I liked this book. I feel like the characters spoke to me (except for the one married to the actress-forgot his name). They just seem so lost and confused like what they planned for their lives didn't work out and now they're not sure what to do. I feel like I'm at a similar stage in my life and can relate. Maybe if I wasn't in the same funk a lot of the characters were in then I wouldn't have liked it as well. I liked that at the end some of the characters received some closure while others didn't. At first this bothered me, that their wasn't an end or resolution to some of the characters stories, but then I realized that's life and some of them still have things to figure out.

Aside from the characters, the imagery the author provided was excellant. I could picture the scenes in the book like scenes in a movie. It almost felt like you were there. The downside was there was a little too much talk about sex so if that is a problem for you I wouldn't recommend this novel. I thought it was a great, quick read and I finished it in an evening.

I received this for free through GoodReads First Reads.
