What She Saw...

What She Saw... Review

A fresh (in more than one sense) and honest new voice in fiction is extravagantly displayed in this first novel that candidly dissects modern romance.

Plagued with weird parents, an underdeveloped body, and a mind on the verge of self-deconstruction, Phoebe Fine feels ill-equipped for a journey through the hardening chambers of the late twentieth-century heart. But from fifth grade and Roger Mancuso, equal parts baby Brando and court jester, through her early adult life with New Media executive Neil Schmertz, a babytalker who prefers spooning to sex, Phoebe trudges defiantly through guyland, armed with a tart tongue, and propelled by an insatiable desire to be loved.

    I couldn't put this book down, but i tend to have a morbid sense of humor. The main character is deeply depressed. At the same time I had a very sick fascination with learning more about her. If you a...

    A completely unlikable main character made this book torture to get through. She goes through each guy she has ever dated, like or looked at chapter by chapter. I found myself rooting for her to stay ...

    I've never been so excited and pleased to finish a book. This was absolutely the worst thing I've read in months and I would not recommend this book to a friend, enemy or neutral acquaintance. Had I n...

    I'm not sure why I finished this book, when I knew 50 pages in that I wasn't really interested in it. But finish I did, and I have to say, I was left entirely dissatisfied. I don't know if it was the ...

    This book is like nothing I’ve ever read before. I was wary to reads this because of the low ratings on goodreads, but I’m glad I did. Phoebe Fine can be an infuriating character. Some decisions s...

    Soon after I read this book, I tossed it out along with my retro polyester pants and orange creepers. The concept of the novel is a clever one and it starts out as being cute and funny. Even as a gay ...

    I'm not sure which book or blog recommended this book (I think it might have been Nancy Pearl's Book Lust) but it was okay. Most reviews either loved or hated this book but I'm more ambivalent. Phoebe...

    Sometimes I need some chick lit...I don't really remember anything about this book....

  • Christine

    Thrift store find. I don't think I'll finish it. The beginning was funny and bright, but now we are in poor Phoebe Fine's long terrible teens-early twenties. I didn't really need a reminder of how hor...

    I read this book because it was on the must read books in your 20s list and I absolutely agree. This book is one of those that makes you sooo uncomfortable because you realize how vain and awful we ar...
