When I first started to read this book, I had a hard time turning the pages. I thought the story was kind boring and just not really that enticing. I just couldn't get into the book. I think a part of the reason I couldn't get into it was it reminded me too much of my own relationship. No one wants to be reminded of their relationship, if it's not exactly the best. A guy who was there but wasn't. A guy who said things that he didn't exactly mean. After a while, when I was basically down about my own relationship, I would read this book. It sort of helped me with my own relationship and on the other hand it made me think I didn't really know much about the guy I was really with. I love the way the characters talk in this book. Min's friends are like her. They are all into the same things, which is almost too perfect. The wording is sometimes confusing and I'm not exactly sure who is speaking when the author doesn't make it known directly. But other than that, I don't have any problems with this book. I don't have anything against a little grammar mistake here and there. I personally think if an author and an editor can make a mistake then it seems more human. If you were hoping I would bash this book, then you are really coming to the wrong blog.
I don't really relate to any of the characters. But the break up I can relate to. You are with someone, you think is amazing. And it turns out that they turn out to be a jerk. A person who manipulates you until he gets what he wants. A guy who doesn't care about you or truly wants to be with you. And since I am now suffering through a break up with a very unfriendly ending, I can relate to Min when she finds out her boyfriend is cheating on her with another girl. A girl he was already involved with. I have been lucky in my own past relationships because I have never been cheated on, which is like the worst kind of sin that a guy can commit if he's with someone. And I'm glad that this tragedy has never happened to me. It might of been the icing on the cake that really pushed me off the edge. I thought the book was great and it was a little hard to get into for me but I did finish it because I thought the ending was interesting. I like Al and his no opinion on everything. He just seems like a very interesting character. I think Min and Ed could of been a little more developed and a little less weird with some of their word and thought choices.
Secretly I thought I was waiting for the guy that just broke up with me to come back to me. I thought he was everything I wanted. But it turned out we had nothing in common. And even though he gave us a second chance. It was half-heated and it never felt like it did, our first time around. I should of just let him go but I didn't. I fought for him. And now I'm single. There are perks to being single but sometimes I just don't want to be alone. I want someone who can be more than a friend to me. I want to find the right one. The right guy for me. I just hope he is out there somewhere for me, looking for me.
