Find all of my reviews at Stars “Secrets are no fun for anyone Keep that in mind” When my husband asked what I was reading about over the weekend the answer was simple Nothing He followed up that response with “uh oh so it’s a 1 Star book then” I surprised him by saying no and here I am giving The Vacationers a solid 35 I still stand by this being about “nothing” when compared to most other books I read but I remember a certain television show which I still watch whenever presented the opportunity that was about nothing as well I’m trying to figure out how this one even got on my TBR Did the Goodreads spam generator pop up put this on the feed awhile back I can’t think of what else would have made me put my name on the library wait list aside from those subliminal messages Whatever the reason I somehow ended up with The Vacationers on the first weekend where it was in the 60s rather than during the summer when I probably should have read it due to the fact that I spend my free time ingesting baseball field dirt rather than soaking up the sun at a place like Mallorca Even though the timing was off I somehow still enjoyed this book from looking at the 314 general GR rating I probably read it wrong As I said nothing awesomely dramatic or monumental happens in this story but I still couldn’t put it down What we have is the Post family’s vacation Jim has been fired from his longtime magazine job for banging a co worker His wife Franny is left dealing with her feelings regarding this betrayal and also non refundable tickets Daughter Sylvia is counting down the minutes until she escapes to college especially since she’s become a social pariah with her former friends due to a drunken make out session with nearly every boy in school Son Bobby has some financial woes he’d like to discuss with the parents if the parents can stop judging his significantly older personal trainer girlfriend long enough to listen And poor Lawrence and Charles are trying to figure out if adopting a baby is the right thing to do when it seems dysfunction is inevitable at some point in timeSo there you have it A book that takes place over the course of two weeks that is simply a snapshot of the goings on during that time period This is most definitely not a book that will change your life and the characters are all pretty much unlikeable too If you know me that might explain why this worked for me when it failed for so many others shrug

I do not know why I kept reading this book It's basically a book about a family on vacation in MallorcaSome of the members have cheated outside their respective relationships at one time or another and all the resentmentsecrets finally come to light and not even in any exciting events They just talk about itThat's it On and on and on Mostly whiningNothing really happens in this bookit's like attending one big boring family reunion where you get seated beside your seventh cousin twice removed and all they do is drone on about a two week vacation and it feels like it takes them two weeks to describe itSomeone had to have been paid a great deal to write the glowing professional reviews I read of this book I should have read the Goodreads reviews first The storyline is slow the characters are unlikeable and the only excitement that really happens is the 18year old daughter losing her virginity to a 20 year old Mallorcan Bleh
