Now, with The Wonder Spot , Bank is back with her signature combination of devilishly self-deprecating humor, seriousness and wisdom. Nothing comes easily to Sophie Applebaum, the Melissa Bank's runaway bestseller, The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing , charmed readers and critics alike with its wickedly insightful, tender look at a young woman's forays into love, work, and friendship.
Nothing comes easily to Sophie Applebaum, the black sheep of her family trying to blend in with the herd. Uneasily situated between two brothers, Sophie first appears as the fulcrum and observer of her clan in "Boss of the World. The Wonder Spot follows Sophie's quest for her own identity—who she is, what she loves, whom she loves, and occasionally whom she feels others should love—over the course of 25 years. In an often-disappointing world, Sophie listens closely to her own heart.
And when she experiences her 'Aha! In this tremendous follow-up to The Girls' Guide To Hunting And Fishing , Bank again shares her vast talent for capturing a moment, taking it to heart, and giving it back to her readers. Get A Copy.

I read the book over the course of a week. By the time I got to the ending, I had zero recollection of Seth. Last time I put the book down, it was Neil and they were planning the rest of their lives together.
All I could find was a Seth who used to be the roommate of one of her brothers. Suzan Lemont I don't think he appeared anywhere in the book before that.
I was jarred by the abrupt shift from second to last and last chapter as well. It's why I only gave the book 3 stars; I felt like it was one of those weird "tacked on" endings, like suddenly she just ran out of steam and wanted to get it over with.
Too bad, because it was a good read otherwise. See 1 question about The Wonder Spot…. Lists with This Book. Community Reviews. Showing Average rating 3. Rating details. Sort order. The pointless ending made me realize how pointless Sophie's life is. I felt disappointed for her. She seems unable to love, or unable to commit. Is it that hard to fall in love with one of her many boyfriends?
No one is perfect, but that doesn't mean no one is worth your love. I think Sophie is typical of many people in our culture, which makes me sad. The writing is not bad despite its many similarities to The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing ; if you're a mediocre, middle class person, you The pointless ending made me realize how pointless Sophie's life is.

Another note about the dust jacket: it begins, "Nothing comes easily to Sophie Applebaum. People whose families have houses on the Jersey shore, whose fathers are judges, who grow up in the upper-middle-class suburbs have plenty of things that come easy to them.
She doesn't discover that sometimes you have to work hard in life until she finishes college. Here is one of her few actual epiphanies in the book: "I would have to work harder. View all 3 comments. Apr 18, Abigail Hillinger rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Anybody who just can't get it right with relationships. Shelves: fiction. Melissa Bank is not Chick-Lit. And why is that? Because her heroines never fixate on their weight, their clothing, their hairstyle, their men.
Sophie can't commit. She doesn't order for herself in restaurants or at bars. She has no ambition or ideals for wh Melissa Bank is not Chick-Lit. She has no ambition or ideals for what she wants to do.
Every relationship seems to be "the one" but a few pages into it, both she and the reader know that he won't be "the one" because she's so lost, because she has absolutely no idea who she is and what she wants. Everybody looks like "the one" to her--it's hard to know what she wants from a lover when she can't make a decision on a beer without a significant other's input.
Sophie has a teenager mentality. She hasn't evolved. Which is, oddly, why many adult women love her. Because we pretend like we know what we want in relationships, but half the time, we're just looking for somebody to tell us what we want.
And this is why she'll never be Chick Lit. She looks at the big picture, asks the pertinent questions, points out things about the female gender that we don't want to admit. She doesn't succumb to her character calling herself fat when she's a size six, or the random hot guy that will validate her when he admits because he always admits that he likes her. In essence, she's not predictable. And thank God for it. View 1 comment. I liked not loved this book. Hope that the main character Sophie would soon have some breakthrough towards maturity.
Throughout the book, and especially toward the end, I alternated between hopeful expectation and frustration. The lack of committment in Sophie was very hard for me to personally relate to.
I also admit that I enjoyed the author's sense of humor. There were quite a few places that I lauhed out loud. This was the first novel by Melissa Bank I've read. On the whole, I enjoyed her wrting syle. It was a bit unusual to me to skip decades between chapters. I do understand now, having finished the book that Banks' purpose here was to focus on "moments" or "wonder spots" in Sophie's life that were pivotal character-building points. It makes me want to step back and really think about what those "wonder spots" have been in my own life and how it has made me what I am today.
Admittedly, the end of the book left me dangling on the edge of a cliff, hoping - but not convinced - that Sophie had found contentment, purpose and meaning in her life. I'm a hopeful person, and I always hope for a happy ending, so I assume she did. Aug 26, Tory rated it liked it.
I imitated my mother accepting a light from my father and exhaled as she did, ceiling-ward. Margie held her own cigarette between her teeth like a killer; she was imitating someone, too - maybe the Penguin from Batman. This was hard because it made me hate him. The writer has an ability to make regular things seem like not a waste of time to be reading. Sophie, the main character was very likable, and realistic.
Also, the story had a real-life aspect that a lot of novels miss completely.
