There's no doubt about it, breakups suck. But in the first few hours or days or weeks that follow, there's one important truth you need to recognize: Some things can't and shouldn't be fixed, especially that loser who dumped you or forced you to dump him.

Would you listen to It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken again? Why?

I wish this book were more geared for people in their 30s and up - when the loss is more severe and painful. When I was in my 20s, break-ups were awful - but now that I'm older, they're agonizing, and a lot more serious.

Would you recommend It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken to your friends? Why or why not?

Maybe for someone in their 20s.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The male narrator was kind of annoying.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

No idea.

Any additional comments?

Sorry - I was disappointed. He's Just Not That Into You was genius work. This book was still okay - it just was way too 'cutesy' than how awful I am feeling right now. This book makes me feel old, and more abandoned than ever because I'm not in my 20s where it was easier to bounce back.
