Well written, but absolutely depressing.

I enjoyed the way the "forces of love" were very clearly demonstrated and how the results of the different loves were very clear and easy to understand. Bloom didn't try to obscure meaning to make the reader think too hard, which is both numbing and entertaining. I'm trying to come up with positive things to say about this book, but I didn't like it that much.

I loved this book... like all Bloom books you identify with every single character and finish the book seeing bits of yourself in all the characters.

Just starting reading Amy Bloom. I enjoyed the story and hope to read more of her soon. The story is a little choppy but all in all a good read.
