Worth a look
I absolutely hated the lates JCOates book I attempted, 'I'll Take You There' so I was not sure about this one. I was pleasantly surprised. Although the characters are not exactly likeable, I really got caught up in their lives. I expected a strange ending, (it was OK) but the stories about all the different characters were very absorbing and you start to care deeply for everyone. A very keen look at an affluent New York suburb. This book will appeal mostly to women and would probably be a great book club choice. Recommend.Was this review helpful?

Advertised as a romance, the book is much more than that. 'Middle Age' paints a disturbing picture of suburbia and yet pushes the reader on to see how the characters reinvent themselves for the better.Was this review helpful?
