Book Description

Oh no, I’ve Fallen in Love! is a dark comic retelling of the tale of Cinderella—21st century style.

Instead of two ugly sisters, Cinderella, AKA Valeria Anthrope, is tormented by two ugly fears: commitment and being ‘mad’ like her neurotic mother.

Her fairy godmother is larger-than-life Ellen Semple who boasts she can help everyone—whether they want help or not. And Prince Charming is womanising Lex Kendal. His intention is bedding Valerie and very little else.

Circumstances push this dysfunctional trio together which result in a chain of hilarious but definitely heart-breaking, sequences leading to Valerie’s eventual cure.

It’s just the journey getting there that’s the problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chick Lit With an Edge 6 Dec. 2012
By Fox
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Depression, not a subject that immediately springs to mind when it comes to romantic comedy or chick-lit. But with The Fall of the Misanthrope, Louise Wise has taken has taken this oft times misunderstood condition, and handled it with great sensitivity while at the same time providing laugh out loud humour.

The humour comes mostly in the form of the monstrous Ellen Semple, an interfering busy-body who insinuates herself into every aspect of protagonist Valerie Anthrope's life. Ms Wise writes her so well and convincingly that I disliked her almost from the moment she is introduced. And, very cleverly, her presence had me rooting for the flawed Valerie, much more than I think I would have if the self-styled fairy godmother hadn't been there.

Other light moments are provided by Valerie's employees, Tim and Paul, and the handsome Lex Kendall, who pursues Valerie despite Ellen's interference.

Over all, this is a well written and entertaining story with a clever ending that brings everything together. It has all the ingredients to make the basis for a comedy-drama series on television. Are you listening Sky TV?

4.0 out of 5 stars Black Lit. 13 Aug. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Louise wise takes a slightly darker angle into the chick lit genre, with a central character who is not only carrying a curse, but is flawed with depression.
Miss Anthrope is a hard as nails business woman, but she has no love in her life. Although she insists it is by choice, the reader knows better, and so does everyone else.
Valerie Anthrope and her problems are skillfully drawn out with a supporting cast of likeable characters in Alex, the love interest, and Ellen, the interfering but well meaning busy body who manages to involve herself in every aspect of Valerie's life.
There is some good, funny sparky dialogue, and a nice balance of light and dark throughout. Wise uses dialogue as it should be used; to bring the narrative to life.
I especially liked the clever little prologue and the way it was picked up again at the end.
Polished and accomplished.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romancing the Dark Side of Chick-Lit 23 Feb. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read Louise Wise's sci-fi romance Eden, last year and really liked her voice. I was intrigued by the title of her more recent publication, The Fall of the Misanthrope. I bitch, therefore I am, especially with its billing as a `dark chick-lit!' Misanthrope is a deeply romantic and insightful tale, which deals with difficult issues and the healing power of love. It is also very humorous and made me laugh out loud on more than one occasion!

In the novel,Valerie Anthrope (Miss Anthrope - I loved the pun) is a young woman who runs a financial brokerage. Valerie is not only serious minded and hard working but, she can also be a bit of a bitch. She lives alone and keeps herself to herself, concluding that it is best not to care for anyone. There nevertheless resides within her a deep sadness and vulnerability.

In steps Ellen Semple, a missionary worker returned from abroad, who, in true `fairy godmother' form resolves to make Valerie her next `project. Ellen senses something is not quite right with Valerie and does her best to bring light into her darkness. She secures part-time employment in Valerie's small office. Then, believing that Valerie's outlook is due to financial difficulties, she persuades her nephew Lex Kendal, a successful businessman, to put a large contract her way. When she sees that Lex is intrigued by Valerie, she warns him off her, believing that Valerie is too fragile to handle Lex's `love'em and leave `em philosophy.' Yet Lex does not take no for an answer, and Valerie falls for him. When she discovers that he is Ellen's nephew, a fact that they deliberately hid from her, she feels deceived, let down and deeply wounded. To protect herself from future hurt she dumps Lex, almost as soon as their affair has begun.
