Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth
In Stuck in the Passing Lane, author Jed Ringel recounts his attempts at dating following his divorce. Rather than fall into the same patterns that led to his lengthy, yet failed marriage, he goes outside his comfort zone and begins dating women the newly-single Jewish man would usually avoid. Sometimes it leads to some very humorous moments that will have readers snickering.
Honestly, I found myself less entranced with the dating trials and tribulations than with Jed's interactions with his daughters. It was those moments when I found myself feeling emotionally involved in the story. Perhaps, my disinterest in the dating aspect was because I'm happily married and have been for almost 24 years, so I just haven't been in Jed's shoes for a long, long time.
In the end, I feel that Stuck in the Passing Lane will appeal to those who understand the ins and outs of dating in today's world. I, however, simply liked his moments as a father far more.
