Henry & Me Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

“I was housekeeping staff at the Four Seasons in LA briefly.” Ha, that was a nightmare. Cleaning and I are mortal enemies, and will remain so for the rest of my life. But I can’t say that to Henry, so I modify the truth a little. “My boss constantly praised the high standard of my work, so you have nothing to worry about there.” It’s thanks to my acting ability that I pull that lie off so easily. In reality, my boss at the Four Seasons fired me because I always left the rooms messier than I found them. But hell, this is an interview, and a little embellishment is standard. It’s not like I’m an inveterate liar or anything.
He proceeds to give me a tour of the house, explaining where all the cleaning equipment and supplies are stored, and giving me pointers on the way he likes things to be organized. I brought a notepad along, so I take exhaustive notes (actually I doodle his face).
“I’m not a maid,” I clarify. “I’m a domestic helper and child-care expert.” I got those words from the internet, when I was watching a YouTube video on how to do laundry. They make me sound infinitely more professional, so I’ll use them.
You know what they say about judging a book by its cover. Henry might look boring, like historical fiction, but he’s actually an erotica novel.
I adored this cleverly amusing book from start to finish. While I didn’t always love the characters because, well, there were times that Max was an obnoxious, vain, arrogant, and self-absorbed diva, but regardless, Max never failed to hold my attention and she did redeem herself. Henry and his quirky and precocious nephew Lucien were hands-down my favorite characters. But oh, how the mighty had fallen… After years of humiliating and harsh doses of reality, Max gave up on her dreams and was not the same narcissistic person she had been in college. Written from a first person POV of Max, the writing quality was top notch, I was well established in Max’s head and was highly entertained by her colorful inner musings and humorous observations. The plot was fresh and entertaining and the storyline was crisp, amusing, insightful, and clever. This was my first experience reading Ms. Clinton’s work and I quickly rose to the level of fangirl admiration before concluding the first chapter. I frequently smirked, chortled, gasped and giggle snorted, although there were also several heart-squeezing and angsty moments in between her bumbling misadventures.
It didn’t take me long before I truly wanted to hate Max. She seemed to have the “I’m so much better than you” attitude. She’s definitely someone who would look down on me. If it weren’t for Henry and his nephew, I probably would have given up on her – as a lot of other people did. The times I liked her most was when she spent time with Lucien. I wouldn’t say he was a scene stealer but more of a scene enhancer.
Through the whole story, Max had me confused. Some of it might be the fact that in a way she’s confused too. Life isn’t cut and dry, it doesn’t come with a manual, and some people have to have things happen to them in order to learn what works and what we have to work on. We sometimes hold ourselves back because we’re afraid – afraid of the unknown. And life is the biggest unknown of them all. What makes Max is a good character is that she shows how really tough it is to learn.
Henry was great at showing perseverance. Although at times I felt he could do better and he was too good a man to go through the heartache but this is what makes this story so romantic. He had to be my favorite character with his nephew a close second. One thing the author does is show her readers that you don’t need a lot of sex in a story to have romance. But you do need the right male character for that to happen and she does have that here.
There were times that I really wanted to hate this story. Max just continually rubbed me the wrong way. But she has a sister-in-law that had me laughing. She was a great compliment to Max. The Epilogue made up for a lot of my feelings that I was having up to that point because it shows the reason that I kept on reading. Left me glad that I didn’t give up on her. Personally I like a story that somehow gets me involved – it’s one thing that keeps me turning the pages. I also like to see that second chances are possible when it comes to love.
