I found this book to be so offensively bad, and such a complete waste of my time that I did something I’ve never done before I wrote the author. Super slow developing fishbbowl Characters whose fishbolw don’t endear them to us, but in fact, made us glad not only mlnyowski they’re not our roommates, but that they are made up and we’re never going to meet them? I love picking up a book on a whim and getting turned on to new authors – I found this book to be so offensively bad, and such a complete waste of my time that I did something I’ve never done before I love picking up a book on a whim and getting turned on to new authors — based on the disaster that was “Fishbowl” I can safely say I won’t be picking up anything else by Sarah Mlynowski.
Unfortunate, as reviews of her other books seem to be better, but frankly, I’m not willing to risk several hours of my time reading something that might turn out to be the same sort of drivel she penned in Fishbowl.
Sep 15, Ali rated mlynowsli did not like it Shelves: This is quite possibly the worst book ever written. I don’t quite understand what mlynowksi, because Milkrun wasn’t awful, not great, but certainly not like this.
If the author set out to create the least likeable characters ever created, then she succeeded. Hated the switching between characters and the random narrator. I think I paid 50 cents for this at a used book sale and I definitely overpaid.
The book I sarxh before this was an excellent, but dark, Karin Slaughter. I decided to read this next because I thought it would be a light, funny read.
The characters in this book are so unlikable, I found myself wishing they’d encounter Karin Slaughter’s murderer. The Borders sticker on sara back of the book said it was YA, but it definitely wasn’t. I think it said that because this author has written YA b I think I paid 50 cents for this at a used book sale and I definitely overpaid.
I think it said that because this author has written YA mlynowxki. Maybe she got confused that she was writing supposedly adult characters in their 20’s.
I have read many YA books with characters far more mature than these idiots. These girls are shallow, immature and so, so stupid, especially Allie.
I don’t understand how anyone could live with such an inconsiderate, annoying slob, let alone be friends with her. I darah Sex and the City and everything that came out of it for many of the same reasons I hated this bookbut someone needed to tell Allie he’s just not that into you! And then slap her in the face. It was not believable to me at all that Josh would be in love with her. She did nothing but talk about Clint and act like a complete moron. She was supposed to be a college graduate?
Maybe Canadian colleges have lower standards that those in the US because I found it hard mlynowdki believe she was even a high school graduate. As for the other two girls, they were no more likable and equally selfish. If you’re going to paint Jodine as a germophobe with OCD tendencies, you can’t expect readers to fihsbowl she wouldn’t flush the toilet.
I also couldn’t figure out why they would be friends with man-stealing Emma who always needed to be mlynoeski center of male attention.
Do yourself a favor: Jan 26, Lisa rated it did not like it Shelves: Oh my god this is a terrible book. Looking back, I’m not quite sure why I even bothered finishing it, but I think it’s probably because I needed to make sure that the one girl ended up with the guy that she was obviously going to end up with. So again, I’m not sure why I bothered finishing this. I don’t think real people actually act like this.
I mean, I know some annoying people, but none Oh my god this is a terrible book. I mean, I know some annoying people, but none of them are quite as one-dimensional as these three.
The Type A, anal-retentive law student who isn’t capable of loving anyone? The slutty girl who sleeps around because her dad didn’t love her enough? The chubby, ditzy virgin who’s in love with the friend who is obviously too much of a man-whore to like her back?
I’ve got to stop stealing books from my sister. Feb 17, Tin rated it liked it Shelves: I fishbowk she needs to earn it, after all the crap and misery she made her roommates go through. Manny deserves to be happy too, but not fizhbowl Jodine. He deserves better than that. And i’m happy with how their story ended.
But i have to admit, being the only one among the three girls to have a happily-ever-after feels just about right. Although flawed, she was on the poor receiving end of her roommates crazy antics.

She deserves all the love and Josh. Still loved the book though. I still have a few more Mlynowski on my shelf that i can’t wait to read. I really love who the author uses the different chapters to seperate which point of view we are hearing the story from.
Each Character has a mynowski and seperate voice and the writing style reflects their personalities. The chapters told by the all knowing narrator are hilariously written and a fun way to see how a third person outside of the inner minds of the charcters views them from the outside.
Very insightful and clever. The writing is quick and sharp and this is a very fun read. I enj I really love who the author uses the different chapters to seperate which point of view we fishowl hearing the story from.
Mlyowski enjoyed getting to know these three girls and following their love lives intertwined with the need to raise some serious cash to fix their burned kitchen. Three completely different people thrown together as roommates and how they come to work together and learn a lot about themselves. A great, fun book. View all 4 comments. Feb 23, Virginia rated it did not like it. This fisgbowl is horrendous. So they work, asrah that’s it. The comedy is stupid and the dramatic effect doesn’t work.
So I guess the idea told through the theme’s is work hard to accomplish what you need, but that wasn’t what I felt. The three protagonists didn’t actually work hard at all to accomplish anything and yet they still accomplish what th Why? The three protagonists didn’t actually work hard at all to accomplish anything and yet they still accomplish what they want.
Not sarau mention their utterly annoying. There wasn’t any symbolism I could recall in this story and there are no actuall reasons to like this book. I dont recommend this at all. My point is made. Nov 18, Brandi darah it did not like it.
Fishbowl by Sarah Mlynowski
This is not the greatest book. The storyline seemed cute and funny women with different personalities live as roomates together and finally become friends The book was just to much The bitchy character was to bitchy, the sweet character was to sweet, and the bossy one was to bossy. I couldn’t really feel a connection to any of the characters in the book. I felt as if the author was playing into very stereotypical roles. For instance, the bossy character had a high-paying influencial job, t This is not the greatest book.
For instance, the bossy character had a high-paying influencial job, the bitchy character was thin and beautiful and only wore the most expensive clothing, and the sweet character was the usual chubby, “plain jane” clueless character.
