I finished this book about a month ago, while I was on holiday and I really enjoyed it. The different lives of the characters mean you're never bored with just one storyline, and every one is easy to relate to. The book is realistic, funny, sad in places (read with kleenex) and leaves you feeling that maybe the world isnt such a bad place after all. Although the characters are all in their late twenties, or thirty-something, and I'm about a decade behind them, I totally identified with their men-worries, etc. If you need a girly pick-me-up, I recommend it.
