The Uncoupling - Meg Wolitzer Ugh. What a pointless and repetitive book. At first I tried to give it the benefit of the doubt, feeling that it was unfortunate that I had just previously read Tom Perotta's wonderful novel, THE LEFTOVERS. Both are stories of suburban strife caused by a supernatural event, but this book just got worse and worse and the lame ending made me want to throw my library copy across the room. See Judy Krueger's review for a better explanation, which perfectly explains why this book is terrible.
