A friendly, refreshing narrator

by koalalala on Feb 11, 2014

I found myself enjoying this book from the first page. It felt like hearing the interesting twists and cutting observations of a dear friend's lifestory. The first two thirds of the book flew by. But I found the later part dragged. Falling back on the marriage plot and/or search for love as a resolution seemed staid, and old-fashioned compared to the freshness of the main character's perspective. I also thought that the events of the latter section were told with less of the immediacy and rich details that so enthralled me in the beginning and middle. Despite the flat ending, I highly recommend this. To paraphrase the sentiments of the main character, there's more to this book than mere plot points.
