American Wife

Looks like another crappy book by author Curtis Sittenfeld (Prep, The Man of My Dreams). You can read the review (sort of) of her latest due out in September from Radar Magazine. Apparently it's a thinly veiled shot at historical/biographical fiction.

Did anyone else enjoy Prep or The Man of My Dreams? I think a lot of people got all excited because of the title of her first book and that grosgrain belt for the jacket image (I was sucked in by it) but I really thought it was horrible. The second book wasn't much better so I am definitely NOT reading this one.

I definitely agree about Prep. It just didn't do it for me :(

I read Prep. I didn't like the main character. All her life she wanted to go to an elite boarding school and she went out of her way not to fit in. I thought that was strange.

the cover got me too but I was completely disenchanted by it.

I started Prep and got about 1/3 through when I decided it was blah. I did see a traveler in the airport this week who was reading it.
