I have to admit -- at first, I avoided this book. The premise of this New York big-time director who decides she doesn't know how to love and postpones her wedding? Sounds like a crap chick-lit. I'm glad I persevered. The story of the Ya-Yas is every bit intriguing as it is funny. The insights at times are incredible and there were some chapters that I just could not put the book down until I finished it.

The only reason I'm giving it 3 stars instead of 4 or 5 is that I just did not care for Sidda and her relationship with Connor. Connor was too perfect, too obliging (no man I know would respond to his fiance postponing their wedding three months before it's to happen with, "Oh, okay -- but don't make me wait too long. Let's have sex and orgasm together.") And that's another thing that always irked me -- did we really need to read about all these simultaneous orgasms? One time, sure, I'll take it. But three or four times? Essentially every time they do it? Oi.
