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.
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.
That's kind of to be expected seeing as book 1 (as I shall call it) covers everything from childhood to somewhere in the twenties, it's kind of inevitable that book 2 will have rather different material to work with. I would be tempted to say it feels like it lacks direction on occasion, but that doesn't do justice to the excellent job it does of painting a picture of a life, a relationship and a partner that is so well drawn through the pages of this book I feel like I know him without ever having met him.
One thing that book 2 does is focus less on sex, but what it loses in sexy fin times it makes up for in a gut-wrenching depiction of life in a modern anxiety-fuelled career. It is powerful stuff and contains moments that took me back to a very unhappy phase in my life and left me I had to take a moment before carrying on. But sweaty palms and trembling fingers aside, its heart-wrenching stuff and, even in the dark places, GOTN's characteristic humour shines through.
Overall it was funny, heart-warming, gut wrenching, borderline traumatising but in the best possible way. It's not the lightest of reads, but it doesn't get lost in the darkness either.
