There's really no plot to this book. It's more like a chat with a friend about all sorts of things that would interest a young 20-something - loser boyfriend, boring job, jerk of a boss, etc. However, it's not lighthearted or funny in the way Bridget Jones's Diary is. I found the lead character depressing. Much as I tried, I couldn't get into this book despite several attempts to make a go of it. I gave up half way because I refused to plod through another 100 pages just to say that I finished the book.
I thought this was a really funny book!
I liked this one. It's slow-moving but funny.
One of the best mother-daughter acts of all time. It is a funny, elegant and compelling book.
Good book. Reminds me alot of "Ask Again Later" by Jill A. Davis
eh- a book about a woman with depression who has absolutely no reason to be depressed. i do understand that depression is a mental issue but i have to say that this book makes me want to scream at this lady to just get over it and move on! (and i do indeed suffer from depression- funny, no?) it was an ok book but pretty much pointless. the mother was the only thing that kept me going. do yourself a favor- skip this book and read something worth it...
a great entertaining read. women can definitely relate to the neurosis of the main character
I loved this book - I had a lot in common with the character Shannon Olson who seems to be based on the author.
This book is in excellent condition. Very funny, sometimes touching.
