American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld

I cannot put this book down!
It is unlike me to read fiction, but I was drawn to the cover (shallow, I know, but it is an intriguing photo), and it was on buy 1 get one free in Waterstones, so it would have been rude not to.

OMG - what a book!! It is written over 4 quarters, so I spent the first night reading to the end of the chapter only to read quarter as it doesn't have chapters as such. I was nearly late for work this morning, as I got back into bed with a cup of tea for a "quick" read. And the painting has come to a standstill - I am off all day Tuesday so will catch up then, and it is difficult to paint white gloss at night.
Not a book I had heard of before, but I so glad I saw it - must dash, I am sure I can get another few pages in before dinner....

I love hearing about a book that someone just can't put down... I was the same way with The Help) a few months back. Thanks for the tip!
