Yet another Emily Giffin novel, and I think it was okay for the most part. The thing I HATE about Giffin as a writer is she makes a really interesting, difficult scenario that makes you sympathize with her characters, and then she can't think of how to solve the moral dilemma, so near the end of her books she pulls something COMPLETELY horrible, whether it's a cliché plot development or a seriously erroneous logical argument for making her characters change motives (an anti-feminist/anti-individualist argument in this case). The fact that one of her (good) characters references Romeo and Juliet as an example of true love is truly sickening, and yet this is the turning-point argument that makes one of her main characters change their mind on a crucial issue. Ugh. Other than that, which for a while seriously made me want to just stop reading since I could see where the story was about to go, the rest of the book is decent for its genre.

Alice Yes! I HATED that Romeo and Juliet were referenced as The Perfect Romance. That whole scene had me rolling my eyes so hard I gave myself a headache.

Iyad Cannot agree more:-)

Sandy Affer This book was very contradictory. First she has met her soulmate, but let's him go. But supposedly still holds him in her heart as "soulmate" all the while f---ing some random guy from her office. Sorry Ms Giffin but your plot does not follow.
