All fall down

A Novel by Jennifer Weiner

Description: Allison Weiss got her happy ending—a handsome husband, an adorable daughter, a job she loves, and the big house in the suburbs. But while waiting in the pediatrician’s office, she opens a magazine to a quiz about addiction and starts to wonder…Is a Percocet at the end of the day really different from a glass of wine? Is it such a bad thing to pop a Vicodin after a brutal Jump & Pump class…or if your husband ignores you? She tells herself that the pills help her make it through her days…but what if her increasing drug use, a habit that’s becoming expensive and hard to hide, is turning into her biggest problem of all? With a sparkling comedic touch and a cast of unforgettable characters, this remarkable story of a woman’s slide into addiction and struggle to find her way back up again is Jennifer Weiner’s most masterful work yet.

I find it really weird that a book with such a heavy and serious topic would need “a sparkling comedic touch” there’s nothing funny about addiction… the story itself fell flat, there didn’t seem to be much of a plot at all, and the few plots that were mentioned didn’t end up panning out, it was actually ignored most of the time. They’d bring something up and then all of a sudden it’s like it never happened. The series of events in this book didn’t feel realistic…The characters were all weird and two dimensional. There was no substance to any of them, a few of them were eveb completely pointless to the story and a few of them just really annoyed me. It wasn’t planned right and it wasn’t written right, it was just bleh.

I rate this book
