Perhaps getting even by framing for murder IS the answer?
PLOT: Girl meets boy. Boy meets girl. They fall in love and get married. You watched their marriage fall apart. You hate the husband. Then you loath the wife. Then you don't know what to think anymore.
This book is written from three perspectives and two are from the same person. Weird, right? It's written in first person so you get to see what is going on inside both Amy's and Nick's heads.
What I took from it: First, I wonder how hard it would be to frame someone for murder?
On a serious note, it really made me think about dating and marriage in general. A big part of this book rested on the fact that the two protagonists were simply playing the role of someone the other would like. Once they couldn't hold up the act and reality would set in, Amy and Nick grew in disdain that the other realized they weren't perfect.
Amy was playing "the cool girl" she said. It was the version of herself that guys liked. Nick fell in love with cool Amy and he liked the person he was around her.
That raises one question in my mind: Is this persona real or fake? We all are a bit different around different people or around people versus ourselves.
As Shakespeare said, All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players.
What my mind decided on is that it's okay to vary slightly if what matters the most remains the same: values, trust, honesty. I think that Amy and Nick were too focused on being perfect, being successful, being the winner that they never really figured out how to be two rational, sane people (Although Nick did try).
If you read it or have read it, let me know who you think the victim is if you had to choose one!
