her first novel This isn t a book I would read again.I read it so quickly as it was a fairly short book and not a challenging read If you have a couple of hours to fill and want a bit of a laugh then you should read this book This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I snapped this book up after reading the first few pages in the book store Davis had me at the top of page two, and I literally had the whole thing read in one sitting okay, after I got home The book has a definite stream of consciousness feel, but I think that s definitely its charm Ruby is

set of circumstances into Ruby s life, and her voice is so wonderfully quirky and unique that I couldn t get enough Too many one liners to list, and all of them had me laughing out loud the Sister Goddess one where she deadpans, My vagina can t talk right now because it s still trying to figure out what to wear had me HOWLING I was laughing so hard , and yet there were also parts of the book that had me saying, Oh Justoh hello, where Michael calls her answering machine and tries to guess the color of her toenail polish God, I was in love with him right then and there Don t even get me started about how I cried at the column Ruby writes at the end of the book and how Michael just nonchalantly says, Nice column Sigh Ruby Capote comes of age late, but man does she do it with a bang Great, great, entertaining, endearing story I loved it The writing is clever, the story premise interesting, but Davis captured her neurotic lead character a bit too well By writing from Ruby s POV, she avoided all the important moments and issues just as her character did An interesting technique, and maybe that was the point But by using a series of vignettes style instead of cohesive chapters, the story s unfolding left too many gaps for me, the reader, to fill in, and the brevity of each scene kept me on the surface for far too long I li The writing is clever, the story premise

like diarrhea of the author s thoughts She comes up with some very pithy comments, but she doesn t hold a plot at all She probably would have been good at writing something like All I Needed To Know I Learned in Kindergarten. This is a light, quick read that was really entertaining and actually funny The writing style is somewhat conversational there aren t a lot of intense, detailed descriptions it waslike listening to a talkative girlfriend who tells really good stories I m not a laugh out loud reader, but this book did make me smile while reading in public This is a great vacation book as long as you bring along something else, because it isn t long. You will laugh You will cry You will mostly laugh OUT LOUD If you d like to read something that s a little bit different, that pokes fun at the girls, you ll love this book It s a slightly irreverent look at women and their relationships A light, fun read.
