5.0 out of 5 stars Total Relationships Disaster 21 Dec 2002
Another man, another haircut. It's funny how we always do the same things, every single time, when we break up with people. I'm not stupid, I know there's a pattern. I only have to look at my photo albums..'
This is a fabulous book about the common story of a girl who becomes single again. Jessica Adams has put a clever touch to the story which leaves you comforted by the idea that you're not the only one and there's someone who seems to be handling it much worse.
Thirtyish Victoria 'Total Relationships Disaster' Shepworth has been dumped by Dan and tries to cope with singlehood. She gets a computer from her father and with a little (read: a lot of) help from her upstairs neighbour manages to log on to the Internet, where a whole new world unfolds itself. She meets Pierre in a chatroom and discovers a new meaning to flirting. Meanwhile her two lesbian friends try to let her give up men and join their Woman Circle. Will Victoria be tempted and lose the fantasy of a dream wedding? Pick up this book and find out!
Jessica Adams was an astrologist before she took up writing fiction, but I think she couldn't have made a better choice. Her other novels 'Tom Dick and Debbie Harry' and the recently published 'I'm a Believer' are also really worth reading!

4.0 out of 5 stars Stayed up all night to read the book 4 Nov 2003
For any girl who's ever been single, this book offers empathy, humour, sarcasm, anger, insecurity, uncertainty and friendship. What the author manages in this book, isnt amazing writing skills, but quite simply you're made to feel like Victoria is a close friend. I was so engaged in the book and it's characters I started the book mid afternoon and stayed up all night until it was finished. Now when I lend it out to friends, I warn them to get a good night's sleep before they read it! An excellent read!

I took this as one of my books on holidays - mainly because I liked the catchy title and the vain hope that I would understand the 30 something female. Unlike the back which mentions the beloved Ally MacBeal, this is not what I hoped it would be.
The writing is not too bad and the little twist is quite smart but how I laboured through it I don't know. I needed a second opinion so after finishing it, gave it to a friend (also male late twenties) only to find that he was speed reading it due to the ridiculously long rants this girl goes on. And this girl does go on and on and on ...
Currently, it's in the possession of a female friend of mine (early thirties) as I need a female opinion. I await with breath held.
MEN KEEP CLEAR - IT WILL SCARE YOU. If this is the insight into the women of my age - I need to keep with the younger ones....

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, funny, couldn't put it down! 13 Nov 2001
By A Customer
If you are single and had 'total b****y relationships disasters' then this is the book for you. Hilarious recognition of the typical relationships women seem to fall into...and out of! (Are men really the same across the globe?)
The end seems to have been left open...I will be very disappointed if there isn't a sequel.

2.0 out of 5 stars But the net is speedier than this!! 23 Mar 2001
By A Customer
It started well. Then I got to the middle and started to wonder why our heroine didn't just top herself as she was sooooo depressed and considered herself sooooooo useless! Like others, I was led to believe that Victoria would be an IT Bridget Jones but was sorely disappointed. The best bits were the 'chats' between Victoria and Pierre... and her metaphor for what love really is.

4.0 out of 5 stars a bit slow but well worh it! 15 May 2000
After reading Bridget Jones Diary, I was ready for the "British Invasion". Although it does take a bit to get into the novel its worth it. The ending is terrific! I would definitly recommend it.
