This book would normally represent everything I hate trite, cliched, mindless fiction, aimed solely at women and their issues This book did suffer from that, not going to lie, the plot is pretty laughably transparent and some of the stereotyping is truly amazing, but despite all those things I enjoyed this book for one reason and one reason only I did not realise it was written in 1998 and it brought back so many memories of my early days on the internet So many things made me take a wander through my nostalgic memories So for that reason only I liked it.
I started out really liking this book Victoria was a funny, normal woman Not some airhead who acted like a character from some G rated Christian women s film Then, when we got into all the stuff with Pierre, it was like she became a hysterical self righteous psycho Still, it was better than most of the stuff I ve read lately.

AsC l ã Single White E-mail ¼ This was not a bad book, and it kept me entertained for a couple of hours, but I don t believe it s a book I would read again or recommend to a friend.
To be honest, it was rather difficult for me to even get past the first chapter At the start of the book, main character Victoria Shepworth is wallowing in self pity after a break up Now, I m not quite as old as Victoria so I don t know if I would have the same reaction as her to a break up at the age of 30, but I felt her internal monologue which took up a good 40 pages of the 400 page book wasreminiscent of a 13 year old than a 30 year old This was quite frustrating, particularly as she only really seems to evolve from this mindset in the last few dozen pages.
