An interesting case study of a divorce, particularly the legal and financial aspects. This might also have been a good novel, if the author had focused on the divorcing family. Instead, she stuffed the book with distracting sub-plots about the lawyer -- a twenty-something woman, struggling to come to grips with her family, office politics and boyfriend. Too bad. It didn't have to be chick-lit. .

Loved it! Highbrow chick-lit. The feel of this book: a Bridget Jones type grows up, gets rich, gets dumped, gets bitter and wants revenge while her quirky, young lawyer cleans up the big mess despite problems and drama of her own. Told entirely through memos, legal articles, reports, letters and emails which makes it a fast, breezy, page-turner. A fun look at wealth and angst in New York.
