  1. Brilliant review! This did not work for me, although I found it a quite compelling read on the scenes about their relationship – the ending was very anticlimactic and kind of ruined the story for me. I did love the way you talk about emotional vs physical pain, and it’s definitely something this book discussed in an interesting way.

  2. Great review!! The complex characterizations of Lucy and Jake, and the exploration of physical vs. emotional pain, are both huge selling points for me. I’ll be sure to keep my expectations in check when I read this now!!

  3. I considered reading Hunter’s debut, but eventually decided to pass, and I think I’ll pass on this one as well – I’ve read a couple of lukewarm reviews and the premise just doesn’t feel original enough for me (kind of like her debut!) Thanks for the useful review 🙂

  5. Great review! My reaction was quite similar (esp. regarding the ending which did not work for me either) but I was ultimately so impressed with how real the parts about motherhood felt that I rated it higher. I think the book came to me at the absolute perfect time.
