I found Kate annoying. I think juggling a family, a career, and a social life is one of the hardest things to do but I know plenty of men and women who do it successfully. Unfortunately, Kate sacrificed her marriage and her kids for her job (not so successfully juggling.) She barely has time to talk to her husband but can find time for an affair? Gross. I think the author tried to portray Kate as a feminist but failed miserably. Feminists don't have to hate men and blame all of their shortcomings on them which is what Kate was constantly doing. I wasn't a huge fan of the movie but it was actually better than the man-hater of a book that this is.
