Perhaps I relate too well to these characters. Perrotta's treatise on suburban angst is almost painful. Some characters are a bit two-dimensional for my taste, but most are well drawn and the story rings true. The author's use of Madame Bovary didn't strike me as nearly as effective as Cathleen Schine's in She Is Me, but I guess that makes me a bit petty. Humor, some satirical, throughout makes this an enjoyable read.
