it was ok
Read from April 13 to 17, 2011

If I hadn't had to read this book for a class, I would not have finished it. Although some parts of it were legitimately funny/poignant/insightful, the vast majority of the book was a pity-party about how much Cho was picked on as a kid, her drinking and drug problems, and her annoying self-loathing she experienced through the majority of her life. I imagine that, by including all the negative parts about ex-boyfriends and substance abuse, she was meaning to instill in people the idea that it is a battle that can be beaten. However, it was more annoying than inspiring and made the whole book a huge downer.
