Read in May, 2010

Um, rating 2 stars. I know, they've all been getting 2's lately but, I think, for entirely different reasons. I was pretty excited with this one. Thought I found a new author to read, being the author of many best sellers. To me the story and writing were just a bit off, for lack of a better word. The writing bounced around too much. One minute the story is in the present, then the past, then the main character (Cath, short for Catherine) is talking to the reader. Very inconsistent. Too sitcom-y (which the author actually admits to as part of the plot has the characters lives potrayed in a sitcom). Too unbelievable. I read in 2 days, but I had to actually force myself to read. I wanted it done and I wanted to have read a book on vacation. I actually found myself watching "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" for the 10th time, instead of reading. Probably won't read another Jane Green unless it falls into my lap for free.
