Editorial Reviews

Review

"Girl gets boy and wishes she hadn't in this funny, refreshingly irreverent confection."
- People

"Szewczyk's debut is a clever blend of Shakespeare and Sex and the City with a touch of Binnie Kirshenbaum for good measure."
- Booklist

"[An] entertaining debut novel...with breezy prose, witty one-liners and goofball antics."
- Publishers Weekly

"When Szewczyk's novel strikes the right comedy note, it's dead on and hilarious... Szewczyk's writing is fast paced and frenetic-at times it's like talking to a good friend with a mild case of ADD. Kas and her crew are a hoot and a half, and this debut author definitely shows tons of promise."
- Romantic Times

"Why are pretty people often dumb? This timeless question is explored in Szewczyk's riotous novel of love and low IQs, I'm with Stupid."
- Time Out New York

"Szewczyk's cheerfully caustic sense of humor is a delight.... Recommended for all popular fiction collections."
- Library Journal

"Fun romp."
- Chicago Tribune; picked as a 2008 Hot Summer Read

Format: Paperback
Kas is a young woman in NY who is faced with the reality that "not all guys are who you think they are - or wish they were". It goes from worse - to bad... from a narcissistic user to an unconscious idiot savant user. On the rebound Kas wakes up with a "12" in South Africa, until she actually hears what is coming out of his mouth in New York (or e-mails), to discover he's really only a"3" - reality, he is a savory mindless piece of eye candy. She has two lovely friends on her journey - Max a `have to have' friend (especially with any revenge anyone would like to sic on an X) and his less motivated sexy cousin, Libby. Kas not only learns that not only are the men she dates not who she thought they were, but neither are her parents or brother. It's a right of passage of a young woman meeting sheer reality in humor, on the rebound.

The book did too many side-track journeys. Characters are very interesting and entertaining. The book probably would appeal to more 20 - 30' year olds. The book I would recommend to a single woman (or man)- especially in the dating jungle finding her/his footing (I ordered it for a younger relative). I did have a few good giggles. The lower rating is probably my 40-ish age perspective.

I'm not one who usually reads this type of novel, but I heard from a friend I should give it a try...I was not disappointed to say the least. Ms. Szewczyk is funny, witty, and a great story teller. I really got into all the interesting characters in the book. I felt like I knew the three main charaters, Kas, Max, and especially Libby from real life. Ms. Szewczyk also gives you some great insight into the strange twists relationships can take, which are many in the story. I also appreciate her pride in her ethnicity! I enjoyed the times Kas is at her parents Polish deli, and the different interactions with her mother, father, and brother. Coming from an italian family, this is all so familiar. I feared for a very expected and tidy wind up to all the different plots going on, this did not happen and I thought the ending was perfect! I hope Ms. Szewczyk continues to write novels because I really enjoyed her first!

The book was interesting in the beginning, when they first made the trip to South Africa. Once they got to New York again, it became a little predicable. I have seen this storyline in tv shows, and to me it is an unrealistic story. I can't see it ever happening to someone. This book had it's humorous moments, but it just didn't have enough story or plot for me. It had it serious moments too. In fact, one moment about Kas and her brother Henryk had me tearing up. I think had the book mixed the serious and funny better, instead of trying to be so humorous all the time, it would have balanced out better. As it was, the book tried so hard to stay funny all the time that it became boring. It has moments similar to Sex and the City, which is a show I have never been a fan of. So if you like Sex and the City, you will probably like this book. Overall, I thought it was funny at times but boring at others.

Just finished this book after randomly picking it up at a bookstore. I have to say that the characters were hilarious and really interesting and the story did have me hooked. It had me laughing out loud at various points.

Only thing I will say against the book though, is that it trails off, quite often, into some long passages about things that are not very interesting and really quite unnecessary to the story.

Good book for a summer beach/ train to work read though- 4 stars so definitely worth picking up a copy!

And I guess a plus is you get to learn what to buy from a Polish deli.... ?

This book is truly funny. Our heroine, dumped, goes on a trip to So Africa with her very hilarious friends and meets a drop dead gorgeous ranger who she spends a night with...okay it's a fish out of water story when the ranger gets to NY and drives everyone batty when he's out of his element. And some of the plot's a little too neatly tied up. But the way the story's told and the author's humor makes it a terific read. It's not big on romance if that's what you're looking for but I laughed out loud while I read it and felt the characters were very memorable. This author is now on my fav list!

Seriously, this book is extremely funny! I completely appreciated the very refreshing twists that the story took! I loved how there were no stereotypical characters in the story and the way the story kept moving. Nothing like I had expected! Thank you Ms. Szewczyk for avoiding cliche and sap! The sense of humor on her is truly amazing! Max rocked! The friendship between the three of them is wonderful! LOVED IT!!!!

Format: Paperback
Kas, a twenty-three-year-old editorial assistant at a small publishing company, is one her way to South Africa with her best friends, Max (a rich enough gay 24-year-old) and his cousin Libby, her across-the-hall neighbour (23 and would rather sleep all day than work) on a much needed break from home. She recently found out her boyfriend, now her ex, was cheating on her with his fiancee. While in South Africa, on her last night there, she has a one-night stand with William, the hunky Ranger. When she returns, she opens e-mails from William, wondering where the knowledgeable Ranger can be, for surely the bad spelling can't be his. But they are. She left him with an open invite to New York, and after he's fired for `fraternizing with guests', meaning her, he takes her up on her invitation and goes to New York.

Now Kas is in a fix; she doesn't want William staying with her. It was only supposed to be a one-night stand. Things go quickly from bad to worse. As William is behind in the times, he dresses like MC Hammer in colourful balloon pants and sweat-sets, he's just about as dunce and clueless as his e-mails portrayed, and he's determined to write a book about the political mess Monaco is in. With her in the publishing company, he believes she'll be able to get him a book deal. Meanwhile, Max is getting petty revenge on her ex, Richard, by placing take-out orders delivered to Richard, checking out gay pornographic material from the library with Richard's card, handing out flyers that are in no way flattering, poses as a policeman, going from door-to-door in Richard's apartment building, advising the neighbours that Richard is a convicted flasher.
