Review: A Spool of Blue Thread

User Review  - Goodreads

I got half way through this book and couldn't continue. Where is the plot, purpose and story in the book? It's like an elementary school student wrote it with " he said and she did" through the entire ... Read full review

I finished in the sense I closed the cover at about page 80 and decided I had better things to do. I know it has been well received and reviewed by most...but I am in agreement with the reviewer who said it was named "spool of thread" because it just went on and on. Read full review

Nothing happened in the entire first chapter of this book, except a phone call in which the son announced he was gay. It is not my cup of tea. I put it down without reading further. Read full review

Sadly I could not finish this book. I could barely START it. I've always been a fan of Anne Tyler's work but these characters were not the least bit interesting -to me, that is. Read full review
