The Green Road

Ma. I can’t think of a single element that Anne Enright could have gotten better in her novel titled, The Green Road. The prose is lyrical, and never overdone; she chooses the exact word that fits in every finely crafted sentence. The characters in the Madigan family are so expertly developed that every page adds to some insight about our human condition thanks to Enright’s insight into people and our emotional depths. Four siblings living in different parts of the world couldn’t be less alike until we see them in settings with their mother. As Ma draws her children home, the world narrows and the unimportant gives way to the essential. Fans of finely written literary fiction will find a lot to enjoy from reading this novel. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase The Green Road from amazon.com.
