To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Similar to the author's other books, this is the perfect distraction. Modern life with all it's crazy permutations still has the basic needs - friends, food, love - and we see how the characters resolve life's complications. Perfect read for the beach or a long airplane ride.
This is one of those books that you want to curl up in a chair with and let the noises around you disappear. I enjoyed this book and found that it ended way to quickly. Another hundred pages would have been great. if you are looking for a wonderful writer, a great light read and a smile are the end of a book then this is one of them. I have been a fan of Ms. Weiner's books since the word go and hope that others will also enjoy her literary works.
I stuck with this till the end, waiting to get connected, like in her previous books. So many deaths, so many adults acting like runaway children. Even the kids weren’t very likable. If this book’s purpose was to help Americans redefine marriage and family, it failed. Instead it painted a bleak picture of lives lived with singular happiness as their goal. That tends to leave many suffering people in its wake. Hope this is the last Jennifer Weiner book that leaves me wishing for so much more.
