Melodramatic woman bores her husband into leaving her, and then spends the rest of the book attempting to bore the reader stone dead.
If you've ever had a friend who can't live without a crisis and can't stop whinging about them, that's the tone of this book.
This novel is well-written and well-read, and as other reviewers have pointed out, it makes you think.
The only difficulty I had was that I found it difficult to suspend disbelief and accept this alternate world. This is possibly because it's in the "Contemporary" category rather than Science Fiction where I think it ultimately belongs, but more, I couldn't square the real science and controversy behind this subject with the alternate reality. One only has to look at the political dust-up over mere stem cell research to see how ultimately unrealistic this story is in this setting; in this time period.
But that is my only criticism.
It is a good, solid story.
