A So-So Story
I was dissappointed in this book. It started out "fair" and continued at that level. I found the husband-bashing to be a little much, or was it that the wife could actually be that dumb? The children characters were not any more realistic.
The narration was also so-so. I found her male voices disturbing (typical of many female narrators).
There could have been so much more to this story, but it was a come-again hippie, mid-life crisis, coming-of-age tale that has been told too many times.

The narrator grows on you
I enjoyed this book a great deal. I found the narrator a little jarring at first, but soon became accustomed to her voice. She does a good job of differentiating the characters--her adolescent girl voice is excellent.
