Back When We Were Grownups - Anne Tyler

A friend recommended this or another book by Anne Typer at some point, but I only recently started this after finding a used copy at the library. Although I did like some parts of it, I wasn't overly impressed by the writing style. I felt like it was good to a point, but that there were certain problems left in that didn't make it really great. Details only added much later, a good deal of insignificant conversation to fill the pages, and are unsatisfying end. It was just ok overall.
