Publisher's Summary

Andy Carter was happy. He had a solid job. He ran 5Ks for charity. He was living a nice, safe Midwestern existence. And then his wife left him for a handsome paramedic down the street.
We're All Damaged begins after Andy has lost his job, ruined his best friend's wedding, and moved to New York City, where he lives in a tiny apartment with an angry cat named Jeter that isn't technically his. But before long he needs to go back to Omaha to say good-bye to his dying grandfather.
Back home, Andy is confronted with his past, which includes his ex, his ex's new boyfriend, his right-wing talk-radio-host mother, his parents' crumbling marriage, and his still-angry best friend.
As if these old problems weren't enough, Andy encounters an entirely new complication: Daisy. She has fifteen tattoos, no job, and her own difficult past. But she claims she is the only person who can help Andy be happy again, if only she weren't hiding a huge secret that will mess things up even more. Andy Carter needs a second chance at life, and Daisy - and the person Daisy pushes Andy to become - may be his last chance to set things right.

Another Manic Pixie Dream Girl Story

It was just ok. The excessive use of profanity was off putting, since I like to listen around the house and I have young children. The story was OK, but the main character never did anything. Life just happened to him. He never becomes proactive about any problems that face him. Luckily, a manic pixie dream girl comes along to fix his life. But at the end he remains as passive and unimpressive as ever.

We're All Going to Avoid This One

It took me a long time to finally finish We're All Damaged. It happens every once in a while that a book just doesn't connect with me. I started We're All Damaged as my book to read before bed and sadly for that category you have to be pretty great to keep my attention.

Two weeks ago I decided to stop lingering and actually pushed through. We're All Damaged follows Andy Carter who coming off of a divorce where his wife cheated on him isn't in a good place. He's moved from Omaha to New York City to start over and that's not going well. When he hears about his Grandfather's failing health he goes back to Omaha and has to confront everything he ran away from.

If that didn't sound cliche enough (should have been my warning to not read this book), the rest of the novel doesn't get any better. First off the writing is really bad. The way in which Matthew Norman writes for the female characters is downright laughable. The characters all sound like they were written from a male perspective. About half way through the book Andy Carter meets Daisy and that whole relationship/story/dialogue is a train wreck. I actually audibly laughed/scoffed more times than I care to even count.

I'm not sure why I finished We're All Damaged. I probably should have given up on it long ago. There was nothing redeeming about this book. None of the characters really have a beginning, middle or end. They are just there. And in some cases that can work but this is a book that's written like a middle of the road romantic comedy, and ends up being a really bad one.

Totally forgettable.

I bought it because of the reviews, but I think I read a different book.

Pleasant but not much more

I like to either be taught by books or be thoroughly entertained and this book did neither.

It was a pleasant and slightly whimsical story which whilst credible and mildly engaging, left me none the richer for having listened to it.
