i love this book laugh myself silly
It is a fun premise and I had high hopes, but the characters' voices were so discombobulating and I was halfway through the book before I realized they weren't in their fifties. I sincerely thought they were all much older than they were supposed to be and it made me so irritable throughout the rest that it seriously colored my appreciation of an otherwise well-crafted story. Every one of the main characters sound as if they are playing dress up in their parents' clothes and voices. If the author wanted to write a story about fifty year-olds, she should have done so. It would have been fantastically amusing and even more interesting to see this kind of circumstance played out among the baby-boomer set. I'm a Gen-Xer and I have no prejudice against reading about couples in their mid to later years, but you can't slap a mid-twenties tag on a fifty year-old character and have it read as anything other than... well, wrong. I so much liked the premise and the crafting of the story itself, though, that I will try another from this author before I give up on her entirely.
Romantic Comedy about a woman that went to bed a brunette and woke up as a blonde due to an experimental drug she was taking. Very funny book.
