Lunacy & Laudanum
Screwed up childhood & parents, loving best friend, hardships, heartbreak and angry boyfriend lol... yup, this pretty much sums me up. Was extremely entertaining to read, once I got past the narrator's voice! Can't wait for the next one!!
Loved the book! <3
This story is one that I have read and re-read at least 5 times and now I get to enjoy it even more because I can switch back and forth to the audio book.
You will find yourself laughing, crying and mad at the characters over and over again. You may even find yourself with a new book boy friend. If you have too difficult a time with the narration please, please give the book a chance with an e-copy or paper copy! Enjoy!!
If you want a recap of your most annoying relationship this is the book for you! It's about college kids thinking they know everything. The narrator's voice is the worst too!
This book sat in my library for months and months. I bought it and when I first listened I couldn't get past the narrators voice and the silliness of things like the nickname "Pigeon". After constantly seeing it on my suggested reads with good ratings I decides to finally give it a try. After getting past my annoyance with the narrator it was an ok read. I still have a few issues with parts being unbelievable. For instance, how things end in Vegas, that is not really realistic in my opinion, and I think the author could have developed that much better, which would have made this a whole other story. It was okay I guess, but not my favorite by any means.

The description of this book is quite misleading. It's actually the story of two young drama queens mistaking violent possessiveness for romance, enabled by their equally young and drama loving friends. The best thing that can be said of this book is how it accurately captures the tunnel vision of people so self-involved that a lethal tragedy merely serves as backstory to what they think is a great romance. The author acknowledges this, throwing in a few comments from minor characters, but seems to buy into the horse pucky. She lets her protagonists escape any repercussions - and certainly any remorse - from their distasteful and occasionally criminal actions. She filled the story with improbable situations, such as a Vegas made of broken kneecaps and 1970s cliches, self-made obstacles, and bad behavior.
I listened in vain to the end hoping for some growth. It was torturous to spend so much time with two characters so pathetic, so incapable of learning. I advise all potential buyers to spend their precious time elsewhere.
I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.
This book was highly recommended by a friend. We usually have the same taste in books, but I found this book annoying. I listened a second time and had to stop. I could possibly be the age of the characters. I have no interest in going tot the next book.
