Oh sweet honey on the rock was this book shallow. I like my trash as much as the next gal but, man, these characters needed a slap. I liked Prospect Park West, Sohn's earlier book featuring the same neighborhood and some the same characters. I can't remember if it was before I had a child though. It seemed everyone in this book was either bothered, burdened or anxious about their children, which resulted in them being bitchy spouses, cheaters and substance abusers. Oh and not to mention CONSTANT COMPLAINERS. Yowsa!
I think I may be over this a bit. I couldn't look past the drinking while taking care of your kids or having quickies with strangers while your kids napped in the next room. Call me a prude but that's just rude!
Anyway, the narrator was right on in her bitchiness and maybe that added to my dilemma with it all. She had the tone. You know the tone. The snotty, whiny, "Who me? The world doesn't revolve around me?!" tone. Ack.
I listened to it all however. I did. It was shocking and I had to see how it ended. This book, in my opinion ,would be suited for the chick lit crowd, perhaps or those that want the cliche fluff. Not a whole heck of a lot of substance. Sex, Drugs, Infidelity, repeat.
