Not all of them were so ridiculously whiny, but the main ones were.
Some of the others pretty much just constantly yelled at the whiny ones for being so whiny.
Others really weren't present in the story at all - such as Cora. She was pretty much the antagonist, and when scenes featured her, she just kind of seemed fake... Which is half of what the whiny characters complained about.
Now, don't get me wrong, some of what the characters said was pretty amusing. Mostly at first; after a while, I was right with the parents wanting to yell at them.
It was an okay book; I really like the idea / message behind it, but I think it would've been better if all of the characters were a little better. Like... better developed, had more meaningful interactions, etc. They were all pretty shallow until the end, where suddenly, Kevin was the wise master who gives advice to change lives forever, despite the fact that a chapter ago he was also being whiny / yelling / annoying. And then Nicole pouts... which we don't really see, of course... and suddenly, she's a changed woman. It was a really weird shift, and I didn't really feel that the ending was quite adequate. The way things with Laura were left was fine, but what happened with Andrew? And Cora? I think something more than the one message Nicole left would have been nice, because with the way it is, I'm more likely to believe that they're all just going to continue being petty and selfish and not talking to each other and that the phone call was just a one-time thing Nicole did while she was in a good mood, than I am to believe that that one phone call fixed everything with everyone.
Overall.... I'd say it doesn't quite live up to its fantastic title.
Note: I received this book for free through Goodreads Giveaways.
Overall, I liked this book, can't say it's my favorite one but it is a great book. The author did a great job, will be checking out her other books.
I had fun reading about Nicole, she is this young woman who for moments acts like a teenager but in a comprehensible way. We have flashbacks to understand her relationship with her brother and also his fiancee so we can understand why she behaves the way she does.
There are other characters and each one brings something to the story: the supportive girlfriend Laura, the fun cousin Ella, Nicole's mother, a group of crazy bridesmaids and more people, who put their part to make the story go on.
The story presents a town that seems taken out a comedy, I had tons of fun reading about it and the people who live there.
Something I loved about this book, is that the main character doesn't have a love story. It's not the typical: "Main character finds the love of her life and changes her life for the better" or maybe "main character leaves her current partner to find her true soul mate". Nooo, this time the story is about love but not the romantic type. She already has a girlfriend (yes, she is homosexual and you know what the author doesn't make a fuss about it, it's natural and I loved it).
The story, in general, is entertaining and you will read chapter after chapter without noticing it.
