By A Customer on Sept. 9 2003
Format: Hardcover
As with Host Family and Mail, Medwed writes a light hearted novel with terrific descriptions, scenes, emotions. One again, Medwed doesn't disappoint and there are plenty of creative word-play zingers throughout the book that jump out as unexpected delights and surprises seemingly planted as little nods from the author to those who are culturally literate. Her characters are realistic and amusing. You'll finish the book wishing you had a "Ben", "Simon" and "Marguerite" in your life and I suspect given the care that Ms. Medwed so obviously took when she wrote each word of their dialogues that she has been fortunate enough to know them all.

I read this book on the plane back from London and kept couldn't put it down even as I wove my way through US Customs. I had never heard of Medwed before and just shoved it in my bag before I left. I'm certainly glad I did as it was great fun. I'm now ordering some of her other books and just hope they're as good.

This is a book for anyone who remembers their first love...or perhaps the great unrequited love of their life..and wonders if things could have turned out differently. Even though happily married to our comfortable "Ben", we can't help but recall the more exciting "Simon" in our lives. Having read Medwed's first two books and enjoyed them, I ordered this one, and am so glad I did...it's definitely the best of the three. I simply could not put it down until I discovered how things came out for Lee, the heroine. there is some of Medwed's humor in the book, but its real value is the nostalgia it should evoke in its readers. I'm a senior citizen, and plan to recommend this to my daughter, approaching 40, as well. And I think the Bens and Simons of the world will enjoy it too.

Fans of Mameve Medwed's two other funny and warm novels--Host Family and Mail--definitely will feel thrilled to return to yet another one of her well-written, humorous stories. If you have never read Medwed's novels, you might want to start with The End of An Error, which is about the road not taken--take it and see where main character Lee Emery ends up! Of particular fun in this novel--the exploration of authorship and how it can enrich/ruin/change your life. (If you're interested in this topic, you might want to read two other funny novels that address this subject matter: John Colapinto's About The Author or Christina Schwarz's All is Vanity).

Format: Hardcover
Readers of Medwed's earlier novels -- Mail and Host Family -- will recognize her characteristic witty wordplay and warm, ironic humor. But this is a bigger, deeper book. Lee's yearning for her first love, Simon, is more than just the typical regret of a middle-aged woman for lost youth and missed opportunities. It's a subtle meditation on life's choices and where they lead us. Can we revise our own fates? Should we? Medwed's handling of these questions is always sympathetic, never heavy-handed, and often quite surprising. A lovely, satisfying novel.
