What’s it about?
James narrates this story.  He is obviously looking back and telling this story to his child.  The story opens with James as a struggling young writer.   He goes to visit his best friend Rob and instantly falls in love with Rob’s  fiancée- Lou.  Lou epitomizes perfection for James and over the years no one ever seems to measure up.

What did it make me think about?
When will this be over?

Should I read it?
This book was just not for me.  It seemed melodramatic from the start.  Who writes a book to their child and and chooses to tell this story?  I even went so far as to look back at the reviews to see what made me pick it up.  Many people seem to love it so maybe I am too hard hearted…  I would describe this book as a romantic tearjerker.   So if you want to read a book that makes you root for a couple, then pull your hair out,  and then cry- this one is for you.

“I would appreciate my life more.  I would do more and love more in the years that followed.  I would finish the things I started.”
