`Read Kindle ï Jillian ⚷ Megan, recently out of college and working a meaningless job as a gastroenterologist s secretary, openly hates all of her friends for being happy and successful She makes herself feel better by obsessively critiquing the behavior of her coworker, Jillian, a rapid cycling, grotesque optimist, whose downfall is precipitated by the purchase of a dog I m pretty sure I read this because someone compared it to Eileen It s somewhat similar, I guess unlikeable directionless female narrator, saddled with ennui and hobbled by substance abuse and lack of ambition But it didn t exhilarate me in the same way That s not to say it was unpleasant it s well written and entertaining, novella length and imaginative But it was also mostly forgettable. Ok So here s what reading Jillian is like It s like waking up one morning with a stinging hangover and discovering a strange woman wielding a knife in your kitchen She s cutting freezer bagels and has possibly too large of a smile on her face and she tells you a rather funny story about someone she works with at the office, you know The entire time she s holding onto this knife and cutting an endless supply of freezer bagels You think to yourself, Who is she How did she get in here Th Ok So here s what reading Jillian is like It s like waking up one morning with a stinging hangover and discovering a strange woman wielding a knife in your kitchen She s cutting freezer bagels and has possibly too large of a smile on her face and she tells you a rather funny story about someone she works with at the office, you know The entire time she s holding onto this knife and cutting an endless supply of freezer bagels You think to yourself, Who is she How did she get in here That isn t my knife Did she bring her own What s up with the freezer bagels Why is she smiling like that Is she going to kill me I should probably leave and call the police But you don t because you want to hear the rest of her story because it s funny But then again, you don t want to die That s what reading this book is like Did I just hear a dog barking This is some potent writing I got into the skewed twinning between the focuses on Jillian and Megan, but I think the real skill here is how Bulter keeps you alternating between rooting for and not liking either of these characters It s masterfully done and very moving, even in a normal daily life kind of scenario It definitely beats you around a bit too if for no other reason for what and how much it gets under your skin, but you don t want to stop reading It s stressful, but very good I m This is some potent writing I got into the skewed twinning between the focuses on Jillian and Megan, but I think the real skill here is how Bulter keeps you alternating between rooting for and not liking either of these characters It s masterfully done and very moving, even in a normal daily life kind of scenario It definitely beats you around a bit too if for no other reason for what and how much it gets under your skin, but you don t want to stop reading It s stressful, but very good I m impressed Thank you to netgalley and the publishers for a copy of this book This is the kind of style of writing I enjoy and can almost relate too It s a short, quick novel and as the characters could be considered unlikeable I found this novel to be just the right length of exposure into their lives After reading this I would look forward to readying other novels by Halle Butler
