I co-worker of mine knows the author of this book. She told me that it was awful. I didn't believe her, but I should have. It really is not good.

I feel sorry for Jennifer Close because if she really feels the way the characters in this book feel about men and marriage she must be leading a really sad life.

I could barely tell the difference between any of the characters. I wasn't sure how they knew each other or which ones were friends or even WHY they were friends. Then random women would pop in for chapters out of nowhere -- like the girl we never heard of until the last 1/4 of the book but then had to hear about her 6 bridal showers -- and do nothing but be even more unpleasant than our main characters.

All the men are pot-heads, social misfits, or milquetoast momma's boys. The best one, I guess, is Harrison, and he evidently doesn't want to commit to our heroine since he can't even say I love you after living with his girlfriend for years. ( )

Sometimes a fluff book is exactly what you need to read and that is what this was. I did find parts of my self in several of the characters which made it fun to read. ( )

Funny. I really enjoyed reading this New York-centric short story/novel hybrid. My favorite characters are Isabella, Lauren, and Mary. ( )

This book has no plot, the characters are indistinguishable from one another, and I found it pretty boring most of the way through.

But then I got to the end and realized I kind of liked it. It is a book about growing up. About how your life completely changes from the time you are 22 and just out of college to when you are 30 and all your friends are married with kids and how you never really noticed yourself changing, it just happens.
