Was It Something I Said

Was It Something I Said Review

When Justine and Barry meet during a plane crash just before the Christmas holidays, the relationship that follows is wild, turbulent, and maybe, just maybe, a keeper.
Justine is a pretty, smart, ambitious lawyer who's tired of being set up on lousy dates. Her eighteen-hour work days get in the way of finding Mr. Right, but she'd rather be home with her dog, drinking salad dressing for dinner and watching The Sound of Music on the VCR anyway. Barry is a good-looking food product manager living on the Upper West side with a rich roommate who is juggling three girlfriends at once but never has the rent. Barry seeks his soulmate, but the fact that he hasn't had a date in a year makes things a little tougher.
A comic urban romance about the possibilities and impossibilities of love. Was it Something I Said? is a classic "will they or won't they?" for the nineties that will keep readers guessing until the very end.

    Like some other reviewers, I found the characters to be wholly unlikeable and aimless. There are a lot of characters introduced and they don't have any meaningful connection to each other. You know th...

    What bothers me the most about this book was the overabundance of questions without question marks. I appreciate that the characters are both flawed when so many books idealize heroes or heroines or m...
