    The End of the Point PDF/EPUB É End of the eBook ì PDF/EPUB ar1web.co point kindle, The End ebok, of the free, End of the mobile, The End of the Point ePUBThis novel is inaccurately titled it should have been entitled What is the Point? I hung in there and finished the book but it was somewhat of a slog through spring mud After reading the early sections of the book I thought that it was going to be a multi voiced view of a beloved summer destination as seen through the eyes of several family members It started out that way but then Graver abandons the really compelling and likable characters leaving us with the shrill harsh self centered and self involved I found myself wondering what she was trying to do in this novel Her focus just wasn't there for me I did not find her descriptions of 'Ashaunt' meant to be Cape Cod? particularly arresting And what is her beef with Framingham State? Her dreary

    The End of the Point PDF/EPUB É End of the eBook ì PDF/EPUB ar1web.co point kindle, The End ebok, of the free, End of the mobile, The End of the Point ePUBThis novel satisfied my New England Beach House fetish and love of intricate characters covering the long established Porter family tradition of summering on Ashaunt Point in Massachusetts It begins in 1942 from the point of view of Bea the Scottish nanny to the youngest daughter Jane as she makes a difficult choice about her future The book then jumps ahead five years to the oldest daughter Helen attending college in Switzerland This section is told in diaries and letters not my favorite style but effective to show how Helen is beginning to think about what she loves and wants to

    The End of the Point PDF/EPUB É End of the eBook ì PDF/EPUB ar1web.co point kindle, The End ebok, of the free, End of the mobile, The End of the Point ePUBA multi generational story of a wealthy New Jersey family with a summer house in Massachusetts at the end of the point The writing was satisfactory and the first section of the book about the family during World War II was interesting The character Bea a Scottish woman who worked for the family as nanny is a delightful character and her story intrigued me Unfortunately as the story jumped forward to the 50's the 70's and finally the late 1990's the focus shifted to other characters who were uninteresting whiny and tiresome There seemed to be little point to the story other than the expected everyone likes to come back to the summerhouse on the point
