Sometimes you want to read something mindless

Where’d You Go Bernadette was a great satire of a particular class of liberal west-coast elites. Today Will Be Different, written by the same author, wants also to be that satire. Alas, it is not.

It’s a fine book that tells a fun story about a woman who suspects her husband of cheating on her, and who wishes her family life was different. But it isn’t art, and it’s not particularly insightful.

Which isn’t to say it’s bad. It’s not. It’s just kind of a mindless read. If that’s what you want? This is your book.
