A very good book, although sometimes Hannah can be a bit abrupt and harsh, but on the other hand, that's what makes her so interesting.

A very good book. So honest. So insightful. I will read her 1st book & anything else she writes. I recommend this author.

Don't let the pre-teen-style cover fool you: This book is filled with insightful and mature vignettes that are written with an attentive eye for detail and frank honesty. Women will relate to much of protagonist Hannah's experiences, and everyone will enjoy this vivid read about coming of age and finding love.

Although this book bears a banal and generic title, Curtis Sittenfeld's second novel, "The Man of My Dreams," is almost as enjoyable as her first ("Prep," 2005). When the book opens, 14-year-old Hannah Gavener is grappling with her mother's decision to stand up to her controlling father. The storyline follows Hannah through college and afterwards as she tries to find the kind of romance she believes she desires. As is so often the case in life, things don't quite work out according to plan; as a result, this novel rings completely true, vividly capturing a young woman's anxiety and confusion about finding love and direction.
