My judgment of this book is clouded by the fact that I decided to read this book based on it being on a list of novels about happiness; however, I don't really agree with that assessment. The most optimistic theme I could get from the book is that life is a mixture of happiness, pain, and random awfulness. Or maybe to have love and friendship in our lives we have to accept that people are flawed. I like the writing in this book. I like that it isn't about some extraordinary happenings but everyday people and life. It made me think, which is always part of a good book.
