    The Good Life Disappointment

    Looking forward to this Novel, but disappointed, expecting the story to get better and better, it finally lured me in about 3/4 of the way through the book. Took me several weeks to read which is unusally and should have been a sign. The ending...total disappointment. Expected more and got much much less!

    Beach reading, at best

    Despite occasionally scintillating writing, this book is full of selfish, self-centered, spoiled and oversexed characters who are obsessed with their image and who speak mostly in four-letter words. None of the characters evoked in me one whit of personal connection or caring.

    9/11 barely a presence

    The setting for this novel is New York and the 9/11 tragedy. Aside from the pictures on the front cover and back I did not find any images in the writing to make me feel anything about 9/11. I wanted to read about those images and remember because it is apart of my history. The characters are doing a dance with each other but I cannot determine which dance it is because the pacing is odd. The interaction between husband and wife and subsequently, their lovers is stale. If this is as the title suggests, then I will graciously pass.
