“Crazy, Stupid, Love meets Notting Hill. About an actress making it big and the complicated relationship she has with the guy she met as a teenager. You’ll read it in two days” —The Skimm
Their meeting in a parking lot outside a high school football game was both completely forgettable and utterly life-changing. Because no matter how you look at it, it is piss-poor luck to meet the love of your life before your life has even started. Fierce and ambitious, Alison transforms into a rising TV star in New York City while her first love, Kyle, all heart and spiritual yearning, becomes a pediatrician in suburban Cincinnati, married to the wrong woman. What could these mismatched souls have to do with each other? Everything and nothing. Even as their fates rocket them forward and apart, neither can fully let go of the past.
As their lives inevitably intersect, Alison and Kyle must face each other in the revealing light of their decisions. I’m Glad About You is a glittering study of how far the compromises two people make will take them from the lives they were meant to live.
From the Hardcover edition.
I am an avid reader and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I would highly recommend it!
If you ignore all the accolades about the author and blindly read the story then for me it's about unimportant self obsessed characters. The same old middle class cowardice unable to have the strength of character to live a moral and ethical life without constant whining. It's a depressing story about unfulfilled human spirit and potential. It feels like a homework writing assignment.
I enjoyed this book
I was looking for a book I could read quickly over vacation. This was a good fit - I enjoyed the characters and hearing their points of view. I'll stop there so as not to spoil the story.
