This would be a hard book to recommend to someone. A statement in the book by one of the charactesr in the book seems to sum up my recommendation.. He makes a statement referring to one of the main character's (an author) books, "He finished it in one sitting--it was pretty light--and getting up he tossed it on the table and thought, 'Four people bothering each other. Who cares?" Having said that, I have to admit it did impact me in some ways. The author subtly portrays the transitions into the characters lives and how they deal with/accept them. Unfortunately it took the last few chapters to really hammer this message home. Sadly, I can see many abandoning the book before getting to this point.
