The Starter Marriage by Pamela Paul

An overview of the recent phenomenon of marriages that end before they reach the five-year mark.

I hate books that never tell you more than what you read in the title. I generally enjoy books like this, as I’m keenly interested in human behavior and social trends, but this book really didn’t do it for me. I never felt like Paul’s interviewees came alive, and as a result I wasn’t sucked into the drama of their lives. I gave up on it 2/3 of the way through because I just do not have the time to spend with a book I don’t like right now.
