I have never come across a book that destroys the beauty of figurative language as this one does. The plot is utterly predictable and certain sections are filled with stereotypes, including racial ones. This leads me to believe that the author has a low intellectual level or may just be ignorant. The main character was so weak and unbelievable and the most annoying thing was the metaphors, similes, and other figurative language on nearly EVERY SINGLE LINE. And they didn't work either! I don't understand why the author thought this book would be phenomenal. This topic is way overdone and there seems to be nothing new beneath the literary sun. I highly dislike this book and wouldn't recommend it for a good read.

This is a poorly written story about a very stupid (though thank heavens fictional)woman. What a disappointment. With all the hype about Quindlen and this book I expected at the very least a decent read. Just a big pointless waste of time.
