I received this book as part of my Haymarket Book Club subscription. I was excited by the description but didn't end up liking the book as much as I had hoped. I just never got into the story mainly because I found the characters and dialogue really unrealistic and not believable. The story was focused on two heterosexual couples and I found the men especially unrealistic. I just have never heard any men have discussions like these two characters had. When the dialogue doesn't match the characters, I find it very distracting. Not only was this an issue but the characters weren't developed very well and I was uncertain who they were.

Themes of this book include family, relationships, trust, poverty, work insecurity, and communication. ( )
