This is How You Lose Her by Junot Diaz

Probably the most honest book I have read in a long time. A collection of short stories, Diaz goes through the emotional roller coaster about love, heartbreak and most importantly cheaters and cheating. The biggest and reoccurring story in this book is about a boy growing into a man named Yunior and love and loses.

He was a bit annoying to me because he was really doing it to himself. What I love about the book is the honestly. I was surprised by it; it really through me for a loop and I had to pause. The first short story kicked me in the chest because it really hit close to home as if he (Diaz) knew my story. Although it was in a male perspective it was deep.

The book did stale a bit. I got bored with the story and Yunior. He was getting annoying because all he did was complain; never did anything different.
Over all the book gets a 8 out 10. I thought it was great and would recommend everyone; men and women to read it.
