I'm not usually a fan of chick lit. They all seem to follow the same theme: late 20's/early 30's career gal seeking love in the big city. And they're all written in first person, which I don't prefer. But not this book. While it is written in first person, the main character is 39 (almost 40, wow!). It took me a while to get used to the first person, somewhat sarcastic writing style, but when I did I really liked this book and found it very insightful. Highly recommended!
I was mildly annoyed by the end of the Prologue, and threw in the hat by chapter five. Couldn't stand the writing style...it seemed juvenile and, well, above all else...annoying. Others seemed to like it, however, based on the reviews I read prior to ordering it.
Didn't really care for this one. I thought Scarlett spent way too much time trying to justify her looks and REALLY if your so-called best friend resents you because you are more attractive than she is, then SHE ISN'T YOUR FRIEND!!!!
Since when is getting a man a competition? It shouldn't be, but sure feels that way with Pam. This woman came across as very bitter and I can see why she isn't in a relationship.
For me, the story just seemed to drag and Scarlett spent way too much time rambling. I found myself thinking more than once, "just get on with it already!"
I personally would have enjoyed this better if Scarlett just told Pam to piss off and live her life by her own rules and to hell what anyone else thinks...
