    All her life, she had learned that passion, like fire, was a dangerous thing It so easily went out of control. 4 1 2 stars You should go into this book expecting what it is a slow moving character portrait filled with complex family dynamics and small town politics If you know what this is, like with Ng s Everything I Never Told You, and don t go into it expecting fast pacing and high octane drama, you will probably find this quiet read

    4.25 stars Little Fires Everywhere is such an apt title for a novel that delves into the intricacies and angst that undoubtedly burns through some relationships maybe none so than mother and daughter At its core, this story explores the notion that being a mother doesn t mean being perfect it comes down to love, sacrifice and sheer will Through her cast of captivating characters, Celeste Ng confronts the reality that haunts us all each an

    My reviews can also be seen at Little Fires Everywhere is my first read by Celeste Ng, but I m pretty sure that it won t be my last I could easily have read this book in just one or two sittings but life got in the way in this case life being a glass of 7up, a knee jerk and Nooo Save the books But once the book was dry, I picked it up again and didn t stop until I finished the last page.Everything in Shaker Heights is planned and there are

    Dang If this book does not get your brain churning, well, then you did not read the same book I just did This book is filled with so many scenarios with so many questions and no perfect answers Every situation is a little pile of kindling and any of the questionable solutions will only ignite the fire soon you have a bunch of fires ready to burn everything to the ground Man, that would be a great title for this book Oh wait .It has been a lo

    Most of the time, everyone deserves than one chance We all do things we regret now and then You just have to carry them with you Never in my life have I read any book, any narrative, that cared as deeply for all of its characters as this one did Little Fires Everywhere lives in the grey area, leaving it impossible not to be invested, impossible not to love every character and cry for every character and root for every character, despite all

    I d rate this 3.5 stars I know, it s killing me, too Sometimes one of my greatest frustrations with books I read is that it is difficult for me to believe that a character would do something egregious as a knee jerk reaction to something they don t agree with I know, I m reading fiction, which isn t always directly based on real life, but sometimes a character s actions are so ridiculous and ring so false that they really change my feelings about a

    I think it s safe to say that I ll read everything Celeste Ng ever writes.Just like in a mystery book, you have to work at getting to the root of her stories She doesn t hand you the plot from the get go, but instead offers you kernels of the story until everything comes together at the very end Although this can lead to frustration or boredom, especially with the sometimes barebones plot, I loved it.I m very much a character focused reader, and this
