it was ok

Closer to three stars maybe. Some great observations. A lot of it concerns struggling to make ends meet on the UWS and middle age sex. Envy gets a workout. I couldn't muster any affection for the characters. They weren't particularly endearing, there is little humor. Everything just gets screwed up for them over the long haul and they have to make do with what's left. I'm not sure what the author was trying to achieve. A plot might have helped. It's not that she can't write, she writes very well.
