There was once a great TV show about "nothing" -- Seinfeld. This book was essentially about "nothing" and while it kept my attention for the most part, I really cannot recommend it. Yes, it was very well written, but the content- everyday life of an everyday family - IMHO it was just not novel-worthy. I wanted to scream in frustration when, towards the end of the book where it SHOULD BE wrapping up, she starts the whole mostly boring story AGAIN from a different person's point of view.I had to skip over that. No way was I reading all that again, even from a different perspective. Maybe I should have read some reviews BEFORE I started to read it... but I wanted to form my own opinions, and that I have done. And they are not good.
Super read. Loved this book. Made me laugh, made me cry. Nostalgic for me. Reminder of the way we were raised years ago. Great story..
