Review: READY TO FALL by Claire Cook

Where can a 40-ish woman turn when her marriage has gone stale and her kids treat her like an unpaid chauffeur? In Beth Riordan’s case, it’s to cyberspace. She takes a zany romp with love through wry, revelatory emails to Thomas, her handsome neighbor in a New England suburb, a travel writer in the middle of a divorce. In this witty tale of marriage and midlife longing, a taken-for-granted wife pursues a fantasy love via e-mail--like a "Bridget Jones's Diary" gone suburban, 40-ish, and wired.

My thoughts: The plot wasn’t all that interesting to me, but I tried to give it a shot anyway. Then I found that the whole story is written in emails. Ugh! That did it for me.

My rating: 1 star
