    One thought on “The U-haul Diary”

    1. Well It depends how much you can ignore subtexts and just enjoy light readingI mean, as a light reading it's a nice little life-story of a lesbian, told through a series of ex-girlfriends.It's an easy read - not very deep, somewhat entertaining and funny, usually well written (except a few times the author got stuck on the same point for ages). It's a collection of short stories, weaving together a normal(ish) life story, and it delivers on this promise.On the other hand, at times it was hard fo [...]

    2. The best thing about this book - other than quite a few laugh out loud moments - is that I feel completely justified in never going to another gay bar: after reading this, I feel like I logged the last of my bar time and can stay home with my wife and sit in boring splendor on my couch.Seriously - this reminded me of why I’m glad I’m well out of my twentiesd my thirties. And married. A fun read and a great way to kill an afternoon or two.

    3. So funny and so relatable. A humorous and heartfelt account of the author's experience in the lesbian dating world. The reader is compelled to root for the author because she is so endearing. There are moments you desperately want to intervene on her behalf and steer her clear of certain ladies. You want to protect her, set her up with your best friend, and beat the hell out of the people who mess with her. You want her to be happy and to find her person because she deserves it. You also laugh a [...]

    4. Funny book, well-writtenUnless you're lucky enough to meet your life-long love right off, most of us go through a series of dating partners. If you're a lesbian, two additional factors come into play: 1. A limited dating pool that means that you're eventually sharing exes with your friends (who may themselves be exes). And 2. Women often want to move in together fairly quickly. Hence-the U-Haul effect. The author captures all this with humor and humanity. I recommend this book without reservatio [...]

    5. Stereotypical lesbian book with transmisogyny, body shamming and racism. This book tried to hard to be funny but just made it feel the author was rambling. Rather then trying to push how important communication in relationship this book is a basically how not to date someone. Short and quick read.I gave it three stars because the writing is not bad but the author put to much of herself in the book and it shows. I do appreciate some of the jokes, and I liked that this was a story about an older l [...]

    6. This was a pretty cute story, lots of humor. It has a few of the lesbian clichés everyone has heard about: hence the title, but they are springboards to really funny stories, with some thoughtful introspection throughout. Her descriptions are really rich and vivid--maybe a little TOO accurate, as I joked with a friend that I recognized her and then was informed that she's actually one of the exes. Oooops! But, it made for a hilarious night of teasing her. I'd definitely recommend this book if y [...]

    7. Finally! A witty and honest story of real dating experiences by someone who just happens to be a lesbian. She views her life with a comedic twist that is relatable across gender and orientation. You and your friends are going to use this book to quote and reference people you've dated. Guaranteed!

    8. I very much enjoyed reading this wonderful authors debut novel, with a variety of interesting characters and humorous, witty narration. We get a brief, but extremely satisfying glimpse into KB Drapers fantastic mind. I literally laughed out loud, many times. A must read!!!

    9. Quite funnyGiven that the author is about my age, I absolutely related to many of these stories. They were really truly funny!

    10. Sweet and funnyI laughed a lot. Absolutely couldn't put it down. For anyone tired of the dating game an absolutely must read.

    11. Not good. The series of girlfriends felt like a parade of 2-dimensional people, simply set-ups for strained jokes.

    12. Great readCute and realistic, believable. Good character developmentfeel in love with some, some were nemesis. Summed up well in the end.

    13. Oh yes!!A wonderful, laugh- out loud, snort to yourself book. Relatable, well written, easy to read book. You will not be disappointed!!
