I don’t feel embarrassed when I’m writing about myself because I’m a massive oversharer even in person, but it does affect how other people see me which is crap.

The story is dull, the main character is extremely annoying, the narrator’s voice and tone almost put me to sleep. I want Dad to preserve Joe in his mind that way because what if Joe changes his mind and I’ve already told my parents? It’s hard to balance your friendships and an intense romantic love, but one isn’t inherently good and the other isn’t evil. And in some ways it is and can see why most love it, however this style of metaphoric hyperbolic writing is just so overdone in the book that I constantly lost concentration. I wonder if I should ring my parents, but then I remember the way Dad held onto Joe’s shoulders after dinner.

To lay yourself open like this, it’s entirely impressive, and to do so with such introspection and intelligence as well. The end of something is so often its most poignant part, and she gives her ending the weight and romanticisation it deserves. This pulled on all the heartstrings and I wish there‘d be a second installment at some point so I can check in with Annie and where she‘s at in life. Vogue dating columnist Annie Lord's debut, Notes on Heartbreak, is a visceral yet funny recollection of the breakdown of her five-year-relationship, told in her distinctive, lyrical style .

A large part of the enjoyment of doing something was telling him about what happened after it happened, the minutiae of it: thick hot air as the Tube was held at a red signal, me dropping my lighter when I tried to pass it to the man asking for it.

It felt like this book was created for me, to help save me from my wallow and self pity in the wake of a recent, blindsiding breakup. Confronting yourself in that way raises the question of whether you think there’s a risk in writing about relationships and dating when it necessarily involves interpreting men’s behaviour! I was really happy when it seemed like they both felt happy and healed at the end, managing to maintain a friendship.
