Product Description

Amazon Review

Josie Lloyd and Emlyn Rees hit upon a winning formula with their first joint novel Come Together, billed as a unique opportunity to view a heterosexual couple's relationship from both sides. Now they consummate this success in this sequel, Come Again, a tale of four troubled twentysomethings: two trapped by success, two by failure.

Amy and Jack's relationship comes to a head when they decide to get married. They take a back seat as four of their friends plan their wedding for them, whilst in turn attempt to build relationships of their own. Helen, or H as her friends call her, has such a happening job that she has no time for anything else. Matt has the same problem, so perhaps the two should get together... Former coke-snorter Stringer has moved back in with his mum while he sorts his head out. And saucy Susie cannot keep her legs shut.

Fans of Lloyd and Rees will gain satisfaction from this re-entry into Amy and Jack's sassy shenanigans. If you like Friends and Four Weddings and a Funeral, this will hit the right spot. --Daren King. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

"Come together" was a fine book. Two well-defined, if slightly unpolished, characters coming together to form a genuinely touching romance. Yes, it was rather stereotypical but here we have the sequel; and it jumps straight into the gaps that its predecessor left.
Granted, again, the characters are all made out to be great looking, sexy, blah blah blah - rather too cliched (where is the fat mate, lol!?). That said, it's the only downfall in an otherwise exquisitely written, delightfully told story, and the ending is far more rounded than last time out. Laugh at the calamities of Stringer, swear at the utter complete bitchiness of H, but most importantly, buy it, read it, and enjoy. You'll be gutted when the last page has gone tho'.... that's how addicted reading about these characters has become. Roll on number 3...

I've just spent the last eight hours reading this book - once I started reading it I couldn't put it down as I was always anticipating what was going to happen next! This is a funny and heartwarming book and Lloyd and Rees come out on top again! I felt like I actually knew the characters and was there with them! You'll enjoy reading about bitchy H and Susie the Floozy, and your heart will go out to Matt and Stringer - what cuties! All I can say is what a brilliant book! I've read all three of Lloyd and Rees jointly written books and I haven't been disappointed yet! I can't wait for the next one - hurry up and get writing Josie and Emlyn!!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
'Come Together' one of the hit books of last year has spawned a sequel in what appears to almost record time. For unitiated amongst you, 'Come Together' presented a love story from the differing perspectives of the two central characters. This time around though that approach was obviously too '99 to be considered and so this year we have two stories from the perspectives of four central characters. The histories and lifestyles of the characters is enough to make 'Friends' seem believable, with all of them appearing to live in some sort of imaginary Cool Britannia.
Where the first book was unusal, this time around it's just hackneyed. As the absurd plot progresses, just remember that a tree died for this

Format: Paperback
Come Together was a reasonable read with some interesting situations and a real narrative drive. The characters were a bit too trendy but it hung together.
Come Again reads like an early draft, thrown together to slip stream the success of the original. Sadly, the extension of the concept from two 'voices' to four doesn't work - it drastically dilutes the story and reduces the power of the key scenes.
'Matt' and 'H' are readable characters but Susie and Stringer are dire - if real people exist like that they shouldn't be allowed to vote!
The set up is fairly good, with the anticipation of big things between H and Matt. Doesn't really deliver, though.

I was given Come Together for my birthday and read it in a day. When I heard there was a sequel to it, I wanted to read it as soon as possible, so I went for a hunt, picked it up, and I had finished it within 24 hours. The talents of both Emlyn Rees and Josie Lloyd compliment each other in this book of human life. You find yourself relating personally to each of the characters that they have developed.. and wishing that maybe you could meet them so you can point out to each one what the others are thinking. It a unique way to tell a story, and I feel that it works amazingly well. I would strongly recommend it.

What happenend? Did someone do a "misery" on Josie and Emlyn? Were they tied together and told to write the 2nd most unbeleivable follow-up in the history of Literature (the first obviously being Bridget Jones! ). Well if they were, well done.
I read Come Together last year, and although tiring of the genre, I looked forward to the sequel. Bad idea. And these are the reasons why:
1. Unconvincing John Cleese "Clockwise" style plot. 2. Unconvincing, overdone, stereotypical characters. ( H would drive a Buddhist to violence) 3. Everything else...

I loved COME TOGETHER and this sequel more than lives up to it. It's about 4 of Amy and Jack's mates who are all different, but who are all very recognisable. I've lived in London now for three years and this book has the people and their behaviour down to a 'T'. Like CT, there are some very funny moments here, but where this book beats CT is that not everything is a happy ending . Some of the characters telling their stories win and some lose - a bit like life. Buy it. Read it. Love it. I did all three.
