The Floating Feldmans

Sink or swimToo bad her kids didn’t get the memo Between the troublesome family secrets old sibling rivalries and her two teenage grandkids. 35 starsThis was a pretty enjoyable read about family members who all seem to be hiding some sort of secret from one another I do think it was a clever idea by the author to have most of the story take place on a cruise ship as it led to some interesting situations Annette Feldman decides she wants to do something special for her 70th birthday so she organizes a vacation on a cruise ship for her family So Annette her husband her daughter her son in law two grandkids her son and his girlfriend all climb aboard the ship some excited than others Hmm complicated family dynamics playing out in a confined space for a week I m sure nothing could go wrong wink winkThe story follows the different family members so you do get an opportunity to see things from each person s perspective I can t say I liked each person but at least there was nobody I outright hated which was a problem I had when reading the author s book The Intermission Now I wouldn t say this is the most memorable book I have read exploring family dynamics but it was decent Each person has their own issue they are dealing with but for the most part it is a light and easy readThank you to the First to Read program for the opportunity to read an advance digital copy I was under no obligation to post a review and all views expressed are my honest opinion Alternatives To Hitler under no obligation to post a review and all views expressed are my honest opinion

They’ve been ignoring–and learn that the people they once thought most likely to sink them are actually the ones who help them stay afloa. I initially started The Floating Feldmans while sitting poolside at home then as much as I was enjoying it had an epiphany and thought Wait I need to take this with me on my family cruise dad stepmom hubby two sons and daughter and read it because what could be perfect than that right It turns out that I have some really great ideas at times because reading this family drama set on a cruise ship while sailing the high seas was fantastic funAnnette Feldman is celebrating a milestone birthday she s turning seventy and to celebrate the momentous day she plans a family cruise for herself her husband daughter and her husband her son and his much younger girlfriend and two grandkids This is a family with a very complicated dynamic even before they re thrown together on a cruise a fact you immediately glean in the first couple of chapters Deep secrets and a lack of communication are at the core of their relationships and it s apparent that the Feldmans really know nothing about each other With that in mind what could possibly go wrong among all of them when they re stuck together in a relatively small crowded place for 5 days Speaking from someone who just disembarked from a cruise anything can and will happen and I don t have any big secrets from my familyElyssa Friedland tells the story through each of the vivid characters in the book so you get to know all of them as they tell their story There is Elise Annette s daughter who has a serious secret that will adversely affect her husband and son when they find out yet she has no idea her husband has his own secret Freddy the son has always been thought of just a stoner with no prospects yet his secret will shock his family Another big secret is the one being held by David Annette s husbandand then there are the grandkidsFriedland did such an excellent job bringing to life a uirky dysfunctional family The novel was humorous at times with snarky witty comments and dry humor Being on a cruise at the time I especially enjoyed how Friedland made cruises sound absolutely hellish I actually thought about jumping ship at one point while reading the bookNo matter how challenging the cruise or the situation what I loved about this book is it showed how relationships are ever evolving and how important forgiveness acceptance and love is within any relationship The Floating Feldmans is a clever insightful summer read that is perfect for a summer vacation or anytime Thank you Lauren Burnstein at Berkley Publishing for the gifted copy All opinions are my own
