This was one of the best books I’ve read in a long time but it was a tough, emotional read so I would be hesitant to recommend it without that warning. This isn’t a happy book even though there were moments of joy throughout.

I clearly missed something with this book because I found nothing funny about this “hilarious” and “outrageously funny” novel. In fact, if I didn’t have to read this for a book club I was hosting, I would have stopped at around 15%. But I soldiered on.

I chose this book for one of my reading challenges this year based on nothing more than the good reviews it was receiving. I didn’t know much about it and was hoping that I wouldn’t be disappointed. Wow, was this a good book and I am so glad that I read it. I have already recommended it to a few friends and am eager to hear what they think.
