I was disappointed in this book. Both main characters were unappealing and after a promising start, the book went rapidly downhill. There are many other books worthy of taking the time to read but this isn’t one of them!

I found the book a good read… at least the first 4/5. Kalfus introduces a pair of interesting characters — Marshall and Joyce Harriman — who must have brought a considerable amount of emotional baggage to their marriage, considering their spite-filled, impending divorce. 9/11 plays a significant role in each of their lives, and a relative’s wedding adds a degree of comic relief as well as a glimpse into Joyce’s and Marshall’s emotional well-being — or lack thereof. The party Marshall attends seemed out of place in the novel, except to demonstrate how pathetic his life has become, or will be. And the ending! A fantastical neoconservative’s version of how the war in Iraq was supposed to turn out.
