    1. Well-paced narrative filled with secrets and heightened drama, but with little to no serious consequences, whichever way the drama is resolved. I have a hard time with entitled couples (he because he was born rich, she because she thinks the world owes her something because she is beautiful and had a hard childhood) who are disappointed when their fairytale marriage turns out to be just like any other marriage--sometimes work, sometimes dull, sometimes unfulfilling. Would make a good beach read [...]


    2. Reminiscent of Forever is the Worst Long Time by Camille Pagan this book came to me a perfect time. I had been reading a lot of thrillers and needed a genre switch. This book was a delight! Cass and Jonathan appear to have a prefect marriage or at the very least they don't seem to have any real problems, but one day Cass tells Jonathan she needs a break from the marriage,an intermission, to be apart and re-evaluate after six months. Jonathan is thrown for a loop, but lets Cass go. How well do we [...]


    3. From the beginning, I did not like either of the main characters (Cass-wife, Jon(athan), husband). And, to be honest, they didn't seem to like each other, or themselves, much either. This fact, though, makes the story pretty relatable and quick moving. In any relationship, you reach of a point of complacency and sometimes it's hard to see your way out of that. Someone people look at this as a good thing, some as a bad. For Cass and Jonathan, they viewed this as a bad and worked their way to figu [...]


    4. (publication date 6/3/18)Writing; 4+ Characters: 4 Plot: 4An intriguing exploration of the interior spaces of a marriage. Cass and Jonathan Coyne have been married - ostensibly happily - for five years. And yet just as they are about to start a family, Cass suggests a six month “intermission” in which to step back and decide whether or not they belong together. The alternating chapters between their two voices are full of penetrating observations about themselves, their relationship, and the [...]


    5. 3 1/5 stars for this quick read. After 5 years of marriage Cass asks for an ‘Intermission’ from Her marriage to Jonathan. Marriage is hard, but these 2 seem so not ready for it. Secrets before going in and secrets in the marriage. I really could not relate to either and couldn’t root for either. But, it’s a fast paced read, great for beach, or snowy winter day. I received an ARC from Greats Thoughts Reading Ninja Team. All opinions are my own.


    6. The Intermission takes a look at a marriage 5 years old and answers the question - how well do you really know your spouse? Cass and Jonathan met in college, only to be reunited by fate (his words) in NYC years after graduation. But was it really fate?Cass comes to Jonathan and asks for an Intermission in their marriage - six months. And the book tells a her story, his story - chapter by chapter. Cass has secrets, and we learn later - so does Jonathan, some I didn't see coming, and it was nice t [...]


    7. As a woman, I found myself SO committed to the main character -- Cass. I found her extremely relatable even though her logic wasn't always "conventional." She's human, she has insecurities, she's unsure about her future. She's scared for her future. The author highlighted Cass' characteristics in a tasteful way that was not too overbearing.


    8. I received a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. From the publisher –Have you ever had a secret so gut-wrenching you couldn't share it with anyone, not even the person who shares your bed? Told from the alternating perspectives of a husband and wife who both have something to hide, this incisive novel pulls back the curtain on a seemingly-happy marriage, posing the question: how much do we really know--and how much should we want to know-- [...]


    9. Does marriage get boring? Do we find flaws in our spouses? Do we always handle tragedies well? INTERMISSION tells the story of an extremely likable couple who have us cheering for them to get past the inevitable disappointments that go with marriage. Friedland has crafted the novel about the Coynes, Jonathan and Cass, and how they dealt with life’s imperfections. Their plan was a 6 month “intermission “ to make decisions about their future. Of course, life goes on piling crisis after crisi [...]


    10. I received an advance review copy of this book from the Great Thought's Ninja Review Team. All opinions are my own.This book had me hooked from start to finish! I loved going back and forth to understand each side of the relationship between Cass and Jonathan. I believe everyone can relate to them in some point of their lives. You learn how guilt from the past can destroy your future. How important communication in a marriage is and in the end you will learn what’s truly important to you and t [...]
