Book Review – The Silver Linings Playbook

The Silver Linings PlaybookI just finished listening to the audiobook version of The Silver Linings Playbook, and it was excellent. As always, I wanted to read the novel before seeing the movie, and I’m glad I did. From what I’ve heard, the movie changed several key elements of the book. What made this book so enjoyable was the terrific character development and wonderfully absurd dialogue. This novel is tragic, romantic and psychotic, all at once. And the Philadelphia Eagles, Kenny G and Southern New Jersey are all integral parts of the story. It’s unlike any book I’ve ever read, and it’s one I won’t soon forget.

Here’s an excerpt from the audiobook:
