I recommend this to all women who want to feel empowered and stand up for what they believe in.
I should preface this review by saying that the hit Fox show “New Girl” annoys the heck out of me. While the eccentric charm of Sophie Kinsella’s characters, and some of Gorman’s former characters are entertaining, Carol aka Perfect Girls a mess and is such in a way that some readers will find endearing but I find infuriating. Carol is a chronic people pleaser and because of that allows everyone to use and abuse her for their convenience and for her illusion of having coming off as something she really wants to be but clearly is not— perfect. While readers of this review will say “Well, yeah…no one is perfect,” Carol is delusional and while wanting to head for her goal, could not be more destructive for her own sense of well-being and peace much in the same way as Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones character. Carol may be a character with whom some readers identify, but she’s also one that others (like this reader) would want to slap.
There were moments of humor on the heels of Carol’s thoroughly horrible family and her attempts at a social life to lighten the tone of Carol’s oppression. I found the frequent laughs again reminiscent of Fielding. Carol is not a copy of Bridget, but there’s a general sameness of flavor and Carol’s self-sacrifice in the face of a goal read with the same futility as Bridget’s diary.Read more ›
This book is a fun, easy read but is also thought provoking. The book helps the reader realize that by being perfect Carol is both holding herself, and those she loves, back. I would highly recommend Perfect Girl as well as any other books Michelle Gorman has written. She is a fabulous writer and her stories all feature honest characters who feel like friends!

Despite being ANOTHER novel with online dating bits, this actually did have a plot and some interesting characters which ameliorate the overdone internet dating parts.Published 7 days ago by MissMommy
Do other women really like to read an author in women's lit who is crude and crass? No thanks. Stories, even comedies can be witty and funny without the degradation.Published 1 month ago by Joni L Sorensen
