I loved this book. I loved the way it presented the perspective of both the wife and the other woman so honestly and well. I didn't know whom to root for.
A well-written and thoughtful novel about infidelity. Cynthia Nixon's narration is superb. While some characters - particularly the married doctor and the injured child - are drawn a little too broadly, the novel gives the reader a sympathetic and believable portrait of both the wife and 'the other woman.'
This was the first novel I have read/listened to by Emily Giffin - I am hooked. I loved this book and her writing style. I would recommend this book to anyone over 18.
i have never felt compelled to write a review but read them all the time when deciding on a book. so i thought i would say how much i enjoyed this book, the reading, the writing and the emotion conveyed. i loved that it showed both sides of the issues - worthy of a read indeed!
I found this book pretty darned conventional in its analysis of a marital affair populated by wooden characters and predictable outcomes. Thank god for the high minded wife. Not. Cynthia Nixon's reading is pretty good and I somehow managed to wade through to the end.
I loved Cynthia Nixon's narration and how the story was told from multiple points of view. I had a really tough time liking or relating to the mistress, however.
An insightful book about a love affair from the points of view of both women - the wife and the "other woman" - made even better by the narration of Cynthia Dixon.
