Here are a few excerpts from the latest review on The Ones That Got Away...
"I am pretty sure there is something universal in The Ones that Got Away. Someone who married her high-school sweetheart might not be able to identify with Hill, but I think that most women who have been out on a few dates will find something familiar here...
"Taken alone any chapter of this book would be a funny little vignette. And Hill is very funny. Her style is sometimes like a stand-up comedian. I laughed out loud several times. What caught me by surprise, though, was that the sum total of these stories was more than a good laugh...
"...without ever expecting to, I found myself liking and rooting for this person whose life reminded me of my own. Ms. Hill helped me forgive my own past mistakes, and that was the last thing I expected to get out of this book.
"Without making many overt attempts at offering wisdom or encouragement, save for the last few pages, M. Hill gives us an opportunity to see ourselves a little more clearly. In the very personal details of her own life, Hill says something universal-- at least for women who date men. I would not necessarily recommend the book to a man. If, however, there is a man who has always wondered what women talk about when they are alone, he can find out right here. Hill's tone throughout is that of one girlfriend to another, and the subject matter like many cozy conversations I have had among women."
