Goodnight Nobody

I wanted to like Jennifer Weiner's Goodnight Nobody. Really, I did. But I didn't.

On one hand it was good to see her return to telling a story from a single character's point of view.

On the other hand, it was a horrible plot. It was unrealistic, improbable, and well, boring. The main character was whiney and as usual obsessed with an ex. Are all women supposed to be obsessed with their exes??? I know that I sure as hell don't want any of mine back. Although I suppose that guy never really was her boyfriend so could be really be counted as an ex? Which makes it all the more pathetic really.

Yeah, I didn't like the main character. The best friend was ok but we've seen a hundred other like her. Ditto the mother figure. Ditto again the husband. Where the hell did the dad go???

Ummm yeah, I'm not recommending this one.
