    I found this book in a thrift store recently and I thought it would be a fun read And it was And that s about all I didn t really click with any of the characters, except maybe Benji, the protagonist s gay brother, and Francis, his lover They were stereotypically sweet and fussy, but at least they were engaging The rest of the cast felt enough over the top to belike caricatures instead of characters Also, her math kept driving me crazy The protagonist kept referring to a fifteen y I found this book in a thrift store recently and I thought it would be a fun read And it was And that s about all I didn t really click with any of the characters, except maybe Benji, the protagonist s gay brother, and Francis, his lover They were stereotypically sweet and fussy, but at least they were engaging The rest of the cast felt enough over the top to belike caricatures instead of characters Also, her math kept driving me crazy The protagonist kept referring to a fifteen year gap between being jilted and the present But she waited a year before marrying, and had been married fifteen years Also the son, who is fifteen, was born a year after the marriage So the gap should have been sixteen to seventeen years For the most part this disparity was just annoying, but there is a crucial part of the stories that refers to fourteen years as being shortly after the jilting It s cracks like that that make this a fun, but not altogether satisfying read

    Although I loathe the term chick lit, this is a classic example of it I have read a number of Alliott s books over the years, and at the beginning I found them to be very funny This will be the last one I read, though it was a gift from my mother in law and sat on my bookcase for years This story was predictable and stereotypical.According to Catherine Alliott and many authors in this genre , women are most likely to be secretaries, journalists, or in public relations The goal in life is Although I loathe the term chick lit, this is a classic example of it I have read a number of Alliott s books over the years, and at the beginning I found them to be very funny This will be the last one I read, though it was a gift from my mother in law and sat on my bookcase for years This story was predictable and stereotypical.According to Catherine Alliott and many authors in this genre , women are most likely to be secretaries, journalists, or in public relations The goal in life is to marry a well off, successful man and move to a huge, lavishly decoratedhouse in the country, and have a couple of children.Then once the woman or GIRL, as they say in England, even when the woman is in her 30s or 40s achieves said goal, she becomes dissatisfied with her lot and takes her luck for granted.In this case, the protagonist Henny is persuaded to go back to work in London, after 15 years of looking down her nose at other women who work outside of the home Her children, incidentally, appear to be spoiled and lazy.Inevitably, misunderstandings and jumping to conclusions ensue Rash stereotypes are thrown about such as women in the workplace are all seductive nymphs, and her husband has to fight them off all day long Perhaps things are different in British workplaces, or in advertising, but my office is not a hotbed of sexual tension Throw in the obligatory fox hunt and private schools while you re at it.Of course, there is always a happy ending I did read the whole thing, because I wanted to learn how it turned out, but it was a bit of a chore

    Every so often I try some Women s Fiction or Chick Lit or whatever this is called, but I m still not falling for it.This was kind of ok, it just kind of rambled on, largely unlikeable people being largely disingenuous and or making wild assumptions about each other, and lots of stupid situations that could have been settled with a straight up conversation Seems to me, chick lit is code for Romance where there s no guarantee of a HEA , which kind of defeats the escapist point of romance at Every so often I try some Women s Fiction or Chick Lit or whatever this is called, but I m still not falling for it.This was kind of ok, it just kind of rambled on, largely unlikeable people being largely disingenuous and or making wild assumptions about each other, and lots of stupid situations that could have been settled with a straight up conversation Seems to me, chick lit is code for Romance where there s no guarantee of a HEA , which kind of defeats the escapist point of romance at all.Oh well, just because I don t get it, doesn t mean you won t Consider this review a warning to myself to stop trying to read this kind of stuff
