#86 — A Spool of Blue Thread: A Novel

A Spool of Blue Thread: A Novel by Anne Tyler

  • Rating: 4/5
  • Similar to A Thousand Acres, this book is about how children deal with the inevitable decline of their aging parents and the chaos it ensues. Unlike A Thousand Acres, this book focuses more on the experienes of the parents
  • The family house is a central character in the book, an embodiment of the hopes and dreams of an earlier generation
  • There are really no happy endings; life inevitably goes on, so props for realism
