Fates and Furies; Lauren Groff

The story of Lotto and Mathilde, two beautiful 22 years olds who get married two weeks after meeting each other.  The story of their decades long marriage told from their two vastly different perspectives. A finalist for this years National Book Award it has received rave reviews.  An interesting story and charachters, well written, but a little difficult to read at times I thought.
