As usual, Elizabeth Berg does not disappoint. An excellent read about all sorts of relationships.
Loved this as I am a fan of Elizabeth Berg in general. I enjoy the way she writes for women of "a certain age" of which I'm one. I would call it grey lit as opposed to chick lit!
She understands her characters and writes for them accordingly.
Interesting book,mail though I think I recall a similar plot from another author a few years ago. Berg's strength is writing characters, and this one has decent people in it. They seemed to be less developed than other books, however. While I don't think this was one of her best books, it was entertaining.
This book made we weary. The middle-age mother tended to have a histronic personality. I notice a lot of Berg's books are about middle-age people either divorced or headed that way. And always, always looking for love, most of the time in the wrong places. I guess if I could relate to her books I might enjoy them more.
Really really good! Made me start to question the kind of relationships people have today.
a real disappointment! Her earlier work was much better...
Slow moving unlike her previous novels.
Slow moving - great book for a car ride or beach - not sure why it made the New Yorks Best Seller list
Another disappointing novel from Berg. Too light & fluffy. Her earlier novels were much better, ie Open House and Joy School.
This is a well-written book about a family's journey through life. The characters are all flawed people, as is the case in most of Berg's books. A terrifying event spurs the main protagonists, a young woman and her divorced parents, to make decisions that they may not have made otherwise. The character are all true to themselves and the decisions make a sort of sense when you consider each person and their motivations. The power of love among the characters is evident as well. The story is a great one for discussion groups, as there are many issues involved.
