Disappointment From One of My Favorite Authors
on June 17, 2010
I love, love, love Jennifer Weiner's books. I've read everything I could get my hands on that she has written-including short stories. I bought this book upon immediate release and curled up to read it with anticipation. Unfortunately, I found myself waiting for the stortyine to pick up and to fall in love with the characters. I also found myself struggling to keep reading the book and that has NEVER happened while reading Weiner's work. By the time I did finish the novel I sat there stunned. I was completely disappointed by the unoriginal plot and the fact that I never could get into any of the characters. I placed the book upon the shelf with every other published piece by Weiner and sighed. I am hoping her next release brings brack the freshness and the colorful characters that Weiner is known for. Hey--no one is perfect, I'm giving Weiner a pass on this book and will wait anxiously for the next.
