I listened to this book during the 12 hours it took me to drive from West Virginia to Georgia. I loved every moment of it and would spend more time in my car than necessary just to see what would happen. Many times I had to pull my car over just so I could wipe my tears away, as corny as it sounds. I laughed, I cried (a lot), and I loved it way more than the movie. A great read for anyone. The only book I have read from this author, but I definitely plan on adding some others to my growing to be read list.
Instead of bringing one down, upon the loss of a spouse, this book shows how a young woman can grow, with wit, charm and some sadness to learn to live again. I loved this book and it is a "must read" for getting over losses without being preachy. Wonderful reading.
I laughed, I cried, I reminised... this is a book of love, loss and readjustments. There are some unexpected twists and turns...just like real life deals to you. The ending was just right...leads you to the conclusion, but does not carry you thru...You are left to go with your imagination...and that makes it so satisfying.
A book worth the read....
For the most part, this was a highly enjoyable book. I had a few issues with it that would be spoilers so I won't write about them. It does have some hilarious moments and other incredibly touching moments. Altogether this was a very good first book from a very young writer.
Such a memorable book! You think you know the ending part way through, but NO! I love this book and highly recommend it to all Chick Lit fans.
