Honestly leaving this book (literally just closed the kindle) a little conflicted. I thought it was incredibly well written, almost to a fault with the amount of nickel words that were thrown in there. I liked the timeline aspect and jumping through years but I think I got a bit lost post 2005 and could have used more dates to ground. It was also much more Jewish than I expected it to be which was a great surprise and if I ever go back and reread I would want to reflect on the more subtle Jewish elements that are probably on display but not as apparent when I was so engrossed on the story. 

SpoilerWhen the shooting happened, I was fully gripped. I do wish I had known to expect that going in but understand I'm not sensitive to spoilers. Somehow I knew Marx would die from when he got with Sadie but I guess I expected a video game death and not the long drawn out chapter. But that chapter was my favorite and I had to actively stop myself from continuing because it was 10:30 pm and I knew I'd stay up to read the next 1/4 of the book
