This is the story of a love triangle between David, Alex and Camille. David is the serious, kind of depressive, hard-working type, while Alex is a charmer who never follows through with his plans, and goes through a girl a week. David falls for Camille after seeing her at a party, and enlists Alex's help in talking to her; but then Alex ends up with Camille.The book is pretty much exclusively about the three of them, with only minor breaks to talk about David's work and his work-related trip to Brazil. I enjoyed the dialogue and the descriptions of how difficult relationships can be. I would have enjoyed a little more levity, some comic relief, as David's depression could sometimes be hard to take. Still, I liked the ending.
