Satisfaction

SatisfactionRadcliffe, 1972 Four Freshman Roommates, All Daughters Of Famous Men, All Intelligent, Ambitious, Full Of Style And Promise On The First Day Of School They Become Fast Friends And Furious Rivals They Also Meet Schuyler Smith, A Devastatingly Handsome Montana Boy Who Will Love Each Of Them In Turn. Satisfaction is one of those rare treats that I got to read when I was in my classic novels and self help works phase, because the paperback copy was given to me As someone who was born in 1981, nine years after the setting of the novel took place, I didn t immediately recognize phrases like cable knit sweaters, but the author s brief reference to alligators appliqued to polo shirts were obviously the high end brand of clothing.Some might easily dismiss it as just another romance novel or a light, easy read, but one of Satisfaction s strengths is its strong plot and storytelling, the reason I gave it a four star rating The author goes deep into each of the four female protagonists past dating as far back as their childhood in order to show readers what motivates each of them Their characters have depth, breadth, and clarity.I liked how the average female reader can easily relate to December, Rosaline, Katie Lee, and Marinda, for they are just as human in their frailties as they are unique, strong, and exquisite Satisfaction s glaring fault is how the character of Schuyler Smith, the main male protagonist, was presented, which I found a bit weak and ineffective. Even though this book was set in 1972 years before I came to be and spanned a decade still not born yet , it was didn t feel as dated as one might expect I enjoyed the book immensely even though the first couple of pages gave the story away to me anyways, wasn t hard to know which women the groom was referring to without naming them after reading just a bit of the book It s not a keeper, but I am still the story will stick me long after someone else has enjoyed my already second third hand copy. One of the few books I read years ago that I can still remember, so that says something I am the type that will get 1 3 of the way through something and realized I have read it, so you can see that actually remembering something obscure and not a bestseller means I think it was a good read There are hundreds of books I don t remember reading that didn t make my read list, but I did remember this one I ve read this book several times It s a great easy summer read or winter read It s one of the books I repeat read every year or so I enjoy the story and the characters I do think the main male character in this book is a little weak. definately a good read I read this YEARS ago back before New Adult was even a thing I loved this book and read it multiple times.
