Nothing. This was an awful read and I’m amazed by the good reviews of it through the years.
What did not work:
Racist. Boring. In serious need of an editor. Not funny at all. I seriously judge people who are laughing reading this.
Was recommended this book by someone whose recommendations I usually love – but this is just not it. Boring, tedious and repetitive with no depth to any of the characters. It read more like a winding monologue in someone’s diary. I pressed on but had to give up at chapter 8, I was reading the same details over and over again. Skimmed the last chapter to see if I missed out on anything – nope. I did not like the main character at all, and could not really understand her decision-making behind her wanting to marry both men – who are clearly not a good match for her. If anything, the book provided some insight into the possible red flags that could come up in dating/marriages, and how to avoid getting in too deep (which is probably pretty simple – ceasing further involvement with these people).
