Rating 475I loved this book Such an unexpected gem of a read I went into this one blind I knew nothing about it I read no reviews I freuently check out my library for new audio books I saw this bold orange cover of a book called ueenie It drew me in I listened to a sample of the audio A heavy accent by the narrator It drew me in I grabbed a copy of the audio and jumped right inueenie is a hot mess She s a 26 year old Jamaican woman living in London and just completely a mess We meet her as she is taking a break from her live in boyfriend which HE wants not her He asks her to move out and by this point she s already on a downward spiral She can t face reality She s out of control She puts herself in a few dangerous situations I think She s got no money living in a nasty flat with a few flatmates she s not there for her job she lets the WORST men abuse her she has issues with how people see her as a black woman She doesn t feel she s worth it she really has had a hard life It s an absolute train wreck but you can t help but watch When she hits the lowest of lows she must bring herself back up And so you watch her bring herself out of the pit and show her strengthTo be honest I almost stopped with this one Initially it was a bit sexually graphic for me Just not what I tend to read I actually started another book but then I did read a few reviews One said stick with it Thanks Esil So I pushed on and I m so glad I did The book gets off to a bit of a rocky start But it immediately just jumps in to a life already out of control All I can say is stick with it When someone has issues and is mentally struggling it s never a pretty sight But you must see everything in it s entirety to see where ueenie is at I m so glad I stuck with this one It made me cringe made me glad I m married oh the horrors of dating apps made me laugh but made me root for ueenie Even though a few times I wanted to shake heryou knew she would just make the worst decisionsI also must say publishers DON T COMPARE THIS TO BRIDGET JONES This is so not like Bridgette Jones other than a young girl living in London and dating ueenie is so much If you think you are going to find a Bridgette Jones here skip this one Romantic comedy this is NOT Anyway I loved this book and just loved the audio narration The narrator did a fabulous job A highlight of a read for 2019 for me I ll remember this one for some time So why not 5 stars I m stingy with 5 stars But I had to knock it a bit for being uite sexually graphic yes made it hard to listen to the audio when husband is around saying what ARE you listening to and the reading of emails and text back and forth initially drove me bonkers So far this is my top read of the year And I ll just say give this one a shot and just stick with it It s such a reward in the end

Summary ✓ ueenie Author Candice Carty-Williams ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Review ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ò Candice Carty-Williams Summary ueenie Author Candice Carty-Williams Ional newspaper where she’s constantly forced to compare herself to her white middle class peers After a messy break up from her long term white boyfriend ueenie seeks comfort in all the wrong placesincluding several hazardous men who do a good job of occupying brain space and a bad job of affirming self worthAs ueenie careens from one uestionable decision. I empathized a lot with the protagonist and her struggles along with the portrayal of mental health including the cultural stigma of seeking therapy how childhood affects the way we treat relationships how we internalize racism and learn to love ourselves as a WOC etc The audiobook narrator also did a great job at bringing the story to life I struggle to emotionally connect with this book as much as I should mainly because the progression of the narrative felt disjointed The first 23 of the book is repetitive in her making poor decisions with terrible white men then the last 13 of the book becomes of a grander statement of being a black girl and reveals the root cause of why ueenie makes so many flawed decisions I wish the two had been better interwoven together for a nuanced portrayal rather than a grand revelation towards the end As a result this felt forced rather than proper representation especially when a lot of the writing seemed to generalize the struggles of black women due to the main character speaking for all black women and making blanket statements VS presenting this as an individual case that s symptomatic of a systemic issue I think what would ve helped is if the author had peppered hints to ueenie s past and childhood throughout the book in a natural way rather than dumping everything towards the end and framing it as a grand political statement Overall I have no problem with the protagonist s self destructive tendencies and repetitive mistakes at all I truly empathize with her and have had a similar mindset it was so the disjointed execution that prevented me from being fully impacted by what the author intended for this story
