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.

    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!

    "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 :(

    Story
    "I would have slapped her if I could!!!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This could only be saved by a better plot.


    What was most disappointing about Jenna McCarthy’s story?

    The main character was unsympathetic and so whiny that I found it nauseating.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No.

    This book was funny and a story many 40 something year old women can relate to.

    "Enjoyed it"

    A little predictable but put together very well. I did enjoy it and it will likely be listened to again.

    Story
    "Awful"

    The main character in this book is a whiny, unintelligent woman. The story was predictable and angered me the entire time. It's extremely unrealistic and is sad how little self esteem and self awareness is portrayed in this book.
