it was ok
bookshelves: owned

I thought this was an OK book. I didn't get fully into it until about 1/4 to 1/2 the way in. And once I did it didn't seem to go anywhere. It's not a bad story though. It seemed to be a pretty accurate portrayal of 2 young couples who find themselves infatuated with the wrong significant others. Which made it out to be a somewhat depressing story. I was up in the air about the book until I read the end and felt it redeemed it worth a little.

I would only recommend this book to someone if they needed a good in between book, or if they were looking for something "light", something they could put down and pick up at anytime.
