The reason I couldn't rate it higher than three stars is that I was constantly frustrated with the characters. Kate was way too fixated on Nick's "hotness". Looks eventually fade over time, I feel like way too much was made about his beautiful body and overall sexiness. And I was really frustrated by Nick's utter lack of communication skills. If he really didn't want a divorce he really went about it the wrong way. TALK TO YOUR WIFE! I realize Kate wasn't the easiest person to talk to, but he never once just said, "I don't want a divorce and I'll do whatever it takes to work this out".
The way things worked out at the end made me roll my eyes a little. After years of nothing, then just wham! Hmmm...
The writing was beautiful and so honest and heartfelt. Anyone who has been married or even in a long term committed relationship should be able to relate to this book to some degree.
Kate & Nick have been married for 7 years and their marriage is at that point where they fight about everything and they don’t even like each other anymore. After another explosive fight, they decide to separate. Mostly by Kate’s suggestion.
You’re for real? You really don’t want to try at this anymore?”
“I have been trying! What do you think I’ve been doing for the past seven years? I’ve been trying every single day. And it’s not enough. It’s never enough! I can’t keep doing this day in and day out. I can’t keep pretending that things are okay and then falling apart every time we start arguing. Nick, I’m exhausted in my bones. You’re a good person, but it’s like… it’s like I bring out the absolute worst in you. And the same is true about me! I’m fun. I’m a really fun person. People like me! All of the people except you. And I don’t blame you! When we’re together I’m a nag and I’m ungrateful and I’m just…ugly. And I hate that person. I hate the person that I am with you. And I hate the person that you are…”
By the next morning, Nick was gone. Kate spends the next few months trying to hold herself together and counting the reasons that they’re wrong for each other. He hates her parents. They’re better without each other. He misses the dog, but not her. He doesn’t understand her. Etc. Nick spends the next few months trying to work through this in his way. The story is told in Kate’s POV so it’s hard to know what Nick’s doing when he isn’t around….but halfway in you start to realize that he does in fact want to fight for their marriage, and from looking at other reviews, I realize I am not alone in wanting to shake Kate and get her to see this!! “See Kate!! He’s working on it! He loves you!!” But being a Kate myself, I understood. It’s hard to think, “Ok, so he fixed some problems we had, let’s get back together and everything will be hunky dory again.” Because what if it isn’t?? When you’re exhausted to your bones you just don’t think there is a fix for it. You’re just sure that you’re not right for each other even when your body and your heart tells you that maybe you are.
If I left this man, would I ever find another body so suited to mine? We were like puzzle pieces in the way we came together. And I didnt’ know if I would ever fit into another puzzle.
Maybe I didn’t want to.
There were so many other variables in the story. They didn’t have kids, but they had a dog. They had a house and cars and Nick was pulling out all the stops to make this divorce totally impossible. He just didn’t want to let go!! But would it be enough?? Would they ever be able to work things out or start fresh separately?
Seriously. This book sucked me in and made me cry and really made me look at my sometimes rocky marriage with new eyes, thank you for that Rachel! I definitely felt like I was experiencing (again, this book was in my head!) this whole ordeal with Kate and Nick. The supporting characters were wonderful. Kate’s friends and parents and fellow teachers. They were developed very well and really added to the story. There’s so much truth in the midst of a divorce. You’ve got the friends encouraging it and the friends who absolutely disapprove of it usually right? Kate’s friends were great to support her decision yet let her know that it’s okay to keep trying. It’s okay that she still loves him. It’s okay that this is hard, it’s going to be hard. But it will be okay. There were some laughs and smiles and lots of tears. I definitely recommend this book to anyone in a serious relationship or even if you’ve been the friend of someone going through a divorce at all. It’s a really true account of how different marriage can be and the emotions you go through in the midst of making one of the hardest decisions of your life.
I know there are people who can't understand where Kate was coming from, but I could identify a lot with her.
I definitely recommend!
First of all the first half of the book Kate was annoying and blaming Nick for their marriage not working out and her wanting to get a divorce. She wasn't mature at all and I felt her reasons for divorcing him were stupid. Does she eventually get her head out of her butt? Yes but very towards the end. I wish this book would have had dual POV instead of dealing with a whiny h. I did like the ending but I felt like it needed an epilogue to make up for them being separated and miserable for most of the book. But like I said half of the book made me want to get inside and knock some sense into Kate. I did love that Nick didn't give up on her and I liked him giving her a hard time too. In the end they got their HEA which is good but if she would have ended up alone she would have deserved it for being a brat.
Any married person knows that life throws fast balls, curve balls, no balls - marriage is work, marriage is a sacrifice...and yet so many allow themselves to get into the rut and not make it out alive and happily married.
I was so afraid for Nick and Kate. I was a wreck thinking what is going to happen next. I was terrified that someone else was going to step in for the other.
This book left me on the edge of my seat and I read it in one sitting, not being able to put it down.
