Read full description of the books:
I have such conflicting emotions about this book. It was very well written and I definitely wanted to finish it just to see how the story ended, but I have real issues with the characters. None of them were likeable. We start out with Janey who is an accuary and her boyfriend Tobias. Janey seems like one of those socially akward people. Tobias ends up betraying her and humiliating her in front of all of his friends. Having suicial thoughts Janey joins a therapy group. Here we meet 6 other women who are just as damaged as Janey is. Women who use different methods to keep others at a distance but are in their late thirties and early forties who feel like they will never meet a man. The whole therapy group is really there just so they can figure out how to meet men. Eventually the group becomes friends and avengers seeking revenge on those who hurt them in the past. Then everything goes wrong and Janey is betrayed by her friends. I know in such a situation I would not be as forgiving as Janey was. In fact I still harbor resentments towards people I knew in high school. But somehow Janey figures out how to take charge in her life and works towards being a better person.
Like I said, I had a real hard time with these characters, they were just so absurdly disfunctional. I know we all how doubts and self esteem issues but these women were so far in the extreme that I had a hard time relating to them. I really hated that every man Janey met she was instantly infatuated with and envisioned marriage, children and a retirement home in Boca Raton. Every woman was more beautiful and younger than her and was sleeping with Tobias. And the group's mentality that "not-telling is the same thing as lying" regarding disclosure was just obsurd. This is definitely not a book I would reread or keep in my library. And the only moment that was remotely laugh out loud was when the girls were sneaking Janey into the nursing home.
