The author's voice drove me crazy. I think it would have been better if Amiira had read the entire book, with little snip its from Greg. It might not be so bad if you were to read it your self. Overall, it's a good book for someone right after their break up. If you wait a little while you might feel past some of this stuff.
I bought the audio the next day after a break up of a 5 year relationship (he dumped me), and it has helped me tremendously in getting through this. It has helped me save a great deal of my dignity and see a positive side to this whole situation. I would definitely recommend it.
Y'all, I just had a breakup. The BAD kind. After ten years of friendship and two years of "being together," my dude (whom I'd been in love with basically forever) dumped me... via drunk text message. Of course this single act confirmed my worst suspicions about his character, but that's neither here nor there. I spent several days wailing on my parents' couch and then several days crying on the phone to my best friends, then I decided to become a breakup superhero and recover by listening to self-help audiobooks on the elliptical. This is the first book I tried, and it was perfect. It's not particularly "deep" and it's not somber, and there's no hokey spirituality (which I abhor). There are breakup stories that will make you feel like you're really doing awesome (even if you're chain-smoking and crying on your front porch in front of your whole nosy neighborhood, as I was). I just generally feel way better now, and this book (plus the cardio) is why. I think you should go ahead and get it.
This is helpful during the desperate time after a breakup, but the male narrator is annoying af. I had to skip several of his parts because he was infuriatingly corny.
Seriously, so true & hits home in the most humorous way.
When he doesn't contact you, that should tell you that the relationship is over for him and he doesn't want to be in touch with you. No brainer right? But you can totally make up so many "Stories" to explain reasons why...Maybe he got eaten by a lion?
I read He's just not that into you...This performance was Perfect. I'm a little particular about the way voices sound (e.g does it sound canned/read from a script or natural? Is the pace too fast or "I am going to shoot myself" slow, is the pitch or tone too high/low?) They sounded like you were hanging out with friends laughing & talking about relationships which I loved!
A spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down...no wait, that's already been done. How about Tough Love that's easy to swallow....Hmmm, maybe not; they might think it's porn or a How to.
Love this book. A definite yes. Yes. YES!
The honest truth told to you so you don't lose the good friends you have.
This is a fantastic book full of great advice and some laughs at a time when it's most needed. I have listened to it again and again to help me gain valuable perspective while I went through my own painful breakup. The lighthearted humor made it easy to turn to when I felt like contacting or even just thinking about my ex. HIGHLY recommend to anyone going through a break up or just thinking about breaking up.
It's amazing to me that this book was written by the same author as "He's Just Not That Into You." While I really enjoyed the first book, I think this book was full of fluff and very little substance. Maybe Liz was the mastermind behind the original message. I just wasn't into this one.
Ladies, we all know that we can't go wrong when we purchase this book.
But what I was disappointed is that the narrator is not Greg but another guy!!!! His tone seems okay but not as real as Greg though.
