    I Came Out for This? by Lisa Gitlin is a uniue gem Imagine you’ve picked up the diary of a temperamental person who makes bad choices And I mean really bad choices Like say following a woman to another state even though she’s rejected you Are you holding that idea in your mind? You now have just the barest idea of what you’re in for when you read this bookFull review

    I did not like the diary style of this book nor did I like the main character Some may like it but it was not for me DNF

  3. Leah Leah says:

    I liked it though I can see how might not care for it It’s told in a diary style so it’s all after the fact and from joanna’s POV What is her truth may not be the actual truth in some of the situations as she gets uite emotional with things It’s interesting

    Some come out late some come out in a blaze of glory and for some it's just plain gory emotionally speaking Such is the case with Joanna Kane who realizes at the ripe age of forty something that she's a lesbian But the first love of her life isn't playing fair and Joanna chases the woman from Cleveland to DC on a fruitless uest that leads he to the real love of her lifeThis book had a lot of potential Reading like a diary it gives the reader a personal perspective of just coming out but it fails to make use of some of the elements in the story to make it a great one At one point the writer mentions that Joanna is menopausal as if it is significant but then never mentions it again It fails to use the vibrant Cleveland LGBT scene or play the heroine often against the back drop of the uniue cast At two hundred and ninety four pages being longer would have helped to bring these elements out But overall it was a fair read

    I wish I could have liked this book as a whole but I cannot say that is the truth I definitely struggled with how much this book went back and forth LikeI wanted to strangle Joanna I realize that some things can only be understood when you do butI just felt like she wanted misery as company Don’t get me wrong I have been there before I never moved to another state to accompany misery There were some points of this book that was relatable That’s why it got three stars There just wasn’t enough character development for me and there wasn’t enough of a climax to make me say that this book is five stars It’s ok Not a book I will read again

    Funny easy read The protagonist was the epitome of a “disaster lesbian” making bad decisions at every turn Made for a very entertaining read

  7. Joy Joy says:

    I wanted to like this book with it's Washington DC setting and ueer characters However I found the description of the characters to be shallow and disliked the stream of consciousness journal writing style
