Say When (Elizabeth Berg)

An OK book. I feel a little about Berg like I do about Piccoult. In her case she takes a domestic situation (usually a divorce or other problem) and tells a LONG story about it. I guess I am beginning to need something wtih more action? I don't know.

I did like the idea of the main character being male - interesting perspective on divorce, certainly. I didn't reallly like the portrayal of the wife. It seems like she was characterized as a little crazy or immature because she wanted more than monotony.

A little research reveals it was made into a TV movies, which I can totally see. Like the idea of the main character playing Santa, though it didn't really gel as an action he would take.

Overall: C.
