This review is from: The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing (Paperback)
This book is badly written. The cover likens it to "Diary of Brigid Jones" but it's nowhere in that league. Throughout almost the entire book, the mood and narration is dark, with the headstrong "heroine" jumping from one dysfunctional relationship to another, lonely and full of insecurities. This part was fine.
But all of a sudden, in the last chapter, she meets Mr. Right, and finds out that--gasp-- she has not been able to find Mr. Right beforehand because of her overreliance on reading self-help books and acting how "everyone" told her women should act. NOWHERE beforehand in the book does she even mention a self-help book or playing into some mold of "only call back after three days" etc; the ending is a complete cop-out. Even the style of the writing does a 360 in order to try and sell. Most of the book left me unsatisifed or sad, but the last chapter or two just plain annoyed me. This writer just tried way too hard to create a chick-novel.
