Orca calls these Rapid Reads and they are that, even on audio. Pleasant listening.

    For a rollicking good time, hook up with Melodie Campbell What fun! This zippy book is a great palette-cleanser after slogging through the latest Nobel Prize winner or enduring another rough day at the office! Guaranteed to entertain and simply written for those for whom English is not their first language, too. I am sure many of you will recognize some of your own worst dates in this frolic! Enjoy! I know you will.

    Internet dating is the current big thing to have an unmarried character delve into whether on tv, in movies or novels. Due to the prevalence of internet dating, any book (novella in this case) using it as a major plot point really needs to strive to be unique. Worst Date Ever unfortunately hasn’t done much to be unique except for perhaps the last date. Now, if the last date had actually been the second date and Jennie had several dates with him, perhaps this novella could have risen above average Internet dating is the current big thing to have an unmarried character delve into whether on tv, in movies or novels.

    This was a fun, fast read. The story idea was amusing and I laughed aloud on several occasions. I would have loved to see more detail given to the disastrous dates. The conclusion was predictable, but I wanted Jenny and Dave to end up together, so the end did not bother me in the slightest. (rounded up from 3.5 stars)

    I honestly don't know why I picked up this book, as it's not the kind of thing I would usually read. But I was browsing the new fiction section of the library, and it promised to be "hilarious," seemed like a short, escapist read, and I was in need of some escapism. Unfortunately, it was too trite to be funny. The book could have been good, had the characters been more than shells, the story less predictable (the "surprise" outcome is obvious by page 6), and the events more than, essentially, a I honestly don't know why I picked up this book, as it's not the kind of thing I would usually read.

It was short; I will give it that, and only took me about an hour or so to read, which ultimately is why I didn't give up. I can see how this would appeal to some readers, but if you are looking for something more than a quick distraction, you are better off looking elsewhere.

    As romances go, this one is a bit more of a comedy of errors but that's one of the things that make is so appealing. It has that classic combination of wit and sentiment that makes a great romantic comedy.

    Melodie Campbell is hilarious and her characters are like your favorite girlfriends. In WORST DATE EVER, Jennie is ready to start dating again--or maybe not. She's brave and feisty and honest and funny. She doesn't deserve the kinds of loser guys she meets online and arranges to have coffee with at the local cafe. Sound like your single friends? I'm giving my copy of WORST DATE EVER to a friend who is considering the online route to love.

    Melodie Campbell does it again! A funny yet thoughtful look at the world of online dating through the eyes of Jennie, a single mom dipping her toes into that murky pool for the first time. While there may be a prince lurking in those muddy depths, she has to wade through a lot of frogs along the way with often hilarious results. A fast-paced and satisfying read you won't be able to put down until the last page is turned. Melodie Campbell does it again!

    Worst Date Ever is one of the best of this genre. Like all Campbell's novels, the dialogue is the driving force. This tale is funny, but Campbell finds the sad notes, the desperate moves, and the gentle poignancy when 2 people realize that what they wanted was right in front of them. Finding a complete story like this in novella form is rare. When I read it a second time, I found myself replacing characters in the book with people I knew. This rapid read is more than a good read.

    This book was only just over a hundred pages, so it was easy to crush in a couple hours. The story is about a lady going on a bunch of dates; devoting two whole weeks to dating almost every day, finding her studs on the internet. This had hilarious mishaps and I was entertained by her commentary on it all. The book was predictable in the end, but I don't think that took away from the rest of the journey. Just a fun, light read. This book was only just over a hundred pages, so it was easy to crush in a couple hours.

    Easy, fun read that pulls on some heart strings and also makes you laugh! This book follows Jennie, a 30-something widow, as she tests the waters of online dating. Anyone who has tried online dating should be able to relate. The book is not a typical romance with x-rated scenes. Instead it is sweet and fun with a feel good ending.

    Cute little book, but I'm not sure if it will attract the attention of my young adult readers as the main character is a middle aged widow with a 12 year old son. The premise of the story, with her trying to get back into the dating scene through a dating website was good and current. The dates were amusing too. The ending was predictable but cute. Overall, a fast cute read. Cute little book, but I'm not sure if it will attract the attention of my young adult readers as the main character is a middle aged widow with a 12 year old son.

    The book was fun, but I was disappointed when there started to be some crude language added about half way through. The ending was predictable, but I still enjoyed the read. The Rapid Reads format made it easy to read the entire book in one sitting even as a slow reader. I did notice a continuity error or two as I ran through, but I liked the concept of the story overall.

    Such a fast and fun read! This book was very entertaining and only took me a couple days to finish. Worst Date Ever is about a widowed mom who signs up for E-Galaxy dating and goes on many terrible coffee dates over a two week period. Would highly recommend this if your looking for a fun pick me up :)

    Written in such a simplistic style I was vaguely insulted; it's marketed as an adult book not a children's book. But I assure you, it's like Reading For Beginners, Level 1. We're not even talking about reading *romance* for beginners... just *reading a story*, period.

    Saw this on display at the library and couldn’t resist grabbing it. I’m glad I did too, because this comical short novel was a fun little palette cleanser. If you’re looking for something light and quick it will fit the bill.

    The writing style wasn't particularly good. The story had some potential just from the sheer preposterousness of each date the heroine goes on. It just always seemed to fall flat of being truly entertaining. The writing style wasn't particularly good.

    We don't live in Idaho, but I read this today, start to finish, in the Marshall Public Library in Pocatello while my husband got caught up on business tasks on his iPad. Easy read and some fiction, some nonfiction.

    Nice quick read. Had all the usual elements of a romance comedy. Kind of wished it had of been longer!

    A quick read but I didn’t find it as funny as some of the other reviewers. Maybe because I’ve also been on tons of bad dates and it made me feel a bit bummed out.

    This book was laugh out loud funny. I loved reading it. It is really short and the prose are very simple. I would recommend this book to just about any one.

    I think some people should stick where their expertise lies. This author has many awards, but I found this book shallow and predictable. It was good it was short, or I would gave abandoned it.

    Your typical chick lit with predictable ending but an easy little listen.
