"From the author of the best-selling and universally adored No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series--a stand-alone, big-hearted, and often heartbreaking novel about unrequited love and the unexpected places it takes us. At age 4, Thursday chooses her own name. At age 6, she falls in love with her best friend, James, with whom she happily spends all her time. But in the adult world, things are not so simple: at the same time that Thursday's mother finds she's fallen out of love with her husband, she realizes that James's father is interested in her. As the children grow into adulthood, their connection becomes more complicated as well: James drifts away from Thursday, but she keeps him in her sights: she attends the same college in Scotland and then follows him to London, Sydney, Singapore, rebuilding her life in every city, hoping each time that James will see what he is missing. As Thursday and James, and their parents, navigate their irresistible but baffling mazes of emotion, we are given a beautifully realized tale about how love, even if unrequited, can shape a life"--… (més)

2.5 stars. The story was a disappointment, flat and one-dimensional. The only thing that saved it were his philosophical asides, and even they had very little to work with here. ( )

This is not my favorite book by this author. ( )

I love AMS and was excited to read another.
This one was different to most of his body of work and closer to chick lit in genre. However, his deep understanding of human nature shines through.
Although I got frustrated with Clover's yearning and whinging, I do feel a certain jealousy for fictional characters such as her because they have enough money for everything and can pass their university courses and still find time to work/ socialize/ stalk their prey.
He describes the atmosphere of localities.
I have not been to the Cayman Island group, so I don't know whether to agree that the expats are all money hungry and not in touch with the issues facing the local community.
Nevertheless, I am aware of issues facing 'third culture kids' Clover and James could be labeled by this category.
As an Antipodean I appreciated how he described people from 'down under' as having a default setting of easy-going assurance and awareness that things will be alright.I take that as a compliment for the South Pacific region. ( )
