Reviews - What do customers think about One Whole & Perfect Day?

Delightful book  Aug 11, 2008
As another reviewer has noted, the ending of this book is not "realistic"...but that's perhaps one goal of the novel: Lily wants one whole and perfect day and she finally gets it in the end after a whole truckload of family dysfunction--a father who abandoned her even before she was born, an artsy-fartsy brother who can't stick to anything, a soft-hearted mother who relies on Lily to be the sensible one while she, a psychologist, rescues "lame-duck" elderly people whose families want a break from them, an apparently racist red-necked grandfather, and a grandmother with an imaginary friend! This is a delightful novel full of quirky characters and fine writing. All of the members of this extended family surprise each other in some way and have hidden aspects which briefly sparkle and shine forth. One does have to suspend one's disbelief to enjoy the novel perhaps, but if one does, the rewards are considerable. I think the book might be more appealing to older young adult females and women in general as it's character rather than plot-driven. This is one of the best written pieces of fiction I've read in some time. Reading it made me consider if I've ever had a whole and perfect day and what such a day would consist of for me.
Ending too pat  Nov 26, 2007
One Whole and Perfect Day is a pleasant story about a wish that Lily has that her dysfunctional family have "one whole and perfect day." Her grandmother is planning a party hoping to reconcile her grandmother and her brother. Her brother has a new Chinese girlfriend that no one has met. Her mother has promised not to bring home any more elderly people for the weekend, yet is tempted to break her promise. This story's main flaw is the happy ending that is too perfect and too coincidental to be real.
