Snippets of autobiographical vignettes, showcasing many different types of women and their various relationships. It was easy for me to empathize with the women and I found myself resenting the men, and in response, my own husband. This was fun while it lasted but I don't think it really was useful. In nearly every case, I wished for a continuation of story. I think I would really each woman to be made the main character of her own full size chicklit novel, complete with picture perfect happy ending. :-)

Beth yes... I agree. Am I mis-remembering or did we start reading this book in a virtual book group (that disappeared?) this chicklit came off as too angry at men, and not taking enough responsibility for one's own happiness.
