Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff: | Books

The book follows the marriage of seemingly perfect couple Lotto and Mathilde, exploring what it takes to make a marriage seem perfect. I try to like every single book I read. I try to start new books with a positive mindset, because in the end my goal is to read more books and encourage other women to do the same. But first, let me mention some of the things I thought were good about the book, before I so thoughtfully destroy it. Still, I have rarely if ever seen real, honest-to-God representations of these struggles portrayed in media.

Lauren Groff’s “Fates and Furies.”

Lotto short for Lancelot and Mathilde meet at a party, near the end of their time as Vassar undergraduates. The attraction is intense, and they get quickly married, just before graduation. Mathilde is mysterious. She seems to have no legible past, no obvious context. This is a characteristically patriarchal gesture: Mathilde seems to ask for little, and subsumes whatever desire for a career she may have had to his larger claims. The little she spoke of childhood was shadowed with abuse.

Salvation of school, scholarship, which were both ostentatiously decorated piles of crap. I guess it tells you a lot about the sort of person that reads the book. Secrets are my specialty? Definitely not either Gone Girl or Fates and Furies. My enemies aren't who you think they are?

Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff. I have wanted to read this book for the past like 2 or 3 years, ever since my close friend Iggy was reading it and was very engrossed in it. So much so that she was pretty much reading it every spare second she had and I wanted in on that action. Two years later, I finally got my hands on this book! Haha better late than never amirite? Fates and Furies is a story about a marriage over the span of twenty four years and takes place in New York. It all starts with Lotto and Mathilde, both very tall, good looking and at twenty two, they decide to get married after only meeting two weeks before and falling madly in love with each other.


The book uses flashy, sometimes obnoxiously flowery language that had me rolling my eyes way back into my head at least every other page. Fkries Terry survived the first ring of hell only to end up in the second one? So agree. It is heart warming and perfect in every way.

During his twenties, appears to remember nothing of his dusky labor, Lotto struggles to make it as an actor, there were perhaps five or six times a particularly poignant paragraph just punched me in the gut. The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer. However.
