Eric, the main character, is a young man who is independently wealthy thanks to his computer acumen. He’s a wiz at computers, but relationships with women are another thing altogether. An introvert, he has a tough time relating to women. His insecurities leave him questioning his every move when he begins dating a woman with a questionably dark secret in her past.
I really got caught-up in this story. Even though I don’t understand computer lingo, I do understand how confusing male/female relationships can be. I think Roth did a stellar job of conveying very real human emotions which many can relate to.
