Say something about yourself!
Truly I think this one is best read with your eyes.
I couldn't get through the 2nd chapter - the narative vocals REALLY got on my nerves.
The stories are cute sometimes but the book as a whole seemed disjointed. I was never sure where it was going.
It was a solid okay. It followed the stories of several girls who met in college.
Great title. I expected more.
Also a bit boring.
Probably not. Once was enough, but I don't tend to listen to books more than once.
Yes- she has a good sense of women and their idiosyncrasies.
Between 20 and 30
A better understanding of how the characters were related to each other. The stories, though entertaining individually, felt so disjointed to me.
No. It was a bit flat. Character development was begun on some characters and then abandoned. Definitely skewed more towards Isabella and skipped over a lot of the other characters.
No. It wasn't a bad listen but I'm the same age as the characters and I could barely relate. It was a strange "story" because it never went anywhere.
It just never went anywhere - you follow different girls from a large group of friends over a 10 year period and in the end they all just settle it seems like.
I could see it as a TV series on The CW.
I probably wouldn't listen to anything else by this author.
I was disappointed with how innocuous this story was - it reminded me of a more boring version of a reality TV show following post-graduates in the US. Being 29, I certainly can relate to the progression of all your friends getting married, the early stages of growing a career, going out with your friends and getting drunk, and the oh-so-wrong-for-you guys that girls tend to date, but instead of feeling connected to these characters, I was disgusted with how pathetic they were. I didn't find any of the jokes funny and the author even did a good job of making the characters sound like they were 22-25, It's just that they had nothing worthwhile to say. Now, I don't usually read books like this (or watch these types of chick flick movies) because as you can tell I do not find it entertaining, but a friend told me that the book's characters would remind me of other friends. If I remind someone of any character in this book, I am incredibly embarrassed...
Actually her performance was spot on...it's the book that was terrible.
Disgust, disappointment, couldn't wait to finish the book so I never had to hear the story's conversations again.
Even if you love chick flicks and reality tv following early to mid-20s girls story lines, I still don't think you will like this book or maybe I'm wrong. Someone recommended it to me, so I guess there are a couple people who found it entertaining.
I *loved* this story- however I hated the voices the narrator gave the girls. The girls live in NYC- they aren't valley girls!!!
