    The movie adaptation of this book was on TV recently which reminded me that I had read this book quite some time ago Little Children focuses on couples in their thirties living in a quiet Boston suburb where nothing really happens One summer all of that changes when a convicted pedophile moves into the neighborhood.Sarah and Richard Sarah was once a radical feminist She never thought she would be where she is or who she is today a common housewife Her husband, Richard s

    After all, what was adult life but one moment of weakness piled on top of another Most people just fell in line like obedient little children, doing exactly what society expected of them at any given moment, all the while pretending that they d actually made some sort of choice Tom Perrotta, Little ChildrenWhat happens when your bored and disillusioned When the flatness of the days mold themselves into your soul and you are not SAD just indifferent And you think is this all th

    Tom Perrotta is usually very fun to read I m pretty sure I ve read all his books, and I typically polish them off meaning I read them, not eat them you should not eat books within the day, which for me is impressive A dinette set could finish a marathon with time to spare well before I complete a book, but Perrotta s voice is easygoing and funny, and a master at pacing if you ask me, so I happily breeze right through But Little Children , for which he has arguably received the most a

    Find all of my reviews at case you haven t seen me brag about it before are unaware, I work a couple of blocks away from this beauty That s just the parking garage So I can go check out books conveniently during my lunch hour There s also the porny library up in the burbs that gives me the hookup on all of my scientific research projects Since Fall has finally fallen and the temps are no longer in the bazillions I ve taken it u Find all of my reviews at case you haven t seen me brag about i

    Tom Perrotta appeared in my library s Who Writes Like file when I entered Richard Russo s name Personally, I don t see the resemblance Perrotta has none of Russo s wonderfully wry wit nevertheless Little Children was a worthwhile albiet quick read Yes, this is a satire but not a laugh out loud one for me Infidelity, a knicker sniffing husband, a convicted child molester, an unfulfilled housewife, a retired cop with a penchant for violence, but not too much actually about the little children Tom Pe

    This has got to be the first time in my entire life that I thought the movie version of something was better than the book Yes, I saw the movie first, and perhaps that influenced me But, man, Tom Perrotta is a crappy writer I felt like he was just punching a clock here so much of the writing was dull, cliched, and lifeless Not only that, the movie managed to create complexity in the characters where the book did not For instance, the movie actually managed to make me feel sorry for a child This has got t

    A character study of regretful adults All reverting back to childhood with their desires and deeds What do you do when you are unhappy with the choices you have made up to this point in your life You seek an escape That is what this novel is about One of my recurring complaints about books in general is product placement Ignoring my anti consumerist attitude this was a good read The ending was perfect.

    Perrotta got it just right in this expertly written examination of suburban ennui and disillusionment Little Children focuses on some young married with children couples and how they interact with each other, in both private and public ways It s sometimes uncomfortable and a touch sad, and that s what makes it so great there s real truth here Scenes at a public pool work especially well to highlight the suburbanness of these characters lives Anyone who s ever wondered, This is it when Perrotta got it just right in thi

    4.5 stars Incredible I really loved it.Essentially, this is a very cynical book that explores the various forms selfishness can take through the viewpoints of several deeply flawed characters living in suburbia If you don t count the measly 5% I read the night I started this one, then I read it in one day, not wanting to put it down Apparently there is a movie based on it that I need to check out now Loved this one and think it is a book that begs to be discussed in a group But be warned 4.5 stars Incredible I really loved i

    Perrotta has written a caustically funny satire of thirty something suburban American life that we laugh aloud even as we see ourselves and our faults unerringly displayed Even with his opening salvo descriptions of the mothers at the playground discussing their children, other mothers children, their husbands, their sexual habits or not one cannot help but think this is one author who listens and can make a joke of even the most painful circumstance No matter how bad or boring things get Perrotta has written a caustically funny sa
