Book Review of Little Fires Everywhere

Little Fires Everywhere

This is still by far one of my favorite books. I found myself doing exactly what I should be doing when reading a good book - reflecting on my own mindset, judgements, thoughts, and ideas. The book is extremely well written and easily transitions through time and across the families. It provides a wonderful glimpse into the complexity of humanity and our actions and outcomes. It is a book about being a woman, a mother, a person in society and how we use our own experiences to judge and assume the experiences of others. Ultimately how privilege can define us, be perversely used by individuals, and how we choose to let it be understood in our lives. I could not put the book down.
