This isn't a novel - it's not fiction at all. It's a series of extended essays with an overarching narrative which takes in her past experiences, the history of the blog and the development of her relationship with 'Mark',including some pretty dark and unsettling stuff about mental health issues, bad choices, sorrow and loss. Reading it is a bit like a really good, memorable night out with your most outspoken, grog-loving mate: you'll be helpless with laughter one minute, welling up with sympathy the next, and almost certainly ending the night with a big hug and fervent good wishes for each other's future happiness.
What I wasn’t expecting, but will be eternally grateful for, is how “Sarah” opens up about the all encompassing ways anxiety affects her life.
Girl on the Net: How a bad girl fell in love is a funny, sexy and thoughtful memoir.
Obviously her version of domesticity is still 90% sexier and funnier than anyone else's, but still. Ignore the cheesy cover, this is a throughly reccommend read for anyone who likes their romcoms with a lot of spice and a side order of kink.
I think it's important to say that you don't need to have read Girl on the Net's work before to enjoy this book - it stands brilliantly on its own. One of my favourite things about her writing is that her experiences with sex and relationships are so far removed from mine, that it's truly fascinating to read things from a completely different point of view (which is also hot as hell). But that doesn't mean the book isn't relatable - in fact, the journey she takes us on from casual-shagging to full-blown love with a man she can't get out of her head is entirely relatable, even if we haven't been through the same exact scenarios ourselves.
Girl on the Net's writing is smart, very funny, super-sexy (this book manages to share more sex adventures than I thought would be possible given the subject matter!) and a joy to read. I couldn't put it down.
Readers of GOTN will know about her militant crusade to get the idea that 'women like sex too!' through people's heads. How this still an issue I don't understand, but if you were ever in any doubt GOTN will change your mind. Fear not-this is no boring feminist lecture, she does it with a candid, humorous wit that will leave you endeared to her even if you somehow disagree with her. I never thought I'd laugh so hard at mango chutney!
My only criticism is that the book ended a little early finishing tantalisingly close to a big life change. Having said that I don't think it's meant to be about living happily ever after. This book's really about how a woman who freely admits to loving the novelty of having sex with new men came to accept that she finally found one she wants to spend the rest of her life with and how she gave up the cheaper thrills for longer term happiness even though it was difficult for her.
GOTN, if you're reading this, you could make a book just from the little exchanges between yourself and your partner at the start of the chapters. I kept skipping ahead just to read them. Call it, 'shit GOTN said'?
