    A most enjoyable read!

    I really enjoyed this novel. Jennifer Egan opened a world of gangsters and thugs in New York during the Second World War and imbued these characters with varying degrees of humanity. She layered this story with the issues of being a female in the work force and the sex stereotyping around men’s work and women’s work, the social stigmas of homosexuality and unmarried mothers. I was fascinated by the details involving deep water diving.Her writing while densely informative is also luminous and at times poetic.

    Well Written

    If you have read Visit From the Goon Squad, it is important to let go any preconceived ideas of the type of story this will be. Jennifer Egan tells a very different tale in Manhattan Beach, one that is worthy on its own.

    Thought it would be better

    It was pretty good, but didn't hold my interest. I was wanting to finish it and get on with my next book.
