    Like some other other reviewers saidI too loved the charactersSince it takes place in New York the cast of characters reminded me of a good Woody Allen movie Helgasson is a gifted storyteller and The Thirty Something Snap deals with mid life crisis romance and comedy There are some very funny scenesThe dialogue is mature and fits the plot perfectlyThe story also has adventure to it where one can vicariously come along and enjoy the ride and postpone growing older for at least a little while

    I LOVE the characters They are so genuine and the scenarios that Alan Helgasson wrote in The Thirty Something Snap are so very real The dialogue is a joy to read And I like that fact that it is written from the first person perspective It makes me feel like a part of the story This is such a wonderful romantic comedy It should be made into a movie I enjoyed laughing and the romantic tension is the best Plus this story spans generations and gives a great perspective on life

    Even though I'm not thirty something any I could relate to a lot of the things the characters are going through in this book Maybe there's a fifty something snap? Anyway this was a fun read and since I'm always a sucker for the chick flicks I enjoyed the love story part of this book also
