This is probably my favorite Amanda Cross book, just because it ended so surprisingly. I grew to like Winifred through Kate. ( )

Loved it! I just love her writing, the dialogue, her ways of looking at life, relationships, academics, etc. If a reader isn't in it for those things, I could see that this book might not hold your attention. I happen to think the ending is perfect. Cross is usually giving us her views about various cultural phenomenon in the process of telling her story and I always find that aspect as if not more interesting than the story itself. In this case she reflects on friendships between women and between women and men. And it is always wonderful to read about strong, smart, independent women. ( )

It was like she could not come up with a reasonable ending. This one was not very good. ( )

i finally finished this book. At the end I discovered that I could care less about Winifred. The book was boring. ( )
