"I read Little Fires Everywhere in a single, breathless sitting." (Jodi Picoult)

“To say I love this book is an understatement. It’s a deep psychological mystery about the power of motherhood, the intensity of teenage love, and the danger of perfection. It moved me to tears.” (Reese Witherspoon)

“I am loving Little Fires Everywhere. Maybe my favorite novel I've read this year.” (John Green)

From the best-selling author of Everything I Never Told You, a riveting novel that traces the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and the enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives. 

In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is planned - from the layout of the winding roads to the colors of the houses to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules. 

Enter Mia Warren - an enigmatic artist and single mother - who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teenage daughter, Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons. Soon Mia and Pearl become more than tenants - all four Richardson children are drawn to the mother-daughter pair. But Mia carries with her a mysterious past and a disregard for the status quo that threatens to upend this carefully ordered community. 

When old family friends of the Richardsons attempt to adopt a Chinese American baby, a custody battle erupts that dramatically divides the town - and puts Mia and Elena on opposing sides. Suspicious of Mia and her motives, Elena is determined to uncover the secrets in Mia's past. But her obsession will come at unexpected and devastating costs. 

Little Fires Everywhere explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, and the ferocious pull of motherhood - and the danger of believing that following the rules can avert disaster.

Geschickte Perspektivwechsel, spannend verwoben

Wer The Corrections von Frenzen mochte, wird dieses Hörbuch lieben.
Spannend und poetisch beschrieben, bangt man mit den unterschiedlichsten Familienmitgliedern und Wahlverwandtschaften darum, ob sie das stille Glück der Zugehörigkeit finden werden, oder es verloren geben. Ein spannendes Buch über Liebe von Eltern zu Kindern, Wahlverwandtschaften, Stolz, Selbstverwirklichung und Emanzipation, und die Macht des moralischen Kompass.

Wunderbare Familiensaga, genau hingesehen

Was für eine wunderbare Erzählung! Mia ist zwar das äußere Zentrum der Geschichte, aber es geht um den mehr oder auch mal weniger respektvollen Umgang innerhalb einer Familie, die zu zerbrechen droht, obwohl die Lebensbedingungen perfekt für ein glückliches Leben miteinander scheinen. Nur der Ende kam mir zu abrupt - aber vielleicht gibt es eine Fortsetzung?

Amazing!

I really enjoyed this book, it was gripping right from the beginning and I always had a hard time to stop listening. The story is good and the way it's told, the voice and the choice of words.
