Marathon County Public Library MCPL's Reviews > Point, Click, Love
by Molly Shapiro
bookshelves: adult-fiction, mcpl-review, todo
Molly Shapiro's debut novel, "Point, Click, Love," has all the necessary ingredients for a modern chick-lit novel -- successful and strong female characters, relationship issues and modern problems. One character is the sole breadwinner for her family, one character is divorced but looking for love, one character's biological clock is ticking and one character is having marital difficulties. The execution, however, falls a little flat. The dialogue between characters is stilted and the writing has a more journalistic feel than a novel. Shapiro's novel does create an interesting case study of social media and how it affects our lives, however. It was just very difficult to feel sympathy for the characters, whose flaws and dissatisfaction with life overshadowed what was truly good and noble about them.
