Guest Blogger Book Review: Click

Amy Bromberg visited us as a guest blogger in July to talk about her experience meeting Jennifer Weiner. She's back today with a review of "Click" by Lisa Becker.

Book Review of "Click: An Online Love Story" by Lisa Becker
By Amy Bromberg

Renee is still single, dating no one, and her 30th birthday is around the corner. With zero boyfriends or dates in the near future, she agrees to dive into the online dating scene with her best male friend Mark, notorious for being very anal. Renee shares her online dating experiences with Mark, her sexaholic friend Shelley, and her friend Ashley, who has a constant stick up her ass. The story is told via emails, between Renee and her friends, and with the men she meets. Renee ends up meeting a variety of different guys, some being your A+ jerks, those who are plain old boring, to psychos. She finally meets Ethan, good looking and so sweet. But is he really who Renee thinks he is? Well, you just have to read the book to find out for yourself.

I found "Click: An Online Love Story" to be extremely entertaining and was laughing out loud many times. In the beginning it went a little slow for me, this being the first time reading a book that was completely told in email format. Also, due to some typos and errors, I was getting a bit frustrated. However, after a couple of chapters, the story started picking up and I couldn't put it down. I can relate to Renee's character because this is how my husband and I met. It would have been a much more pleasant and comical experience for me, if I had close friends with whom I was sharing my dates, especially those times when the guy I met was a complete jerk.

Take it from me, online dating can certainly make for some interesting and funny stories. If you are looking for a light and fun read, and a lot of laughs, then you should definitely check out this book.

Amy Bromberg grew up in Rockaway, NJ and graduated from Montclair State University in events/meeting planning and the hospitality industry.

Nice review. I read "Click" and enjoyed it. It makes me look at online dating in a different light.
