It Ended Badly: Thirteen of the Worst Breakups in History by Jennifer Wright
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Happy pre-Valentine's day!
To celebrate, we read ... THIS! :)
It's perfect fodder for all you peeps out there who want examples of relationships that turned out so much worse than your own.
I'd LIKE to say that it perfectly captures the true spirit of human stupidity and obsession, too, but it's 2022 and that's a total hold my beer moment that makes just about everything else pale in comparison.
Nero's burning Rome over a dead lover? I suspect the California wildfires were set to Lady Gaga's Bad Romance. Don't you wonder what THAT story was all about?
Lord Byron's romance read like Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Trump might have been inspired by Norman Mailer. And the others are just as fun/wicked/ugly.
Definitely worth the read. You know, to make yourself feel better. :)
