Story had a very slow and uninspiring start. Although Claire's feelings of sorrow and remorse were well-written and thoroughly crafted, I found it rather exhausting and dismal. It was endearing to see all of Claire's friends pushing her to do something for her birthday, but there were a few too many characters to keep track of, especially when one was just as forgettable as the last.
Eventually, Claire succumbs to their advice and does something. So what does she do? She goes to a bar, of course. You'd think for someone who works in a bar, one would be sick of them.
All in all, I found Claire to be a dull character with no real depth, making it hard for me to keep up with her insipid story.
My rating: 2 stars
