Summary:

People magazine included The Restaurant Critic's Wife on their Great New Fiction list and hailed it as 'thoroughly entertaining.' Lila Soto has a master's degree that's gathering dust, a work-obsessed husband, two kids, and lots of questions about how exactly she ended up here.In their new city of Philadelphia, Lila's husband, Sam, takes his job as a restaurant critic a little too seriously. To protect his professional credibility, he's determined to remain anonymous. Soon his preoccupation with anonymity takes over their lives as he tries to limit the family's contact with anyone who might have ties to the foodie world. Meanwhile, Lila craves adult conversation and some relief from the constraints of her homemaker role. With her patience wearing thin, she begins to question everything: her decision to get pregnant again, her break from her career, her marriage-even if leaving her ex-boyfriend was the right thing to do. As Sam becomes more and more fixated on keeping his identity secret, Lila begins to wonder if her own identity has completely disappeared-and what it will take to get it back.

    I almost quit listening to the book several times. The story was not particularly captivating, but what drove me nuts was the voice of the child; totally whiney and obnoxious! The character of the husband was not believable to me. Overall I didn't like it, but it was still better than anything I could write!
