Review: Ana Takes Manhattan

Ana Takes Manhattan
Ana Takes Manhattan by Lissette Decos
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is the story of Ana who is filming reality-tv shows about love and marriage while she’s trying to figure out her own journey with love. She takes a bunch of bad turns but eventually grows and finds her own way.

What made this book trickier is that Ana’s not a super-likable character. She’s pretty judgmental and even though you know it’s because of her fear, it becomes hard to feel compassion for her after a while. Her best friend also seemed like not the best character, to be honest, and it’s hard to tell why they are so close. The author tells us this often and has one or two examples of why but I didn’t find it believable. I did love Richard but there wasn’t enough of his character development in the story for me to get to know him enough.

In the end, it was an enjoyable and quick paced story but likely not one that will stick with me.

with gratitude to Forever (Grand Central Publishing) and netgalley for an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.
