    One thought on “Snapped”

    1. This book is about an aging hipster alcoholic in denial about her self loathing and is quite depressing I thought of not finishing it but I was procrastinating so I skipped through it pretty fast once I got tired of the unlikable narrator s voice.39 year old Sara B makes a living taking pictures of people on the street and categorising them into Dos and Don ts for a fashion pop culture magazine in Montreal We watch her lose her touch at work and in relationships In a drunken daze, she tries to a [...]

    2. Sara B is losing her cool Not just in the momentary meltdown kind of way though there s that, too At the helm of must read Snap magazine, veteran style guru Sara B has had the job and joy for the past fifteen years of eviscerating the city s fashion victims in her legendary Dos and Don ts photo spread But now on the un hip edge of forty, with ambitious hipster kids reinventing the style world, Sara s being spit out like an old Polaroid picture blurry, undeveloped and obsolete Fueled by alcohol, [...]

    3. This is a book about the 39 yr old editor and cofounder of montreal magazine snap which doesnt exist in real life She was known for taking people s photos for a do and dont section, like the one that s in, i think glamour, but without the black bar over the eyes she has a sort of midlife crisis and her life falls apart, oh and she s a big alcoholic who never gets help and shes stupid and whiny i never liked this character, or any of the characters they all acted really absurdly why would she bas [...]

    4. I do not know how or why some people feel that they get to say what is right or wrong to wear In this All About Eve tale, Sara B gets usurped as a fashion maven by her assistant No one who needs to learn anything does, no one who needs a come upance gets one Big let down.

    5. Sara B has made her minor fame and small fortune from snapping photos of Montreal hipsters and nerds for the last fifteen years for her publication Snap Ted, who is her business partner and one time only lover, is married to her best friend Gen who was a late 80 s singing sensation whose fame might be getting another fifteen minutes after her reality show debuts John is her boyfriend and nine years younger than her they also have an arrangement that they can have sex with others as long as the o [...]

    6. This book rubbed me the wrong way but i kept reading because I thought it was part of the storyliner the main character to be completely unlikeable and then make her way around to being someone I could eventually care what happened to Unfortunately the main character still wasn t likable or relatable even by the end of the book The main character has a vivid imagination, and envisions scenarios similar to what Ally McBeal would imagine But somehow the main character in Snapped goes beyond what I [...]

    7. Unfortunately I only made it to 60 pages in, and when a book is only 246 pages that says a lot about how much I didnt enjoy those pages I did read.It wasnt the writiing style, in fact I actually thought the author s writing style was quite good Unfortunately I did not like the main character, and I didnt like any of the other characters And for me, its essential that I like at least 1 character.Maybe its because I cant relate to the main character I am only 24 whereas she is nearly 40 But then a [...]

    8. Sara B is an aged too cool for everyone hipster who suddenly finds herself and her life taken over by the new it girl Too bad for Sara B A woman that Sara B met dies and leaves her a collection of vintage fashion magazines and books, so she opens a private library And is going to be able to make a living from this Yeah, that happens in real life ALL THE TIME.

    9. Truth be told only made it to page 100 This novel is awful Undeveloped, shallow character, mindless dialogue and zero substance Tried to get through it, but I think I would have preferred eating a plate of broken glass over enduring one page of this awful rag Thumbs down.

    10. This book was as vapid and vacuous as the world it attempts to satire at times Plus it s depressing It was not funny or smart Just the rambling story of an aging alcoholic loser Avoid.

    11. I hated this Sara B is the WORST character i have ever encountered Total fucking doormat I wanted to punch her in the face With a hammer.

    12. Vacuous, crass, trashy and pretentious and that s using polite words and being somewhat kind.This Canadian modernist version of angst ridden chick lit nonsense contains absolutely nothing to recommend itself to lovers of quality literature.Here we have a lead character, Sara B, a co founder of, and a photographer for a hip, trendy magazine that specializes in humiliating people who have committed the mortal sin of being seen in public in what has been arbitrarily judged as a fashion faux pas.Sar [...]

    13. Snapped is the story of Sara B, who has made her living from taking snaps of people and categorising them as DOs and DON Ts for fashionista mag Snap, which she co founded As she approaches forty, Sara starts to realise that she is losing her ability to tell the DOs from the DON Ts and what follows is an entire self destruct of her life and the discovery that life can be than fashion.This was an odd little book at times very funny, at times extremely dark, at times dull If I were one of the peop [...]

    14. Snapped was sort of a mixed bag for me At first I loved the author s humorous voice and the setting and the characters and in the end I did as well but in the middle it got a little bizarre Let me explain, Sara goes off on these tangents in her mind where she thinks of all these horrible things that can happen and some of them were a little bit revolting I think if that was toned down a bit it wouldn t have distracted me so much from what I liked about the book.I really admire the originality of [...]

    15. This should be the Bible for every 30 to 40 something woman who was cool back in the day and is struggling with embracing adulthood Let me introduce you to Sara B a neurotic woman turning 40 whose life as Queen of Cool slowly starts to unravel when her new friend newly hired assistant usurps her at Snap, a magazine she co founded with a longtime friend Sara B is a woman you will love to hate and learn to love You will be privy to her innermost thoughts and feelings, her failings and successes st [...]

    16. Ssome of the reviewers here complained about the narrator being unlikable, but I found her unlikability to be part of her charm sure, she does some asshole stuff, but then she immediately acknowledges it and feels bad about it And a great portion of her asshole thoughts are things I ve thought from time to time.The only thing I didn t like was how uncannily lucky the main character was, she gumps her way in and out of careers and relationships and the only bad thing that happens to her is that h [...]

    17. I loved this book Was it the most well written book I ve ever read No Was it the most original storyline Not particularly But for some reason, reading about this woman who goes through some slow sort of revelation about the horrendous way she has been treating people and then her mental path through life really interested me I genuinely wanted to know what happened with each of the characters sleazebag ones included I tried to imagine myself as her throughout the entire book and couldn t, becaus [...]

    18. Inside this All About Eve Story is a less likable Margo Channing set in the insta friend Canadian midwest Episodic at best and repetitive at worst, Snapped s geratest flaw is a narrative voice you don t want to spend time with Her big revelation this is not a spoiler is that she is an asshole, and well what to do about that A few too many plotlines, some funny secondary characters, a behind the scenes in magazines view about as deep as Just Shoot me And please do I didn t finish it I ll give it [...]

    19. On one hand one can identify with Sara B suddenly realizing that what you have been doing for years is no longer what you want to do and being somewhat out of it and on the other, she really needs to grow up as Ted had mentioned There is also this pressing desire to dunk her into a huge tub of hot soapy water and scrub her clean with a wash brush That s from head to toe, inside and outside Yuck

    20. I thought a book written about a 39 year old style guru who made a living off of posting snapshots of DO s and DON T s would be interesting While the premise of the book was what pulled me in I found myself quickly skimming pages because the main character was annoying and had yes I will say it a potty mouth Maybe I was just too old to be reading this book.

    21. Sometimes vulgar, sometimes funny, but mostly eh I was happy with the transformation of the character from beginning to end, but the transformation itself made me want to put this book down and not finish reading it than once I m glad I pushed through to see the character come out as a better and happier person.

    22. SOOO glad to be done with this book The fact that it took me over a month to read some 250 pages is pretty evident, I think I wouldn t say it was a terrible book, but it was very angsty and pathetic in a my life is so terrible and it s all my fault kind of way The book does end on a happy ish note, but it s kind of unrealistic Meh.

    23. Sara B has made a living as a snarky fashionista trendhunter, but her full time professions is getting drunk, loathing herself and boinking young men.When the tables turn on her, courtesy of Sara B 2.0, she falls hard, learns some things and finds a different way to be cool and of course, finds some redemption.

    24. 1.5 stars I just wanted to tell the main character to grow up Granted, that was a main theme in the book, but man, she was insufferable It was occasionally funny, and I actually really enjoyed her relationship with Esther, an elderly woman That was why I rounded up.

    25. A good, interesting novel about a lady who obviously is not happy in her life, and the effort she goes through to fix what ails her She s a bit of an antihero at first how much did I hate her but she grows on you, and the situations she finds herself in are amusing and sometimes cringeworthy.
