The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing is a series of vignettes in the life of Jane Rosenal, mostly about her struggles with relationships. Jane is smart, funny and has a great family (no Mama Drama). She's on the way up in the publishing business but she still can't figure out men. The major relationship she has is with a man 20 years older than herself. A man who she admires, he's a famous editor, but who is incredibly flawed.
There were times when I enjoyed the humour and the situations but I also had to scratch my head at some things. The whole book is told from Jane's point of view except for two parts. In one, Jane's cousin introduces his girlfriend to his mother and sisters. It was very bizarre and I wondered who these people were and what was the point. Then the second last section is told in second person ("you") about a woman who gets breast cancer. I assumed this was Jane but the illness never comes up again. It left me out to sea. Very strange.
It's not the worst thing I've ever read but not the best either.
