it was amazing
Read in February, 2008

This is the first book that i read which covers a lot of serious topics (suburbia life, adultery, perversion) which simply are not like the pop fiction novels I've been used to reading (romance, inspirational, adventure).

I've seen the movie first so it made reading this book a lot easier to engage with yet it still made me feel excited about what would happen in the next pages. There are many differences between the novel and its movie adaptation. Definitely, the characters have more depth in the book and how the book was concluded at the end was really not the way it was ended in the movie.

Despite the sensitive topics touched in the story, the author put some intelligent humor in his writing. While reading each chapter, you'll find yourself sympathizing with each character.

Tom Perrotta is a favorite of mine now and I definitely look forward to reading more of his books in the future.
