My thoughts ...
One sentence summary: A short story collection about the life of Jane Rosenal as she struggles with growing up, love and work. 
The good: I like the way the book was set up.  Each short story was a different glimpse into Jane's life at various stages of her life - at 14, 16, 20s, etc.  I have to admit, I couldn't really relate to her or most of her decisions but I liked her voice as the protagonist.  She's smarter than she gives herself credit for, sarcastic and funny in that dry humor kind of way.  
The bad:  Nothing bad.  It was straightforward and a very clear look into the main character's life.  I just wanted to relate to Jane more.
Do I recommend?:  Yes, I do recommend it.  It's a book I've always been curious about but never got around to.  Thanks to Estelle I finally have :)

Happy reading!
