Book Review: Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

Little Fires Everywhere Book CoverLittle Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

This is one of those “can’t-put-it-down” type of books. Whether it be a huge question answered or dramatic, life-altering events for the characters, Ng does an amazing job at keeping the reader engaged and wanting more. The book is filled with the right amount of mystery and suspense.

This book reveals the importance of privacy and the issues that can arise when people from different socioeconomic backgrounds intermingle. All of this is explored through the delicate, complicated journey of motherhood.

At first, I thought this book may not appeal to me since I am not a mother myself. But, this was not a condition that affected my thorough enjoyment while reading this book.

My only critique would be that it ends with so many question marks. I realize sometimes authors do this on purpose, but that is not my style. My own imagination just can’t come up with one, solid ending that’s satisfying to me. I just really need to be told the answers and what happens in the end!

How do others feel about books that end with so many unanswered questions?
