If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
Ok I suppose of you are a teenager or in your twenties and the most serious relationship you have ever had lasted a year tops. You finish with nothing and no one to worry about other than yourself and which shoes will you buy next.Try being nearly 50, with a 25 year relationship crashing and a tone of responsibilities left on your shoulders. I think loneliness has a different meaning then.With the exception of a couple of chapters I found this book childish, stupid and an utter waste of time. Maybe is an age thing.
The way the narrator tried to change her voice between the early chapters was almost offensive and irritating . The book itself "the terrible loneliness of being single and why it will be ok". Every chapter until the last final 5 minutes of the book were about why being single is the worst, most depressing pathetic stage of life. The "bad" was highlighted in excruciating painful snarky slit-your-wrist now detail. The "good" was equally depressing as in " yay. You can even masturbate standing in the living room in front of the window". Yes perspective readers, that is supposed be one of the "positive" aspects of being single.
I'm all for sarcastic humor, but chose the book for the "and why it is all going to be ok".
This book is for you if:
you are on the fence of being depressed over being single, and need help getting to full blown depression. Or
You just got out of a horrible relationship and need to wallow in the negative aspects of being in a relationship.
I did stay to the end some what out of curiosity, the way I'll watch a really horrible movie thinking that eventually surely it will get better. Also because I wanted to see if there would ever be any "and it will be OK advice." (Which was basically you'll live through ).
