First, I want to say that the book is well written: however, I am disappointed at how it portrayed marriage. I don't understand the high ratings. Marriage is about commitment, trust, love, compromise, growing and building a life together, oneness, and being there for each other when times get hard. The book was full of secrets, selfishness, backstabbing, mistrust, lying, and deceit. This is not how I see marriage. What a shame, as the author had the opportunity to build up marriages.

I could not relate to any of the main characters. In fact, I did not like them. I got so tired of Celestial and Andre; I couldn’t wait for the book to end. I am trying to figure out why I finished it. Celestial and Andre are both shallow, selfish, uncompromising. They each think the world revolves around him or her.

I won't recommend this book to anyone, because I didn't care for the subject matter.
