This is one of those books that are nearly impossible to review because nothing I say will do it justice so I will begin withTHIS BOOK IS SIMPLY MAGNIFICENT.The crux of this story is Caroline Louise Walker s writing Period This is among the best prose from a debut author that I have seen in some time Walker has woven an intricate plot featuring a complex and utterly engrossing protagonist, Dr Robert Hart.Robert suspects his wife is cheating and he sets on a paranoid course of self destruction The lengths he goes to in order to satisfy his own suspicions while desperately trying to hold together his house of cards family is disquieting at best The beautiful things that grow from decay can make it awfully hard to leave the garden This is a subtle story, told almost entirely in the mind of Robert Walker has written this character with such acuity I felt like I was on the inside of him looking out No longer a spectator, I found myself seeing life through Robert s eyes This isn t a thriller so much as it is a study of character s So, if the stereotypical twister is what you re anticipating then I suspect that you, like myself, will be bowled over by the ability of masterful storytelling combined with an insidio

Recognized as MAN OF THE YEAR in his community, Dr Robert Hart lives the good life, has a hot wife.who flaunts her stuff, a 20 year old son Jonah from his first marriage who comes to stay as well as his friend Nick who resides in the guest house.

But, MAN OF THE YEAR Dr Hart is not perfect by any means, nor is his family, or any of his friends not even his office manager.

This was a tough one for me because I had a really hard time getting through the first half since I hated the primary narrator Robert so much So I read the reviews on Goodreads, which were pretty glowing, and thus I persevered I li
Dark, compelling, engrossing I started reading this book and was absolutely captivated by the characters.It opens up with a celebration, an event honoring Robert Hart, M.D for his contributions to the community he lives in, he has been named MAN OF THE YEAR His son Jonah and the son s best friend Nick are spending the summer with Dr Hart and his wife, but soon Dr Hart starts feeling uncomfortable by the looks twenty years old Nick is exchanging with his beautiful wife.The story is narrated by different characters and this is the strength of the novel, the characters well drawn voices What happens as the story progresses is enthralling, at some point it was like watching a train
3 3.5 STARS Man of the Year is a character study of one really unlikable fellow and his erratic response to the assumption that his wife is connecting in a sensual way with their son s best friend, Nick This will be a hit or miss for some folks, as Bobby is a SUPER unlikable character, but I found it kind of fun following along with
