A Lilac Wolf and Stuff Review

I couldn't put this book down once I started reading it. I even read late into the night and finally finished it before work this morning.

The main character, Waverly is a woman we can all relate to. She feels inferior to her friends, that she hasn't "grown up" yet, and when she gets so stressed out she hides from the issue (like bills). One of her friends is a woman from a wealthy family, whom she is jealous of the money and the beauty. Then her other friend marries a doctor, has a child and settles down in the suburbs. Wavery is sinking under a mountain of debt and she can't seem to appreciate what she does have.

When things start coming apart for her friends, she realizes what she nearly lost. She works on her getting own life together, even as she is helping her girlfriends. This struck me as very realistic. Our lives aren't running a single story-line, we have as many things pulling at us as we allow. Friends, family, work, children, even school. All that goes on simultaneously and the author did a fantastic job capturing that.

Yes another 5 star review. I've had a very lucky week.

Awful

This book is just terrible. The characters are shallow; the story is boring and the storytelling is laborious.

    Good read

    On the whole, I enjoyed this book, although I thought the protoganist spent too much time worrying about her friends rather than herself. She has financial troubles and doesn't tell her partner, even though he shares the house with her. This is one of those stories where everyone else's life looks great from the outside, until you find out the truth.

    A Great Debut

    I really enjoyed this book. The story is an important issue that needs more attention. I will definetely look for more from this author.

    Pretty good

    Beginning is slow. Way too many stalls in the telling of the story. Book would have been better at about 200 pages. But good messages in the end.
