    1 thought on “Chronicles of a Midlife Crisis”

    1. This was a quick read. Easy to follow. Simple characters, simple storyline. That's about all it had going for it. Quick and easy.Not a single character in this book was likable. Each one was very shallow and so self-centered! And a couple of them were just plain crazy!Lucy- She was nuts. Always screaming and throwing things and freaking the F*** out! I can see being upset that you husband has decided to leave you after 18 years of marriage, which, I'm sorry, but how do you not realize that at le [...]

    2. What an amazing story. After 16 years of marriage Trent wanted something new, without his wifebut when Lucy decides to have fun on her own, she is thrown into the mad world of paparazzi. Funny, heartbreaking and incredibly real, this story will take you on an adventure.

    3. Library Request This was narrated in two points of view The wife Lucy and the Estranged husband Trent it is endearingly honest, witty, and at times achingly childish behaviour from the parents. The story of a man rising to the challenge of rescuing his relationship with the woman he loves-as he embarks on a life altering journey on the heels of a mid life crisis. It is an authentic meditation on the demands of marriage and parenthood, the regrets of abandoning ones family for a fleeting sexual e [...]

    4. Two things Robyn Harding does best 1) write amazingly complex characters that are easy to relate to, 2) make you laugh until you almost cry. Well, she's back with her amazingly witty characters and banter. I would compare her style to candy you know you should be doing something else with your time, but just can't help yourself and keep reading until the very last page. Lucy and Trent are two of the richest characters that I've read in this genre in ages I wish there was more.

    5. I really enjoyed this book because it was from the view point of both the man and the wife. Instead of what you would normally expect, which would be one person going through the mid life crisis, this story has both main characters go through mid life crisis. It shows how differently a man and woman react to particular situations. There was a lot of witty remarks and very biting sarcasm which I really enjoyed and it had me laughing out loud quite a few times. The ending is not traditional and I [...]

    6. I think many people find themselves in the trap that comes with being married for a number of years and finding they want excitement. SoTrent leaves his wife & child to pursue a relationship with an attractive co-worker. From this point, his life falls in ruins at his feet. So true to reality

    7. I was disappointedwas even more "chick lit" than I expected. Husband decides his marriage is stale, attracted to a younger babe at work, separates from his wife, runs around, teenage daughter goes off the deep end, etc. So predictable.

    8. Good bookThis book was easy to follow. There was some suspense but the bratty daughter drove me nuts. Overall good book that doesn't require a lot of thinking.

    9. Sometimes life doesn't turn out the way we planned. In Robyn Harding's newest novel, Chronicles of a Midlife Crisis, married couple Lucy and Trent discover the truth in this statement the hard way. After being married for almost twenty years, they've come to know each another better than anyone else. Trent is the first to admit it isn't enough, as he's explaining his leaving to his wife: "We haven't really been connected for years now, Lucy. We work, we co-parent, we pay the mortgage together, b [...]

    10. The book begins when Trent explains to Lucy, his wife of almost twenty years that he needs a break and walks out on their marriage. There seemed to be no big issues except for the fact that he was attracted to his co worker, Annika. In his mind, Trent thinks that leaving his wife/family would be the best way to have a better life which of course was the worst thing he did.Lucy on the other hand was broken and confused but despite the tragedy of losing her husband she tries to balance her career [...]

    11. This book was a simple beach read. But the story was ridiculousTrent and Lucy have been married for 16 years, and they have built a really good life together. Until one day Trent comes home and decides it's over. He's done. He wants something else. Lucy begins to pick up the pieces, and tries to deal with their 15 year old daughter, who is taking the breakup hard. Trent becomes involved with another woman, and the fangs come out. However, when Lucy suddenly has a love interets, Trent is furious [...]

    12. Found this book at a mall's Defunct Books for $3.25 - I was just grabbing something to read at a restaurant I went to next door. It took me just 3 solid days to finish it. Couldn't put it down! Great story rehashing the fall & rise of a marriage. Filled with wit & self-effacing humor from the protagonists. The best part of this book was the ending - it's one you wouldn't normally expect. I'll be grabbing Harding's first book from the library tomorrow. So happy to have discovered this aut [...]

    13. Two things Robyn Harding does best 1) write amazingly complex characters that are easy to relate to, 2) make you laugh until you almost cry. Well, she's back with her amazingly witty characters and banter. I would compare her style to candy you know you should be doing something else with your time, but just can't help yourself and keep reading until the very last page. Lucy and Trent are two of the richest characters that I've read in this genre in ages I wish there was more.

    14. This book strained credulity. Hard-core. And the male character was a complete jerk. So since the book goes back and forth between the husband's and wife's perspective, I spent half the book in the head of a guy I wanted to kick in the nuts. I wasn't a huge fan of her other book, Unravelled. It's a good bet I won't bother with anything else by this author.

    15. I enjoyed this book much more than I expected to. The author tells the story of a marital crisis, alternating points of view between the husband and wife. There's a lot of humour in the writing but I think the basic marital strife is one that anybody in a long term relationship can relate to. It was a quick and enjoyable read for me.

    16. This book is delightful. I literally laughed out loud. The idea of showing both sides of the breakup is great and Harding lives up to the task. There are a few moments where Trent doesn't sound convincing, where he sounds made up by a woman, but those moments don't compromise the story at all. It's very entertaining.

    17. Enjoyed this book. But found Trent to be a real ass. He decided to go for greener pastures and then blames Lucy for her indiscretion that ends up in the tabloids for all that happens. How ironic is that.

    18. Great story told from the perspective of both the husband and wife, about marriage, life and the fact both men and women can have a midlife crisis. I loved the entrepreneurial spirit in the book, too.

    19. I did finish it, so I can't put it on my "Couldn't Finish" shelf. Maybe I should start a "Shouldn't Have Finished" shelf. Lightweight story about two people who, deep down, are both selfish, shallow and generally unpleasant. What a waste of time.

    20. This was a fun, quick read. I picked it because I loved my other recent read by this author, "The Journal of Mortifying Moments". While "Chronicles of a Midlife Crisis" didn't make me laugh out loud at all, I still enjoyed the modern and realistic approach to some complicated marriage issues.

    21. Interesting look into some else's perception of middle age. Seems to have accurate info and experiences for the theme.

    22. Cheating fella's midliv crisis leads his wife to realize maybe she should have been having one of her own. the end they each get theirs :)

    23. This was billed as a look at a midlife crisis from both the male and female perspective. Really, it's a revenge fantasy for divorcing, 40-something women.

    24. Entertaining he-said she-said POV in alternating chapters of a couple's travails, precipitated by the husband's announcement that he is leaving. Expected and unexpected events ensue.
