When 25-year-old Eris gets fired from her minimum-wage job, she stumbles on her friend's startup which outsources bad news to people. But will she manage to keep her friendships intact when she finds out she's very good at delivering breakups, when demand is really picking up, and when the recipients don't take to the news too kindly?
Inspired by the Greek Goddess of discord Eris and by today's app services obsession.

Interesting

take a girl Eris who can't hold a job a friend with a startup and you find the best pairing.
Eris is a bit on the morbid side but she finds her life job in giving bad news and enjoys it.
I wish the story was a bit longer for sure but as a teaser it's great.
the narrator was fabulous, she made you want to continue to listen to rest of the story.
I was gifted this audio book and have given this review to the best of my ability.
my final word is listen to or read this book if you are into dark comedy.

Eris, please cut the Adderall.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I thought the most interesting thing about this story is the fact that the heroine, Eris, seem to not understand that she has a lot of high-energy. But also does not understand the need for boundaries. There are a lot of people that are like that and some people will call them emotionally stunted.

The least interesting thing about this story is the fact people keep encouraging Eris to be the way she is. Take for instance her brother. He keeps encouraging her to be so blunt and open and unfeeling when it comes to other people's emotions. So when somebody gets upset with Eris it seems it goes back to her childhood. The fact that everybody wanted her to do a grown-up job at such a young age.


Any additional comments?

I receive this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

I did enjoy Kathy Vogel's narration. She brought Eris alive and sometimes that is very difficult to do especially when the story is only 2 hours or less long. There is a lot to cram in within that time frame and I think she pulled it off.

This story in the series is something that I do want to continue. I want to know what happens next. What happens to Eris? Will she ever get to the point where she just says stop? I don't want to hurt anybody else's feelings. Will she get to the point where she only wans to live her life and not worry about always being the person to do a job that nobody else wants to do?
