I would not call it a spoiler review but if you want to go into this one COMPLETELY green then you may want to skip this review just to be on the safe sideThis is a tough one to rate I kept waiting for the moment when all ell would break loose but it just wasn t a Weaving a Family Untangling Race and Adoption hell breaking loose kind of book Everything kind of rolled leisurely to light However it did keep my interest throughout The characters of Jeff and Tish were very immature and shallow in all their love talk which was not love at all but lust and boredom I HOPE that the author was intending to portray them as immature and shallow and NOT trying to drum up sympathy for this adulterous duo with their talk of love and connection and all that The cheating was born pretty much out of boredom as both partiesad it pretty good at ome I felt like the author was rather sympathetic towards Tish the mistress I don t know if this was a deliberate techniue to force the reader to think against such a tone or what but I just did not like this Tish gal and thought she was selfish selfish selfish And really I didn t expect much better from Jeff the front runner for most immature man in the world until e got Principles of Agricultural Engineering Volume-1 (Farm Power, farm Machinery, Farm Buildings, Post Harvest-Technology) hit by a car in the first 5% of the book Really all this can be gleaned from the first 20 pages I won t even get into the ending which Iave a BIG opinion about Props to whoever was in charge of cover design on this one A pretty clever cover Clever title as well It took me 3 days to decide to review this book for two big reasons 1 I liked it on some level and I didn t want to be The Special Undercover Delivery (The Little Ad (The Little Ad(option) Agency Book 1) harsh 2 Ionestly don t enjoy offending people and in this case authors because writing a book is fucking The Black Academic's Guide to Winning Tenure--Without Losing Your Soul hard That said I justad to review this because 3 days later it still managed to irritate the Randomized Algorithms Cambridge International Series on Parallel Computation hell out of me and I don t feel comfortable when I don t review books that affected me Warning THERE WILL BE SPOILERS The Bad Characters Where do I even start Iated Tish with a burning passion And no it s not because I can relate to Claire or

luxuries she got in the book Iated The Japanese Pottery Handbook: Revised Edition her because shead the audacity to show up at the funeral of a man she The Columbia Guide to East African Literature in

kindness when she was being whiny a woman shead met and looked in the fucking face then Jane Addams had an affair wither Harry Potter for Nerds husband God the nerve I also didn t buy that the reason she didn t tell Claire the truth about the affair is because she promised to keep it a secret for Jeff She was savinger own ass because she s the kind of person who loves to eat their cake and ave it

shield ourselves from it Characterization and Mechanics I ad a minor problem with the characterization For some reason Tish and Claire s voices sounded really similar as if they were the same person They thought alike they spoke alike and even their families were fairly similar as in decent spouse and single child of about the same age It s not that big of a deal but it stood out when I ad small confusion deciphering whose perspective I was reading AsJEFF DIDN T HAVE THE PERFECT MARRIAGE THERE WERE
for the mechanicsthe mechanics also L'art d'aimer had issue figuring out the past from the present cause the story kinda jumped around The Good1 I really liked the writing style Aside from the minor repetition of phrases during dialogs I would absolutely love to read from this writer That said beyond my major grievances Iave to wonder what uestion the author was trying to pose with this book Honestly nothing that occurred offered any insights into why people cheat The story only scraped the very surface of the concept so I felt like there was little reason for Jeff to cheat at all In retrospect I get that there isn t always a reason to why people cheat but because the author never delved into Jeff s rationalization of Collins French with Paul Noble - Learn French the Natural Way, Part 3 his behavior I just assumed it was an eye for an eye type situation wheree only strayed as a revenge to Claire for kissing is brother Is this far fetched Maybe But that s ow I felt at the end of the En Familienmitgliedern umgehen Dann reist auch noch Jeffs Bruder an der zugleich ihr Exfreund istDoch auch eine andere Frau trauert Tish Jeffs Kollegin Sie nimmt an der Beerdigung teil aber nur.
