      Actually, the review below from Clarion Reviews says it all, but I disagree with the reviewer on one thing. A psychiatrist, by trade, talks little. He does, however, unconsciously use body motion and eye contact. He came on to Barbara first by the way he looked at her. He also kept speaking of her with admiration, such as saying, "A person like you" She fell in love with him precisely because she so badly needed someone who thought well of her and who found her attractive,. Also, from the start, [...]

      I read this book after reading Franzen's Freedom, and I was thankful for this timing. I enjoyed Franzen's book, and it was definitely a different, more all-encompassing (macro) structure, but the circumstantial similarities between the books is there. As I read Therapy, I was exposed to a character who, like Franzen's protagonist (Patty), has endured abuse and suffered mental upset. And is retracing her tale through the lens of personal psychological discovery; unlike Franzen's book, however, th [...]

      I found it hard to put this book down and stayed up too late one night to finish it. It is well written and the characters are highly interesting, especially the main character, Barbara. The book captures Barbara's feelings and her relationships with everyone and brings home the fact that being accomplished and well thought of does not necessarily make one happy. The dialogue is real and captures conversations that I'm sure frequently do happen between therapists and their clients. Harrie Rose i [...]

      I enjoyed reading this book. I found myself wanting more, in the sense of learning more about the feelings Barbara experienced when her connection with her therapist broke off. It seemed rather abrupt to me and I was half expecting him to make a reappearance later in the story. Otherwise, a very good read.

      enjoyable thought provoking interesting written totally from her perspective. This frustrated me at times but I understand writing from our own perspective is a single truth not the whole truth. Makes me want to visit New England.:) well done to the author.
