Written by a 23-year-old and an Oprah Book Club selection I had to give this book a try.

I went in really wanting to like this book. As I kept reading I couldn't help but hope there was more to the story.

We meet four characters who all go to a deaf mute for companionship. However, everyone is so self involved with their own needs, they don't realize he's actually pretty lonely himself.

I enjoyed the idea of having the deaf mute as the person everyone goes to. It makes a point that all people really want in life is someone who listens.

It was kind of interesting, but I've read better.
