This is by far one of the worst novels I have read. Very slow moving and meaningless. Made it through entire book but keep waiting for something to happen and considered not finishing it several times. Probably would have been better if not so long. Story line sounded interesting - a group of random normal individuals participate in a drug study prior to drugs FDA Approval. Book continues to discuss the participates lives together and also includes some random actions that really don't seem to fit with the storyline. Just found book very uninteresting.

Unlike the other reviewer, I enjoyed this book. It grabbed from the first page, read standing in the bookstore. I appreciated the humor and observations of all too human nature. Not great literature but a good, solid slice of life.
