Despite 'Big Brother' finishing on a sad note and dealing with sensitive issues like eating disorders and family disputes it is still a lighthearted story than her bestselling novel 'We Need To Talk About Kevin' Shriver managed to pull off a enjoyable novel without abandoning the serious element of her writing In between the drama and humour she writes intelligently about harsh realities in a way that can have a profound sense of realization on the reader And yes her broad vocabulary which some readers are ambivalent towards features on almost every page of the book The only criticism I have is for the twist near the end It was cheap and contrived and come to think of it the story could still have had the same ending and impact without the twist

I will read anything that Shriver writes I am completely tuned in to her sensibility She always picks topics and themes that other authors tend to ignore or who will write about sensationally Shriver does not shy away from politicizing or making bold statements but she does so in such a matter of fact specific yet humanizing that her books don't feel sensational That she also takes her stories from her own experiences helps that along I felt Pandora's revulsion when she picks her brother up from the airport I felt Pandora's conflict between doing what was right for her brother at times at great sacrifice to her family and it made perfect sense that the lengths to whcih she went to save her brother both failed and view spoilerwere a total fantasy on her part hide spoiler

If you have not read Shriver before then start with this her 2013 novel Big Brother Shriver seems to be less acerbic than she has in her previous novelsless outrage and shock are dealt by the writer's hand here Telephone calls which come in the middle of the night rarely are for good news And when Pandora is woken with a call about her brother Edison the same is true Pandora a successful business owner and Edison a talented jazz pianist have always been close They have grown up in the limelight of their father Travis Appaloosa's successful television series and drawn even closer after their mother dies when Pandora is 13 Edison is now a talented jazz musician in New York and Pandora's brainchild is the highly successful made to order Baby Monotonous 'doll' company But during the phone call Pandora learns that Edison is broke and needs a place to stay She soon finds out that he is also no longer the Jeff Bridges lookalike that he once was so she is determined to help him shed some of his excess 200lbs Pandora puts her marriage on hold and moves into an apartment with her brother and becomes his weight loss coach What follows is by turns sad and uplifting funny and refreshingIn Big Brother Shriver takes a good hard look at the lives of children of television stars modern society's fixation with the 'body beautiful' and gives some startling weight loss facts This is a novel about the morbidly obese and it is the anonymity of the overweight and obese that for me makes this so sad Morbidly obese people are not pitiful they are human but they are pilloried whether we like to admit it or not Eually this novel is about the love between siblings; a bond which goes much deeper than many children without siblings can understand “We cover for you we lie for you we take the heat for you We clean up your messes and mollify our parents for you We never fail to come across with undying adoration whether or not you deserve it and we can't take our lives as seriously as yours” It is rare to have a hero like Edison but for me he is a hero It is not often you find a male character imbibed with such handicap such loss in his life as you find here It is how he owns and confronts to his problems which make him steal into my heart In time this may become my most favorite Shriver novel; she is not assailing me with politic vitriol nor disturbing me with harrowing parenting stories And this is written about a subject Shriver knows only too well; it is widely documented that Shriver's brother Greg was morbidly obese although she refutes that Big Brother is biographical This is one of the very rare novels which made me cry I'd never imagined the social issues which obese people face But what I learned most from Big Brother; next time you see an obese or very overweight person do not look away – meet their eyes and acknowledge them like you mean it after all they are still a human being 45★Reading I found interesting regarding Shriver and her brother Greg 's newest novel is The Mandibles A Family 2029–2047 published June 2016
