Publisher's Summary

On the Delta Shuttle between New York and Washington, Elise finds herself sitting next to Donald - tall, with dark wavy hair and a big easy smile. She's left the world of women's magazines in Manhattan for graduate school in D.C. He's left investment banking to become a teacher. They are both unattached. They exchange stories. They fall in love. One year later they're headed for an April wedding. Storybook finish? Not quite.

Donald has some serious baggage: an ex-fiancée named Adrienne. And she's not just any ex; she is "the mother of all exes." Yale educated, French extraction, ravishing, and she's just shown up in D.C. Adrienne is Elise's worst nightmare incarnate - and before too long her all-consuming obsession. Every man comes with baggage. But did it have to be her?

Laura Zigman's Her is a pitch-perfect look at what happens when the deepest, darkest heart of jealousy takes over your life.

    "Trite, Annoying, Badly Written"

    This book was so disappointing. I really enjoyed Animal Husbandry, but Her was just lame. The characters are annoying, self-involved, and shallow. Zigman's writing is overly precious and riddled with asides and parentheticals. And the storyline - a pampered brat driven crazy with insecurity and jealousy - is an insult to all women. One of the worst books I've heard.

    "Annoying, Whiney and Pathetic"

    What a disappointing book. The characters in this book were predictable and poorly developed and were involved in a plot that went no where fast. This book showed the sterotype women have been fighting to dispell for years. The fight between two women over one man is a poor basis for any story. But if reading about neurotic women that sneak around in the bushes to see what their boyfriends are doing, this is the book for you.

    "Struggled!"

    This story was a struggle...The storyline drags and I am not really sure that I can feel for the main character. I felt blah listening to her trials and her fiance is a drip. I didn't make it very far into the story because of them. A total snore!!!!!!
