Obvious plot in far off destination
Isobel is possibly the most non self aware person on the planet. She’s vapid and relatively unlikable for most of the book, and this is possibly the first time I’ve found myself not even vaguely rooting for the main character of a book.
She suddenly decides her life is crap and goes haring across the planet in search of her ‘husband’ from when she was a kid. Not even someone she loved, just a friend who she ‘married’ in the playground - but sure, he must be ‘the one’.
Amusing exploits ensue and I did enjoy listening to the travel part of this novel, but every single interaction she had with another human being was cringeworthy (including randomly hating on another character who was nothing but nice to her) and I was looking forward to the fairly obvious ending.
I love chick lit and listen it almost exclusively but I really didn’t enjoy this book at all.
