I'm always reading something, usually multiple books at a time.
I could have sworn I already wrote a review of this. I can't even recall when I listened to it, but I actually listened to it twice, having forgotten when I downloaded the audiobook the second time, that I had. Then it started to come back to me bit by bit, and I found myself thinking, "Oh, is this the one where the female protagonist reads Newsweek to 'shop for an opinion'?" (Answer: Yes. But this comes way late in the narrative.) And I'm not even sure why I listened all the way through a second time, except I guess I was surprised at how much I'd forgotten and wanted to see what came back to me.
I'll say that I am generally a fan of dark humor, but this was so dark that for me, it crossed out of what could be considered humorous. The two main characters are a divorcing couple who are each glad when they believe their spouse has died in the 9/11 attacks (he worked in the WTC but made it out alive; she was supposed to be on one of the planes but never boarded). I can understand that divorce can breed animosity, but to wish the other dead--really? And then their whole divorce drama was, I guess, supposed to become a metaphor of terrorism, or vice versa. And to make things uglier were a couple of scenes that I will hide behind spoiler tags.
I am actually on the fence as to whether I should one-star this book. But I did stick with it not just once, but twice. I guess that's enough to elevate it from "poor" to "fair." But I wouldn't exactly recommend this book to anyone. At the very least, if you are finding yourself curious (or are a 9/11-lit completest), I'd strongly suggest that you not spend any money obtaining this book. Library all the way, baby.
