    What a wonderful read The bizarre interconnections of a small group of people and their emotional lives are explored in this delicious dramedy of manners I had the urge to create a chart detailing all the relationships Ordinarily, one can point to a catalyst, but there are several catalytic agents at work propelling the plot Was it the relationship between Rachel and Zahid, her professor Was it the decamping of the pater familias to his mistress Was it Becca s vulnerability after losing he What a wonderful read The bizarre interconnections of a small group of people and their emotional lives are explored in this delicious dramedy of manners I had the urge to create a chart detailing all the relationships Ordinarily, one can point to a catalyst, but there are several catalytic agents at work propelling the plot Was it the relationship between Rachel and Zahid, her professor Was it the decamping of the pater familias to his mistress Was it Becca s vulnerability after losing her husband and her dog I won t even begin to analyze all the relationships, coincidences and connections, but trust me, this is a great read Denansky does a great job in allowing each character to have a voice in this novel I loved them all, maybe not Jonathan, who left his wife This technique allowed the reader to understand each of the characters, and feel sympathetic towards each one I was absolutely mesmerized by this novel I loved the absurdi...

    In this engaging novel, we hear from a variety of interconnected characters Rachel has a crush on her professor and decides to make a move But her mother Becca also has eyes for him This book was very simply written but it worked I liked all of the characters as well as how the book moved.

    I liked the dog That s about it There was no redeeming qualities to any of the characters presented The liberal overtones were completely unnecessary and basically made the characters evenridiculous But maybe that was the point The dog I liked the dog.

    This is one that I must discuss with others I d liken it to The Catcher in the Rye meets The Great Gatsby with an Ice Storm American Beauty vibe.

    Perfectly fine, light, fast paced beach read, but I felt perpetually distracted by the heaps of virtue signaling in the narration Maybe that was meant to redeem the characters, but it feltlike the author gesturing at issues and wanting to be rel...

    Cringe inducing Every single character is horrendously selfish not a single one of them worth rooting for The story is non existent, since it s basically just an exploration of people s myopic self centeredness and don t even get me started on that ending ridiculous Dermansky s writing is a bit uneven, and in the beginning, especially during Rachel s chapters, the sentences are stupidly short The only redeeming quality for me was that this was a fast read so I got it over with qu Cringe inducing Every single character is horrendously selfish not a si...

    Crazy ending Loved the way the characters came together in the end and made the story whole What a rollercoaster ride I just went on Recommend to anyone who loves drama and scandal with a light side to it.

    Marcy Dermansky s forthcoming novel, VERY NICE, is a tangled web of longing, lazing, and attempted adulting With five narrators, none of which fits the traditional mold of likeable or hero, the plot moves forward with passionate detail and disparate loyalties The novel is marketed as a beach read, but its complex themes and deeply developed characters demand a wider definition and year round attention VERY NICE s satirical take on tony suburbs and trudging academia is at once harsh and appr Marcy Dermansky s forthcoming novel, VERY NICE, is a tangled web of longing, lazing, and attempted adulting With five narrators, none of which fits the traditional mold of likeable or hero, the plot moves forward with passionate detail and disparate loyalties The novel is marketed as a beach read, but its complex themes and deeply developed characters demand a wider definition and year round attention VERY NICE s satirical take on tony suburbs and trudging academia is at once...
