This is a story about why we chose to love the ones we love, and why we just can't forget the ones who aren't right for us.

"Giffin's snappy prose makes Ellen's dilemma compelling, once again proving she's at the top of the chick-lit pack." (Booklist)
I am a big fan of Emily Giffin, but this book was by far my favorite. This story really hit home for me because I know that I have often wondered, "what if." I was so pleased to see that Giffin tackled this question with an honest and accurate portrayal of the questions that we often find ourselves asking throughout life. Like her other books, I found myself understanding the characters, without necessarily agreeing with them. I was so enthralled with the story and I could not stop listening to it!!
if you enjoyed something blue or baby proof, this lastest book might be a bit disappointing. The character lacks the depth required to feel for her and her situation. She just seems silly and selfish, instead of someone who is going through a real, emotional struggle. I generally enjoy emily giffin's books, but one is less than stellar.
I have a personal connection to what happens in the book. Emily Giffin wrote it in such a way that will make one believe that the situation is real. I throughly enjoyed this audio book.
However happily married, there is always someone from the past that makes you think about what might have happened if ... Giffin does a good job in having her main character Ellen confronted with her past.
The abridged version is well done: Nothing is missing or seems rushed and the narration is well done.
