This Is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper
Review by Heidi
This is where I leave you is about a dysfunctional Jewish family that comes back together to sit Shiva for their dead father. Predictably, over the course of the novel, the four siblings rekindle a bond together. But this book is not as predictable as you might expect. The characters are rich in their development and the story is laugh-out-loud funny! You grow to love even the most flawed people. The humour and family members reminded me of the Bluth's in Arrested Development – one of my favourite TV series ever! Not surprisingly, the book is already being made into a screenplay. I highly recommend this one – you won't regret it!
