The cover jacket of this novel talks about what do when your life falls short of your dreams and the sacrifices that commitment requires. Sounds interesting but the reality is that it is a actually 2nd person rant about an egotistical, immature, self-centered woman who for some reason never clues in to her extremely, insenstive, reckless behaviour and never seems to learn from her experiences. Unbelievably, the lead character, Hannah, has her own peculiar sense of semantics exactly like Bill Clinton had when he said "I never had sex with that woman". Hard to believe that a whole novel was written based on this same concept albeit from a female perspective. The writing is neither "Original" nor does it have "unflinching gaze;" Instead it is a whiny, repetitive "me me me" monologue and is an utter waste of time.
