The Weird Sisters Eleanor Brown read online review & book description:

This is the "delightful" (People) New York Times bestseller that's earned raves from Sarah Blake, Helen Simonson, and reviewers everywhere-the story of three sisters who love each other, but just don't happen to like each other very much...
Three sisters have returned to their childhood home, reuniting the eccentric Andreas family. Here, books are a passion (there is no problem a library card can't solve) and TV is something other people watch. Their father-a professor of Shakespeare who speaks almost exclusively in verse-named them after the Bard's heroines. It's a lot to live up to.

The sisters have a hard time communicating with their parents and their lovers, but especially with one another. What can the shy homebody eldest sister, the fast-living middle child, and the bohemian youngest sibling have in common? Only that none has found life to be what was expected; and now, faced with their parents' frailty and their own personal disappointments, not even a book can solve what ails them...

    Was disappointed and I was hoping for a better read. I found two of the main characters very annoying, so much so that I almost put it down a few times. I can't recommend.

    I kept waiting for it to get better but it never did. The characters are stereotypical & I knew exactly how their lives would play out in the end...perfect of course! Snore. Wish I never bought it.

    It's a pleasant read, nice story and a change of pace from more intense books. Once hooked you can't put it down....

    Loved this book. A fascinating story of three sisters....all very different, but also strangely alike. A knowledge of Shakespeare will add to the enjoyment of your reading. Looking for something else by this author.
  • Nothing more than a glorified romance novel

    I had very high hopes for this book, but found myself becoming more and more disappointed with each passing chapter. And the lines from Shakespeare that were peppered throughout the novel seemed like a desperate attempt to prove that it was more than a romance novel. (Don't be fooled: it's not.) After reading several chapters, it occurred to me that if these three daughters were real, they'd be too stupid to name a Shakespearean play beyond Romeo and Juliet, let alone commit entire sonnets to memory, no matter who their father was. On to the one-dimensional characters! Rose was neurotic, high strung and whiny. Of course, her fiancé is wonderful, everything you could ask for in a Danielle Steele knockoff. He's handsome, sweet, smart, loving, warm, caring...basically, he sounds like a complete pansy. And of course, he simply adores Rose, even though I wanted to punch her in the face. Cordelia was useless, a complete spoiled brat, with an amazing guy who shows up and doesn't have a problem that some other guy knocked her up. Awww, Part 2. Bean...I actually liked Bean. She was bitchy, self-centered, seriously flawed...and knew it. While Rose and Cordelia tried to excuse away their personality traits ("But I'm the oldest/youngest! It's always been this way! It's not my fault! Poor me!"), Bean realizes that she has no one to blame but herself. Good for you, babe. Own those demons. All in all, this book was a complete waste of my time.

    An engaging read, this book kept me satisfied without the bells and whistles one thinks they want in a book. I loved the use of "third person" voice of not one of the sisters, but all three. Unusual and appropriate to the book's whole concept. The voice of the Bard throughout was enchanting and lent a legitimacy to the author's own capable prose. Thank you for The Weird Sisters!
  • Great mechanics liked the book

    The book worked great. I could read it fine. The book itself (content) was fine. I would give it a "b" ergo the four stars. I think that anyone who would read this would find it enjoying.
