A beautifully written examination of a marriage and a wife's decision to leave her author husband. Although the "twist" at the end is apparent early on, knowing that didn't detract from my enjoyment of the book. This might also be a good book-club book, leading to an in-depth discussion about ethics and how far one should go to help one's mate. Recommended.
I tried to read it but it bored me. It was just too wordy and took too much time to get to the point of the story, which I never got to.
Not chick lit despite the intriguing hot pink cover.
I wasn't sure about this book in the beginning. Somehow it overcomes your initial impressions that it's another middleage woman's quest to free herself from a long unsatisfying marriage. It catches your attention and you comes to a shocking conclusion.
Enjoyable ascerbic wit of Meg Wolitzer, filled with her type of engrossing, funny, humor and pathos. She is a one in a million author.
