When I first saw this book, I thought that this was really about how to catch and get a guy fall in love with a girl. But, it was not what I expected it to be about. It was much better.
I have to say that the cover and title seduced me. But, the story had a different effect on me. I can’t say that I didn’t like it but it was somehow worth reading for me.
“It occurred to me that the quiet in the suburbs had nothing to do with peace.”
The girls guide to hunting and fishing, for me focuses on another identity crisis. It’s about Jane Rosenal and how she worked way from defiant teenager to a reluctant career girl, growing older and getting smarter, Jane maneuvers her way through love, sex, relationships, and the occasional upsides and downturns of the workplace. She reluctantly succumbs to the questionable advice offered in a pop-psych book entitled How to Meet and Marry Mr. Right.
It’s made up of short stories, snapshots of main character’s life. Even though the stories were quick I felt like I got this wonderful portrait of the character Jane.
I think, Melissa Bank uses the cute analogy of “hunting and fishing” to relate to the process of finding oneself and one’s soulmate.
All in all, I was a little confused because some of the thoughts in the stories were not elaborated very well, but the one liners and the ideas knocked me upside the head.
