There really isn't anything special about this book, it follows the lives of 3 couples whose friends die in a boating accident or so they think. They go through the grief and then start to question their relationships with each other as well as with the friends who died. I don't know what to think, it's all jumbled up, it's a good story but there is so much going on, you get to read different chapter from each persons point of view, and not only that you get flash backs and many of them. It was hard to focus on what was happening at the current moment. Basically they all have different reasons to be sad or rethink their life, and the decisions they have made. So if you want an easy fast read go for it but it's not something to really think hard about.
