Every once in a while it's fun to read a book like this -- a book that's clever and entertaining and doesn't take much concentration. I've never read anything buy Elinor Lipman before but I'll keep her on my "authors to read" list because I have a feeling her other books will be clever and entertaining as well. The characters in this somewhat fluffy little novel (should I dare to call it "chick lit") are engaging and quirky -- even poor Alice Thrift herself who could be a poster child for a brainy female nerd, completely clue-less about just about everything that has to do with getting along with people. The plot itself seemed just a tad improbably to me - but who cares with this kind of a book? It was interesting enough to keep me reading, especially since it didn't take that long to get to the end. All along I had my suspicions about that sleezy character, Ray. And so I wasn't surprised when he ended up being such a jerk!
