What a family.
We meet the Drumm brothers whose mother favored one over the other and was mostly worried about herself. She didn't even care to spend time with her grandchild because she was busy.
Will married Susan and was always having an affair.
Brian was the sympathetic, helpful brother.
Luke was a rock star and a bit useless.
All three brothers were jealous of each other and tried to outdo each other, do mean things to each other, and get each other in trouble even as adults.
OUR LITTLE CRUELTIES didn't really have a plot in my opinion. It discussed the lives of the brothers and their mother. The family is extremely dysfunctional.
I loved Ms. Nugent's other book, LYING IN WAIT, but this one dragged on for me. It actually was a struggle to keep reading, but I had to find out which brother was dead since the book carried on as if they all were alive. No guessing on who it is because it was well hidden.
As we make our way through the years and the lives of the brothers, we wait to hear who the two brothers are that are alive and which brother has been killed.
OUR LITTLE CRUELTIES has good descriptions of the characters and situations, but it was not a book that I enjoyed. 2/5
This book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
