Tom Perrotta's thirtysomething parents of young children are a varied and surprising bunch. There's Todd, the handsome stay-at-home dad dubbed The Prom King by the moms of the playground; Sarah, a lapsed feminist with a bisexual past, who seems to have stumbled into a traditional marriage; Richard, Sarah's husband, who has found himself more and more involved with a fantasy life on the Internet than with the flesh and blood in his own house; and Mary Ann, who thinks she has it all figured out, down to scheduling a weekly roll in the hay with her husband, every Tuesday at 9pm. They all raise their kids in the kind of sleepy American suburb where nothing ever seems to happen, at least until one eventful summer, when a convicted child molester moves back to town, and two restless parents begin an affair that goes further than either of them could have imagined. Unexpectedly suspenseful, but written with all the fluency and dark humor of Perrotta's previous novels, Little Children exposes the adult dramas unfolding amidst the swingsets and slides of an ordinary American playground.

    " Never thought I could develop sympathy for such a horrible and despicable character "

    " This book surprised me. I felt sympathy for people I would normally hate because their lives were so screwed up. Makes you think. "

    " The author creates one-dimensional characters who are cliches of suburban life. I wondered why he bothered to write about characters for whom he had such apparent contempt, or why he imagined the reader would care about them. The plot was shallow and, for the most part, predictable. It would not have taken very much imagination to create characters with more humanity and depth than the ones in Little Children, but the author doesn't seem interested in doing so. The book seems written for the sole purpose of reaching what the author conceives as a dramatic ending. "

    " I adored this book! An author has talent when (s)he can stir emotions - and Perrotta managed to stir many w/ LC: I laughed. I shuttered. I wallowed. Human emotions are raw and real and the author shows a continued knack for honing in and the all-too-gray nature in us all. 4 1/2 stars "
