I love to read serious books, but every now and then, I need a little light-hearted humor and laughter. I was able to read through this book very quickly, and it was pretty enjoyable. You should read this if you're looking for wacky, out-there situations that will make you laugh at the sheer ridiculousness of the situations. Some of the commentary was right on point, and I loved when I agreed with the character's observations and social commentaries.
There were a few elements that I really disliked about this book, however. First, the plot was pretty transparent. Generally, with chick-lit, you know where it's going and how you get there is really what matters. But at the same time, I still value a few moments of unpredictability before the ending that you know is going to come. I think she tried to throw a few of those curveballs in without very much success.
Secondly, where was her editor? There are glaring typos, misused, and misspelled words. I almost couldn't believe it. In addition, there were a few cliche phrases the author uses over, and over in the same situation. Could have used some variety. For example, whenever she speaks to her mother, her voice "goes up an octave." Funny the first time, not so funny after the fifth.
All in all, it was exactly what I expected (minus the bad editing), so I can't really fault it. I enjoyed reading it, I got through it quickly, and it was just the light read that I was looking for.
I thought this book was very cute and pretty well-written. Although the story borders on ridiculous, it did make me think about my "number", where society would place me on the scale of prude to slut and if it really matters in the end. There is no mention of STDs or HIV, unfortunately. I think that would have made the book a lot less fluffy but there are very interesting and vivid characters throughout that really pushes the story along and makes you want to find out who she discovers next on her journey.
This book is so FUNNY!!!! One of my new favorites! Very well written. I couldn't put it down and finished it in one sitting!! DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!!!
