Forks, Knives and Spoons
Amy is headed off to college when her dad reveals that there are three types of men in the world: forks, knives and spoons. (Knives are the best.) This offhand discussion becomes Amy’s way of life and she classifies every guy with this system. The novel follows Amy and her friends through college and beyond.
I loved this book and this is the perfect time for it. (There’s even a Santa subplot.) It’s clever, but there’s also a lot of heart to it. (Best of all, there are a bunch of When Harry Met Sally… references, something I think makes everything better.)
I’m younger than the women in this novel (their college life starts in the late 1980s) but the references brought back my childhood (ESPRIT! I had forgotten you!) and made me absolutely adore this story.
If you want to escape for a few hours with a smile on your face, this is for you. Recommended. Read more…
