Review by jolzyn
This is an interesting book to read. The way the author narrate the story with its main character tell their side of story in each chapter is very unique and is very well written. The book basically tells the story of the aftermath dissappearance of Charlie; on how Shelley and their kids deal with his absence, and having to stay with his mother; Vera. There was subplot in the main story where Caroline, supposely to be Charlie's mistress keeps her presence known and the other women with a kid; Annika whom Charlie choose to be. At first, i really thought Charlie is a playboy what with Caroline and Annika in the picture and the way their story was told by themselves in the chapter, one would not have resist but assume on their real relationship. ;)Overall, i find this book very exciting to read and the author's writing refreshing!
