More Than It Hurts You Reviews
"The stereotypes are intentionally heavy-handed ... But the heart of the story - the unraveling of Josh's life and the steady erosion of his faith that ignorance can be a virtue and happiness a choice - is riveting." - Publishers Weekly.
"The narrative switches from medical to psychological to courtroom drama as each character is gradually forced to face his or her own reality. Highly recommended." - Library Journal.
"This unpleasant medical mystery cum courtroom drama cum mother-from-hell novel relies on a flat third-person narrator who reports events rather than animating them." - Kirkus Reviews.
"This book is harrowing, hurtling, heartbreaking andmore than anything devastatingly accurate. Darin Strauss (a novelist whose talents sometimes seem limitless to me) has created characters whose complexities and dark motivationsthough they are always hidden from each other, and even sometimes from themselvesare never hidden from their author. This is a brilliant, sharp, suspenseful novel, impossible to turn your gaze from." - Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love.
