This was a quick read that kept me busy on an airplane and keeping my interest on a plane is hard to do since I am a nervous flyer. There is a lot of humor and sly references about writing and life in general. I liked the characters of Laura and Charlie, but thought Charlie was a bit one flat. The fact that Laura would practically shove her husband in to an affair with her idol Jenna just shows how much Laura worships her. That leads to a bunch of comical three ways. This book was a great way to spend the afternoon!
