    Paperback í Commonwealth ePUB Ì commonwealth mobile, Commonwealth MOBI1 star After reading 50% of this book I'm going to stop I know this book has fantastic reviews and I respect that but this is just not for me I was waiting for something to happen to pique my interest and it just didn't by the halfway point The main problem for me is that I am a mother of young children which makes me overly sensitive toward these innocent kids I had a hard time with all of the child neglect and poor parenting decisions in this book I had a VERY hard time stomaching the Benadrylgingun incident with the six children little Albie being only 5 or 6 years old?? And the parents showing up at the children's motel room at 2pm the next day saying they slept in??? Or Teresa getting excited to have summers off from her children? Then Teresa sending them on a plane to their fathers house for a couple months without luggage??? Teresa was trying to punish her ex by making him buy everything the kids needed but it's the kids who would suffer without their personal belonging

    Paperback í Commonwealth ePUB Ì commonwealth mobile, Commonwealth MOBI388 who do I appreciate?I’ve been putting off writing this review because I’ve been hoping that as time goes on I’ll sit up and chirp instead of sit down and burp But alas I am not chirping The song is or less forgotten so I can’t in good conscience give this a wowsy 4 stars It’s like a 388 who do I appreciate which I will round up to 4 because well ultimately I do appreciate Ann Patchett I’m messed up when it comes to this writer I insanely loved State of Wonder declaring it an all time favorite but absolutely hated Bel Canto I read a couple of other books by her that I liked but nothing came anywhere close to State of Wonder Then along came Commonwealth and expectations were high Of course I want everything she writes to do the same thing that State of Wonder did to me but it’s a setup for failure when you want to re create something that was perfect like trying to fin

    Paperback í Commonwealth ePUB Ì commonwealth mobile, Commonwealth MOBII am afraid I am going to be the outlier on this one I wanted to love it I was so sure I would love it that I purchased the hardcover copy to cherish which I rarely do I adore Ann Patchett I just could not connect with this family drama or any of the characters I can't fault her writing or the story or how it was laid out it just was not compelling to me I liked it in a very mild way but I am not sure I'll remember much about it in a few monthsI'm sorry fellow Patchett lovers Not my favorite of her works
