free read Mr Bridge 106 S classics during their author's lifetime With their shared ability to capture the manners and s of the American upper middle class Connell has done for the late thirties what Sinclair Lewis did for the twenties. I prefer to give Mr Bridge 45 stars since I didn t think that it uite measured up to Mrs Bridge although it s still worth reading after Mrs Bridge The vignette style of both books is something that I seldom see and love Just like Mrs Bridge this book is not plot driven Nothing major happens Both books are subtle and heartwarming Both will remain with me Some may not like Mr Bridge I prefer to not judge him too harshly He was a man of his time in the Midwest I prefer to look at his positive side He loved his family and was traditional
