    The Roses met at an auction on Cape Cod. Oliver had just bought a Staffordshire figurine-one of a pair-but Barbara outbid him for its mate. The figurines belonged together, and so did the Roses. Now the two objets d'art sat together on a shelf in the Roses' home-symbols of the passion their owners shared. A passion that united them and now was about to tear them apart.

    Overall

    This is an excellent book. I had seen the movie quite some time ago, though from what I recall, the book follows a more conventional narrative form as compared to the movie in which the Danny Devito character tells the story.

    This is a classic story in that it not only explores a particularly dark yet relatable aspect of potential relationship deterioration, but it holds up to the 20 years or so of time since written.

    It's an entertaining listen. The characters, events and storyline are gripping.

    The reader was excellent. I enjoyed the narrative and character voices very much.
