Has a nice begining, but sarts off a little slow

when I first read a book by Jennifer Weiner, I knew that I would read anything of hers that I could get my hands on. Believe I have read them all now. She has humor, sadness, laughter and all of the ingredients that it take to make a book a good read. Hard to put down once you start so keep your day open.

I read this book because I wanted to finish all of Jennifer Weiner's book. Mind you the stories are very very short, and don't go into a lot of depth, but it's certainly still interesting to read. It opens your eyes to your everyday life, that 'what ifs', and 'what nots'. I found the story about the mom/child and the temper tantrums. How she found a young mom in her class who seemed to be a wonderful mom, yet they grew apart. It's not the best book I have read in my entire life, but it's a good filler if you are waiting for something else to come out.

I didn't really like this book although I did finish it. I would not recommend this book over any of her other ones.

I was slightly disappointed by this book. It seemed like her agent wanted her to do a book and she couldn't come up with anything so she just took a jumbled mess of ideas and stuck them in a book. I like her full fledged composed stories instead.

I found this book disappointing. It is a collection of short stories, but they are so well written that you could write a book about each one. I was irritated that the stories ended where they did. I stopped reading about halfway through because I was so disappointed.

Not one of Jennifers best. The book is a collection of short stories. From first glance you would think it was going to be stories about regretting past loves and what not, but the stories dont come together in the end and leave you quite confused. I was not satisfied with this book at all.

I usually love Jennifer Weiner's book, however was not impressed with this one. It was a bunch of short stories, some better than others. I hated that I would get into a story and it would end, with no real good conclusion. I would not reccomend this book, even though it was discounted.

I could not get into this book. I'm a fan of Jennifer Weiner but this book was awful.

I am a fan of Jennifer Weiner, but this book is horrible! I could not get through it, and I very rarely give up on a book. Numerous friends of mine also thought this book was a waste of time. I suggest reading ANY of her others besides this one.

I am not much of a fan of short story writing but i loved loved this collection. I have always found Jennifer to be quite witty but I had reached a point where i was really getting weary of chick lit. I bought this for a long bus ride and fell in love with each and every story. She is extremely talented and the stories were amazing. Her talent for writing really shines through with this collection. highly recommended.

The Guy Not Taken is a book compiled of multiple short stories by Jennfier Weiner. I have loved all of her other books that I have read, but this one didn't really keep me as interested. I am not really a short story person which is the only reason why I didn't like this book as much as the others. Overall, the stories weren't bad.

This is not the sort of thing I would typically read so I don't know how it stacks up within it's genre, but it was painfully awful. How does something like this even get published? It was like an undergrad creative writing project, awkward and shallow, lacking anything soulful or even insightful. I finish everything, not this. This wasn't worth the time. The author leaves her poor characters so flat that they aren't worth our concern or time. Was this put out for a quick pay day? Does the publisher have so little respect for readers that it would expect us to hand over our cash in exchange for this garbage? Don't waste your money, there are a lot of other good contemporary short stories out there.
