Book Review: With or Without You

When I picked up this book, I was looking for some basic, easy-to-read chick-lit. This is definitely a girly book, but the plot was much more substantial than I expected.

The book starts out with the main character and her long-term boyfriend in their kitchen. He up and leaves her, right after an unsuccessful in-vitro fertilization attempt. I know what you’re thinking: ‘Bastard!’, right?

But this is not your basic girl-gets-dumped-then-meets-someone-new story. She gets hell-a dumped, and then goes off on an adventure. The plot still follows the ex, and other characters, and weaves together a more complex plot than I expected.

What’s the Clever Chick rating? Why, I’m glad you asked. This earns a “I recommend it, and even gifted it to a friend”. In case you’re curious, that means, no it didn’t earn a place on my sacred shelves, and I probably won’t reread it. I was pleasantly surprised by the complexity of the plot and characters, and it was a bit of a departure from basic girly books.
