We Only Know So Much - Elizabeth Crane It takes a little time to get used to the writing style of this book. It has a first-person plural omniscient narrator (I had to look that up), with short, choppy, conversational sentences or half-sentences that might start with, "Okay, so..." This style of narration works for the book, though, which is an insightful look at six members of a family, ages 9 to 98. While they weren't necessarily likeable, there was never a character that I didn't want to revisit as the short chapters progressed. There are a few major events here and there, but it's mostly character analysis, with some especially interesting insights into grieving and memory loss.This review is based on an ARC that I received through the First Reads program.
