    While I enjoyed the content and subject matter of this novel marriage, divorce, relationships in the digital age , I had difficulty with the presentation of it told from a friend of Toby s during most of the book It feltlike a report of things that happened to him instead of the reader being involved So it was slow going for me at the beginning Clearly the author is a talented writer and the pain of divorce and custody arrangements are certainly relevant given the ease and burden While I enjoyed the content and subject matter of this novel marriage, divorce, relationships in the digital age , I had difficulty with the presentation of it told from a friend of Toby s during most of the book It feltlike a report of things that happened to him instead of the reader being involved So it was slow going for me at the beginning Clearly the author is a talented writer and the pain of divorce and custody arrangements are certainly relevant given the ease and burd...

    I started out loving this book. I was captivated by Toby and his family life, his children, his relationship with Rachel I was also fascinated by his career as a hepatologist, and this side story about the woman that needed a liver transplant I have to say at times this novel was very confusing because it would switch into the character of Elizabeth and I wouldn t realize who is narrating the story for part of the book I also felt a drag on a bit in the end, Way too much conversation between I started out loving this book.
