Book News

This book is getting a lot of press lately. Some sources say that it will be the book most women will read this summer but I disagree, Oprah hasn't selected her book yet.

Entertainment Weekly gave this book a C+ while USA Today gave it a good review:

"In The Man of My Dreams, Sittenfeld gets inside the man-obsessed motives that strike some women in their late teens and 20s.

The result: Dreams could be the women's novel of the summer, the one they talk about, dissect, analyze and compare with their own experiences.

In this insightful book, Sittenfeld asks: Does every woman deserve a soul mate?

Modern women might cringe at a story about a young woman who, for most of this novel, is looking for the perfect man.

Despite the title, Dreams is no frothy tale of looking for love. Hannah Gavener, Sittenfeld's protagonist, is no chick-lit chick. She's not perky, pretty and effervescent. She's plain, obstinate and sometimes very hard to like."
