The author claims the protagonist is 28 years old, yet make her behave more like a kid, a 16 years old. I'm not complaining about the potty mouth (pretty sure I swear more than that anyway), but the whole way she's described not taking her job seriously at all (including at the end of the book stating that she's been following all kind of on-line courses while idling at work... really? is that part of the author's experience?), or the way she just has to be reminded about what is and what is not legal, when it's an obvious thing, again the rebellion is more teenager-like than almost-thirty adult.
Other already have noted how sexualized is the book -- I would point out in particular that not only it's sexualized but part of it is just to fill the pages so that you increase the count. Why else would she spend a full page listing genres of various porn out there? And describing some as well. There are tons of filler over the book, which is probably why it reads fast (the only positive side): the "lists" she makes up on all the most disparate things and without rhyme or reason to the story, the half page of "dialogue" where two characters just list words that sound funny (and obviously has to have "smegma" in it just to remind us that she can use as many dirty words as any other author, if not more), and so on.
Again, the problem is not the dirty talk per se, after all it's an adult novel, but the fact that it's there just to make the protagonist as crass as you can make her. She's crass, and shallow, and lacks so much common sense that I was disappointed she was still alive by the end of the book. So one of your friends has been killed, and whawt you do? You turn yourself into a detective *while ignoring any single possible precaution*. Even when you spot that one of the witnesses has "murderer tatoos" (and how the heck did you know how to do that?), you go back seeing them alone.
Finally, the last straw for me is that I can honestly partially understand how women feel when they get objectified in books and TV, as this novel objectifies men instead: almost every single male character tries to get the protagonist in bed because of her cup size, as explicitly noted by the author. The only one that ever does not stare at her (and seriously, you want to talk with the DA, you go dressed like a prostitute outside of a porn shop?) is told to be gay right away, and that's it, the whole plot point disappears in the night.
I'm worried by the reviewers who say they identify themselves in the protagonist. Because she _is_ just a dumb, shallow person, to which men are only attracted by her physical appearance (and I assume that's the only reason why she got hired, given that she explicitly doesn't have a work ethic), sustaining what can only be seen as sexual harassment from her boss simply because she wants to eat at restaurants she wouldn't be able to afford to begin with.
Save your money, do not buy this....Continua
