Plan B by Jonathan Tropper


I've been reading a lot of Jonathan Tropper lately. I'll admit it. I really enjoyed This is Where I Leave You so much that I've purchased his entire bibliography of works. I have not yet enjoyed one of them as much as This is Where I Leave You, however they all have been enjoyable in their own way, just not as amazingly perfect as that one book.

This was a perfect book for me to read, here at the start of my 29th year, the last year of my twenties. Plan B is the tale of four friends from college who are all now 29 or recently 30 and coming to grips with not being the person they thought they would be at 30. It caused me to ask myself a lot of questions -like who did I want to be when I was 30? Am I happy with the person I am here, on the verge of 30? I'm still pondering a lot of these questions.

As usual, the characters were very real and their dialogue was extremely well-written. I have a hard time understanding why no one has purchased this book to turn into a movie, it would make a good one, especially given some of the subject matter in the book - though I won't give it away.

I will definitely recommend this book, although I wouldn't call it a 5 Star book. It was definitely a good read. Next, I'm re-reading The Help by Kathryn Stockett for my book club, which I'm very much looking forward to.
