In chick lit, everyone’s always searching for Mr. Right. We want to know how we can spot him, what he looks and acts like and where we can find him; but what if we about all the things he isn’t? The Little Black Book of Big Red Flags gets into all those details that should have tipped you off a long time ago that he was not “The One.” In a very organized, methodical and funny way, Natasha Burton, Julie Fishman and Meagan McCrary have compiled various recounts, (horror) stories, top ten lists, rules and a whole lot more to inform you of all the ways to spot the guy you want to avoid, which will only lead you that much closer to Mr. Right. Before I get into my review, let me give you a little taste of the hilarity contained in this new nonfiction novel on how to spot Mr. Wrong.
Big Red Flags takes on a Carrie Bradshaw-like perspective, at times asking readers rhetorical questions about love, life and dating and always, sharing wisdom on past dating woes and disasters. Although the little novel is compiled of random tellings and retellings of the three authors’ and bloggers’ experiences in love and dating, it’s broken down in a very systematic fashion with different sections named by topic. Each section contains “WTF” moments, “Big Red Flag Stories”, “Red Flag Rules” and then they all conclude with a summary, “The Bottom Line” and a “Top Ten Red Flag” list. Overall, The Little Black Book of Big Red Flags was a quick, fun and humorous read…and hey, I even learned a thing or two about male encounters. A great book to gift to all your girlfriends, even Mom and Grandma.
