  1. Is every book set in Ohio This is the second book in a row that I have read set here in Ohio The first one,Knockemstiff, was most excellent Weird Sisters I m sorry to say was shit This book was just, beyond words, sucky Gack I even finished it because I wasn t going to let it beat me.Here s the clever premise Three sisters by the names of Bianca, Cordelia , and Rose short for Roselyn I just don t care are born to a family who can t stop reading ever They are born to parents whose names I don t r [...]


  2. I read about 50 pages of this I found the unknown narrator irritating at first I thought I might have missed who was doing the narrating and kept going back to see, but then I realized the book was supposed to be like that, that there was no one narrator I may be old fashioned but I like knowing who s doing the narrating in a book I suppose this can be considered an antinovel since I haven t seen this kind of narration before I just can t stand it And, while Shakespeare was a brilliant writer, I [...]


  3. Absolutely pitch perfect I would give this ten out of five stars if I could This is the first book I have read that uses a first person plural narrative style, and it was so completely appropriate you get the sense that this book came together with these three sisters sitting around a Pensieve after the events of this book have transpired, looking at them playing out again, and dictating the story to the author, who has set up shop with a typewriter in the adjacent corner of the room.Speaking of [...]


  4. Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum Sisters keep secrets Because sisters secrets are swords This space could probably remain blank and a whole ton of you would go buy The Weird Sisters for this little blurb alone There is no problem that a library card can t solve.I should probably leave it at that because I have no clue what to say about this book Here, allow me to distract you with some giffery Ahhhh, that s better All glory and honor to the HypnoGoldblum You will now give me all of your [...]


  5. I can t even finish this piece of crap book it s so juvenile it s insulting Clearly Eleanor Brown just took some extended writing class and thinks she s an author because she s using every cliche and plot technique to prolong a story that s just not interesting Here are the reasons I know she s an amateur writer 1 She includes insignificant details that are supposed to make her characters round but really have nothing at all to do with the characters why is it important to talk about someone loo [...]


  6. I was struck by a few sentences spoken by the character of Father Aidan on page 305 of my copy of this book There are times in our lives when we have to realize our past is precisely what it is, and we cannot change it But we can change the story we tell ourselves about it, and by doing that, we can change the future I liked the book and the interactions between the sisters the sisters and their parents the sisters and non family members It did seem as if some of the character traits or scenes w [...]


  7. This book sucked It s about 3 sisters who all end up moving back home to help their mother while she s battling breast cancer But they all moved back home at the same time because as they will readily admit they are failures How nice for their mother The oldest, Rose, is an obnoxious know it all who s convinced no one can do anything without her Everyone else is a total screw up and she and she alone will save the day She s ruining her life in the process but she likes being a martyr and pointin [...]


  8. We were three sisters who wanted to write a story that was different from any other Or even if it was a clich , at least we could make it seem different by using the first person plural narrative And by adding a gimmick a father who s a professor of Shakespeare, so that Shakespearean quotations could be thrown in at convenient times to make the reader feel literary and make us seem different.Rose, the oldest, insisted that she be the overfunctioning sister All sister duos in these books must con [...]


  9. When their mother is diagnosed with cancer, Bianca and Cordelia find themselves returning home to join their third sister, Rose, who still lives in their hometown Bean and Cordy aren t returning to support their mother as much as they are impelled by their own messy life situations Bianca because she has been fired for stealing from her job, and Cordelia because after years of living irresponsibly on the road, she has discovered that she is pregnant Stalwart Rose has finally glimpsed a chance at [...]


  10. Three sisters, three different outlooks on life, three different opinions about working, three different attitudes concerning just about everything, but they all had the same reason for coming home.eir mother needed help because of her breast cancer Rose was the practical, organized sister, Bean was the attorney turned thief, and Cordy was still the spoiled child she always was They all had some secret or concern as they returned to their childhood home Their childhood home was one of love, of b [...]


  11. This book started out great I loved the quoting Shakespeare and the story itself told by all three sisters After a while I found the writing annoying It wasn t always easy to understand what Brown was trying to say I persevered and by the middle I just wanted to know what happened I was relieved when I finally finished I felt that this was basically a very juvenile story and I most certainly would not recommend it to anyone By the way, this is the first time I am taking the time to review a book [...]


  12. This book is nothing like the kind of thing I choose to read It is the kind of thing found in the New fiction section at Barnes and Noble, or Literature in other places I m a genre fiction sort of girl, and so this isn t something I d have ever read under normal conditions.But, when the Vice President comes flying down the hall to give you her copy because she s sure you d enjoy itwell And to be fair, we did talk about it when we were doing the Walk for the Cure in October, and our tastes do ove [...]


  13. I would have abandoned this book if I hadn t been traveling this week Much like The Cookbook Collector, it s the story of upper middle class sisters testing the boundaries and distinctions between one another, only here there is an additional veneer of literary vanity in the form of copious quotations from Shakespeare In this book, you see, the sisters father is a professor specializing in the Bard, so they all quote him as the occasion rises It s supposed to be clever, but I came away with the [...]


  14. My TBR pile has grown ridiculously huge of late my house is hoarding half my public library s precious cargo Despite this ever increasing mountain of unread promises, my reading pace has proportionately slowed At a time when I should be blazing through the pages of every book I pick up, I find myself smelling the proverbial roses The faster I burn through a book, the quickly I am to forget it anyway, even the real gems Plus, life just gets in the way sometimes and it s been doing a darn good jo [...]


  15. Up front, I have to say that when I discovered this novel, I went into it with the truest of intentions I mean, I come from a family with three sisters I m the youngest and I know a little bit about Shakespeare happen to love Othello and The Taming of the Shrew But this story just seemed to go into places that I couldn t get into and didn t much care for Only real quick, this wouldn t be a classic Novelwit2000 review, if I didn t bring up the thing with the names I thought it was a novel idea th [...]


  16. Poor Eleanor Brown I think from reading other reviews she unfairly gets a bad rap Yes it s true this book is is not high class literature but it is an interesting take on birth order roles and interactions of siblings It s also true that the characters often are self absorbed malcontents as one good read reviewer put it but their struggles, while they may seem superficial to some, feel genuine and their pain real Also I think the idea of three sibling coming home to care for their ailing mother [...]


  17. Sisters keep secrets Because sisters secrets are swords The small college town of Barnwell, OH welcomes back three of its native daughters whose lives are all in varying degrees of utter catastrophe Rose, who never truly left home, but is feeling the pressure of a fianc whose big dreams lie overseas Bean, whose New York aspirations have ultimately grown into something nefarious and criminal And Cordy, the youngest, whose Bohemian lifestyle has finally managed to catch up to her in one big long t [...]



  18. When I was in my 20s, for every three literary works I read, I would read one mystery and one romance novel, the latter for pure escapsism When I began The Weird Sisters, I was hopeful that it could an ideal combination of fine writing but a fun easier read Indeed, Eleanor Brown has beautiful phrases and expressions sprinkled generously througout this book Unfortunately, it just isn t enough to make The Weird Sisters work for me In talking about a character s pre determined fate vs what can be c [...]


  19. Oh book how I hated thee Let me count the ways One detail that bothered me greatly was that these girls were constantly reading, but never does the author tell us what they are reading I like books about books about books A book about books this was not Then there was the disappointing fact that these sisters were in no way weird They WERE banal, cliche, boring, trite, annoying, and unrealistic First we have Rose the stuffy, plain, type A eldest sister who just needs to learn to give up her drea [...]


  20. A feel good book, something that will burn your heart with affection to the characters, and at the end will warm your heart with its story.The story is simple three sisters who were reunited in their home town to aid their ailing mother There s nothing fancy about the plot, except when you started to read it What I love about the book is how expected each moment can be, yet there is a dash of twist in each way the story was told Each sisters has their own story, which they tried to ran away from [...]


  21. Another unexpected read that I opened by chance and it hooked me, this tale of the three sisters from a reasonably normal small college town family who take quite different life paths only to reunite when thei mother s illness and some major happenings in their life pregnancy, marriage but also messed up career and heartbreak brings them back to their home.A fast and engaging read with well drawn characters


  22. What bibliophile could resist The Weird Sisters, a story about three book loving but otherwise very different sisters all named for characters from Shakespeare I ve succumbed to its charms twice, reading the book in 2011 and listening to the audio version in 2014.My review from 2011 I loved this satisfying, hopeful, intelligent book from start to finish It s a sort of belated coming of age story about three twentysomething, verging on thirtysomething, sisters who grew up in the small college tow [...]


  23. Eleanor Brown the author of this book spoke at our Staff Day this year Turns out, she s a board member for our library district I had no idea I think I only know 2 of the members on the board since I stopped attending the meetings a few years back So much has changed.At any rate, Brown was delightful and hilarious as our keynote speaker and I decided we need to be BFFs But I don t think that s going to happen so, instead, I read this, her first book and now we can t be BFFs because I m not givin [...]


  24. Three women who have sort of failed at life show back up on their parents doorstep after finding out their mother has cancer Eldest sister, Roselyn, is a control freak who uses her mother s illness as an excuse to stay in her hometown while her fiance teaches in Oxford for a year Middle sister, Bianca, ditched her small town to live the big city life in New York, embezzled lots of money from her company for designer clothing, skipped out on rent, and charged up her credit cards Her return to hom [...]


  25. I read that Eleanor Brown simply wanted to write a book about families She claimed that this caused her to incorporate Shakespeare and use the plural narrator When I read her post on The Debutante Ball, Eleanor Brown claimed that her writing comes haphazardly I, for one, don t buy it or if that is true I want some of it Because the truth is, The Weird Sisters is one of the most unique and most real books I have read lately Unique and real don t usually go hand in hand, but Brown managed it brill [...]


  26. This is the story of three sisters who have returned to their Ohio home town to help care for their mother who s receiving treatment for breast cancer But it turns out that their simultaneous return home is coincidental than prompted by desire to nurse their mother All three are escaping their failures in life, all of which are different The sisters themselves are all very much different from each other, the oldest a controlling homebody, the middle one a promiscuous spendthrift, and the younge [...]


  27. I really wanted to like this book, but when I found myself putting it down time after time I knew I was kidding myself First, the sisters were not really weird They were immature, self centered, mean, shallow and undeserving Having five sisters of my own, I really did not identify with any of the characters or relationships in the book Eventually each sister just got on my nerves I could see the ending from a mile away The book was packed with gimmicks.Relationships between sisters can be multi [...]


  28. I read this on a whim without even bothering to read the blurb in its entirety A pretty cover gets me all the time well, that and the continuous marketing The farthest I got into said blurb was that the characters had been named after some of Shakespeare s female characters From this I mistakenly deduced that WS would be a composite modern retelling of something NOT Sometimes, I m such a doof This could not be farther from that To be frank it is almost as if these women were meant to live the li [...]


  29. Predictable plot and predictable characters Three sisters sterotyped by birth order the bossy eldest sister, the slutty, attention seeking middle sister and the irresponsible youngest All returning to live at home using the excuse to care for their mother who has breast cancer But these three self centered 30 somethings are really just trying to avoid making adult decisions or facing the consequences of their poor decision making The eldest is so terrifed of change that she is using her mother s [...]
