Publisher's Summary

All You Could Ask For, debut novel by Mike Greenberg, cohost of ESPN's Mike and Mike in the Morning, is a tender and insightful story of friendship and love, heartbreak and renewal, played out in the lives of three unforgettable women.
Happily married Brooke discovers her loving husband has led a separate life with…another wife.
Newlywed Samantha learns of her husband's cheating heart when she finds the goods on his computer.
High-powered career woman Katherine works with heartbreaker Phillip, the man who hurt her early on in her career.
Brooke, Samantha, and Katherine don't know one another, but their stories are about to intertwine in ways no one could have imagined.
And all three are about to discover the power of friendship to conquer adversity, the satisfaction of unexpected delights, the incredible difference one human being can have on other lives - and that they have all they could ask for, as long as they have each other.

Great story and great performance!

I found the story of these women's lives to be compelling. Though, I am a man, I have had similar experiences (avoiding spoilers), and I found their reaction believable, because I have walked in their shoes.

I also found Gilbert's performance to be quite good. I listen to tons of audiobooks (I might be singlehandedly keeping audible in the black!), and I would say her performance of the three different women, not to mention male characters to be quite outstanding. I also appreciated the interview she did with Greenberg at the end. It was nice to hear some of the background of the story and how it came about.

Annoyed by Hidden Theme

I was really enjoying this book until it hit the "hidden theme" which has already been revealed here by others. I found this annoying, because frankly I would have avoided the book had I known about it which is probably why it is kept hidden in the publisher's synopsis. I stuck with it, however, mainly because I didn't have another book on reserve and had a long drive ahead of me. I really don't know what to think about how the three stories panned out, central theme wise. You can be the judge of that. However, I will say that the characters were interesting and the other aspects of the stories were engaging and entertaining. I agree with one of the other reviewers about the Brooke story - it did seem like something was missing and this must be the plot line mentioned in the synopsis that never materialized. It must have been edited out, which for me is probably not a bad thing because I like to think that there are marriages where the partners are happy and fully committed. Anyway, on balance, I would say that the book was not bad but not great.
