Review of Open HouseBy Elizabeth Berg I am an avid reader.The type of person who can wipe out a good book in a day or two.
For the past several months my only reading has been my textbooks.So I was excited sitting down and reading a book just for pleasure.A girlfriend of mine had given me this book and said she enjoyed it.Plus it was a selection of the Oprah book club.Surely Oprah wouldn't steer me wrong.

It's Friday night.I am in my room, settled down with everything I need for a night of reading.I actually managed to finish this book with about six to seven hours. This would lead you to believe this was one of those books that you couldn't put down.Unfortunately this was not true.I was sadly glad to just be through it. The story is about a women named Samantha, and the experiences she has during her separation and divorce.While there was a minimal amount in the story that I could relate to,feeling she has been living what her husband and son wanted her to be.
She has to find herself and her own way now. For the most part the story was totally not what real life is about.While I would have liked to have spent the days after my spouse moving out overcharging at Tiffany's.
Then the story switches to problems with money.She wanted to charge him out at Tiffany's then suddenly wants to make it on her own.Yet is real slow at looking for a job. When her husband is described as extremely wealthy, yet they didn't live that way.Ok.
So Samantha takes in borders.The first one was an older woman who's daughter works at the grocery store.How many of us when looking for a roommate would actually choose a woman in her 60's. Samantha needed to roll her Mom's advice with the old womans example.Because Grandma had a boyfriend.
They dated, she spent the night with him.Samantha actually lies in this woman's bed one night and thinking what their lovemaking must be like. Samantha does make a male friend in the story.His name was King. He was the moving man who delivered the roommates funiture.He stopped by a few days.
