Fun and light entertainment. Quick and easy read. Very enjoyable.
Sassy, funny, great characters. I love all of her novels.
Wonderful book by wonderful author.
This was a lively story with good character development, and I thoroughly enjoyed it, as I have all of Elinor Lipman's books.
A wonderful read for a sunny summer day! I couldn't put this one day!
A pleasant, lively read centered on romantic intrigue and misunderstandings in a small college town.
Loved it! The author has great style!
The author who has singlehandedly revived the art of screwball comedy is back with a delightful novel about living in the '90s. Set in Harrow, Massachussetts, where "quality of life" is measured in cappucino machines, poetry readings and bike paths, The Way Men Act is about friendship, snobbery, and getting lucky in love after giving up hope.
Continuing her deft exploration of contemporary social mores, Lipman focuses on the unmarried thirtysomething crowd. Melinda LeBlanc has returned to her New England hometown after failing to get an education or a husband in California. Observing and participating in the coupling and uncoupling of friends, relatives, and others, Melinda tries to understand the nature of attraction between men and women in order to achieve her own happy ending. Putting a wicked 1990s spin on the game of courtship, Lipman comes up with a winner--a wry, witty, fond look at decent people attempting to make connections with each other. This will gain new fans for the author as well as pleasing the old. Recommended for most fiction collections. BOMC selection.
