So wished you could give half star ratings, because this was a 2.5 star rating for me. For the first few chapters, I found this to be funny, then it just started getting repetitive. Where the book really lost me was with Claire's son Gavin, it was a bit of over kill listening to a four year olds constant use of inappropriate language. It was funny the first few times but after that he became obnoxious. Maybe I just didn't 'hear' the characters 'voices' right because so many others have enjoyed this book so much. Might give it a break before I read the second book.
