Review: All the Best People

All the Best People by Sonja Yoerg
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

"All the Best People" is a solidly good story. It kept me interested enough to stick with it to the end although I did struggle at the beginning a bit with the slow pace of the plot. The story time slips back and forth and bouncers around quite often between four female characters of the same family over three generations. Unfortunately I think the author could have cut back on some of the points of view or the number of individual stories that were going on in the novel. I feel like the book scurried over a lot of different topics that are all important and could all make really interesting good stories but all together it was to much for one book. Rather than giving each plot enough time and attention to supply a fulfilling novel. I kind of felt like I had a superficial introduction into a bunch of people's lives and they all happened to be each others relations but there was no strong thread binding these stories together.
