The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I don't get it.. I really do not understand why this book is getting so much hype. It has been recommended to my so many times and I'm gonna be honest with y'all. I did not enjoy it and I don't understand what is so fantastic about it.
I get that Monty was suppose to be funny.. and at times he was. But 98% of the time he annoyed the hell out of me. He was quite frankly a douchebag. He is completely in love with his best friend but instead of being a man and telling his friend, he decides it's best if he sleeps with tons of other guys and girls and then go and tell the man he's in love with all about his conquests. No. He is a jerk to his sister because she reads. He is selfish and ungrateful and kind of a whore. Percy(which is the best friend he is in love with) is kind of an idiot for sticking around with Monty.. I don't see the appeal. Monty got everyone in these crazy situations because he is only concerned about himself. He never thinks of anyone else.
I am honestly trying to understand why everyone loved this so much but the whole book I wanted to punch Monty right in his face. I understand that he grows up.. a little bit.. by the end of the book. But honestly it wasn't that big of a change.
I am giving this book 2 stars because it was funny at times.. But I really didn't like the story and I really hated Monty. To each their own.
