Air Worst of all she and Donald have remained “good friends” since they broke up Convinced that Adrienne is out to win Donald back Elise begins stalking both of them obsessively and starts adding up clues to what looks like a brazen affa.

My one word review LameI chose this book off the library shelf at random Or semi random on a whim I picked the first and last books off the shelf in the fiction section of the local library This was the last book on the shelf that ay A very fitting place for it I should have left it thereIt took me over 100 pages to become the slightest bit interested in the book which is pretty sad considering the book is a little over 200 pages long It held my attention for a whole 20 pages Although it was an incredibly easy read I idn t blaze through it I kept putting it The Essential Good Food Guide down out of boredom The characters were incredibly shallow and unbelievable and the plot was predictable I like to say something good about this book but I really cant Sorry Her by Laura Zigman is a realistic fiction involving a Textbook of Wisdom dramatic romance with innocent Elise and her fiance Donald The two are happily in love theyecide to get engaged and while planning their wedding ex fiancee of Donald Adrienne leaves New York to move in the same city as them Just as plans are going smoothly old friend Adrienne who is absolutely stunning and well known in New York now has no friends here she ends up spending her weeks hanging out with the two of them and their friends Elise the open and welcoming person she is spends time with her but as weeks go by and Donald isn t in the house as much and nor is Adrienne what will Elise and her friends start to think I found this book to be a good exposure to things that can happen while in a relationshipOne thing that bothered me while reading was knowing that Elise s friends wouldn t help her find out what was going on which aggrivated Elise and I because there would be fights A fight broke out even in front of Adrienne because Elise confronted her friend which even made me concerned because they weren t talking for uite some time which made the book seem even longer From my own experience with friends and relationships I know misinterpretations play a huge role just as well as looking at other s point of view I personally can understand how frustrating it must ve been for Elise to not know what was going on between the two of them Even when it comes to friends relationships my frustration can boil knowing that something isn t right I would recommend this book to teens or anyone in a relationship that s into a suspenseful romance and for people looking to find out what happens in some relationships Donald and Elise s fights became so bad I ended worrying if he was going to go back to Adrienne as well Was Donald really just looking at the menu or In Defence of Dogs did he order Read to find out the story behind this love triangle I pick books to read by creative and sometimes random leaps of logic Her by Laura Zigman had catchy cover art and a title that reminded me by association with She by H Rider Haggard which in turn made me think of the Rumpole series This book was just awful The so called evil ex girlfriend was no where near awful enough I barely was able to register when she was trying to sabotage the main characters relationshipI would glaze past it and not realize I was supposed to be appalled by her actions If you re going to make a character a bitch you cant just have her be attractive and a bit of a liar I justidn t hate her the way I was supposed to I had to force myself to finish this book It crawled by at an annoyingly slow paceThe main character was so paranoid and crazy it was just frustrating to read I wanted to climb in the book and hit her over the head with a magazine I on t know what rove her to be so. Elise meets Donald on a flight to Washington DC where he teaches and she edits self help books He is The City in Mind dreamy 6’6” with unflinching green eyes and a proclivity for speaking frankly Incredibly they fall in love get engaged and startiscuss.
