I recently listened to MODERN LOVERS by Emma Straub on audio. It was light and entertaining but had enough substance to keep me interested. In the audio version, the voices were clear, distinct, and easy to follow. I was able to dive right into this book from the beginning. It's about two couples who attended to college together. They now live in a hip neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY where they're raising their children. As former college bandmates, they have a colorful past. Some of these issues resurface disrupting their comfortable family life. In a touching and sometimes funny way, they face the universal struggles of life. Fighting through a mid-life crisis or raising teenagers is not easy. Add losing oneself within a marriage and financial woes to the story, and you have a lot to examine. The characters are likable and relatable. And there are plenty of opportunities to get to know them. It was a great read, and I look forward to more from this author.Back.
