East Coast, more specifically upper-class New Yorker humor that relates closely to the dialogue from the Housewives of Manhattan. The keeping up with ‘class’ way of living is ridiculously funny, but sadly true, which makes some moments hysterical.Frankly, despite my similarities to economics, marriage, working and raising children I could not relate to the main character. I had a hard time with Izzy’s eternal struggle of doing things just because others (in her friend circle) where doing them. Mind you, these were not small decisions, but life decisions turned trendy such as: divorce, having children, getting married and hiring nannies. I contribute my disconnect perhaps to my inexperience with NYC life. However, I depend on the author to relate such differences and create a plot and character that appeals to my sympathy. This fell very short.
