I liked the story and it was an interesting concept. It had a good flow and I didn't feel that it was slow in any parts. Really, my only problem with the book had to do with the authors descriptions. For example, she would take the time to describe the main characters clothing which sounded like things my 60 year old mother would wear, not a 28 year old. And has anyone referred to jean as dungarees in the past 50 years? Also, her description of the characters 900 sq. ft. apartment made it sound like a 90 sq. ft. apartment. I had an 800 sq. ft. apartment that had one bedroom with walk-in closet, decent size bath, living/dining area (with enough room to fit a rectangular table for 4 and seating around the entertainment center), kitchen, office area, as well as a walk in laundry room. I don't understand how in 900 sq. ft. you would only have enough space for a futon and table for 2. Is the author just rolling in dough so much that she can't even comprehend someone being able to live comfortably in 900 sq. ft. I just though that was really odd.

Cindy This book was written in 1975 that's why the descriptive language is different.
