I thought this book was a good, fresh idea, but the author's internal life got obnoxious about halfway through. Not nearly profound enough to carry off a whole novel. High marks for originality, lower marks overall for inability to keep it interesting.

I enjoyed this book. IT was a cute read of observations of her life and reaction to common things. It kept me amused.

Funny and interesting, this memoir by nobody you know chronicles the life of an ordinary person. Entries include such random (but somehow related and relevant) topics as "Rearranged Furniture", "Needlepoint", "Lollipop Tree", "Rejection", "Dry Cleaners", "Coffee, Stopping for", and "Uneasy Conversation". Good, easy, light read.

Amusing and creative book about the author's ordinary life. It's the kind of book you can pick up after having put it down for a while, and it doesn't matter. Actually, you don't even have to start at the beginning. Fun book.
