I get most of my books from the library but I'm a little irked that I paid actual money for this one.

Now, I generally enjoy Elizabeth Berg's novels but this one didn't do it for me. It's about a 50 year old woman who walks out on her husband to take a road trip to find herself. Yet, she writes to her husband every day and fills in the gaps with diary entries. I usually quite enjoy epistolary novels but this one didn't make the mark, probably because we only ever hear from Nan, the main character. The enjoyable part of a novel like this is usually the varying viewpoints but we get none of that. Just Nan blathering on about petty grievances and perceived slights. ( )

Even more unbelievable than A Year of Pleasures! ( )

I loved this book! I found it to be a quick read. The story seems implausible but the concept is enticing to any middle age woman evaluating her life, a sort of mid life crisis. The author uses humor to describe the woman's journey of self awareness through letters to her husband. I laughed out loud! ( )

I didnÛªt really give this much of a chance, but I passionately hated the 5 or so pages that I did read.
