did not like it

So I'm a big fan of chick-lit and this book came recommended to me by another librarian. Recommended!! Honestly I can't imagine why anyone would recommend this book. It is terrible!! I love books about young twenty-somethings figuring out who they are and books about thirty-somethings making a life for themselves. I love relationship books. I thought this book had all the components to make me really enjoy it. I can enjoy even the silliest chick-lit novel. But come on. All these characters were so annoying I can't imagine anyone wanting to be their friend, much less date them. Ummm... I think there is a reason some of these ladies are still single. This is a book filled with insecure, unsuccessful, and obnoxious women, yuck. The worst was the quasi main character Isabella. She doesn't like the city but yet becomes upset when someone suggests leaving it. She doesn't like her boyfriends friends, complains about her own friends, feels uncomfortable EVERYWHERE, hates her job then gets a new one and still complains. Complain, complain, complain omg! I think she is mentally ill and needs medication. Some of the other girls are less annoying but not by much. They all complain about their married friends but are sooooo jealous because they too aren't getting married. I don't understand the point of this book. Oh and it had no real end, it just ended. No point, annoying characters, whiny insecure overly analyzed problems. Reader beware!

Tara Taylor I so agree with you, when it just ended I was such a loss I kept reading with the hope that it would soon get good but it just never happens
