Very well written. The whole book was about Erma's experiences as a wife, mother and homemaker. The book held me in stitches the whole time I read it. It is a wonderul hilarious book written by one of America's famous humorists. A very funny read!

This is a well written book about the friendship of two young girls growing up in Mumbai, India and how they get separated and their lives differ greatly - one to enter the sordid world of human prostitution and the other a life of relative comfort in Los Angeles, USA. Tara, one of the heroines leaves the US to return to Mumbai to find Mukta the other heroine. The story is well narrated and well plotted. Good Read.

The book was a bit slow in the beginning but it picked up quite nicely in the middle. Nice story telling going between the present and the past. Nice descriptions of orchards and fruit picking and Washington state scenery. Good read - the reader is kept in suspense until the very end.

this book deals with a music therapist and her partner and their struggle as homosexuals as well as trying to use frozen embryos to have babies. Very interesting to watch the legal drama between the two parties the ex-husband Max and the person with the embryos Zoe. Well written and realistic. A good read.
