It is always heartbreaking when the book does not live up to your expectation. Sometimes you just not a fan of the story, style or even genre. However, we believe this time we found something that is a new benchmark of a bad book for us from now on.
On first sight, Adults looks like an intriguing tale; it tells a story about a burn-out woman in her mid-thirties with an obsession about social media and her presence in it. And this is something that many people could relate to nowadays – anxiety given by a number of thumbs up, hearts and other electronic methods of gratitude. Have you ever dealt with something similar?
The whole book is written in the sarcastic and bitter tone, which looks very creative in the beginning. It is not a wrong way to address a subject – in fact; 🧔 quite enjoy reading a humorous approach to modern-day issues. However, when every single paragraph is oversaturated with sarcasm, annoying (on purpose) characters, worthless banter and ridicule of everything around us, the book becomes very cringy and not enjoyable eye-rolling experience. And this is coming from 🧔 – a big fan of dark comedy, parody and everything in between.
Overall, not a bad idea, but the execution is relatively poor. Give it a try if you think you might enjoy it, but overall would not recomend.
