My favorite line from the book was, “The reason wisdom is meant to be imparted is because you acquire it only after it’s too late to apply to yourself”, I also enjoyed this one, “Consequences are a concept for the sober” Jul 05, Joyce rated it it was amazing.

Everything Changes

He is the eldest of three boys, his father, Norm, cheated on his mother, Lela and then he abandoned his family. I also enjoyed the family dynamic and the relatable gropper and feelings.


I thought the characters were much more likable except for Norm, of course and everuthing story flowed much faster. Ostensibly, his life is great — he lives rent-free with his millionaire buddy in New York City, is engaged to the beautiful, intelligent Hope, and has a well-paying job as a consultant. Charged with intelligence and razor sharp wit, Everything Changes is at once hilarious, moving, sexy, and wise—a work of transcendent storytelling from an exciting new talent.

This one is just as guilty of his usual adult boy fantasy world – nice cars, beautiful women, descriptions of whom I always find offensive not to mention surreal, a tug between two to die for woman both of whom, he is surprised, like him, the usual sitcom moments and snappy one liners, the dysfunctional families, everyghing blah blah.

He hates his job; he’s engaged to to a beautiful, adoring woman, yet finds himself hopelessly attracted to his late best friend’s widow; Norm, his eccentric, estranged, Viagra-popping father, suddenly appears after years of separation, wreaking havoc in his wake; and maybe, just maybe, Zack may have bladder cancer.
