Attachments: A Novel
Attachments is a book that it is hard not to be captivated by. Its characters tell a wonderful story in which all their hearts become one. Dean Griffin is head of a private school where he finds himself treating the students much like his own children. He is caring and loving and genuinely takes an interest in their futures. Fast forward eighteen years and Griffin has had a stroke. His last words were asking for Piccolo and Goodman. It seems like an odd request at first; however, as the story unfolds, a family secret is slowly revealed. Sandy Piccolo, Laura Appleby, and Stewart Goodman, who were once stuck in one of the most heartbreaking love triangles, come together again to visit Griffin on his deathbed.
Attachments reveals everything from start to finish, alternating between past and present and using the book that Goodman wrote to narrate the story as well. The book is brilliantly written, with undertones of both happiness and sadness all swirled into one nostalgic ice cream cone. With its endearing characters and fascinating plot, it is a “must read” for those who love it when a story sticks will you long after you put the book down.
