Find all of my reviews at Stars Secrets are no fun for anyone Keep that in mind When my husband asked what I was reading about over the weekend the answer was simple Nothing He followed up that response with uh oh so it s a 1 Star book then I surprised him by saying no and here I am giving The Vacationers a solid 35 I still stand by this being about nothing when compared to most other books I read but I remember a certain television show which I still watch whenever presented the opportunity that was about nothing as well I m trying to figure out how this one even got on my TBR Did the Goodreads spam generator pop up put this on the feed awhile back I can t think of what else would have made me put my name on the library wait list aside from those subliminal messages Whatever the reason I somehow ended up with The Vacationers on the first weekend where it was in the 60s rather than during the summer when I probably should have read it due to the fact that I spend my free time ingesting baseball field dirt rather than soaking up the sun at a place like Mallorca Even though the timing was off I somehow still enjoyed this book from looking at the 314 general GR rating I probably read it wrong As I said nothing awesomely dramatic or monumental happens in this story but I still couldn t put it down What we have is the Post family s vacation Jim has been fired from his longtime magazine job for banging a co worker His wife Franny is left dealing with her feelings regarding this betrayal and also non refundable tickets Daughter Sylvia is counting down the minutes until she escapes to college especially since she s become a social pariah with her former friends due to a drunken make out session with nearly every boy in school Son Bobby has some financial woes he d like to discuss with the parents if the parents can stop judging his significantly older personal trainer girlfriend long enough to listen And poor Lawrence and Charles are trying to figure out if adopting a baby is the right thing to do when it seems dysfunction is inevitable at some point in timeSo there you have it A book that takes place over the course of two weeks that is simply a snapshot of the goings on during that time period This is most definitely not a book that will change your life and the characters are all pretty much unlikeable too If you know me that might explain

I confess to being utterly baffled by this book I m not referring to the book itself which had a minimal plot that was very easy to follow I m referring to the critical reaction to The Vacationers It had glowing reviews and seemed to be on every summer reading list After reading it I can only shake my head in wonder and ask why Mass hallucination Bribery All the critics were friends of the writer I don t know what else would explain this book being anointed this summer s must readThe writing was perfectly fine if nothing special but the story itself was so meh The plot was boring with the various storylines being mostly very well trod ground done better by other books Husband has cheated on wife who has kind of let herself go In turn she behaves like a shrew He feels bad and waits around to see if she ll forgive him Younger daughter is a surly virgin who hates everyone and thinks she ll be ugly forever Older son is a screw up living with an older woman he doesn t love so he cheats on her in order to end the relationshipThe book s only novel characters are Charles and Lawrence an older married gay couple who want to adopt a baby But they get the least amount of pages and even then the focus is on their having a kid That would be fine but its hardly explored nor is the idea of what marriage means to gay men how it affects them and their families how same sex marriage might change heterosexual marriage etc Those would be interesting topics to explore but instead Straub treats Charles like a heterosexual woman desperate to have a baby Yawn Carmen is also somewhat interesting but also gets short shrift I get that The Vacationers is about family dysfunction loving your family anyway etc but most of the characters are so unpleasant andor cliche and their stories so uninteresting that I didn t care what happened by the end If they were my family I certainly wouldn t want to spend any time with them As a reader I m baffled why critics think I d want to spend time with these boring unpleasant people I guess the other summer books must have been really bad
