really liked it

I really liked the first half of the book, but the second half confused me. I couldnt justify Hadley or Ernest's actions/reactions ( or lack of reaction). I wonder how close to reality the book actually is.

The lesson learned is not to completely dissolve into your marriage and to maintain your independence. its always discomforting to watch a marriage end. I also felt like little bumby was neglected.

This was an easy read and a good description of life in the 1920s.

Jason I got halfway through this book before I had to admit that I was really bored by it. I rarely stop reading books after I start them, but I couldn't think of a good reason to continue this one.
