Jonathan, lonely, introspective, and unsure of himself; and Bobby, hip, dark, and inarticulate. In New York after college, Bobby moves in with Jonathan and his roommate, Clare, a veteran of the city's erotic wars. Bobby and Clare fall in love, scuttling the plans of Jonathan, who is gay, to father Clare's child. Then, when Clare and Bobby have a baby, the three move to a small house upstate to raise "their" child together and, with an odd friend, Alice, create a new kind of family. A Home at the End of the World masterfully depicts the charged, fragile relationships of urban life today.… (más)

Not really a review.

This book was picked for me in a challenge. I began to read, got about 15% in, but didn't finish - too many things started happening all at once, GRamazon one of them (what a waste of time, but it totally sucked me in) However I did find time to watch a movie based on the book. Not sure if I can write a full-blown book review based on a movie, but I would want to write something when I put my thoughts together, hopefully within a day or two.

All I have to say right now that it's great story, I would watch the movie again and will definitely finish the book.

5 stars for the movie.

This is not my usual type of book to read.. I am more inclined toward historical fiction, true crime, Stephen King inspired horror/sci-fi, history and biographies, but I am so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone to try a more contemporary read.
Heart-warming and heart- breaking are the two best descriptions of this book. I gave it 4 stars. Each chapter is narrated by a different character. Some chapters are better than others, some characters are better developed than others. Also, my main grievance is that one main character, Ned, is silent. I would like to hear his voice in the story because he was so influential on the character of Alice, Jonathan and Bobby.
Highly recommended for the beautiful writing alone! It was so readable! But the story was engaging from start to finish.
One thing I need to comment on is the title. In the book "Lady Chatterley's Lover" which I read last month, when the two lovers were contemplating running away they lamented that "there is no end of the earth" in the modern age. Little did they know that upstate New York could be considered, at the end of the 20th century as the "End of the World". ( )

This story would have been much better if each character was actually their own narrator. Each character told things from their own view point but there was no differentiation in tone, language or anything to make the characters unique. I often had to go back to the beginning of the chapter because i forgot who's perspective i was reading from.

I have no problems with bittersweet stories or endings, but it seemed like no one in this story was EVER happy and it made this book almost a chore to get through because there were no highs to offset the lows, or to make the lows matter. ( )

I love Michael Cunningham. [b:The Hours|11899|The Hours|Michael Cunningham|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1327871525s/11899.jpg|2245431] is one of my most beloved novels. However, I loathed this book. There wasn't a single likable character and the story-line was beyond boring. I feel betrayed... I wanted to love this book but I found it impossible to enjoy. ( )

The Poem that Took the Place of a Mountain - There it was, word for word, The poem that took the place of a mountain. He breathed in its oxygen, even when the book lay turned in the dust of his table. It reminded him how he had needed a place to go to in his own direction, how he had recomposed the pines, shifted the rocks and picked his way among clouds, for the outlook that would be right, where he would be complete in an unexplained completion: The exact rock wher ehis inexactnesses would discover, at last, the view toward which they had edged, where he could lie and, gazing down at the sea, recognize his unique and solitary home. Wallace Stevens
