About book The Uncoupling (2011)

I like Meg Wolitzer's writing style and I thought this an interesting premise for a book (ie the women of a community all become repulsed by the idea of sex and turn away from their partners/husbands/lovers/boyfriends). Mostly I mildly liked it but when it got to part 3 it took a large downward dip and I couldn't care less about what happened anymore. Seemed bizarrely like a fairy-tale mixed up with conptemporary literature and it just didn't work for me. This book seemed like a good story idea, but I just did not like this book. I kept trying to like it, kept hoping that the magic spell that swept the town leaving the women not ever wanting sex again was more than what I predicted from the first chapter, but it wasn't. I couldn't really love any of the characters. And the ending, where Wolitzer was trying to imply that excitement in sex should be valued more than familiarity and devotion in a relationship, just left a bad taste in my mouth. I'm leary to try any more of her books after this one.

Do You like book The Uncoupling (2011)?

This seemed much more likely to be the magic realism of Alice Hoffman than a novel by Meg Wolitzer.

I guess Meg Wolitzer doesn't have a perfect record. I had to quit this one after a few chapters.

I didn't love it as much as The Wife and The Interestings, but I appreciated the premise.

Stupid concept. Kept reading in hopes it'd get better. It did not.

Silly but enjoyable.
