If you want a good representation about having lots of sex with different men, the bad consequences without thinking through the relationship then that's the message of this book. It's the stories of young women who have lots of sex with men who they  wouldn't have chosen had they made a plan for their lives. It's truly a good read to give someone about how not to have a lasting relationship since none of them have one. Sad really.

What I liked the best of this book was the honesty in the writing. The steady-eyed, sometimes stark look at male-female relationships that still make the world turn. The setting is fabulous all on its own. Incorporating the raging atmosphere of the 60s and 70s, the decades take on a role of their own, sometimes becoming as important to the characters' lives as the plot. The feminist movements, the changes in attitude that the reader sees towards women as the story progresses is astounding, and for me, who did not live through those years, a revelation. I'm in love with the characters that fill this book. I finished reading it earlier this afternoon, and their voices are still roaming around my head. They are so vibrant and complex, so different one from the other, that there's no way to forget any of them, or to hate any of them. They are all written with acute sensitivity, creating balanced and believable characters. This is truly a book about women striving to find themselves and happiness, be it within the boundaries that society laid on them or outside of them. It is a story full of love and hate, of revenge and betrayal, but it is mainly about the lives of these women and the men who touched their lives. It was a joy to follow them through their lives. I can easily recommend this book to women and men alike.

Cutting my losses at page 115. It started out interesting. After a third of the way through i still could not find a plot or a story line connecting all the endless random people.

Oh the memories this book brought back (not that I lived the same kind of lifestyle). The great detail and fascinating characters really bring vivid life to this book. It's a definite period peace and hopefully younger women will read it and have greater insight into the times that their mother's and grandmother's lived.
