Er...what just happened?

I'm not sure what I read except to say that Benjamin is one of the whiniest characters I have ever come across. Everyone seems to go with his flow for no reason. He is an enormous baby.

I give it two stars as it did not keep me in agony for long, because it is a very quick read. And, the original cougar deserves her own star. Other than that...

I expected much more from this book seeing that it was turned into what is supposed to be a classic movie and it was on THE LIST. (1001 books) I have a feeling Dustin Hoffman brought more to this character than Charles Webb was capable of.

Must now watch movie to either experience relief or further disappointment.

"Sorry I suggested this for book club," she mutters.
