Toby Fleishman is recently separated, over 40, heading for divorce, and living on his own for the first time in ages. Unlike in his younger days he finds casual sex extremely easy to obtain, mainly due to the modern phenomenon of dating apps. His newly found way of life is disrupted when his wife disappears and he is left trying to balance his new life, taking care of his children, and attempting to find his wife.

This is a promising sounding summary but I struggled with this one. The writing is fine and the plot doesn't really go anywhere but the thing that really spoiled it for me was the fact that I hated every single character. They are all self obsessed bores with first world problems and I just don't get the praise that this book gets. ( )

A solid meh.

A reviewer of this book said it reminded her of the great novels of the 60s and 70s that John Updike or Philip Roth might have written. Being a fan of both of those authors, I thought "Great, let's give it a shot!" Unfortunately, I hated this book, only made it to page 50 before giving up, and cursed the narrator of the story, some female who was apparently a college classmate of the title character. I couldn't figure out why she was narrating Fleishman's story and found her involvement annoying and confusing. I suppose I should have given this book more of a chance, but I just couldn't get into it and didn't feel like struggling with it any further. ( )

This. Hit. Hard. Clever, yes, but also due to where I am. Which, not sure what to think about _that_. ( )

The portraits of marriage and differing points of view were interesting. However, I didn't particularly like anyone. I liked Toby until he was being described by the Libby, I didn't see that he was selfish until that moment. I did enjoy the changes in narration subjects, I thought that was clever. ( )

Many of its 373-pages seemed like padding, much of which consists of… sex.
Or sexting.
Or thinking about sex.
Or thinking about sexting.

Toby Fleishman awoke one morning inside the city he'd lived in all his adult life and which was suddenly somehow now crawling with women who wanted him.
