Publisher's Summary

Wanna break up? There's an app for that.

Dexter meets Girlfriend's Guide to Divorce in this snarky black comedy that follows Eris as she toys with people's lives.

When 25-year-old Eris gets fired from her minimum-wage job, she stumbles on her friend's startup which outsources bad news to people. But will she manage to keep her friendships intact when she finds out she's very good at delivering breakups, when demand is really picking up, and when the recipients don't take to the news too kindly?

Inspired by the Greek Goddess of discord Eris and by today's app services obsession.

Do you want to meet Eris? Do you want to see the waterworks? Then listen to this black comedy that will make your heart break.

Eris Is Awesome!

Would you listen to Heartbreaker Episode 1 again? Why?

Yes. This was a very strong first episode and I am looking forward to sharing it with friends.

Which scene was your favorite?

The ice cream scene at the beginning.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. It's short and sweet.

Any additional comments?

I thought this was an exciting and funny title. I was smiling in amazement for a good portion of the book. Eris is something else!

The pacing is just right.

The narrator, Kathy Vogel, was perfect for reading this. I really hope she does all the future episodes involving Eris.

This was worth the time spent listening to it. I have to highly recommend this one. This title was very refreshing and humorous. I will definitely be looking for more from this author/narrator duo. I am really looking forward to future episodes.

Crazy but true, I could see this become a reality

What happens when you put a girl who thrives on chaos in charge of splitting people up? Your success goes sky high. Eris, inspired very clearly by the goddess of discord, is hell on wheels, and after getting fired (taking her friend down with her) wanders about aimlessly until she takes a gig in which she is hired to break up unwitting partners so that their soon to be ex doesn't have to get their hands dirty. She proves to be a total success, and I could see a company actually making money doing this. I even appreciated the mention of the Golden Apple.

Vogel is energetic in her reading, and george is spot on in his writing.

Interesting

take a girl Eris who can't hold a job a friend with a startup and you find the best pairing.
Eris is a bit on the morbid side but she finds her life job in giving bad news and enjoys it.
I wish the story was a bit longer for sure but as a teaser it's great.
the narrator was fabulous, she made you want to continue to listen to rest of the story.
I was gifted this audio book and have given this review to the best of my ability.
my final word is listen to or read this book if you are into dark comedy.

Very cute

Better than I expected honestly.
The MC is very much like myself. Not really enjoying the negative events, only taking them in stride and moving on. She thinks everyone else should too, but that isn't how the world works, is it?
Will be looking for new episodes as they release.

Good quick read

Heartbreaker Episode 1: A God Complex Black Comedy was a great quick read. Eris is 25 years old and gets fired from her job. She stumbles on her friends business that delivers bad news but it can ruin her relationships. I cant wait to read more of this series.

Short and hilarious black comedy!

This is a short and crazy black comedy. Eris was really something else! This was my first George Saoulidis's book and my first listen to Kathy Vogel's voice. I absolutely love the narration. Kathy brings life to Eris and she really act as she like delivering breakups for someone else. Good start in the Series.

Very funny story

BOOK REVIEW......
This was a very funny story. Loved the main character. I'm looking forward to the rest of the story.

NARRATOR REVIEW.......
I have to say at first I didn't like the narrator but by about half way through I couldn't image anyone else doing it.

A Job Breaking Hearts

I received a copy for a voluntary and honest review.

We meet Erin working a shop with her friend and manages to get herself and her friend fired...angering her friend and seeking employment.
She discovers that her talent, and money making abilities involve breaking hearts...and it doesn’t bother her.
Lots of funny and edgy dialogue...as episode 1 there should be more of a story and definitely interesting and funny.
The narrator was perfection! She added to the story making it even more entertaining...she is fantastic!
Well worth the listen or read for lots of fun!

Not for me...

Im disappointed because I thought I would really like this one, but I just couldn't get into this story. If it had been longer I wouldn't have finished it. There were a few funny parts that kept me listening hoping it would get better. It didn't. The narration wasn't much better, too dramatic, over the top peppy.
