Format: Paperback
If you're a fan of lightweight "30-ish about London" but are getting sick of "Sad Girl finds Lurve" literature, this is for you - it acheives an unusual mix, being simultanously a deliciously improbable "gang-of-mates" novel yet is often very tense and edgy: the pages will melt away with the speed of your poolside holiday cocktails. The characters are well portrayed, if in a few cases slightly over the top, but I particularly liked the scene-setting and could literally smell the crisp-yet-dusty dawn in the Maroccan desert and later the sweaty, nervous testosterone of the surging Paris crowd.
Sure to be a popular holiday read for a wide audience this summer.

It is very easy to dismiss this book as yet another ode to being 30something and wandering where the years have gone. i found it a little difficult to start but soon found it to be a slow burner in that once I had my teeth into the plot i found i wanted to keep going to find out how it all ended. OK so the plot may have been a bit far fetched at times but aren't we all looking for some esacpe from the toils and tribulations of modern life? Jaded will give you that brief escape - it has humour and intrigue in bucket loads. Baseline this book is not pretending to be anything else other than a damn good read and i always thought that this is what reading should really be about - fun!!

Although a person that thinks Saramago is a god and has Proust next on the to do list, I also have a strong desire to read chit lit and trashy magazines. My problem is that every time I read the novel which is meant to be the "next Bridget Jones," I am highly disappointed and feel wronged for having purchased it.
Not Jaded. Jaded is a fun, easy read whose characters, whilst possibly slightly over the top, are inherently likeable. It may not win the Booker, but it's far better than the vast majority of similar fiction, and I highly recommend it.

Having read the previous reviews here, I have come to the conclusion that I am missing the point of 'Jaded'. I know it is a cliche, but I actually felt jaded after trying to get through this. Admittedly, I gave up quite early on. What I did read, I found to be in the similar vein to Ben Elton and I have always struggled with those.
Just not for me.

I don't know what book the first reviewer on this list was talking about... I LOVED THIS BOOK! It's warm, witty, and I couldn't put it down. The strong plot kept me guessing until the end. The writing style is fresh and fun; the characters even more so. Ms. Hawking is a hot new talent. This is most certainly the best book to pack on those bank weekends or beach holidays. Enjoy!!
