Book Review: Finishing Touches


I picked up this book brand new for $1 during Border's book sale. I was drawn to the modern chic design of the cover. I bought it without even reading the book title. That was 2 years ago when I was single. Two weeks ago when I was packing and moving to another apartment with my new husband, I found this somewhere in one of my cabinets, I then picked it up and started reading it while waiting for my movers to pack and move me, and then more waiting for my husband's movers to pack and move him. During all the waiting and standing by, I finished reading this entire novel in a weekend. This book is actually a pleasant surprise to me. I had very low expectation of it. It was just handy, it was just right there, it was just for me to kill time while waiting endlessly... But this turned out to be a great novel to read. It's not the predictable chick's lit / romance fiction with very predictable plot and very predictable ending. It's not one of those novels that are written under a formula. This novel is very different from others that I read. It's funny, witty, inspiring, uplifting, entertaining, tragic, and so very Los Angeles. I myself am very satisfied with the story's ending. In my opinion, it's a great ending that resolved all the issues and problems that the heroine had. It's an inspiring and uplifting ending. I like the fact that the story is very realistic and it shoves great lights on the modern day dynamics of friendship, relationships, careers and well, the modern day baggage that young people in America are carrying. The book has very funny dialogues that I found are just hilarious. It's really an interesting novel that is worth my time reading.
