And the Award Goes to the Female Villian
Although Jimmy was the protagonist in this delightful story, his characterization was largely shaped by the women he encountered. He was unlikable in the beginning but I warmed up to him very quickly in consideration of the kind of person the antagonist turned out to be. I kept cheering him on. He was very flawed but had great developments in a concise way.

The dialogue was amusing, especially the interaction between Gabby & Jimmy, and that was the turnaround point for me. As satisfying as it was to see Jimmy crumble, at that point you want him to succeed. Accurately categorized as well because the story definitely had the right amount of humour and irony.
