“The story of a mother, her son, and daughter, and her daughter’s suitor that brings to life human beings who cling to a dream world that can so easily be shattered into jagged pieces.” -Goodreads


“Time is the longest distance between two places.”

I ashamed to say this will not be a very long blog because one this is not a very long book and two I don’t really know what to say.

I thought this book was kind of boring. I had to read this book for school and it took me a week to read it but in all honesty, it could have probably taken an hour. This story is a play and it is probably a fantastic play but I wasn’t that interested in reading it because it was just boring. I thought some things were interesting and I loved how Williams wrote in loads of symbols and had a really tragic play exemplifying dysfunctional American families. But other than that I wasn’t the biggest fan of it.

I think this book is one for people with different tastes than me. I don’t think it was like that intriguing. I thought it was really well written but I didn’t like the story that much. I don’t believe that my opinion should deter anyone from reading this. This book was just not the story for me.

Star Rating: 3
