It is simply NOT true that men don't read girlie books. I'm a man and I love girlie books. But, The Last Place She'd Look is definitely NOT a girlie book. It is a coming-of-age novel. The age that is coming just happens to be 50, but there is no reason why only teenagers get to come of age.
Half the time I felt I was on the wrong side of Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus, pondering the age old question that Freud framed so well: "What does a woman want?". The other half of the time I felt that Sara, down deep, is just another member of Homo Sapiens trying to adjust to the angst inherent in daily life. Whether or not you have a vagina, you have angst, and you typically are looking for love in all the wrong places. Her angst resonated deeply with me. I identified with her ambivalence about nearly every aspect of her life: her bicuriosity, her love/hate relationship with her friends, her belief that men are pigs, but she wanted one anyway, and her profound confusion over how best to age gracefully. She couldn't grasp that the more you want something, the less likely you are to get it.
Ultimately, her ambivalence is resolved, and she achieves clarity. I was happy for her.
This book is funny as hell. I was truly laughing out loud at times, which can be embarrassing when you are alone at Starbucks. The funniest line in the book is: "The main reason men get married is because they can only hold their farts in for so long." This is SO true. Men are pigs. Really. I can prove it. Here, pull my finger. See?
It should be mandatory for men to read this book. I hope I can get a few more to do so.
I am not anti lesbian, but not ready to give up hope at finding my one true love, who happens to have a penis..he's out there.. The thing I connected with is not looking at every date as a possible"he's gotta be the one!!!"
