really liked it
Read in March, 2010

My husband gave me this because he knew I liked the author. I had actually read it years before, but figured I'd re-read it since I now own a copy. I actually enjoyed it just as much the second time. I love how Berg seems to notice and luxuriate in the little details of life.

The main character in this story is sort of pathetic much of the time, which is actually what makes me like her so much. She's just so normal and yet so off-kilter that I am pretty sure I would get along with her.

I can't recommend this to many of my friends and family since it does contain profanity and some R-rated swearing and is sexually explicit in a couple ways that conservative readers may find distasteful.
