After the breakup of her parents' marriage, teenage Hannah Gavener is shipped off to live with a Philadelphia aunt. Feeling like the divorce refugee that she is, Hannah struggles through her insecurities, seemingly content to live in the shadow of her hip, gorgeous cousin Fig. Later, in sessions with her college psychiatrist, she begins to cope more directly with her problems, but her intense ambivalence about deep relationships persists. Curtis Sittenfeld's The Man of My Dreams presents a central character whose crises and decisions unfold with the hard logic of life. A fine stand-alone follow-up to the author's debut novel, Prep.
I just finished this book over the weekend. I found it very hard to get through and I didn't enjoy it that much. The main character was hard to like and relate to and frankly, I found her a bit annoying.
Now I'm torn about reading the author's next book- Prep. I generally like or don't like an author. I didn't get great vibes about this one.
