Book Review: The Modern Break-Up By Daniel Chidiac


“When it comes to dating, I seem to be going around in a circle. The ones I want don’t want me, and the ones who want me, I don’t want.”

“I don’t know, I just think there’s too much miscommunication between guys and girls. I mean, no one knows what the fuck is going on. We need to have the discussion. We need to vent it and get it out in the open,” I said, grabbing my drink from the bedside table.

_____ sat on the edge of the bed and put his shirt back on. “What do you want to know?”

“I just want to know what guys are thinking. I mean we have sex and stuff and nothing lasting ever comes of it,” I said, taking a cigarette out and lighting it. I knew I shouldn’t be smoking in the room, but I was too drunk to care.

“I don’t think I should say. We don’t know everything girls are thinking. I think some things are better left unsaid.”


To those that have written negative reviews which I’ve read, READ THE DAMN TITLE OF THIS NOVEL! If you do not like it perhaps that is because this is just how things have been done in this day and age with the generations?

You certainly must be old if you do not agree with this novel because it actually is on point. It may be crappy and so forth but the book from the get-go is being honest is the majority of young peoples lives of how communication works between men and women.

I couldn’t believe when I realised it was a man that wrote this because it is so spot on. As a young woman I have already experienced or know someone that has all of these things. So many elements in this novel it is as if the author is in my mind grabbing at my thoughts.

I found this novel to be a great discussion between friends, it is as if you are along with them in their daily discussions. Hence it was a little inconsistent however it is written as they are living their daily lives.

It is like a chiller version of Sex and The City.

5/5 Stars
