5.0 out of 5 stars Relationships ring true in stunning debut novel, 24 Feb. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Take One Young Man (Paperback)
Ms. Kelley has done what very few first (or second, third, etc.) time novelists manage to achieve nowadays: The relationships between her characters ring true, they are honest and touching. Surrounding that core is a very funny, entertaining and affecting story. I am heartily embarassed to admit that I cried twice, was surprised on more than one occasion, and felt my jaded approach to modern fiction confounded at every turn. No pathetic attempt to be hip here (a la 'Bridget Jones'), no derivative and nouveau stylistic mistakes either (a la everyone else). Just a refreshing and wonderful read. I cannot recommend it more enthusiastically.
