I'd probably say 3.5 stars is more accurate. The mystery is good but the narrator alternates in each chapter. Some are interesting - some are not interesting. Reading the thoughts of the family members was usually fascinating. The elderly detective w...more

I've only read one other Amy Bloom book but I can say I'm hooked. She does a great job of creating these sprawling road trip/journey stories. Her characters are flawed but loveable. It was a little slow to get into this book but once the two sisters...more
Jenny and 4 other people liked Nicole's review of How Did You Get This Number:
How Did You Get This Number by Sloane Crosley
"If all you know about New Yorkers comes from "Seinfeld", "Sex and the City", and books like this one, you probably think Manhattanites are a selfish, immature group. Take Crosley's first essay in this collection in which she complains about being..." Read more of this review »

Tina Fey
“So, my unsolicited advice to women in the workplace is this. When faced with sexism, or ageism, or lookism, or even really aggressive Buddhism, ask yourself the following question: “Is this person in between me and what I want to do?” If the answer is no, ignore it and move on. Your energy is better used doing your work and outpacing people that way. Then, when you’re in charge, don’t hire the people who were jerky to you.”
Tina Fey, Bossypants

Caitlin Moran
“You can tell whether some misogynistic societal pressure is being exerted on women by calmly enquiring, ‘And are the men doing this, as well?’ If they aren’t, chances are you’re dealing with what we strident feminists refer to as ‘some total fucking bullshit’.”
Caitlin Moran, How to Be a Woman
