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 relationship.I 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 just didn 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 pace.The 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 don t know what drove her to be so neurotic I wish I had understood because maybe then I would not hate her so passionately And finally, the climax of the story If you are going to have everything crash down on the main character, at least tell me how it was all resolved Don t just give me a summary of what went down in the weeks to follow As soon as everything was out and the open and discovered, the book was over I almost wiggled the book looking for the missing pages But, of course, there were none It was over Awful Just awful.This book was just too disappointing for anyone to want to read So just put this book on a list of books to skip. What turns an ordinarily self confident attractive woman into a suspicious, lying, sneaking stalker For twenty something freelance book editor Elise, it s hearing that her fiance s ex fiance is moving to town and wants to be neighbors in Her To be fair, Elise s fiance Donald mentions Adrienne, his ex , the first time they met He told her all about Adrienne He was venting on a plane ride where they happened to be seatmates Elise thought Donald was cute and overly tall at 6 6 , however didn t really think much about him until they both actually showed up a week later at a coffee shop date they had suggested during the plane ride Hitting it off immediately, things went quickly from there Both having recently moved from New York City to Washington, D.C., they had a lot in common Donald is a teacher at a private school, Elise works from home editing books her best friend sends her on a freelance basis Fortunately, when Adrienne announces she s moving to D.C., for work and wants Donald to show her around the city, Elise s work at home schedule allows her plenty of time to go through Donald s old pictures, his computer, his pockets, his phone, anything she can think of to get information on Adrienne and what she really wants from Donald Instead of planning for their wedding, Elise finds herself frequently sidetracked by stalking Adrienne is beautiful, busty, smart, rich and well connected Elise can t figure out why Donald and she aren t still together, until Donald admits that it s Adrienne that broke up with him Then, on several of Elise s stalking expeditions, she finds Donald s car in Adrienne s driveway during school hours, or sees them walking down the street together When she asks Donald how his day was, he fails to mention his time spent with Adrienne This kicks Elise s stalking into high gear Certainly most women would be insecure to have their boyfriend fiance s ex in the picture, especially if she s as seemingly perfect as Adrienne The hijinks that Elise gets into over this situation, however, are not always funny, mostly pathetic She can t seem to pull herself together no matter how reassuring Donald is, to the point where she almost loses him This is a decent chick lit story, that is relatable to a point, but after that it s just lunacy. 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 day A very fitting place for it I should have left it there.It 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 didn t blaze through it I kept putting it down out of boredom The characters were incredibly shallow and unbelievable and the plot was predictable I d like to say something good about this book but I really cant Sorry. Not impressed, a disappointing follow up to her previous book Heroine was over the top insecure and obsessive I wasn t rooting for her Unfamiliar references are a turn off and take me out of the story Didn t take advantage of the D.C setting. Ugh I read Dating Big Bird by Laura Zigman and really liked it so I was looking forward to Her, but the main character, Elise, is insufferable When I figured out that she s 34 I believe I wanted to throw the book against the wall Her insane behavior would have been acceptable in a 23 year old, but goddamn, woman You are a grown adult, yet you are the whiniest, most insecure, most obnoxious MC I can recall reading And seriously psychologically troubled.This entire book could have been avoided if Elise had a TALKED to her fiance I get that the miscommunications and misunderstandings of relationships and friendships are a common driver of plots, but this was just ridiculous or b found a new counselor when she moved to Washington from NYC Because lord, she needs one Preferably both, but either one would have sufficed Again, I have serious doubts about the state of her mental health, because she went into serious, serious stalker mode here.I was expecting something much lighthearted, or something complex but with a real basis for Elise s suspicions or an ending where she had made a real self discovery, but she essentially just regressed further and further as the book went on and wasn t in much of a great place at the end, either She was like the trainwreck acquaintance that you know and talk about with your friends, but aren t close enough to smack sense into, so you have no choice but to silently watch the downward spiral and hope someone close to her in this case, clearly not either of Elise s two entire friends in DC, who were pretty much of no use steps in.Also, Donald and his weird stress reaction Like, what in the F is that I think he might have mental health issues than Elise based on that alone. Her by Laura Zigman is a realistic fiction involving a dramatic romance with innocent Elise and her fiance Donald The two are happily in love, they decide 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 relationship.One 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 quite 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 did he order Read to find out the story behind this love triangle. This is a story of a woman, Elise, who is over obsessed with her fianc s ex girlfriend She hates her guts and keeps hallucinating about her looks and manners way before she s even met her And once the ex, Adrienne, decides to move to Washington where Elise lives with Donald, things start getting twisted The way I see it is that, Elise is nothing but paranoid by this ghost of ex girlfriend due to which she starts seeing what isn t even there She s so obsessed with her that she starts suspecting her fianc for nothing He loves her dearly and gives her not a single reason to doubt him They re getting married in a few months and Elise goes on to sabotaging her own wedding because of her irrational behaviour She starts checking Donald s messages, emails, calls, pockets and whatnot She even stalked them both to the point of madness She checks the ex girlfriend s horoscope even, I mean c mon If it ain t broken don t fix it, if it doesn t itch don t scratch it the best advise she could get but she didn t listen to it and almost lost everything Her love life, her fianc , her credibility But there are references to a Dr Frond and her sessions with him Which gives us a hint that she might actually have an illness due to which she acts in such an obsessive compulsive manner But the way I see it is that she brought self generated self destruction upon her Plus I just didn t get Donald s urge to pull his pants down and get on all fours when he got nervous or anxious 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 Somewhere in the middle of all that thinking I decided what the heck, I d check out the book.What sets Her apart from the other chick lit books I ve read is that Elise, the protagonist, is the self described other woman She is now going head to head with her fianc s ex girlfriend She spies, she schemes, she plots and she seethes inside It is really easy to get carried away with her perception of the situation and begin hating the boyfriend and his ex until Elise will do something so completely out of the blue to knock one out of the story.The main drawback for me was Elise s personality She spends so much of the book being defensive and paranoid that it s hard to like her or get to know her If she went a little further like torture, main or perhaps kill one or both of them then she d have the same uneasy charisma as Patricia Highsmith s Tom Ripley As the book is pegged as a chick lit it s on a course for a happy ending which precludes Elise from embracing her inner Ripley I would have given the book a five out of five if she had.
