Would you try another book from Andi Dorfman and/or Andi Dorfman?

Absolutely not. I got this book in hopes of hearing about what her experience as The Bachelorette was. What I got instead was a messy, scattered history of all the unimportant details of her life such as the size she wears, her favorite brand names and how terrible and useless her life is as a single woman and a size 6 (instead of a 4). She claims to be a feminist through the entire book by using vulgar language and justifying her sexual behavior by saying it's necessary to "test drive the car before buying." Oh, and don't worry there are enough "humble" brags scattered throughout each chapter to last you a lifetime. Not only was the story itself just awful, she narrates it like a naive high schooler from the valley. As far as this book is concerned, she is a naive, superficial little girl.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She brought up useless, boring details about her life that didn't matter. Mix that with her obnoxious narration style and I wanted to knock myself out.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Annoyance and embarrassment.
