Nuclear Family: a TragicomicNovel in Letters

Hilarious novel about a family just like yours.

Nuclear Family is a collection of letters and emails to Julie from her teenage years to her 30s from her loved ones. There are letters from her over serious father, her oversharing mother and her free-spirited sister. More unusual are letters from her boyfriend’s dog, her teenage Nordic Track and her IUD.

It took me about an hour to find this book funny. I think you have to be familiar with the characters first. However, after that I found myself frequently laughing out loud. I particularly liked the two very different grandmothers and the creepy peer of Julie’s father.

Overall, this is a short funny book about family that would be a good vacation read.

I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway but that has not impacted my review.
