Nina is a year-old successful food writer living in London. She is an independent and seemingly well-off woman in her own right. We find out towards the beginning of the book that Nina was once in a seven-year-long relationship with Joe, who she now continues to have a close friendship with.
Joe has since moved on to a new relationship with a woman named Lucy. Nina and Max begin an intense partnership which culminates in Max telling Nina that he sees a future with her and that he loves her. As the title of the book might suggest, this novel examines in detail the act of ghosting and the impact that being ghosted has on your psyche. I felt that the character descriptions in this book were very thorough and well-rounded.
The main character Nina has a clear voice and motivations. At no point do you consider Nina to be a pathetic, lonely, woman who just wants to be loved; this makes it all the more devastating when Nina is treated unreasonably. Lola is a veteran of the apps and is described as a sweet, joyful, social butterfly that seems to have a magnetic personality, but alas, she is unlucky in love.
I especially enjoyed a moment in the story where Lola is in a sense digitally haunted over WhatsApp by the man that she is dating, with her giving in to some fundamentally quite masochistic behaviour that many of us can identify with. I cancelled dinner with a friend last night to do it. Katherine is married with and is pregnant with her second for the majority of the book.
Read If:. You will like this novel if you enjoy books that discuss in depth the nuts and bolts of different types of relationships as we get into our early 30s; this includes romantic relationships, friendships, and families. Made Me Think:. I feel that this book is largely about honesty and responsibility in dating.
It discusses the idea that the power dynamic between heterosexual men and women changes when we reach our 30s. Nina confronts the man who ghosts her friend with a perfect speech that has stayed with me ever since I finished the book:. Can you not see how selfish that is?
I think that this demonstrates quite succinctly how leading a woman on in her 30s, especially a woman that has decided that she does want to get married and have children, is unethical. The book also touches on how dating apps have made it too easy for people to spout intense platitudes and declarations of love on a whim and then run from them as easily as they were expressed.
With apps like Tinder it is so easy to forget that there is a real person behind the pictures; real thoughts, feelings, and dreams. You can unmatch or delete someone off an app, but they will still exist in the real world. You can also support us by following us on Instagram, and by ing our City Girl Network city wide!
