    "I have been a huge golf fan for years. I am also a person who enjoys reading. With that said, this book was just not that interesting. The books plot was not very exciting. I was never really drawn to the main character. The book lacked any huge surprises or plot twists. In my opinion, the book is not really worth reading."

    "I wanted to read a good book or novel about golf and found Dead Solid Perfect. This is a classic golf novel and it was very well written.

    "I thoroughly enjoyed myself reading this book as it is about women and their relationships, with their kids, their friends, their mothers, and their lovers, and the challenges of navigating them all while striving to reach goals of self-actualization at the same time. It was obviously about golf, that I would get lost, not being a golfer myself. But I loved the way the author handled that part of it. it is a good book."
