Who Do You Love: A Novel Hardcover – Import, 11 August 2015
"Readers will simultaneously want to savor and devour Weiner’s latest... With her well-known humor and charm, she conveys the essence of first love, particularly the adage that true love never dies. Complete with a riveting, realistic recounting of 9/11 and a plot twist that will make your jaw drop, Weiner’s brilliantly written novel will capture your heart." (Library Journal (starred review))
“Weiner’s latest is pure romance and utterly heart tugging, showcasing her ability to write characters that readers will instantly connect with, flaws and all. There is a special delight here in getting to know Rachel and Andy from childhood to adulthood, and readers will find themselves laughing, crying, and hoping right along with the pair.” (Booklist (starred review))
"Overwhelmingly this is an affecting novel about how people carry the heavy burdens that came with their lives -- and how they set them down so they can goon... Weiner draws her characters with empathy and nuance. We take the 30-year journey with them, and root for them along the way." (The Philadelphia Inquirer)
"Weiner (All Fall Down) tugs at the heartstrings with her latest tale of angst and love. Weiner's achingly real characters will keep readers engaged all the way through." (Publisher's Weekly)
"Readers will laugh, cry and find themselves caught up in the story, as Weiner explores the idea: 'Do soul mates really exist?' Weiner brings the characters to life with intricate details...It's a story about love gained and lost, and love eternal." (Associated Press)
“A tale of love against the odds...Weiner's latest is a summer heart-warmer." (People)
"It’s The Fault in Our Stars all grown-up: Two kids meet in an ER, cross paths later—and don’t die. Thank you, book gods.” (Glamour)
“The author of In Her Shoes gives you all the feels. About two kids who meet in an unexpected way...and continue to do so throughout their lives. It’s like One Day meets 'When Harry Met Sally' meets your new beach read.” (TheSkimm)
"This is Weiner's first-ever straightforward love story, centering on two characters,Rachel and Andy, who meet as children in the hospital waiting room. The book chronicles their journey through adulthood, as they determine whether they're soul mates despite wildly different backgrounds: Rachel, from a wealthy family and born with a congenital heart defect; and Andy, from a poor neighborhood in Philadelphia with dreams of running in the Olympics."

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
This book, in my opinion has failed on both the above mentioned counts. The plot was weird to start with and I was waiting to see how she fleshes it out; but sadly what a disappointment! Neither of characters is interesting or inspiring. Andrew Landis' character was built up well but I never could
" get" why needed to do drugs!!
Anyways, not worth reading: that's my summary.

Who Do You Love continues to contain that strong woman, and writes from several perspectives. I enjoyed the passing of time, and the highs and low that the characters follow though the book.
If anything this feels a little bit more 'grown-up' than Weiner's previous books but it continues to be a pleasure to read and is a complete page turner.
I will be ready to read the next book Weiner publishes and hope its as enjoyable as this one.
