Sintesi dell'editore

Voluptuous, sensuous, alluring, and fun. Barely 40 DWF seeks special man to share starlit nights. Must love dogs.

Life after divorce for Sarah Hurlihy consists of juggling her job as a preschool teacher and the demands of her interfering family. Then her bossy big sister decides to place a personal ad for her, and the unexpected becomes a daily event. Everybody wants Sarah to put the past behind her and take a bold step towards a fresh start. But when Sarah winds up with a lot of new men and rambunctious dogs in her life, along with plenty of awkward situations, unexpected emotions, and not-so-easy decisions, she wonders whether those mindless evenings sitting alone and watching The Brady Bunch were really so bad.

©2002 Claire Cook (P)2005 Blackstone Audiobooks

"[A] surprising, touching, and hilariously deadpan debut novel." (Publishers Weekly) "[A] tart slice-of-the-single-life worth reading....Breezy first-person narration makes this a fast paced, humorous diversion." (Publishers Weekly)
"[A] laugh-out-loud novel....A light and lively read for anyone who has tried to reenter the dating scene or tried to 'fix up' somebody else." (Boston Herald)

must love the movie

I really wanted to like this book. Turns out I like the idea of the book more than the book itself. Time and again I found myself rolling my eyes at Sarah's behaviour. She just doesn't really seem to have much passion for life and I can't imagine her ever having it even before her divorce. She even admits that she never would have left her husband but just stayed in her unhappy life because that is what is expected. And you can imagine her doing just that time and again for the rest of her life. If the author's point was to show 'boring girl next door gets guy despite herself' she has succeeded. We really don't learn anything about most of the characters and the ones we do learn about aren't really the interesting ones. The novel is fun, just not very involving. I like something I can sink my teeth into - this is not it. Go see the movie instead.

Did not age well, Feels incomplete

Aspects of this story did NOT age well. Newspaper ads, answering machines and cassette tapes. Belly button ring? Scandelous! Yes, Sara is supposed to be the "cool aunt", but even a cool aunt shouldn't allow teens to smoke.

Parts feel superfluous - lengthy discussion about cleaning up blood in the classroom and the cultural lessons Sara does in her class. (Yawn.)

The characters feel flat to me. Sara talks about being sad but it's more tell than show. The family is supposed to be big and supportive, but they just seem annoying and lack boundaries. John is unlikable and a liar. (Actually, both lie about actually owning dogs. 😒) What's the appeal? Sara is only vaguely attractedto him and treats him like a consolation prize when the other losers don't work out.

This is NOT a stand alone novel. It ends on an annoying cliff hanger with a bunch of stupid family drama. (I don't care about Mike and Phoebe. Even a little.) There's tons of these books. Sigh.

Go watch the movie.

The narration is solid.

Boring fluff!

This is the story of a woman trying to get on with her life after a divorce prior to when the story begins. It tries to be topical and contemporary, but after a while one realizes who cares? It tries to be funny, doesn't work. Should it appeal to women rather than men? Maybe. Bottom line: don't give this dust bunny very high priority!

Movie better than book

I found myself skipping to end of chapters. Story moves slowly. Not the best audiobook to listen to right after finishing the Jane Austen collection.

Not sure who this was written for.

The voice actress and the written voice seem too old for the character age. The main character is too bitter and jaded. This book wasn't interesting to me.

Sweet, funny, romantic, and hopeful!

Such a great story! Highly recommend!

Not sure if the writer had John Cusack in mind when she wrote the story, but, man, was he the correct actor to play John in the book! I would have pictured him even if I hadn’t see the movie before reading.

Better than expected

I have not seen this movie so the book was a fresh experience for me. I enjoyed it very much. A light and easy listen. I kept waiting for something awful to happen. The father having health issues, the terrible destructive divorce. Nothing. Just folks living life. Refreshing.

Cute story

Interesting story,,,made me laugh and I can relate to some of her escapades!!! Loved the big family dynamics. From the title I really thought she had a dog herself.. but at least her brother did…loved the dogs name… “Mother Teresa”….
The narrator was amazing!! Voices were consistent with each character, and she did a great job on the male voices!! They all sounded different!

Must love dogs

I enjoyed reading this book, but it really didn't make me excited about the story.

ok, but nothing special

easy listening, but not very exciting. I wouldn't look for other books by the same author
