I liked Anatomy of a Single Girl even more than Anatomy of a Boyfriend. There was much more character growth in this novel, which I loved. There's nothing that I like to read about more than character growth, and to see positive change in many of the main characters was very gratifying. Dominique really comes into her own as an adult and that was my favorite thing about this book.
Snadowsky is very direct about sex. That was a little bit shocking for me while reading book one, but this time, I was ready for the candidness and I found myself appreciating it. Snadowsky's books are different from others in the genre. There is an emphasis on honesty and self-discovery, and I think that is very appropriate for the NA age group. Snadowsky also places a priority on safe sex, which I welcomed.
Anatomy of a Single Girl had an emphasis on friendships, and how friendships change as teens age, especially through the college years. I liked reading about Dominique and Amy's friendship and their ups and downs reminded me of my friends at that age.
As much as I enjoyed Snadowsky's directness, it almost made the book feel unemotional for me. I can't put my finger on it, but I wasn't as emotionally invested in the characters as I wanted to be. Dominique's voice was refreshingly different, but in the end I found myself wishing for more of a connection to her.
Despite my one complaint, I really enjoyed the Anatomy series and would definitely read Daria Snadowsky again.
Right of the bat it's safe to say that didn't quite love the first novel, but I still enjoyed it. It was blunt, it was interesting, and yes--it was sexy in some parts. The sequel is very much the same though I can say I enjoyed this one a bit more. There were some parts where Dom irritated me a bit and others that had me agreeing or relating to how she acted. I think what detracted from the story here, for me at least, was that I was waiting for Dom to go all out and have fun. For the most part she stayed in a singular repeated setting, never doing anything exciting until just before the end. I understand heartbreak to the fullest extent, however after reading more than enough pages of her sulking around about her ex, it got a little irritating. I would have liked her to have forgotten that loser early on and had fun, or explore the cute as heck thing going on at the beginning of the book with Calvin that was pretty much abandoned for another storyline with Guy that fell flat.
While reading I also discovered some things to be over-detailed and others to be under-detailed. Perhaps I've been spoiled over the past few months with other novels, but I feel like the sex scenes were a little too abrupt and didn't quite have enough passion--then again it shows how realistic this book is by showing a more practical approach to sex. (Hey, not everyone gets the rose petals, candles, and sensual R&B music playing in the background.Read more ›
Now that I am entering my last semester of college, I look back and see all the dumb mistakes I made along the way. I see the guy I thought I would never get over, and all the idiots, for lack of a better term, I dated in between. I see my fiancé and all the joy he has brought to me and I feel stupid for ever even pining over a guy the way I did my ex. In other words, I feel like Dom and I was really able to relate to her character. In fact, I am willing to argue that any girl who has ever had your heartbroken can and will relate to the events taking place in this book. Dom was realistic and not whiny like most girls after a breakup. I liked how her character handled relationships as well. She didn't just throw herself at the next available guy and she stood up for her morals when it came to Guy. She didn't sleep with him on the first date, and I think that is what we need in books. More girls with the desire to make sure a relationship is going in the right direction before making any serious moves.Read more ›
