REally hard to get into. I skipped some of the book.
Eugh. Joan was shallow and uninteresting, and most of the supporting characters were as lifeless as cardboard cutouts. I just couldn't read the book straight through; after the first 40 pages or so, I was fed up and bored and just skimmed the rest.

In comparison to the middle and beginning, I have to say I liked the ending. If more of the story had involved the characters who were introduced in the last quarter of its pages, or if Joan had grown and developed as a character a tad quicker, I woul
It was a pretty good book. Joan/Jennifer kinda got on my nerves sometimes while I was reading, but I enjoyed the book overall for the most part. I liked Carrie; I thought she was a great character. I was expecting a different ending than the one that happened, based on the plot for the rest of the book.
This book started out funny, but ended up being a bit too much for me. While I liked some of the characters, I kinda wanted to slap the heroine. It was, however, well written.

Witty writing that attacks real (or the lack thereof)relationship issues. I've been through a lot of what this character goes though, so it was nice to realize not all relationship decisions are sane & that often the hormones we have blind us & keep us from seeing the obvious truth. Deep thinking aside, the character is personable and often quite hilarious. Good chiclit for sure.
Joan, the main character, was well written. I think the author wrote accurately about how many women feel at the start of relationships - and how we over think things. Joan was able to laugh at herself. She did have a bit of a dark side but luckily got back on track.

Read this book for my chick lit book club (definitely wouldn't have picked it up on my own), it was a very cute, witty, quick little read. The book as a whole was rather easy to relate to and I just loved Joanie (Carrie is was a hoot as well!).
Writing was awful. The main character was not likable, and kind of a loser. Eventually she turns her life around but her attitude was irritating and overly sarcastic one liners were overused.
I liked the beginning and the end-but the ENORMOUS mistakes she made in the middle were a little hard to stomach. I would have liked a little more into the future, maybe an epilogue.
This book was very dry and almost boring to me, I thought it sounded good on my sister in laws coffee table but when reading it, it was almost a chore.
aside from needing a bit better of an edit/copyedit (for example, something rips a "whole" in a trash bag (ack) ), this was an amusing read.
Started out very funny. Probably should have stopped reading when the main character really began to annoy me. She never redeemed herself to me.

I started this once a few years ago and just couldn't get into it. But when I picked it up to read now I finished it off in not time.

This book had some very funny moments...enjoyable but not my my favorite...ending leaves you hanging or open to sequel...
Good book! Especially the twist at the end, which kept it from being just another chick lit title.
I did not like this book. Boring and trivial. The plot is solid but the characters were not relatable.
good chick read. really easy read. I think I identified with all the men she dated a little too much.
I enjoyed it
Funny... Loved it.
awful awful awful
