Publisher's Summary

"I don't love you anymore."

For Charlotte Crawford, the worst part about being dumped after 20 years of marriage is that her husband, Jack, doesn't want another woman; he just doesn't want her.

Forty-two and clueless, Charlotte is a fish out of water in a dating pool teeming with losers. Just when she thinks she's finally put her failed marriage behind her, it comes back to bite her in the ass...hard. Without warning, Charlotte finds herself staring down the barrel of a future she wouldn't (she would totally) wish on her worst enemy.

Engaging, fearless, and relentlessly funny, Pretty Much Screwed is a story of love, loss, friendship, forgiveness, turtledoves, taxidermy, and one hilariously ill-placed tick.

    Story
    "The mispronunciations drove me crazy!"

    I had so many issues with this book, from the unlikeable main character, to the sudden choppy time jumps to the narration. The mispronunciation of fidelity and divorcée among others were unacceptable at this level.

    "Meh"

    Nothing exceptional. I figured out a main plot point in the first few chapters but hoped I was wrong. Wasn't. Characters aren't really exceptional

    Story
    "Charlotte makes you want to pull your hair out"

    There were conversations in the book that I found myself relating to and moments that I did enjoy the story line but Charlotte made so many bad decisions that I found myself not wanting to finish the book because I was afraid of what she would do next.

    If there is a guy like Jesse in real-life, please send him my way.

    "Totally relatable plot line!"

    I feel most women could relate to this plot line. I laughed out loud several times! Used the "f" word a few times throughout so not a good one to listen to at the office :(

    "easy listening"

    Easy to listen to. Likable characters. Made my drive home fly by. Great light story of love and life after divorce.

    Story
    "Anti-feminist drivel"

    Weak female characters whose happiness or unhappiness depend exclusively on whether or not there is a man in their lives. The main character gets divorced and the only thing she does is focus on getting in a new relationship. Completely pathetic and stereotypical. Punctuate all this with constant commentary about eating, gaining weight, losing weight, waistlines, breast size.... It's atrocious. I can't understand all the positive reviews. Do yourself a favor and skip this one!

    Story
    "Laugh out loud funny, honest and true."
    Any additional comments?

    Loved everything about this book and did not want it to end. It was funny, honest and true. Exploring the lives of women who get divorced in their early 40s felt fresh and appropriate, like "Sex and the City" 20 years later (minus the Monolos and the tired city girl persona, thank god) and the narrator really nailed the characters. Lots of fun plot twists kept the story moving at a clip. Books this fun don't come along often enough. Bravo!

    "Meh"

    I really didn't expect all the language in this book. F bombs dropped frequently and seemed out of character and an attempt to make the writing/storyline better (which it didn't). The main character is miserable and self sabotaging.
    The storyline is predictable. I would not recommend this to a friend.

    Greedy, voracious reader since age five. After a number of eye injuries & surgeries, reading is hard. So now, I listen.

    Story
    "remember 'Gag me with a spoon'?"

    Requisite mentions of 'gender equality' aside, this meshuga book is a throwback to the days of 'Never tell a man the truth, if you want to keep him!'
    In 2016? Shameful. Outdated. Disgusting.

    "Charlotte is a train wreck!"

    Charlotte is a train wreck you just cannot look away from! This audiobook raised my blood pressure because I wanted to shake her until she was whoozy! I actually stopped listening for a couple of hours just to calm down!
