Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler

1 star

Why? Why? Why did I read this book?!

I have no idea why this was written, or why it was  even published.  The drawings were nice and all, but the content itself… It was page after page of boring narration and storytelling. At first, I thought it’ll be something like Perks, but it wasn’t. I don’t even know what to say. I can get this story anywhere, or from any of my girlfriends and it’ll probably be more interesting.

Basically, this is about a girl Min sharing her reasons why she broke up with her boyfriend. It’s the typical “average high school girl gets asked out by the hot popular jock as school who everyone knows is a jerk, but still says yes anyway”, well, because she’s a girl. And like most REAL stories, the guy turns out to be an ass like everyone said. So Min is heartbroken and develops an inferiority complex. Because that’s what happens to girls when they get cheated on and f*cked over. Min has obviously never heard of the Taylor Swift song “Fifteen”, because that song practically sums up her story, this whole book basically.

So, at the end of the book, what we get is.. well, nothing really. Except a typical heartbreak story with lots of cute drawings.

There goes two hours of my life that I can never get back.

Spare yourself  and stay away from this book.
