really liked it

This book represents everything I love and hate about chick lit.

For the first hundred pages or so, I actively despised all three of the main female characters. They were your typical young, beautiful, college-educated, well-to-do New York gals, with all their typical dramatic lives. Oh, no! My apartment is sooooo small. Oh, no! My fabulous job as an editor isn't enough to counteract my mild OCD. Oh, no! I'm reaching thirty and no longer a viable candidate for male interest. (You know the drill. Apartment, job, boyfriend--it's always one of those.)

But then...but then...I got sucked in. As I always do.

There's something about a woman on a quest for her HEA that I simply cannot resist. I continued to dislike the women for the rest of the book. I wanted to bitch-slap them every time they whined. I'm pretty sure they will all end up unhappy and divorced by 40 anyway, simply because they're the type of people who will always find something to complain about.

And yet...and yet...I rooted for them anyway. As I always do.
