A Girls Guide to Hunting and Fishing + Giveaway!

Happy Wednesday Everyone! 

Today's post is dedicated entirely to my review of April's Book: 

This book is part of my 2014 Monthly Challenges and it was a quick and easy ready.  I finished the book in about two weeks.

Synopsis (from Amazon):

Hailed by critics as the debut of a major literary voice, The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing has captivated readers and dominated bestseller lists. Generous-hearted and wickedly insightful, it maps the progress of Jane Rosenal as she sets out on a personal and spirited expedition through the perilous terrain of sex, love, relationships, and the treacherous waters of the workplace. With an unforgettable comic touch, Bank skillfully teases out universal issues, puts a clever, new spin on the mating dance, and captures in perfect pitch what it's like to be a young woman coming of age in America today.

My Reaction:

Overall, I enjoyed reading this book.  When I first heard about the book from a girlfriend, she was not too thrilled about it because it is more a collection of short stories that seemed to not be connected at all, but if you take time and care to pay attention, you will see how Rosenal uses each and every one of her stories to connect the reader to her life and her experiences growing up.

Rosenal takes you through her experiences of life through her eyes as she watches all of the relationships around her and how they work.  As she grows up, you see a romantic relationship of her brothers, her parents marriage and her own personal romantic relationship.  You also see how important relationships outside of romance become as you are winding through her life.  Rosenal uses these stories (among others) to teach the reader the importance of "growing up" and becoming a "responsible adult".

If you are looking for a book that can be easily read and enjoyed, then I would recommend this reading for you! If you are not someone who enjoys reading short stories, then I might shy away from this week.
