Book Description

1999

Meet Jack

Jack Rossiter. I'm twenty-seven years old, single, and live with my best mate Matt. Matt and I started hanging out when we were eight. Life was simpler then. Our idea of fashion was polyester. I told him I wanted to be a spy and he asked me who I'd marry. I imagined falling in love with a girl so perfect I couldn't even guess her name. Things have changed since then. I did fall in love for a while but it didn't work out. And single is good, single is fun.

Meet Amy

Sometimes in my darker moments I've thought about applying to go on Blind Date. 'She's gorgeous, she's from London, come in Amy Crosbie!' (Wolf whistling and applause.) Actually it's a bit of a worry. I think it's my warped way of telling myself something's got to change. It's been six months since I last had sex. Six months! I mean, I've got my own flat, I've got A levels - so come on down Mr Right. At least it would get my mother off my back.

Now find out what happens when they meet each other ...

Product Description

Amazon Review

Amy, a worn-out twenty-something on a B-road to nowhere, sitting at a set of traffic lights at Sex Corner that have been stuck on red for six months, and merrily kidding herself that the slowest route with the greatest number of hurdles will eventually make her happy, meets Jack.

Also single, Jack lives his life as if on the outside lane of a motorway driving a Porsche, living fast and playing hard, occasionally taking a slip road to Shag Town where he can be guaranteed a different woman at every exit, zooming off into the sunset as soon as he has finished and neatly avoiding commitment as he puts his foot to the floor and accelerates to the next junction.

A witty, shrewd and ultimately highly entertaining novel, Come Together takes a new route over traditional terrain, seeping into the psyche of one man and one woman as they take their first tentative steps towards coupledom. As Lloyd and Rees deftly switch from his point of view to hers, the reader eavesdrops on two different takes of the same situation, highlighting those all important differences between the complicated mating rituals of the male and female of the species.

Guaranteed to cause arguments over a pint, this light, enjoyable novel adds a new twist to the Bridget Jones phenomena, taking the "woman in search of a meaningful relationship" one step further, in a refreshingly different take on a familiar theme. --Susan Harrison

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant....wonderful....jus EXCELLENT 1 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I have to say that this has to be the book that has got me back into reading. It has to be the best book i have read so far and has made Josie Lloyd and Emlyn Rees my favoraite authors. I have to thank the person who told me about this book, if not i would be missing out on the laughters and smiles. This book is funny and so is all the other titles written by Josie & Emlyn. Start reading and you just will not want to put it down and its not just Come Again, but all the other books they have written!

5.0 out of 5 stars fantasic for the tube 19 July 2002
Format:Paperback
Having recently reinstated my appetite for reading and racing through books like they are going out of fashion; I was ever so pleased when my neighbour passed this book to me to read and review. (partly as I didn't have to pay for it).
I am so glad that I did, it was brilliant, I became so involved, I didn't want it to end. The best thing was finding myself laughing on an otherwise dull tube, I did get some very odd looks (I mean laughing in a public place!). It is a book I would recommend to anyone and everyone, an investment that you could read many times over. (So I need to now get my own copy)
I love it when you don't want to put a book down for fear of missing something (okay I know that you wouldn't actually miss anything), but it's as though you should be part of the story, willing things to happen.
I have read some good books recently but this is definately at the top, rating highly in every category you could think of.
If people do not like this book I would be very surprised, it is a good synopsis of life today if you're in your twenties/thirties.
BUY IT!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best 14 Jan 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I bought this book by "accident" i had nothing to read and i saw this book in a little shop. I was in a hurry and i didn't have too much time to read on the back of it.............I think I just read the first 2 lines and then bought it and i really did the best buy ever. It's the best book I have ever read and when i finished i just wanted to know what happend to Amy and Jack. Then one day i discover that theres another one about them so if u have to remember to also buy come again :o)

4.0 out of 5 stars Light hearted relief from a bad day 1 Aug 2002
Format:Paperback
I was off work ill today so I read this book (which was free with a magazine). It was quite a fun story, engaging enough to make me feel better but trashy enough to read in a day and instantly forget it ever existed: it's not exactly of life changing standard, but it is fun.
Come Together is co-written by a man and a woman and it tells two sides of a relationsip, alternate chapters reveal amy and jack's feelings. I'd be interested to know whther the authors each wrote one of the character's thoughs as the 'Amy' chapters are written very differently to the 'Jack' pages. This may be by design to distinguish between the characters' attributes, or it may just reflect Josie Lloyd and Emlyn Rees' different writing styles.
This was light hearted relief from a bad day; though I doubt I'll remember having read it in six weeks time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for holidays! 2 Jun 2006
Format:Paperback
I dont usually read chick-lit. But this one is just too good to pass up. Bridget Jones move over! My copy is absolutely trashed, because of all the times I have read it. It is hillarious, romantic, but romantic in a way where the feet are still planted firmly on ground. I think the fact that there are one female and one male author gives it depth that other soppy books just dont have. Even so, it is most definatly for women. Light hearted fun! Great stuff...

Format:Paperback
The first Josie Lloyd & Emlyn Rees I read was `We are Family', which I thought was amazing, so I immediately ordered `Come Together' and `Come Again' and read them back-to-back, hoping for more of the same.

However, these are nothing like `We are Family', primarily because these are essentially romantic novels, albeit with more interesting characters, but also because there was none of the "darkness" that made `We are Family' such a stunning read.

That's not to say that these are not enjoyable reads (`Come Together' more so, in my opinion) just in a very different vein.

`Come together' is funny, tender and very `real', maintaining the fine balance between being romantic and being soppy without ever becoming unrealistic. Furthermore, and unusually for a romantic novel, it has characters you can both relate to and care about.

`Come Again' is a sort of follow-on to `Come Together' in that it features many of the same characters, but they seem much more hastily put together, with far less depth to each in this one, so that I found it hard to become attached to any of them... in fact, they were only just likeable. Its saving grace is that, for a novel of its genre, it is definitely not predictable, and it made me smile on quite a few occasions.

5.0 out of 5 stars No words would do this book justice 22 Jan 2004
Format:Paperback
I may only be 15 years old and no nothing about anything but i do know how fabulous this book is. I live in America and my whole family went on a trip to Wales where we stayed at a placed called Brynkinalt(spelled wrong probably). I bought B magazine with Reese Witherspoon on the cover and this book came free along with a sample of the sequel Come Again. I was reading the Steven King novel; The Talisman, then so i didnt read this book for quite a while after being purchased. But when i started i couldnt stop. I laughed and cried and even screamed. I have read dozens of similarly categorized books since then and not one has even come close to being as absolutely marvelous as this book. I recommend this book to anyone in need of a pick me up or in need of a literate treat. I have read this book so many times I am debating purchasing a new copy because my current copy is so tatty. Read this book. After reading my review i cant stress enough how much regret you will feel if you pass on this once in a lifetime gem.
