did not like it
bookshelves: guilty-pleasure

Being unemployed, I really thought I could commiserate with the main character...boy, was I wrong. I had a hard time getting through it. The main character is whiny, self-loathing, self destructive and highly pretentious. I loathe people/characters that have self righteous and arrogant attitude towards life...which is in essence the main character. Adding insult to injury to a reader, the book is held together by a threadlike plot, with awful characterizations and an even random and disappointing ending.This is not saying the author is terrible writer (she is not) but the book as a whole needed an infinite amount of work.
