Happiness Sold Separately
Sep 26, 2007
The characters in this book were amazing. I could empathize with all three of the main characters, even though at times they were at odds with each other. I admired Elinor's boldness and humor and related to her anger upon discovering her husband's affair. I felt bad for Ted, who felt helpless while watching his wife go through the trauma of miscarriage and realizing she wouldn't be able to have children. I also empathized with Gina, who was frustrated with Ted's inability to commit to her even though come on, what are the odds? But the fact that I could understand and relate to each character is a testimony to the writer. Some books I breeze through and honestly couldn't care less about the people in the story. This book was very deep and it was a very good story. The jacket says that Ted is having an affair, but I didn't expect Elinor's realization of it to happen so quickly. And I won't spoil the surprise, but the way she handled it had me laughing out loud!
