Comparing Before and After: The Break-Up Artist by Philip Segel


I chose this for my WoW pick(hosted by Breaking the Spine) back on November 13th of 2013! One of my first ones. Back then all I’d said was:

“This just sounds so fun to read.”

After reading it and reviewing it, it wasn’t as much fun as I thought it would be. I’m still not quite sure if I was supposed to see it as a satire or not but either way, I couldn’t get behind the main character and her ideals. Sometimes her methods to break up a couple involved a little public humiliation and it took a lot of will-power to get through those parts instead of being ‘nope, I’m done.’
