I can only think of a single character that is likeable in this book... Aunt Diane. When you don't care about any of the main players, you don't care about the plot. First, my problems with Libby, she said she didn't know things, she grew up feral, etc. She didn't even know you were supposed to change sheets. BULLSHIT. She spent 8 years with her Aunt Diane and 8 with her mother. Let's say Patty was a complete miss as a mother, Diane was not. She would have learned all of this with her, so right from the beginning, I disliked Libby and her excuses about how the world owed her.
I grew up with someone who survived a similar tragedy when his mother's boyfriend in a jealous rage killed her, his brother, his sister and almost him before the police shot him dead. It happened when we were just about to go to high school and he spent a whole summer in the hospital recuperating. He had a tragic past, but he was not unlikeable or tragic.
No, I'm done. Gone Girl and this proved that she is not an author I will ever enjoy. She goes into the pile that has Charlaine Harris, E.L. James and J.D. Robb.
They were all pretty much weak, pathetic, obnoxious, etc. I could care less what happened to any of them.
All of them.
Could I get my credit back?
No. I am all done with this author and narrator. I understand the author wrote fanfiction. It's too bad some publisher picked her over the hundreds of others I have read. This book was not erotic, well written or even interesting. The plot was missing, these characters had no spart and I did not buy the attraction for one minute. The overuse of 'holy', 'inner goddess', 'oh my', 'hot' and 'Christain Grey" made this book more annoying than anything else. Once you sleep with a man, he loses his last name forever. When the main character spends so much time wondering why he picked her, we start to feel the same way because she comes off as boring and unreal. We are supposed to believe that she has never had a relationship by the time she is 22? She lives with the editor of the school newspaper who comes from a wealthy urban family and has remained 'naive'? EL spend some time watching American television and you will realize there is no way thsi person exists.
Absolutely NOT. She is horrible and should stand aside to let better performers obtain the job.
The emails, and the endless talks with her subconvious and inner goddess.
I wish I could get my cedit back!
