"A good book; well-written and the story / characters drew me in from the get go.
A Life Lived Ridiculously was a great read and definitely worth four stars. Probably a "must read" for most single women too..." - RebeccasReads
"We have all dated liars who will say anything in order to get what they want. Charbit captures everything that makes the dating scene simultaneously so exciting and so frustrating, from the exhilaration of a first kiss to the despair when you realize that he is ignoring your messages." - Baltimore Jewish Times
"I very much enjoyed A Life Lived Ridiculously." - The book Bag
"From the very beginning of this novel readers will smile; they will then reach 'all out laughter' by the second page. The amazing thing about this story, however, is that laughter turns frightening when the author offers up a twist that readers will not see coming." - Feathered Quill
Dr. Charbit does indeed use her vast experience with the subjects of the book to pull the reader in with remarkably developed characters. Especially for a first novel, A Life Lived Ridiculously succeeds in its stated purpose: it makes us aware of and think closely about our stereotypes and generalizations in the mental health world - PsychCentral

Though I don't generally read chick-lit, and initially was tempted to put the book down, it was actually quite gripping. I recommend it to people who enjoy psychological thrillers. This one's written from the viewpoint of a potential victim.
What I didn't like about the book was that it started out as one thing - a comedic romance - and ends up as something quite different. It's like a Disney movie going Hitchcock. Had the framing been slightly different, with more foreshadowing of the end, I think it would have worked better. Neither the title nor the cover art actually do justice to the book. It gives the impression the book is going to be flippant and light-hearted.
Funny but insightful.
