    This book follows a middle aged man during his first year separated from his wife It had moments of promise but there were too many odd and unconvincing sections Really a waste of time.

    I didn t find Chuck very likable, but perhaps that makes him realistic He had a very skewed view of himself and his situation, but that is probably true of everyone going through a divorce In the end I think he realized that and that helped save him as a protagonist for me.

    InterestingThe book chronicles a year in the life of a guy following his wife leaving him It s a sometimes weird year, and sometimes interesting, but mostly a repeat of the same old same old I don t think that I would read this author again.

    Divorce from a guy s perspective Entertaining but lightweight story of unwanted divorce from a man s perspective Didn t get too introspective until the very end Supposedly fiction but imagine it was based on truth.

    Light fun readWas a fun light inspiring read Interesting for me since I often don t read these types of love discovery stories from a male point of view.

    I bought this on a whim for.99 on Totally worth it, one of the best books I ve read this year And the author is an SDSU alumn to boot.

    Good readI liked that it was about a divorce from a man s view really different the man being the one hurt.
