    One thought on “How to Be Single”

    1. This was a directionless novel about a group of unapologetically self obsessed 38 year old single women I was expecting something different maybe inspiring, about forging your own path and not relying on relationships to bring you joy It could have been that Or it could have been funny It could have been romantic It could have been smart It could have been fun It could have been educational Unfortunately it was an annoying bore, full of clich s and stereotypes and I failed to see any purpose beh [...]

    2. Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum I read this several years back during one of the infamous Winter Reading Challenges in order to score a free coffee mug, but ended up kind of ripping all of the library s suggestions to shreds including another by this author so I never posted a review you don t insult the people who help supply your addiction, after all This past week my social media has become the Land of All Things Beauty and the Beast and I once again started questioning just how abnor [...]

    3. I can t quite figure out whether I want to give the book two stars or three On one hand, each character filled with pathos and false bravado, reminded me of well me And all my female friends On the other hand, it felt ridiculous and contrived which naturally upsets me And at the end of reading the book, I m torn about whether or not I liked the book This was an essay disguised as a novel,and reads like a non fiction, which works for the book I didn t hate the book it flows well enough And I thin [...]

    4. Only the first 20 pages of this book were smart The rest was offensive The international stereotypes were so obvious it was insulting Really, Liz The Chinese girl who laughs and laughs The Indians who bobble their heads The strong nordic women I was shocked to discover she did ACTUAL research for this novel, stemming from ACTUAL travel to the countries mentioned If someone had asked me, I would have said that the only research she did for this book was to go to Disneyworld, take a ride on It s A [...]

    5. This book was so depressing It made me feel like I need to get married and at the same time, It will never happen because all men are bastards It should have been called, Accept You re Single Now Because Noone Will Ever Want You.

    6. Fair warning unless you are a single woman in her mid to late 30 s, you may find this book trite and possibly annoying However, should you fall within the target demographic, read on I didice Tuccillo co wrote He s Just not that Into You, which should give you some indication of the combo insight and humor awaiting you here What I loved here, and made me laugh over and over, is how nutty we get at a certain age when we haven t married Yes, I know that married folk have their own identity crises [...]

    7. This book is Sex and the City meets Eat, Pray, Love is the best way to describe this book You have 5 women focused around the central character, Julie Julie works for a publisher and is off to write a book about being single across the world after a humiliating night out Her friends that barely know each other in the beginning become her Sex and the City girls.Alice is a Legal Aid Attorney who quits her job for a new career in dating She meets a wonderful guy and is tired of dating will she sett [...]

    8. Nope this book is not for me I am single I found this book is offensive on judging singletons Nope sorry.

    9. Maybe because I have never really been single, I just found this trite From the perspective of being married, I want to tell these thirty something women to grow up and get over the princess in waiting attitude I feel like most of the women have completely unrealitic expectations of what love and commitment are Really if the reason Julie can t get a guy is because she is only a size 6 and has celluite then how does that explain the hordes of happily coupled married size 12 and up women Julie in [...]

    10. Oh god, how many books can I read about 30 something single women who live in New York before I want to shoot myself There s a quote on the back from Plum Sykes Vogue airhead and faux writer that reads, A fun read that reminds single girls everywhere that it s fabulous to be single I don t think that Plum Sykes actually read this book How to Be Single reminds us that being single is miserable you ll get dumped, ditched, or treated like dirty the love of your life will be screwing a dozen other [...]

    11. I know this book was intended as chic lit fiction but the ethnocentrism in the book was derailing for me The main character Julie epitomizes the ugly American abroad.In Australia she writes Like an aborigine with a bottle of Wild Turkey, Georgia spiraled out of control and Her name was Fiona Crenshaw from Tasmania a small island off the coast of southern Australia Then in China she writes In Beijing, as I soon found out, they enjoy squatter toilets Even in some upscale establishments, they have [...]

    12. I just took this book out from the library and got three chapters in and realized I d already read this book.

    13. This was an awesome, fun, inspiring read It s about a 38 year old woman Julie She s single She has 4 single friends, and she decides to travel the world to write a book about single women in different countries Among the places she visits are Rome, Ireland, India In each country she meets all kinds of women, and in each country, women have a different take on being single The author actually did do the research her information in the fiction book was real And I found it fascinating I loved Julie [...]

    14. I ve been waiting for this book to appear so I could review it Okay, I read the whole thing, but if you know me, you know that once I start, I rarely stop, so the fact that I finished a book does not suggest that you should, and, in fact, I advise that you avoid this book altogether First of all, did no one edit this book She gets away with sentence fragments No, I m not talking about artfully used, I m breaking the rules because I ve mastered them sentence fragments, I mean just flat out fragme [...]

    15. I ve read through the various reviews for this book just now and really, unless you re in your late 30 s 40 s, single and trying to date in NYC or anywhere really , you probably don t like this book, or find it unrealistic or trite Me, being the person described above, LOVED it I found a bit of myself in each character I didn t find them deplorable or desperate I found them to be real I think most women have found themselves in the psycho, desperate, woe is me, why can t I find love and why didn [...]

    16. Um livro bem disposto, muito ao estilo do sexo e a cidade Acompanhamos as perip cias e dramas da vida de 5 mulheres solteiras e a viagem de uma por muitos pa ses do mundo onde ficamos a conhecer os costumes das mulheres solteiras.

    17. I have to say this book was very insightful I even took memos But I hate her and Thomas relationship and how Georgia treated her kids

    18. 2 StarsI read this months ago but have been procrastinating about writing my review The short version is that How to Be Single was disappointing, uninspiring, and frankly quite depressing The characters were obnoxious There was not much of a plot And it read like a twisted self help book secretly designed to drive single women to the edge of despair and despondency The flimsy plot is that the main character, Julie, decides to write a book about how women in different cultures handle being single [...]

    19. This book had great potential, and many great moments, but doesn t deliver in the end After a night out with her four single girlfriends, Julie decides to travel the globe interviewing single women for a book about dating in different cultures It s a great premise, except that Julie gets air sick every time she flies and is too shy to talk to strangers on her own Fortunately, one of her friends is able to fly across the world to each country she visits to hold her hand And in every country she v [...]

    20. This book is Sex in the City meets Eat Pray Love with entirely too many convenient moments Overly convenient moments can be annoying But as someone who writes, I totally get that convenience can help speed things along That said, I do think it covered the many thoughts that go through a single girl s mind positive and negative And it is interesting to think about it from different cultural perspectives.

    21. This books is easy to read apart from some boring parts That I liked a lot is the travel guide character of the book as I am a huge travel lover Interesting stories of each character and as single woman for the time being, I got the message As for the homonymus movie, it is absolutely different from the book Personally, I prefer the book

    22. I ll give this a solid 3 stars Go into it knowing that it s written by the woman who helped write He s just not that into you If you know that book and movie, you will better understand how this book plays out around its core cast of 5 single women.It s light and fluffy and will make you chuckle It s not deep, or super insightful, but it s an escape and that s what I enjoyed about it.

    23. I did not like this book I found everything somewhat unrealistic, some people probably do act and think like the characters did All they cared about and talked about was sex and there wasn t really a point to the story I found the characters completely full of themselves and sexist The characters would rather die than be a single mother and the key to staying single is that you gotta have regular sex with random strangers I definitely prefer the movie adaptation 100% I wouldn t recommend this bo [...]

    24. I enjoyed this book I liked what it had to say about female friendships and how the experience of being single is pretty much universal around the world Nothing ground breaking, but it was fun and enjoyable.

    25. As a smug coupled person, I can read this and find it slightly humorous But if I were single this would make me manic with depression Overall, a directionsless book that wandered and never landed Incredibly self centered and moody No grand point or revelation, and left a reader moi with no idea how a book so vague could be published Truly not worth the read One hundred percent of all humans need hope to get by And if any statistic takes that away from you, it s not worth knowing Never let anyone [...]

    26. So, where do I startWell, first off, the title of the book is so contradictory to what it is actually about The title should be How NOT to be single I am disappointed in this book because personally becoming recently single after being in a serious long term relationship I was hoping to read a book that gives you advice and insight into how to be okay being single Not that I need it, but that s what I assumed the book would be about, given the title.The overall feeling I got from the book, was t [...]

    27. I ve just realized upon shutting the book, I ve read a cheaper version of Eat, Pray, Love with of a comedic twist That makes me a bit sad to be honest.But you ve obviously enjoyed its I enjoyed it It was enjoyable It was funny The characters were developed and you become slightly attached I think you start feeling like the silent judgy friend who is thanking all the babies in heaven your life isn t like theirs I can definitely see why this was adapted into film, it s great movie material Someon [...]
