In Her Shoes

In Her Shoes : A Novel

Author: Jennifer Weiner

* * * * *

While I really enjoyed Weiner’s other novel, Good in Bed, this one frustrated me – for the bulk of the book everyone’s following their own agenda, and all three main characters are leading completely separate lives. Then, with little subtlety, and far too little substance, a happy ending is engineered, just in time to meet the required page-count for a chick-lit novel.

Chick-lit can be delicious escapist reading. In Her Shoes, is not it.
