This book is one long whine. Yes, domestic violence against men, women, and children is a horrible issue and should in no way be excused. Yes, our pasts shape us and affect us and who we become. But, at some point, when reading a novel, I want to see some growth, some ray of hope, something to learn from. Up until the last chapter, all I got was a girl telling herself over and over how horrible she is. I get that she was a tortured soul, but she *refused* to do anything about it!
"No, my therapist is an idiot and a bitch and I refuse to see her anymore!"
"No, my friend who has stood by my side for years and supports and loves me unconditionally doesn't actually love me!"
"No, I don't deserve any love!"
And on and on it went. Paragraph after paragraph of self-deprecation and complete intellectual dishonesty. The book could have been about 1/2 as long, and it still would have been way too much rehashing of the same exact feelings over and over again.
There was zero character or relationship development that didn't have something to do with trauma. I wish the author had allowed the rest of the character's lives to shape them and their actions rather than making every single person plagued, troubled, and only defined by what other people had done to them in the past.
The hero was totally unrealistic. The climax/change was ridiculous. I wish I could get my two hours back.
I know I'm in the minority of the readers, but this book was just okay for me. It was too angsty, dramarama, and self-involved -- in an unrelenting, constantly needy sort of way. Every book needs some drama and angst, but this book has about 300 pages more than my limit (it's 430 pgs.)
The book switches points-of-view between the two main characters, which isn't something I have an issue with unless, as in this book, there's no noticeable style difference between the two people. The POV used for the male perspective just doesn't sound male. While the profanity and sexual content rises with the male perspective, the vocabulary is just too soft and romantic for a straight man who's clearly not metro-sexual. It just didn't feel real.
I'm not a fan of most reality TV, but the behavior in this book reminds me of some of the over-the-top caterwauling that makes good TV, so fans of that genre would probably really enjoy this book.
