Summary

Longlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction 2020

A dazzling multi-generational novel, The Most Fun We Ever Had introduces us to the Sorenson family.

When Marilyn and David fall in love in the 1970s, they are blithely ignorant of all that's to come. By 2016, their four radically different daughters are matching wits, harbouring grudges and recklessly igniting old rivalries. When a teenage boy, given up for adoption 15 years before, reappears, long-buried secrets threaten to shatter the lives they've built and reveal the rich and varied tapestry of the Sorenson's past.

Couldn’t get into it at all.

I found the main character irritating beyond belief and couldn’t find any sympathy for her in any capacity. I found the tone of the book self-consciously (smug) middle class and finally gave up after trying several times to get into it but never getting very far.
The narrator was fine. It was the writing I loathed.
