It was OK
Aggressive narration and unlikeable heroine
I wouldn't. While the story is interesting, the main character is not very likable (far too impressed with her own take-charge ways). But the real flaw hear is the narration. There isn't much shading in the narration. It is the same level of complaining aggressive the whole way through. This book would have been much better told in the third person with a lighter touch on the narration.
A less strident, negative tone. More levels... Everything is read as equally important... Even the mundane tasks of life.
