Greig, Charlotte - A Girl's Guide to Modern European Philosophy

Title: A Girl's Guide to Modern European Philosophy
Author: Charlotte Greig
Genre: Fiction

Love/Hate?: Love
Rating: 5/5
Did you finish?: Yes.
One-sentence summary: Men are rubbish. So were the '70s.

Why did you get this book?: Buzz on Bookslut.
Do you like the cover?: I hated the cover. It made it appear v chick-lit-y, which it wasn't.

First line from book: I woke up late that morning.

Review: I had mixed feelings when I began the book but by the end, I couldn't put it down. Susannah was actually very engaging, despite her bad life choices, and I found her plight far more moving than I anticipated. The conclusion was very satisfying -- I thought it was going to be a she-had-the-baby-and-lived-happily-ever-after wrap up, and it wasn't.

Tropes?: Men are rubbish.
