I liked Little Children by Tom Perrotta despite not really liking any of the main characters. Now that I think about it, I seem to recall having a similar reaction to Joe College. While I find Perrotta's books very funny and satirical, I don't have much sympathy for the characters or the situations in which they find themselves. I don't seem to have a lot to say about this one - I liked the writing and the plot was interesting. But, despite some initial sympathy for Sarah, I ultimately didn't like her decisions. I'm sure this comes from my feelings on marriage and infidelity and children and how different my views are from those of the characters.
