    1. Women Like us is the debut novel by Jason Pomerance. It tells the story of Susan, a chef in her late 30s, whose life's course had been somewhat re-routed by an unexpected pregnancy and marriage at college age, to Andrew, a privileged law student from a Pasadena “aristocratic" family.Having divorced, and carried on with their respected lives, Henry their son had been practically brought up by the all mighty Grandma, Edith (Edie) Vale, a control freak, old fashioned Pasadena strong woman, who ru [...]


    2. When you're a teenager, they tell you to read The Catcher in the Rye, right? Well, I must've not been paying attention because I missed that bit of good advice and didn't make that essential young-man connection with Holden Caulfield until I was 22 (I think).Why am I saying this? Because I'm here to tell you that "Women Like Us" is the book you need to read when you hit your thirties. (I'm 34.) There is so much meaning and emotion packed in to the pages of Author Jason Pomerance's story, I hardl [...]


    3. For someone that devours historical fiction and fantastic adventure novels it was odd for me to pick up Women Like Us. I'm so happy I did. The story of the Vale-Jones-Lee-Entrekein-etc family was super entertaining. As a millennial in their 20's I loved the character Henry, but Edith Vale stole the show for me. "Mrs. Vale" as a character was so entertaining to follow, even though it is almost impossible for me to connect with a grandmother on the verge of her 70's, regardless she's my hero. Anyo [...]


    4. "Nobody had friendships like this anymore, it seemed. It took too much time, was too much work."It's unsettling to imagine the many ways Women Like Us could have gone wrong. It's a road trip story that could have leaned on cliche. It's a story of reconciliation that could have mired itself in melodrama. It's a multigenerational story that could have continually looked backward in order to shy away from moving ahead. And, so as not to spoil any story beats, that's not all. But those fears do not [...]


    5. College student Susan marries upper class Andrew when she becomes pregnant with Henry, at his mother Edith's insistence. When the marriage falls apart, mother-in-law Edith Vale takes over custody of Henry. She is a strong, opinionated lady of the 50's who country clubbed with the ladies and ran a very tight ship. Susan moves across country and rarely sees her son. Determined to win back Henry's love, Susan quits her job and takes him on a cross-country road-trip from his east coast boarding scho [...]


    6. Not my usual genre, but I found Women Like Us to be extremely well written and very hard to put down once I got into it.


    7. I bought this book with low expectations. What man would dare call his book 'Women Like Us' without writing under a pseudonym? Well, as it turned out, this is a pretty good read. At first I thought is was to be the story of Susan and Andrew, an freelance chef and her boyfriend blueblood Andrew. Ultimately, though the story is taken over by her pushy, efficient mother-in-law, the Pasadena matriarch Edith. The book crackles when Edith is around, and soon I found myself caught up in the story. Brav [...]


    8. This was a good book that explored family relationships and dynamics. I did wish that there had been more focus on the evolving relationship between Susan, the main character, and her teenaged son Henry. It is obvious that they are distant and have plenty of unresolved issues between them at the start of the book, and things have been resolved by the end, but there wasn't a lot in the plot development that really showed how/why that changed.


    9. I definitely enjoyed this book and didn't want to put it down for very long so I could keep the gathered momentum going. There were a few side stories/histories that really helped build the characters and link things together - without straying too much off the main story, it helped the story - and allowed you get to know them in such endearing ways. [I loved Edith] I wish the book could've kept going! Just finished it and I'm still teary at the end


    10. I loved Women Like Us. The character development was wonderful. Each character contributes to the plot in a way that makes you feel invested in their lives. Jason Pomerance tells this story with empathy and humor. It was a great read.


    11. I won this book from and was very pleasantly surprised by the story. I am sure that there are people who will identify strongly with the character's lives. I will be watching for more from this author. A great story, and one you won't forget for a long time!


    12. Thoroughly enjoyed this book! Loved the variety of characters. Is it crazy that I found bits of me and my family in them? The highs and the lows, the struggles and the triumphs were believable and engaging.


    13. An absolute gem of a book - humorous and moving with a great group of believable characters. Pomerance has a delightful touch with both dialogue and description. I look forward to reading more of his work in the future.


    14. loved iytTHIS was a good read. There was great depth of characters but it was fast to read and very entertaining.
