good Company is good company!

    Good Company by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney was quite a thought provoking book. It really made me stop and think. Does something that happened years ago really define a relationship or is it just a blip on the radar? When Flora married Julian she thought they had a love that would hold them together forever. Once their daughter graduates and is heading off to college, Flora stumbles a across something that makes her question her marriage and her relationship with her best friend. It made me stop and think about my relationship and what I would do in the same circumstance. I always thought I knew what I would do and now I’m not so sure. I loved this book for that very reason. It made me think and question what I thought I knew. I wasn’t able to read this story and just move along to the next book. Most of the characters were multifaceted. The story was told at times from each characters viewpoint. I loved the symbolism of Julian cutting down the tree. You’ll have to read the book to figure that out and as I think about it there were more symbols used throughout the story. Overall, this was a great book. It is one that will make you think. It is well worth your time to read Good Company because…it is! I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher and Netgalley for a fair and honest review. Thank you!

  • Good Company

    Good Company is the latest book by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney. The main focus of this story is Flora and the people who are closest to her. Ms Sweeney goes back and forth in time and does use some points of views other than Flora. Ms Sweeney does an excellent job of making the reader feel Flora's emotions. I want to thank NetGalley and HarperCollins Publishers for a copy to review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Good Company

    I enjoyed the book - the author did an excellent job of going back & forth between the present & the past. I think I enjoyed The Nest a lot more.

  • Marital Strife Examined

    Synopsis: Flora Mancini has been married to her husband, Julian, for over twenty years and she feels that they have a successful, happy marriage. They have a daughter, Ruby, that is about to graduate from high school and head off to college soon. She feels that life has been good to her -- that is until she discovers Julian’s wedding ring hidden in an envelope in a filing cabinet. Years ago, Julian had told Flora that he had lost the ring so what is it doing in the cabinet? After Ruby’s graduation, she confronts Julian and gets the truth of what happened with that ring. Learning the truth also brings about another betrayal when she discovers that her best friend Margo knew what happened with the ring and never told her. What does she do with the truth now that she knows it?? My thoughts: I enjoyed the story overall. I found the majority of the characters likeable with the usual human foibles and I think the author did a good job of fleshing out Flora’s emotions and feelings when dealing with this crack in her marriage. I also had to laugh at the character of Ruby and the accurateness of the teenager thinking that everything that happens is about them. I gave this book 3/5 stars on Goodreads. Thank you to Netgalley and Ecco Publishing for a digital copy of this book along with Harper Audio for the audiobook version in exchange for an honest review. The narrator of the audio book is Marin Ireland and this is not the first audiobook that I have listened to where she was the narrator and once again, she did a fantastic job with this book. If you are interested in reading Good Company, I recommend the audio book. With respect to this author, I read her first novel, The Nest and I loved that book. I found it so interesting because intellectually it was about trusts (the financial kind) and I dealt with estates and trusts for many years of my working life so it was a very relevant story to me but at its heart it was a family drama. If you haven’t read The Nest, I highly recommend it.

    Thanks for your feedback!
