Why We Broke Up

Why We Broke UpWhy We Broke Up by Daniel Handler
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is the longest break-up letter I have ever read.

The outcome was a bit expected. I found it unnecessarily fast-paced. It seemed like I needed to catch my breath every time I read Min's (Minerva Green) narration of what happened. When I remind myself Daniel Handler is Lemony Snicket and he is indeed "wordy", I continued reading. It might have helped if I were a fan of classic films because there were a lot of movie titles mentioned. On the other hand, I like the way Min's raw, honest and heart-wrenching confession of her feelings. The premise of this story is weird in an interesting way.
