Peter Hedges newest book The Heights, is rather strange, but addicting. He calls it a human comedy. I was so curious about how Hedges would end things, that I read it every second I got. Each character, (mostly married couple, Tim and Kate) told a portion of the story. I like it when characters have their own personal voice. Tim and Kate do not live extraordinary lives. Kate is a stay at home mom, raising their two boys. Tim is a teacher. Eventually Kate gets a great job offer and takes it so Tim takes the role as stay at home dad, while finishing his dissertation. Through the story our main characters are forced to prove their character and their love for each other. Just because you may not be rich, travel the world and live an extraordinary life, does not mean your life is not interesting. Tom and Kate are a great example of this.
The ending will definitely make you wonder.
