just finished reading...

Interesting premise--following the lives of Dexter and Emma from their university years on through twenty years. Each chapter visits them on the same day and we get to see their lives unfold. There are great secondary characters but the story rests with Dex and Em, Em and Dex.

I was more interested and drawn to Dexter's epic rise and fall than Emma's timid girl becoming a self-confident, secure woman although I really enjoyed Emma. When one's up, the other's down. And that is what I didn't like about the book. It felt predictable although there is a twist at the end, which I will not give away.

I know some people are raving about this novel. I'm not.
