I repeatedly found my mind drifting away while listening to this, as it always does when I’m bored. This is one of those books which you go through without really understanding, hoping that there will be a big punchline in the end. Well, there was none.
In fact, I’m not even sure why it’s been dubbed a novel. Does a series of loosely connected short stories with NO character build-up whatsoever and American-centered humor here and there justify that title? I feel cheated :(
Unless all you want is cheap grins, don’t waste your time. Perhaps the book is trying to say that in love it’s not what you do but how you do it (hence the title), but that’s not good enough an answer to my “What’s the point?!” question.
