Admittedly, when I started 'The Adventures of Pebble Beach' I was a little unsure whether it was my type of book. The erotic scene and language that gets this book started, was not my usual type of read. However, I'm so pleased I continued. Pebble Beach is a great character. Although I sometimes wanted to slap her, I couldn't help but love her. She's in a very vulnerable time in her life; she is in her mid-40s, recently divorced and single mum to two teenage boys. She is working so hard to make ...more

Berger's heroine is Pebble Beach, a newly divorced woman in her mid-40’s, trying to raise two teenage sons while struggling to forge a career for herself as a copywriter. She has a tendency to be attracted to the wrong man, is dealing with issues of insecurity and low self-confidence, is not at ease with the aging process, and is terrified that she will not be able to support herself and her two sons.

Both her professional and personal misadventures are issues that single women over forty can ide

Isn't it funny when you are in bed with the most significant boss in country, but he is not attractive at all? Don’t care she just dreaming! That was Pebble Beach’s dream or should I say nightmare. Pebble is copywriter, recently divorced in her forty with two teenage kids and she lives in Copenhagen, Denmark. She is swimming with the sharks in the big sea of business. One thing bothers her, that thing is loneliness; whether it is from long nights of Copenhagen or her age she really what to meets ...more

I just finished this very, very cool book (and I usually don't say that about books).

I've read a more than few of the authors books before and highly recommend them if you seek a "how to fix your life by fixing you" guide. But because the other books are very practical, but fun and accessible, I was curious to see how she'd do in the fiction genre. She did well indeed.

The story works, the characters are realistic and just as fucked up as you or me - it's NOT a sermon, it's a story that has som

Recommends it for: Women
This is a woman’s story, no doubt about it. This is Barbara’s first novel and it’s so damned believable! Pebble’s inner dialog is the key to this book being a fantastic read.
Pebble could be you and she could be me.
Pebble lives in Copenhagen but she’s originally from the US, she has two sons and she’s recently divorced. She’s almost 45 and she’s struggling with the very same things every single woman has struggled with.

Silly me! I was expecting a story set on the beach so I was in for a surprise. I have since picked up another book by Barbara Berger and I an see she has used her vast array of knowledge to bring a lot to this book. It is entertaining but also makes you think about life and where we find ourselves.

I can't imagine there are many divorced women who won't relate to parts of this book. I probably related to more than I should and found it totally engrossing. Definitely time for me to explore other books from the author! ...more
