I mentioned the other day about being a completist – what I’m currently in a panic to complete is my Goodreads reading challenge. My friend Laurel suggested it near the beginning of summer and I thought 25 books in more than half a year was very attainable. Sitting at 16/25 books with 4 weeks left to go, it’s looking a little less so. So now I’m trying to power read 9 books in the next month – I have absolutely no idea if I’ll be able to do it!
To me, the first novel was the vastly superior one – much funnier and really more interesting. In this second instalment, I found Rosie’s character to be grating and not nearly as likeable – Don is our protagonist and we want everyone to be nice to him! I do love reading these books through Don’s eyes – it’s a very interesting viewpoint that we don’t often get to see. There are a ton of new characters in this book – some interesting, some not so much. Like I said before though, it was a very quick read, and if you are a completist like myself, I’m sure you’ll want to pick it up if you’ve read the first book!
