Look At Me - Book Review

Look at Me: A Novel Look at Me: A Novel by Jennifer Egan

This was an interesting book. No real plot that I could tell but I still read it.

The reason?

The characters. Each character is so interesting and so different, yet they are all interconnected in some way. They have their secrets, their faults and I just couldn't wait to see what was going to happen to them next.

So, who are these people?

There is the main character, Charlotte, a twenty-something model that had to have reconstructive surgery to her face after a car accident. Her old high school friend, Ellen, who is now married and has two children, one in remission from leukimia. The eldest, Charlotte, is sixteen, experimenting with sex and older men. Her uncle and Ellen's brother, Moose, a brilliant but troubled professor, who was institutionalized for awhile.

Like I said, interesting and captivating. It is like finding out about the gossip of people you once knew.
