About this deal
I also had some issues towards the end of the book. (No spoilers, I promise). Jonah starts to unravel, and really strange things start to happen. I initially thought it was an excellent example of an unreliable narrator, that Jonah was really, really losing it and his perception of reality was slipping. But by the end of the book this appears to have not been the case, which kind of ruined things for me a bit. I mean, some of these things were really bizarre or just straight up weren’t explained at all.The ending is really abrupt, so maybe that's where my issue lies. Things went nuts and then things just ended. Things to do for all ages including activities for little ones; from adrenaline-fuelled adventures, to calming and creative activities And the supporting characters? Honestly I liked his brother to begin with and their relationship was reasonable but what the hell happened in that last section? It wasn't even a logical turn for the kid to suddenly start acting like an asshole. And his friends, in particular the girls, god they were just as bad. In fact, I'd happily go as far as to say no-ones development was particularly satisfying throughout the novel.
The Break - Marian Keyes
After a breakup, we often reflect on the things left unsaid. When Lydia is found dead in a lake, her parents are reeling from the loss and the pain of the things they never told their daughter. This book explores the challenges of trying to truly know someone and our struggle to understand one another.This was the book that should have won Canada reads, my apologies to André Alexis, but this was the book that could help to heal Canada. And below the surface of the story, shared memories and metaphors link their two minds, as MacLaverty shows how decades of intimacy work to mingle consciousnesses as well as experience, and yet how far we remain unknowable to each other. In some ways the novel is a study in perspective, as the pair move between intimacy and distance.

Aspects of Jeremiah’s story or personality were dropped in at moments when they would be most useful, or most funny, but not fully realized. Often his stated beliefs did not align with his actions. Additionally, Jeremiah’s daughter is not present enough in the narrative to form a connection with, and so his mission feels superficial.But why break bones?
