As for the other characters, including the love interest, I found them flat, stereotypical and unrealistic. The love interest was especially problematic because there was no basis for his attraction to the main character. He met her initially for about 30 seconds, she was a rude cow and yet he was completely smitten with her from that point on, even after meeting her again where her behaviour was even worse (and unprofessional AGAIN). It made him seem weak and dimwitted - such a turn off!
I could go on and on about some of the other problems with this novel, but I don't want to talk myself into giving it anything lower than a three-star review. At the end of the day it's not a terrible book, and as the main character IS supposed to be a bit neurotic, it's somewhat excusable that she's not particularly likeable.
Very glad I got this one for free.
i was in the middle of struggling through two very long, very dark fantasy books, and then i stumbled onto this book in my queue of "books" in my kindle. i took a break; i kind of looked at it like a sorbet between courses, a break in studying for the finals, a refreshing nap before the evening with the relatives....or, a bit of lightness before plunging back into the darkness. this book is easy to like and has amusement, obstacles to be overcome, and some pretty charming characters going for it.
this book reminds me of jill mansell, a british chit lit writer, whose books are similar, using the same formula, but superior.... if you have not read her yet, and this is a genre you love, i'd get on it if i were you. there are very minimal "booty call" descriptions in jm's book, and in "love unlisted", something that is nice to know, if you appreciate that. some books i've bought, even in the sci-fi/fantasy genres, my "normal" genre, have some extremely graphic scenes....these books, jm's and "love unlisted", not so. they are pleasantly pg, for the most part. sweet. one thing: jm's books are in brit speak, so the slang terms, places, products, t.v. and radio shows, and famous figures may be unrecognisable. just saying...
so, i'd give this little book 3 1/2 stars, or maybe 3 and 3/4 stars, although for some reason you can't rate like that on amazon. there are evidently more books by this author, and after reading this book, i will check out the other ones.
I love to make lists but the main character Gracie took it to a whole other level, although I am glad that towards the very end of the book they do explore and explain that aspect of the book. I did enjoy the character development of not just the main character but also of her roommate and her issues, some of which I could see coming but the predictability didn't necessarily detract from the story. I actually found myself kind of sad when it was coming to an end, something I didn't expect. This was another good summer read and can't beat it for the free price!
