The Interestings spans the lives of six friends from teenagers, who meet at an art camp, to middle aged adults, working to keep their friendships intact. The novel is definitely character driven, with a time changing plot that just works. I think the main ideas are success and friendship, and how one can threaten the other.
When I first began this novel, I thought it was a little slow, but shortly I became interested in each character. Though, from the tone, I knew nothing huge - no major plot point or twist- was going to happen, yet I still wanted to find out what happened next. Don't get me wrong, plenty of things happen, just not in the way of more traditionally plotted books.
So, was The Interestings interesting? Yes. (4/5)
