Read from January 30 to 31, 2012

I guess i liked it, but not as much as i had hoped. It seemed like it shouldve been more romantic, but the main character was SO Self-absorbed that there was very little about it which was truly romantic.

It also had an odd rhythm to it. Throughout the book i felt like somebody threw Fannie Flagg and a chick lit author and a literary fiction scribe into a burlap sack and just let them rassle over writing style. The story cant make up its mind what kind of book to be so it stays tthis indifferent compromise throughout.

I dont plan on trying the sequels.
