main character is obnoxious
It is very rare to read (listen to) a book and not root for the main character to have a happy ending... this is one of those books. The main character is self centered, obnoxious, whiney, and seriously crazy. I found her entirely unlikeable. The best friend is the true heroine. The main girl has magical healing powers and stops feeling pain way too quickly for the multiple injuries she receives throughout the story. I wanted to empathize with her, but honestly have no positive feelings. The narrator did a good job speaking, audio was great, but the voice can't save a poorly written main character.

While I enjoyed Phoebe Fox's dry wit, I had a difficult time connecting with the main character of Brook, a 30+ mental health care professional. She was never really described physically - I like to have a mental picture of each person in a story -even her best friend Sasha was given more of a background.
In spite of some humorous moments, the subject matter (recovering and dealing with difficult romantic break-ups) was rather depressing. It also didn't make sense that Brook was so devastated by a 4 or 5 month relationship with a man she didn't even love. It felt like there was a missing chapter or something.
I would try another book by this author although I did not find this one entertaining.
