I couldn't put it down! My roommate saw me start reading it and asked if I was going to finish it that night. I told her "probably." Well, I actually finished it the next day. The women in the book weave their own lives so separately from their men, it's fantastic!
I'm not surprised you couldn't find it used. I think everyone who reads it is hanging on to it or passing it to a friend to read.
I'm glad you enjoyed it! I tore through the book myself and I borrowed it from a friend.
