There is so much I love about this book. Ms. Parker has a deft hand with dialogue, making it feel both current and witty. I found myself smiling while reading this, and frequently laughing out loud. Most importantly, it all felt real. I liked that Richard and Lainie’s feelings for each other develop in a slow, believably way. I cared for Lainie from the first. Despite being on stage, Lainie feels like a real, normal person, from her large family, to taking the tube to work, to pet-setting for her neighbor’s cat, Cat Richard as she thinks of him. And no, Richard isn’t a “misunderstood” bad boy. He truly does act poorly, thinks most people are morons, and definitely has a short fuse. Despite all that, I found him funny, and gradually endearing as more was revealed about his background and motivations, and as he fell deeply in love with Lainie.
