Her is a light and fluffy piece of Chick Lit and an incredibly fast read I think I finished it in two relatively short sittings something very rare for me these days I can t say I recommend it though I found the protagonist completely unlikeable She becomes unhinged over her fiance s ex fiance moving nearby The entire book is one crazy incident after another of the narrator s downward spiral of low self esteem jealousy and obsession This may have been harder for me to read because I m still very good friends with an ex and I always worry that his new girlfriends will hate me from the get go just like the woman in this book Ugh I read Dating Big Bird by Laura Zigman and really liked it so I was looking forward to Her but the main character Elise is insufferable When I figured out that she s 34 I believe I wanted to throw the book against the wall Her insane behavior would have been acceptable in a 23 year old but goddamn woman You are a grown Not impressed a disappointing follow up to her previous book Heroine was over the top insecure and obsessive I wasn t rooting for her Unfamiliar references are a turn off and take me out of the story Didn t take advantage of the DC setting This book reminded me alot of myself Though the main character Elise went overboard with her stalking of her fiances ex girlfriend Because she couldn t trust she almost lost everything I could really understand Elise and it made me think I pick books to read by creative and sometimes random leaps of logic Her by Laura Zigman had catchy cover art and a title that reminded me by association with She by H Rider Haggard which in turn made me think of the Rumpole series Somewhere in the middle of all that thinking I decided what the heck I d check out the bookWhat sets Her apart from the other chick lit books I ve read is that Elise the protagonist is the self described other woman She is now going head to head with her fianc s ex girlfriend She spies she schemes she plots and she seethes inside It is really easy to get carried away with her perception of the situation and begin hating the boyfriend and his ex until Elise will do something so completely out of the blue to nock one out of the storyThe main drawback for me was Elise s personality She spends so much of the book being defensive and paranoid that it s hard to like her or get to When I Moan (Vassi and Seri 1: Russian Stepbrother Romance) know her If she went a little further like torture main or perhapsill one or both of them then she d have the same uneasy charisma as Patricia Highsmith s Tom Ripley As the book is pegged as a chick lit it s on a course for a happy ending which precludes Elise from embracing her inner Ripley I would have given the book a five out of five if she had Her by Laura Zigm.
