This book started out so strongly. I was in love with it. But halfway through, my love turned a bit sour, as characters started doing really stupid things to mess up their lives. Sometimes things seem too absurd and just serve to present obstacles for the characters to overcome - you know? Anyway, I still love Mendelson's style, I love reading about New Yorkers, and in the end it all worked out pretty well.
