This Is Where I Leave You Jonathan Tropper Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

A riotously funny, emotionally raw New York Times bestselling novel about love, marriage, divorce, family, and the ties that bind—whether we like it or not.

The death of Judd Foxman’s father marks the first time that the entire Foxman clan has congregated in years. There is, however, one conspicuous absence: Judd's wife, Jen, whose affair with his radio- shock-jock boss has recently become painfully public. Simultaneously mourning the demise of his father and his marriage, Judd joins his dysfunctional family as they reluctantly sit shiva and spend seven days and nights under the same roof. The week quickly spins out of control as longstanding grudges resurface, secrets are revealed and old passions are reawakened. Then Jen delivers the clincher: she's pregnant...

“Often sidesplitting, mostly heartbreaking...[Tropper is] a more sincere, insightful version of Nick Hornby, that other master of male psyche.”—USA Today

User reviews about this book

  • Two Chapters were More Than Enough

    By tuppenz
    I felt this book could have been written by a naughty twelve year old. The humor is juvenile and tiresome. I expected so much more after reading some of the reviews.
  • This is where I leave you....Jonathan Tropper

  • Decent read

    By Boobookitty1369
    Decent read, complex characters however, we not fully fleshed out. Ending leaves something to be desired.
  • Best book ever

    Best book in the whole world
  • A fun read

    By BPF72
    This was a fun read and I enjoyed the way the story was told. I could've done without all the sex scenes but that's just me. I would recommend this book.

    Love a book that can make u laugh out loud!
  • Not a bad read...

    By JamieTrude
    Really see why this was made into a movie. It had some good laughs and was a quick read. Not a classic, but worth three stars from an entertainment perspective.
  • This is where I leave you.

    By gary solomons
    Quite simply the funniest book I have ever read. When you sit alone in a room and are laughing out loud, you are either a certifiable lunatic or in the midst of a world full of flawed,at times awful but always hilarious characters. Read and enjoy
  • Love, love, love it!!!!

    This book was terrific! I could not put it down!! I can't wait to see the movie.
  • This is Where I Leave a Five Star Review

    One of my favourite books. JT has a similar gift to David Sedaris in finding the humour in the ordinary and through writing about it makes it extraordinary. This movie is the one (other than Hobbit) that I have anticipated most. If you have not read this book, READ IT
