Lamott's got a very different writing style and this book took a long time to get rolling. It's a bit fragmented. When I started to envision myself sitting in Jessie's Cafe and listening to the different conversations, I started to enjoy the book alot more. Half way through the book it become more cohesions, the characters more real, and I couldn't stop reading.

If you want a traditional story with a well constructed and obvious plot, you'll be disappointed with this book.

I agree that this was not one of Lamotts better reads. It seemed scattered, I couldn't get involved with the characters. I still love Lamotts style, wit and humor.

I just can't get into this author. There ios something about her writing style that just doesn't work for me. I quit!!!! I couldn't even get through the first chapter and I usually give a book 3 chapters to pull me in.

This is an amazing little book that has such real characters.I have reread it several times.I rarely do this.But Anne LaMott obviously knows these characters in a very personal way.
