What a mess...
on 19 February 2017
Hilarious? Where, point just one joke out to me, go on, I dare you to find one.
Harriet Manners, the character, has completely lost what small measure of likability she once had. Now she's some insane, egocentric, immature, shallow puddle of a girl.
Nick, remains her cardboard ideal of a boyfriend - funnier still, even she realises in this instalment that he's barely in her life or that their relationship is anything other than her fawning after a mythical ideal of love, that doesn't exist.
There's not a likeable character here in any way, shape or form, okay, maybe the teacup pig was okay.
Her parents made me wince. Harriet's childish reactions to her life not going as she imagined made her seem like a twelve year old rather than sixteen.
There's nothing here to like, let alone love. I had to stop reading at the 75% mark, I was tired of flinching every time Harriet opened her mouth or had an inane thought. Don't care.
