If you don't enjoy slow burns, don't read this. Personally I feel like this was more a book about friendship than about love.

    Kurzmeinung: If you don't enjoy slow burns, don't read this. Personally I feel like this was more a book about friendship than about love.
    Mariana Zapata - Queen of the Slow Burn Romances


    OK, first things first. every time Kulti called her "Schnecke" I cringed. Because that's not really a term of endearment in Germany. There are, as far as I can remember, only two types of guys that would call someone "Schnecke". Type one: a friend teasing you, in the way that guys tease their female friends with weird nicknames (mostly while drunk - another one of those would be Torte, which means cake). It is however not meant in a serious way and it is not used adoringly. It's a joke about the 2nd group of guys. Those being weirdos in a bar that think women are beneath them, or men looking for a quick hook-up who don't really respect women. Only douchbags use "Schnecke". It's degrading - justthink about what snails are? They are small, slimy creatures that nobody wants in their garden and that destroy all the plants. So yeah.. if someone called me Schnecke, apart from said male friends that use it as a joke to make fun of creepy guys, you know the type, I'd look at them and walk away feeling weirded-out and would probably look slightly disgusted as well - like wtf. So yeah, I cringed whenever I heard that. 

    Otherwise, Mariana Zapata remains to be the queen of slow burns. However, I get why everyone complained that "The Wall of Winnipeg and Me" (which I read first) was exactly the same as this. It is. But that was fine with me. the only thing that bugs me about both books is that the guy remains silent for most of the book and we don't really get to know them. I just wished Kulti would at least talk to her somewhat. I don't think it's okay to forgive someone that easily if that person continues to treat you like crap over and over again. It's not okay. he's a dick, okay. At least give the heroin some more backbone and let her be angry and not be soothed immediately by his (slightly) apologetic behaviour (if that even happens and the whole thing isn't just brushed aside because it was due to miscommunication - well duh, the guy doesn't talk. At all.). 
    Apart from that I did enjoy the story quite a lot. it was funny and light hearted and I did like Sal, she's a great character. she does speak her mind a lot I just wished she would stand up for herself and against Kulti a bit more often. However, I don't think this really reads as a romance. To me it felt more like a book about friendship that turned into love. But maybe that's just me.
