The Latecomers Fan Club

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
What is it about guys with guitars in their hands that makes them so irresistible, even when they are obviously self-centered jerks? If Abby and Maggie could answer that question, maybe they could finally get over Nathaniel. There’s just something about him when he picks up his guitar and gets behind the microphone, something that makes sensible women act like teenyboppers. More

Review by: Cristina Rosa on Nov. 06, 2013 :
The moment I got the book and started reading I simply couldn't put it out. I was literally on the edge of my seat just waiting for the next page all the time. I loved how the characters and their truly unique complexity, frustrations, and sympathies. The characters truly evolve throughout the book and I really felt like I was a part of their journey. That approach was a much more realistic one to me comparing to the predictable characters in other books. This book will surely be the topic of many different discussion about the modern women. I Highly Recommend it!

Review by: A Prosper on Nov. 05, 2013 :
I really loved this novel. The characters are beautifully described and you truly feel for all of their tensions, disappointments and dreams. The structure of the book helps with that, as alternating chapters focus on the different points of views and experiences of each main character. The plot presents real-life, adult problems to navigate...divorce and breakups, babies, careers, drinking too much...and it shows how every decision reverberates out and affects other lives, including minor characters like one of Nathaniel's students, and his mother. All of these lent a really credible tone to the story, and caused me as a reader to get very invested, because I could see myself in many of the roles in the many relationships. Ultimately this is a story about second chances, about unfinished business and dreams, and about what it means to start over--or circle back. Really well written with great dialogue and sense of place throughout. I highly recommend.
