Honey, Baby, Sweetheart
written by Deb Caletti
While Honey, Baby, Sweetheart occasionally delivers an adorably quirky phrase here and there, it is ultimately in the same boat as Juno--filled with horrible metaphors that just don't fit in and sound incredibly forced, with the most predictable ending possible. Every page you turn, it's never-ending metaphor after metaphor. If I wanted that, I'd go read Shakespeare. I wrote down a full page of predictions of a piece of paper while reading, and every last one came true. As the end approached and Lillian and Charles reunited, I had written "Oh, yay, finally a book that does it right!"...only to have my hopes completely crushed by the end. What the heck, Deb Caletti? Can't end a book happily, just *have* to include a death? Horribly disappointing.
