Once again Lorna Landvik has come through with a great story. While probably not my favorite - that would be a tie between 'Patty Jane's House of Curl' and 'Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons'. But the character development and growth in this book are very well written. Two main characters start the story in high school and continue onto middle age. The paths they choose and the choices they make run parallel in the book. The story is believable and in Landviks style humorous while also making a point. I cannot say enough about the books Lorna Landvik has written and I'm waiting for the next. Carol
This was a very pleasant read- much less emotionally intense than the rest of her books. Good things happen to the likable main character so the book does have a heartwarming feel to it, although some things are left up in the air at the end, which is a little disappointing. I've read all Ms Landvik's books, and this was nowhere near as touching as Oh My Stars or Welcome to the Great Mysterious, both of which had me in tears (but in a good way.) But it was an enjoyable book, just not as "important" as the others!
I like Lorna Landvik's writing style she is great at creating characters that you really get to know and understand. this book is filled with very colorful characters, which i enjoyed following through highshool and 30 years beyond.
