I gave this book a 2 out 4 rating. I was really engrossed in the book until about the time Sue and Mike met. I thought in the beginning the author touched on many different aspects of dating and found the author's story line entertaining. I guess my biggest disappointment was I did not care for Sue and Mike's relationship. I liked both these characters, but found there dialogue between each other uneventful.

Hahahahahhah. I picked up this book thinking that it was going to be weird because of the title. It was actually funny and I laughed throughout the whole time. 4/4!

I think this book as engaging enough with the less explored themes of love in later stages of life, and the characters were involving enough too, however, the story could have been developed because there was this constant feeling that there is something amiss in the storyline.

I found the book very good! As a younger woman it was interesting to see the point of view from an older charcter. It was emotional, and at times even heartbreaking. Love and loss are one in the same. I rated the book 3 of 4 stars.

I'm sixteen, and I didn't have a problem reading about older people, but I really did not like the sex scenes. But to be fair, I generally don't like reading/hearing about sex between people my own age, so I'm actually not sure why I decided to read a book with "list" in the title in the first place. I ended up just skipping all sex scenes, but I wasn't able to finish the book, it just made me feel uncomfortable.
So many books to read, so little time..

I have read almost one third of the book, and its quite engaging till now. I think the pace could have been a bit faster, but otherwise quite an interesting book.

The title alone is enough to put me off. I think I'll give this one a miss :D

Latest Review: "The Deserving" by Efren O'brien

Post by Naval Aulakh » 09 Jul 2017, 07:36

I think it would be a decent perused. . It talks about genuine misfortune and awfulness, fizzled connections, and that it is so hard to try and discover a relationship as we age. It's additionally exceptionally straightforward about the passionate, as well as the physical side of connections in a way that is much more legit than uncouth. Nonetheless, the written work style was intense for me to take after. It appeared to wander a great deal, which started to baffle me as I read. I give it 3 stars out of 4.
