With everything mounting against her, a cranky and increasingly despairing Ruby will have to find out if her life’s larger indignities are the result of bad luck, or a chronically bad attitude. What follows is a walking tour of the hilarious depths you can sink to if you stop exercising your best judgment.
Bathing and the Single Girl was nothing like I was expecting. I prepared myself for an edgy, slightly controversial, hilarious story about an actress who is constantly blundering through life. But that wasn't what I got. I found myself being offended by what the main character, Ruby, had to say. Mainly about anorexia, bulimia, and people who struggle with addiction. I had a very hard time connecting to Ruby and after about a third of the novel, I found I couldn't continue.
I'm sure that some readers will absolutely love this book. However, Bathing and the Single Girl was not my forte. Ruby is too snarky, judgmental, and cruel for my taste. Though I do share her love of bubble baths and wine.
The below rating is based on the fact that I could not finish the novel.
Rating: 1/5 Cups
