    Writer Rants on Beach Life

    Like another reviewer, I, too, had seen this book recommended in People magazine. I was rather disappointed in the story, as I thought it was very disconnected, although I did find the prose highly readable. There were far too many references to 9/11 so that by the novel's end their significance (if any) was lost entirely. Basically, I found the novel to be one long rant written against: large beach homes, the 'washabouts' in a small beach town, middle age, solitary life, affairs, second marriages, the 'Vows' page of the New York Times, George Bush, etc. After reading the cover notes, I thought this novel was rather transparent in its agenda given that the author herself has a beach home in Truro. It is amazing to me that one can get an entire book of complaints published, i.e., real estate development in a small beach town, and use it as a personal agenda to attack society, shoobies and politics.

    Not my favorite

    No matter what the reader's political affiliation, I and I bet a lot of other people, don't think a novel is the place to vent your political feelings! That said, I was terribly interested in this book at the beginning - - but it let me down time and time again. The ending dragged on and I felt zzzzzzzzzz
