I reached for “The Divorce Papers” because it seemed like a smart chic lit book, one that focused on a young, female attorney’s first divorce case. The format of the book was told through letters, memos, emails, and recorded statements, and the author’s legal background provided an excellent foundation for these written communications. While I understood all of the things in the book as being legally accurate, the events didn’t culminate into an interesting plot, certainly not one that moved quickly. The build up for the story was a bit long for me- not much had happened in almost 200 pages. There also wasn’t enough background information provided for the characters to make me like them. Because I felt disconnected from the story and the characters, I stopped reading this.
