The most comedic chick-lit book I have ever read.
I wanted to like it, but i found my self bored by the characters, not caring about them or what they were going to do next, the only character in the book that i found entertaining was Skorka, she was funny. The upside is the chapters are super short quick reads so you can put it down, which i found myself doing a lot. a fast read, but a boring one!
I liked the voice of this book, written in short stream of conscious musings. A woman who is used to playing it safe learns to take risks and live.
So-so chicklit, enlivened by sassy writing but flawed by the main character, who comes off as a self-centere twit, despite the author's attempts to give her a sympathetic backstory.
Easy read. Offbeat and funny chick lit.
I just loved this book it was hilarious!
Although I heard that this book was very well written, It just wasn't my forte...but that's my opion.
I loved this book very humorous chick lit type.
Eat, Drink, Gossip...Who said Poker Night was just for the Guys?
Dissatisfied both with writing a Single Girl on the Edge/Ledge/Verge column and with her boyfriend, Ruby Capote sends her best columns and a six-pack of beer to the editor of The New York News and lands herself a job in the big city. There, Ruby undertakes the venerable tradition of Poker Nighta way (as men have always known) to eat, drink, smoke, analyze, interrupt one another, share stories, and, most of all, raise the stakes.
When Ruby falls for her boss, though, all bets are off. What happens when Mr. Right has his own unresolved past? As smart as it is laugh-out-loud funny, Girls Poker Night is a refreshingly upbeat look at friendship, work, and love.
Ruby Capote, the narrator of Girls' Poker Night, is your quintessential New York cynic. This persona serves her just fine in her job as a humor columnist; she's unafraid to write the most humiliating details about herself or her friends, because she truly doesn't care. But over the course of a year or so of Wednesday night poker parties with her pals, Ruby is forced to face her past--especially her sorrow over her father, who committed suicide after he left Ruby's mother. Meanwhile, Ruby comes to terms with her budding feelings for Michael, the editor of her newspaper, who, in a neat twist, turns out to be estranged from his only child (shades of Ruby's lost father). Davis, a former writer for The Late Show, does a fine job of maintaining Ruby's sharp humor while leading her through a minefield of emotional discovery
I was actually surprised by how much I enjoyed this quick read. Fun!
I expected this to be funnier than I found it, but that didn't end up being a bad thing. There were funny moments, but they were intermingled with some very sad moments as the main character tries to sort through the things that have been keeping her from love without her realizing it.
It reminded me of The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros, both in style and in the somewhat amusing, somewhat poignant writings of the main character. I really liked it.
QUICK read. Humorous! I enjoyed it alot!
