Nathaniel P. never was great with girls when he was growing up. However, now that he has a book deal and is a clever and hip 30-something in Brooklyn, he has become more successful with women. When he meets Hannah halfway through the novel, they start a relationship that seems great at first, but soon starts to fizzle. Nathaniel must come to terms with why it is that he can't seem to commit, even with a girl that seems perfect for him. All told in a humorous and slightly satirical style, Nathaniel wrestles with the central question, is there something wrong with him? Or is it just the relationship itself that is wrong?
Best part of story, including ending:
I liked this story because Nathaniel was an unforgettable character and his whole group of friends were hilarious and snobby.
Best scene in story:
My favorite scene was Nathaniel's confrontation with Juliet at the beginning of the book because it set the scene for Nathaniel's character right up front.
Opinion about the main character:
He was rude and selfish but an interesting case study.
