I enjoyed this book about relationships in a family. The marriage between the main characters seemed somewhat unlikely given how different they were, but perhaps it was a case of opposites attract? The book reminded me a bit of The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion because the main character in both books is very rational and lacks emotional intelligence, and pairs up with a woman who is much more intuitive and impetuous. Then there is the teenage son going through emotional turmoil as he tries to work out his identity. The book was a good read, but I wouldn't put it in the exceptional category.
