Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Okay, have you ever wanted to slam your head into a wall for making a bad decision? Throughout this entire book I fought with wanting to throw it across the room or finish reading... I chose to read it, the characters were over the top, I agree with comments that state the book is offensive to women. I am not sure what all the hype is about... The reading is fast paced and easy to follow.
I thought both characters needed more descriptions, the epilogue is where I read that Travis was bald... WHAT?? Ok, obviously Jamie McGuire wanted to make Travis over the top, but sleeping around with random girls (bagging them on his couch), getting in unrealistic fights and winning (beating up mob bouncers), having a terrible stalker attitude (refers to self as stalker), breaking things, terrorizing people, do not make a man crush for me...Yuck! I wanted to scream at Abby for being so into Travis.
Abby did not have many great qualities either, all we know is that she's attractive, has some sort of secret history, and she doesn't have much of a personality. I felt that Jamie McGuire was still trying to build Abby's personality throughout the entire book and I felt no depth or connection to her. She just annoyed me, she was naive and smart, a walking contradiction.
Just all around weird book... I didn't like it, but I couldn't put it down.
