I want to hear more from this author
No one could ever consider this book a literary masterpiece, but I thoroughyl enjoyed it. To find a comedy these days that isn't so silly and unreal is difficult. But this book had it. The narrator did a wonderful job. The ability to distinguish between male, female, young, old ...what talent that takes that not all have.
The characters were real and believeable. Take the young son. Who wouldn't be embarressed by what his mother was trying to do to start a new life? But in the end (maybe a little too young for total reality), he has more fun with her life than his Dad's. Hooray!! (Sorry if I spoiled the story for anyone.)
Maybe the ending was too "happily ever after" for some people, but there was a struggle to get there and some enlightenment on everyone's part. There were mistakes this woman made that she discovered and learned from in this story. How much more can we expect?
Again, I want to hear more from this author.
