Summary
This story of two sisters who are complete opposites borrows from a classic recipe (think Austen's Sense and Sensibility). It is adapted for modern assimilation with a hint of Y2K, a dollop of dot.com boom-and-bust cycles, and even a smack of the 911 attacks. Its rich flavors entice us to seek and appreciate what is meaningful in life and to savor the experience.
Critique
With a bunch of characters and a heap of themes, this tempting concoction is neither too overpowering nor too thin. Its talented author has brewed a truly satisfying read and an entertaining experience. Bon appetit! Recommend.
