This book was captivating, like a very good soap opera. It’s funny, evokes a vivid picture of the people and locations, and has some drama. In some parts I needed to refresh my recollection of the relations between the massive families, and there is a genealogical chart at the front. Overall I greatly enjoyed reading it. The machinations of family members within their families, and across families often extended over years to acquire advantages. Might even go see the movie at some point, but will be glad I read the book first.
