it was amazing
bookshelves: 2006
Read in June, 2006

As soon as I finished Prep, I immediately put this book on hold. It's Curtis Sittenfeld's second book and it just came out in May. After I finished Matilda, I started this book. I went into it with high expectations and it didn't catch me quite as quickly as Prep but then again it isn't the same book and I wouldn't want it to be. Over the last few days this book has really caught me and I'm loving it. I find myself, once again, really identifying with the main character Hannah. She's making so many of the mistakes that I made when I was dating, although I don't think I made my opinions as public as she does. I'm starting to really love this book, too. The woman at work that I recommended Prep to (which she loves), I told her to wait a few months before reading The Man of My Dreams because it's good but it might be overshadowed by Prep.

June 15, 2006: This book didn't disappoint in the end. Once again, I felt like I could have been friends with Hannah. I also really missed Lee from Prep when I had finished it and I really miss Hannah, too. It's going to be hard to wait for Curtis Sittenfeld's next book since this one just came out.
