The novel is, in short, about a bunch of thirty-something parents, none of whom are happy in their marriages, but who are all sticking it out for one reason or another. Two of the characters begin an affair, filling a void for each other that was sorely needed to be filled. There really are three or four separate stories or lives in here that all intertwine in some way, and it all comes together, literally and figuratively at the end.

And I was with them right until the ending. And then out of left field, the deux es machina to end all, the random revelations and self-realizations that just suck away any hope I had for an ending that made sense.
