Publisher's Summary

A cracklingly funny and poignant debut novel about the ways we love, even when we're not at our best.
Stacey Lane feels like a monster. Tommy DeMarco might be one.
Since her husband died eight months ago, Stacey's been a certified mess - a poet who can't write anymore, a good mother who feels like she's failing her kids. She's been trying to redefine herself, to find new boundaries.
Tommy has no respect for boundaries. A surprisingly well-read A-list Hollywood star, Tommy's fallen in love with Stacey's novel-in-verse, a feminist reimagining of Frankenstein, no less. His passion for the book, and eventually its author, will set their lives on a collision course. They'll make a movie, make each other crazy, and make love - but only in secret.
As Stacey travels between her humdrum life in the suburbs of Omaha and the glamorous but fleeting escape Tommy offers, what begins as a distracting affair starts to pick up weight. It's a weight that unbalances Stacey's already unsteady life but offers new depth to Tommy's.
About desire, love, grief, parenthood, sexual politics, and gender, Monsters: A Love Story is a witty portrait of a relationship gone off the rails and two people who are made for each other - even if they're not so sure they see it that way.

Where are the redeeming qualities?

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I can't say I hated this book but I really hated it's characters. They were all self-absorbed jerks with little to no redeeming qualities. I realize this book is about imperfect people falling in love but I saw nothing to make these characters worth my time.
