HASH(0x8b170f6c) out of 5 stars Best Chick Lit 11 July 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
While I love reading "single thirtysomething women in the big city books" the genre has been SO overdone.
As a result you get books that are trying to hard to be witty ( most recently, Bergdorf Blondes) or poorly written (most recently, Bergdorf Blondes).
Big Love is a refreshing change - the writing is smooth and seamless, the story is engaging (unlike The Devil Wears Prada), and it is laugh out loud funny.

HASH(0x8af381b0) out of 5 stars Wonderful read 18 Aug. 2004
By C. E. - Published on
Format: Hardcover
From the first chapter, this book has you curious about this just dumped, former fundamentalist Christian woman who has only slept with two men in her life - one of them gay. Talk about a multi-faceted character. I'm not usually a big fan of lots of exposition, and this book has more exposition than dialog, lots more, but it works.

HASH(0x8af3abd0) out of 5 stars She had me at mustard 19 Aug. 2004
By Lizbeth - Published on
Format: Hardcover
While the premise is great, a woman's boyfriend leaves a dinner party to get mustard and never returns, what really got me was the main character. She's a little weird, a little normal, and a lot appealing. Every page seemed to peel back another layer to her quirkiness and while sometimes I thought she was more than a little odd, and almost unlikeable, she still kept my attention. One of the best books I've read in a while.

HASH(0x8add8078) out of 5 stars Very Entertaining 22 Dec. 2006
By Bonnie Lass - Published on
Format: Paperback
A quick, enjoyable, yet deep read. Ms. Dunn can really move a story forward and manages to tackle some deep internal issues through her protagonist. Anyone who grew up Evangelical and is left feeling somewhat weird after that experience will find a kindred spirit here, and those who did not will gain some insights in a very enjoyable way. I laughed out loud, cringed inwardly, shook my head, felt triumphantly understood, and even cried at times. This woman has a gift for expressing what is so difficult to express and making her reader delight in it.

HASH(0x8a421444) out of 5 stars I thought it was great 27 May 2009
By Dio_K - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was surprised to see the negative reviews for this book. I actually laughed out loud a number of times when I read it. I really liked the main char, Allison. I thought she was refreshing. I liked her evangelical Christian background and the contradictions/justifications it created in her life. Yes, she's neurotic like most chick lit characters, but I am too. I found it to be a smart, funny read.
