Cozy mystery with no cat or dog on the cover

Goodnight Nobody - Jennifer Weiner

I picked Goodnight Nobody for Cozy Mystery square.

 

 

An unsolved murder of a woman in suburbia. 

 

I have this for ages in the TBR pile. But this is really not my usual cup of tea and I would leave this on the self for another few years if it is not for this Halloween Bingo. 

 

Now start reading. I hope this wouldn't be a fast read. 

 

Oh crap. 

 

This woman Kate character is annoying and stupid. She found a dead body and there is a clue. What she did with the clue? She pocketed it before the police could find it.

 

Why? Because the clue involved her ex-fd. She is now married with children and when there was a note with her ex-fd no on it, instead of allowing the police to their work, she hide the evidence. 

 

Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. 

 

She told this to her friend Janie. Janie is also a stupid woman who called the murder fabulous because it is a juicy story. What horrible, airheads are these characters? 

 

What's wrong with them? 

 

Excerpt:
"As far as my fellow mommies were concerned, saying you were bored was admitting to being about two steps away from drowning your babies in the bathtubs, something so sinful and forbidden you could never 'fess up to it'. But here I was, 'fessing', "I;m bore, and this murder, while horrifying, is also the single most interesting thing that's happened here...".

 

I hate this book. 

 

What's wrong with this woman?

 

Why is she so pathetic? She had sex with her husband, and not satisfied. Instead of finding help with the relationship, she kind of get on with it.  

 

This is boring me to tears. 

 

These women are pathetic, annoying, and so full of crap.  I hate this book. Katie bumped into Evan, her ex-bf. 

 

Seriously? Even characters in books should have a mind to nurture, and think of something other than how she look and going after handsome men.

 

These two women are insufferable. The murder investigation progress slowly. Evan finally fond her and want to rekindle their relationship even when he knew she is married. 

 

The best friend Janie get revenge on the ex-bf Evan because he wanted to marry his current gf? Seriously. Selfish, illogical, inconsiderate, reacting without really thinking through on what they were doing. 

 

Horrible book. I don't understand who would like this kind of story when women are stupid bitches, and men are just handsome body with dick. 

 

Bad mother and horrible bitch this Katie character is. She act like she is privileged and demand everyone to accommodate to her needs. She bully her way in the bus and asked men to give her seats for her and her children. I hope there is no such woman in real life or I would have to tell this bitch that it is her own fault that she got pregnant and didn't get an abortion. Having children is her choice and she has to live wit that decision, no one else has to be inconvenienced for her poor life choice. They don't have to give up their seats for this bitch or her young-lings.   

 

She didn't really detect but get wide swing and missed, while getting herself and her friend in danger. 

 

The ending is a bit fast and no clue would bring you to that conclusion. It is a mess and only the 3rd chapter is readable as it contain less stupid bitch stuff. 

I really don't get why men, Ben the husband, Evan the ex-bf, would want anything to do with such pathetic stupid woman. This is anti-feminist kind of book. 

  

Horrible horrible book. Do not read this book as you it would give you wrong impression of what American women are like in real life. 

 

This book give a disservice to full time mom, working mom, and men. The men in this book is nothing more than cardboard character from some boxer ads. Horrible. Lack of imagination and understanding of how the world work.

 

Shallow. That's the word I would use to describe the world view of this book. Shallow.
