did not like it

I almost never give a book one star. I always try to find something good to say about a book, and this one's by a best-selling author so I expected something enjoyable. Sadly, I found it just plain unpleasant. Two unlikeable couples find themselves unwillingly vacationing together. I couldn't relate to any of them. All they did was drink, (I don't think any of them were ever soberthroughout the whole book), and complain about their lives. Two of them have an affair. The Nanny that one couple brought with them seduces a 16-year-old boy. His parents don't care. They smoke pot together. His parents don't care.

Why should I -- the reader -- care what happens to any of them?

Majenta Sounds dire--in a don't-care kind of way. Cheers to you for getting through it and putting some actual care into your review of it.
