Book Review: The Man of my Dreams by Curtis Sittenfeld
Hannah's life is filled with complicated relationships. Her father is as stubborn as she is, her cousin Fig is gorgeous and fun, but her misbehavious has always affected Hannah's life as well, Henry, Figs college boyfriend, who catches Hannah's attention, and all the boyfriends Hannah has, who love her, adore her, or break her heart. At her late twenties, after all the disappointments in her love life, Hannah learns what she wants. Bu does she have the courage to go after it?
This was such as good book. It is filled with great characters who by their personalities and actions build up the story. The plot moves nicely and smootly. The Man of my Dreams is filled with honesty and humor and it tells how our personal choices and acts in life affect ourselves and others. Can Hannah find what she wants, or is she ready to settle down to something lesser?
I really loved PREP by Curtis Sittenfeld and I must say that I enjoyed this one almost as much as I enjoyed PREP. This is a nice, light read I recommend to everyone. So if you see this somewhere, you should check it out!
