Why does fate keep throwing her in the path of the irritatingly amusing -- and gorgeous -- Jake? And while this is true in the sense that the main focus is not purely about the protagonist finding a man, there are plenty of romantic goings-on within the pages, for those of you who like to read about lurve.
For the post-Carrie Bradshaw, post-Bridget Jones, post-credit crunch generation of singles, life isn't beautiful, a bitch, or a beach. I bought this book after happening upon Gemma Burgess’ Name That Bastard website (a call out for help with naming the bastard of her next book) and it made me snort loudly with mirth. The Dating Detox marks itself as an ‘anti romantic comedy’. The dialogue was sparkly and sharp, the situational comedy well observed, and the various bastardos (in particular, Rick) total comedy brilliance.
Its witty, conversational tone made me feel as if I knew the character of Sass and experienced the journey of the dating detox alongside her.
What stood out for me while reading this book was the voice. The supporting cast were fun, unique and a joy to read.
She also makes you forget all about your dating woes and see a hopeful future. The predictable-happy finale was good and earned it its third star. Really, half of the book was practically the narration of useless day-to-day activities; the author spent too many words describing the surroundings, the group dynamics, the preparation and development of the parties or weekends. This book was funny, a page turner, and filled my girl power bucket up.
