Informazioni generali




This cute story of an unhappy suburban housewife felt like reading Are You There God, It's Me Margaret, or Forever but as an adult. It was racy, often sexy, and dealt with sex and Sandy's sexual frustration in ways that felt as taboo as the subjects broached in Blume's YA books did at the time when I read them.
I thought the characters were well-developed; I felt like I got to know Sandy pretty well, and came to dislike Norman, quickly. However, the characters were also multi-faceted, and my feelings about them changed several times throughout the book.
I enjoyed it, and read it in less than 24 hours. It was fun and engrossing, and a nice break from the literary fiction that is usually such a staple of my bibliographic diet. Did it change my life? Nope. But I'm glad I read it. Would I recommend it? Perhaps if you're looking for a super quick, easy, and saucy summer read. Am I glad I borrowed it? For sure.

I'd always meant to read this book and never got around to it until now. Now I know, if I get back to the Public Library, whether to recommend it. It seems like it might depend on how devoutly attached someone is to a particular religion, whether they'd like it. If it's not cool with someone that a young girl be brought up without some sort of church experience, and told to pick a religion by herself, that person probably wouldn't like the book.

I'd forgotten much of this except that it was really good, and it still is.
