Lindas Book Obsession Reviews “The Floating Feldmans” by Elyssa Friedland, Penguin Random House, July 23, 2019
Elyssa Friedland, Author of “The Floating Feldmans” has written a witty, entertaining,and emotional novel. The Genres for this story are Domestic Fiction, Humor, and Women’s Fiction. The author describes her dysfunctional cast of characters as complex, and complicated, each having their own set of problems and secrets.
Annette Feldman is going to be 70 and has decided that she wants the whole family to go on a cruise. The Feldmans don’t communicate well on the land, so you can imagine what will happen at sea. They all will need their life preservers, that is for sure!! Not only is there a lack of communication, but every Feldman also seems to have a secret.
There is a touch of satire, and I appreciate that the author discusses the importance of family, honesty, communication, emotional support and love. I recommend this amusing and thought-provoking story! Happy Reading!!
