First I have to say that I loved this book. In fact I enjoyed it more than many of the other books I have read lately.
The book has many similarities to Bridget Jones, but deals with some grittier issues (and the main character has far more gay friends than Bridget Jones did!). Over the course of the story our female lead character, CC deals with being single, death of friends and family and the pressures of work. The story will make you laugh and make you feel sad. So well told and described is the story that you feel that you are there in person, feeling her pain and misery as she struggles to find ‘the missing boyfriend’
Having read the first in the 50 reasons series by Nick Alexander I was expecting something far less substantial and frothy. This book is very different (apart from the presence of gay characters) and a much better read. I look forward to reading the sequel (already purchased!)
