Best-selling author Louis Begley created a beguiling icon of middle age in About Schmidt. Recently widowed, pushed into retirement by his law firm, at odds with his family, Albert Schmidt captivated readers with his cautious courage. Now he is facing ever mounting challenges of life, love, and age. Schmidt is happy living with his affectionate young girlfriend, Carrie. His grumpy daughter, on the other hand, seems to want only money from him. What really disturbs Schmidt, however, is the growing attention of his neighbor, the exotic Michael Mansour. Wealthy and persistent, Mansour seems determined to draw Schmidt into his lavish personal and financial affairs. Louis Begley's aim is perfect as he targets the joys and pitfalls facing our graying hero.

    " Not quite as good as the first Schmidtie book, but enjoyable nonetheless...I can follow the foibles of Schmidtie for some time to come, he is never boring (even though he thinks he is!) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 6/11/2013

    " The second in the Schmidt series. Another well-crafted Begley effort, with a simpler plot line than his first one, and shorter in length. Schmidt does grow on one, after one gets used to him! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wolfgang | 2/22/2013

    " I am looking forward to getting old, part II. "

    " Loved it. Wasn't too sure when I first started it, but I loved the setting although I had never been to the Hamptons and the characters were a whacky bunch. The satire made the book worth reading for me. It reminded me of the Rabbit books by Updike. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dick Muir | 5/30/2012

    " A continuation of the wonderful story of middle age angst and life after early or forced retirement. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dragana | 11/17/2011

    " Glad that Schmidtie got a sequel, but didn't measure up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie | 10/19/2011

    " You know those books you keep reading because you think it has to get better? Well, this one does, but the ending is not so good as to offset all the time spent reading about a whiny old man, his slutty girlfriend, and his bitchy daughter. Blech. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brittany | 4/7/2011

    " Awesome story about what happens when you're old and you've been left behind. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bobby | 1/14/2011

    " Enjoyed the movie, so tried the book. Not as impressed. It was just "OK" "

    " a good read, nothing earth shattering, somewhat heartfelt "ing" from a man's perspective............. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christi | 10/9/2009

    " Sooo much better than the movie! Nothing like the movie.
    Lois Begley is a cool, calm elegant writer.
    Readin him is like drinking a dry martini! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deborah | 9/11/2009

    " This book has little resemblance to the movie (Thank God). I loved it so much, I read just about everything available by Begley at my local library. Begley is a master. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Pam | 1/1/2009

    " Creepy, and not in a good way. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ginny | 10/10/2008

    " Gak. Began wishing that Schmidt had died instead of his wife. "

    " Nothing really like the movie, which was weird. Good book, but I think having seen the movie first ruined it with expectations. "
