Toby Fleishman is recently separated and discovering the glories of internet dating, sexting and casual sex. He feels deeply wronged by his ex who suddenly goes off the grid, leaving him to negotiate summer and school holidays and sex without her.
I picked this up because I’d heard it was extremely good, and in all honesty, I loved the cover. As I read it, I felt somewhat uncomfortable with the way the story was being told. There was Toby who seemed to be a super unreliable narrator, and an old college friend who seemed like a confusion to the mix. And then I got to the last section and everything seemed to fit into place. The last section took it from a good but somewhat unsatisfying read to a work of brilliance which I absolutely loved.
