Maybe I've read too many marital thrillers with creepy/abusive husbands, but this one definitely felt formulaic and like I'd read the exact same thing before. The payoff at the end was pretty weak. Kind of a snooze.
I didn't want to like this SUPER overhyped novel. Another book about privileged, dysfunctional New Yorkers with first-world problems, YAWN. But then it was funny and mocked its characters' pretensions. Still too many hugs and lessons learned and neat endings, but exceeded my expectations.
