Product Description

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, Alison Brie, Leslie Mann, and Damon Wayans Jr.! From the coauthor of He’s Just Not That Into You and a former story editor for Sex and the CityHow to Be Single is about one woman’s attempts to navigate a world filled with ever-evolving definitions of love.

Julie Jenson is a 37-year-old book publicist in New York. She's also single - and has been for six years. When her friend Georgia's husband dumps her for a samba teacher, Julie gathers her four single girlfriends for one momentous night of New York singlehood. Following a night that started with Steaks & Martinis and ended with topless bar dancing and a trip to the hospital, Julie decides that she's fed up with New York's singles scene once and for all. Her friends are all beautiful, smart and successful - but between the five of them, there's more dysfunction and disappointment than she can handle. So she quits her job and sets off to find how women around the world deal with the dreaded phenomenon of the Single Life. From Paris to India, to Iceland and back to New York, Julie finds out how to make her crazy life work.

Written in Tuccillo's pitch-perfect and hilarious voice, HOW TO BE SINGLE is the ultimate novel for the single girl in us all.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not my favorite book. 6 May 2016
By Bailey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read this book on the recommendation of a friend, who recommended it as a short and easy read. The book is short, but I found it difficult to get through. This book features 4 women of varying personalities and careers, all of whom are single. I found the primary character somewhat awful, and my dislike for her made me want to skip ahead. Honestly, I only really felt like I would be able to tolerate one of the women in real life. The women are clearly financially stable with solid relationships with others, yet none seem self aware or really empathetic (except maybe Ruby). And even when they do support one another at the end, I found it difficult to discern how much of their actions were generous or selfish. There was good character development and it was well written. I did learn a few things about other cultures, though I am not sure how broadly applicable the anecdotes shared are to the other cultures they are meant to represent. Honestly, it just wasn't my favorite book, and I wouldn't likely recommend it to anyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars I saw the movie and liked it, so I decided to read the book 15 July 2016
By Gree - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I saw the movie and liked it, so I decided to read the book. I described the book as 'full of surprises" simply because it is nothing at all like the movie. Other than the fact that four of the women are single (one is married with kids, but separates from her husband during the book) and one character shares the same name as a character in the movie, nothing is the same. The plot and characters are completely different than the movie and I'm not even sure how they even relate the book and the movie to each other. They are completely different entities. I've actually never seen a movie that's supposedly based on a book that is so completely unlike the book. So, I did find the book interesting, but if you are looking to read it because you liked the movie, you'll find absolutely nothing the same in it. Just be forewarned.

3.0 out of 5 stars Underwhelming 29 March 2017
By Lady Lisa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I wanted to love this book but didn't. While I was initially sympathetic to the female characters and their struggles, some of the plot twists were silly and seemed unnecessary, like when they into a bar brawl, which was frankly pretty dumb. Also, I felt that the characters of Julie and Alice were overdeveloped while Serena and Ruby's characters remained kind of shallow and not as deeply explored. Not as good as it could have been, but might be a pleasant afternoon read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love, love 12 January 2017
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Love, love, LOVED!!!! Saw the movie first, so expected the book to follow in the same vein as the movie...and I am so glad that the book is so incredibly different than the movie! The book follows a woman - I believe to be in her late 30s? - as she literally travels the globe to try to understand love and romance. I don't know if it was Tuccillo's intention for this to be eye opening and revealing to women (and men) in the United States, as many of us seem to live in a bubble and don't really understand what's happening globally, but that's precisely what HTBS did for me. Funny, semi-realistic, poignant. Will read again. Will take away new self-realizations when I do.

2.0 out of 5 stars Well written, but disappointing perspective 20 June 2012
By Rachel - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I read this book when I was single, and I guess the title just threw me off - I was expecting it to be supportive of single women and encouraging them that they don't need to "pair off" to be happy. Instead, the heroine and her single friends hate being single, and spend the entire book thinking about how much better off they would be if they weren't single. Well written, but only read this if you are single and want to mope about your life instead of being happy the way your are.
