New boyfriend Patrick a seemingly eligible Iron Man in Waiting Matt brings the new love of his life Alex funny smart and extremely patient Scarlett their daughter brings her imaginary friend Posey He's a rabbit Together the five or six of them grit their teeth over Organized Fun activities drinking a little too much after bed time over. Well I didn t hate it but didn t really like it either hence the 2 rating The description of this book sounded like something that would be really fun to read for the holidays A divorced couple bringing their new significant others on a vacation all together so they could spend Christmas with their daughter You know things will go wrong And how about the book being described as the most hilarious debut you will read this year What doesn t sound awesome about that That sentence alone should have been my first clue that it would be just the opposite All of the characters were unlikeable and the story was boring to me I really wanted to laugh out loud I didn t even giggle Although Scarlett was a bratty kid I liked her and Posey her 5 foot tall imaginary rabbit friend Mainly because I love reading kids POV in books A lot of people enjoyed the dark humor I guess it just wasn t for me I still have lots of December to end the year on a positive note Thank you to NetGalley Random House and Caroline Hulse for my ARC in exchange for my honest review

Sharing classified secrets about their pasts and before you know it their holiday is a powder keg that ends where this story starts with a tearful frightened call to the policeBut what happened They said they'd all be adults about thisIf you loved The Break by Marian Keyes or raved about The Rosie Project look no further than The Adult. This was OK I read it for the Popsugar Challenge uestion the one about reading two books with the same title So I still have to read and I hope it s better than this one I did laugh out loud a couple of times here but struggled with the characterizations The 2 guys were both babies while both women seemed almost saintly in comparison Claire was difficult to get to know and her daughter Scarlet while cute and precocious was overshadowed by her imaginary friend a big rabbit with whom she converses The rabbit named Posy had a much too large part in the book and frankly I got real tired of him or her not sure Also from the GR summary I expected some suspense Nope Just a story about 4 adults two are ex spouses and a child spending a 5 day weekend together to give Scarlet a good Christmas trying not to let their jealousies and self doubts ruin everything It was a struggle for them And probably for many readers Prince Philip Revealed or raved about The Rosie Project look no further than The Adult.

The most hilarious debut you will read this yearMeet The AdultsClaire and Matt are divorced but decide what's best for their daughter Scarlett is to have a 'normal' family Christmas They can't agree on whose idea it was or who said they should bring their new partners But someone did and it's too late to pull the plugClaire brings her. It s unfortunate that the publishers bill this as The most hilarious debut you will read all year This novel about a divorced couple with joint custody of their seven year old daughter who come together with their new boyfriendgirlfriend is cute and fun but I only chuckled once during the book Cute and fun are not the same thing as hilarious It sets up false expectations In fact parts of reading about the struggles of Alex the woman who s dating the father Matt and of Patrick the man who is dating the mother Claire is actually kind of sad Alex is a scientist who doesn t have kids so she fumbles a lot trying to connect with Scarlett the seven year old During the book Matt and Claire get their partners to agree to go away for a five day weekend to celebrate Christmas at a lodge in the woods where there is archery swimming dance classes golf and so on There is jealousy and misunderstandings and straight up lies Scarlett has long conversations with her invisible to everyone but her purple rabbit PoseyEven if your parents never divorced and datedremarried even if you ve never dated a divorced person with kids you ll be able to identify with the different characters particularly perfectionistcompetitive Patrick and the well drawn Alex who gave up alcohol when she realized she was drinking too much only to go a little nuts with wine under the stress of living with Matt s ex wife and his daughter who thinks Alex as a scientist is a murderer of animals Alex isn t that kind of scientist but seven year olds don t always understand the world of scientific inuiry This is a good book It s just not funny Thanks to NetGalley for the opportunity to review this novel which RELEASES NOVEMBER 27 2018 For reviews please visit
