"Books Fall Open, You Fall In"
I rated this book 3 out of 5 stars.
This book follows the life and times of Cassi, a 30 year old single woman who deals with a painful breakup and re-enters the dating world.
Chick-lit is not my favorite genre but I have had some mild success with it lately so I decided to give this book a whirl. First off, I couldn’t really relate to Cassi in almost any way. As a matter of fact, I initially found her to be completely unlikable. Her constant pining and crying over a man who was so obviously a loser was annoying, but of course that’s easy for me to say since it wasn’t my relationship. Even with that though, I really had a hard time putting this book down. I couldn’t stop reading because I needed to know what would transpire next, what stupid thing would she do now, how did she plan on getting out of that situation. It was like watching a train wreck. You know you should look away, but you can’t. Gradually though I did begin to not dislike Cassi so much, maybe even began to like her a little, and ended up enjoying the story more than I thought I would.
It’s written in almost a blog/diary like format and there were times when things repeated themselves, but it was well written and straight forward. It was serious but also funny with some really unbelievable moments. I found it engrossing and there were plenty of times where I either shook my head at how naïve she was or laughed out loud at her antics. The men she chooses to associate with really leave a lot to be desired, but without them her journey wouldn’t be as entertaining to read as it was.
