    • This book was entirely not what I expected it to be Based on the synopsis I expected in the way of multiverses and the experiences Amy would have as a guinea pig to Donny in his experiment This has been a subject that has always fascinated me How many different lives could you be living what if you had made different decisions what would your life be like now While this book did touch on that, I felt it was not the focus at all during my read, which was disappointing.There are a lo This book was [...]


    • It was a cowardly move, he knew, but he was a coward.As has already been established here on , I was a big fan of Schulman s novel P.S. but was underwhelmed by the recent This Beautiful Life Initially, to my dismay, Come with Me seemed to have a lot in common with the latter book Privileged white straight middle aged married couple wife in a constant state of feeling put upon, husband completely clueless in the emotional intelligence department, teenage son depressin [...]

    • This book tested my patience On the one hand, I didn t enter into it with any expectations Unlike some, I wasn t really sure how much the multiverse aspect would play into the story so I wasn t disappointed when it took a backseat to the marital discord of Amy and Dan However, there was also a lot here that felt like too much information for the sake of filling pages.I didn t need a play by play of all the ways in which a marriage can fall to the wayside Nor was I interested in the far too c Thi [...]


    • I d prefer not to end a strong reading week on a negative note, but have you ever read a book that feels like a case of false advertising As in, if you had paid for it you would have demanded a full refund That s how I feel about Come With Me Here s the synopsis Amy Reed works part time as a PR person for a tech start up, run by her college roommate s nineteen year old son, in Palo Alto, California Donny is a baby genius, a junior at Stanford in his spare time His play for fortune [...]
