review 1: This book really isn't ABOUT anything, in the way that books are supposed to be about something. The characters are only half developed. I knew I wanted to both hate them and love them (my favorite kind of characters) but could never figure out why and just ended up feeling embarrassed for them.

Overall, I think this could have been an excellent book if not for the flaws in execution. less

Okay. Why are these two even friends? Why for the love of God do they remain friends? Bored now.
Good book about roles of women in the sixties and seventies.
Really good, except the entire first section.
Well written story of a long,term friendship.
