Anyone who loves all those classic movies where the leading lady drives off into the sunset with Tall Dark and Handsome, leaving behind some poor Joe Nobody not quite as tall and not quite as handsome but totally dependable (and devoted) will feel immediately guilt ridden that they never considered the Other Guys' feelings.
What Cary Attwell has written is a brilliant book which makes you love Emory, from the moment he's standing in the church, jilted, in front of everyone of importance in his life, comparing himself to the 'Other Guy' you can't help but feel for the guy. Joining Emory in search of escape from what will come next, the pity and well meant platitudes of those around him, we travel through the life of a man who is in many ways totally clueless but you can't help but love him anyway even while you're cringing hoping he'll get a clue before it's too late.
Well written, and enjoyable, I couldn't put this book down!
So glad that I came across this book.
Emory's narrative was brilliant, all neurotic and self deprecating. The Avoid-and-hope-it-goes-away tactic is my go-to in all difficult situations, so I could totally relate to his actions. I really felt for him as his blind-eye-turning choices buried him ever deeper in poop.
He and Nate together were adorable, and their banter was great. Linn, too, was fantastic -everyone needs a straight talking, no s*** taking friend such as her.
I do feel, however, more could have been made of certain aspects to up the impact/tension/drama a wee notch. And, though I liked the fact this book abstained from explicit sex scenes, I think a further few steps from tame may have enhanced it some (most notably that first time; glossing over such a monumental marker of change in Emory's life was not a particularly effective approach).
