I bought both books by TM at the same time and the lesson I learned was; LISTEN TO THE SAMPLE before u do that! This story is a little different ..Show More »than the first, since its not a comming out story, and i liked the first better. But i think it depends on your preference. Its still a good story - but since there is no soul deep sorrow in this story, the narrator stands out even more. Still sounds like someone in need of comfort all the time.. READ the book instead.
Above all this book needed a plot and something for the reader to care about.

It's more a series of scenes in which couples have (formulaic, unconvincing) sex and tell each other how much they love them.

This is definitely a book written for and by women.
There is a poor attempt at creating some tension with a miscommunication between one couple and the behaviour of one of the children. But I found it unmoving and uninteresting, probably because it was so as realistic as a Dynasty bitch fight.
