I don't usualy bother writing reviews but I've just finished reading the Mile High Guy and felt I had to say how much I throughly enjoyed this book. This novel was so much FUN to read! The story line zips along nicely. The main charachter, Katie is an adorable but slightly ditzy air-hostess who divulges her iner-most thoughts to the reader in a pacy, bubbling steam of internal monologue. The story is told from the first person and is so refreshingly real and funny. Some of the things Katie comes of with ring so true, and through out the novel I kept thinking to myself 'thats just the kind of thing that I would do or think!'
A hopeless romantic Katie gets swept away by the glamour and romance of a date with a famous first class passanger. Her discriptions of the passangers and other crew members are an absolute hoot and Katie's vivid imagination conjures up all sorts of ellaborate would be sinarios which had me in stiches. I've never read one of Marisa Mackle's novels before and I came accross the Mile High Guy purely by accident and though the title sounded like fun- and it certainly was! it's a fast, comic story with a twist. The writers style reminded me of Sophie Kinsilla's 'Can you Keep a Secret', a book which I also loved. So if your a fan of Kinsilla's Shopaholic seres this is definitly your kind of book. I for one will be checking out this authors other titles for some holiday reading material!

This is the second book I have read from this author. I bought this after enjoying Mr Right for the Night and while I definitely enjoyed this, I think I preferred Mr Right for the night. Parts of this book were great- particularly the glimpses into the highs and lows of life as an air stewardess and the conversational tone which makes you feel like you're chatting with a friend over coffee, but all in all it just wasn't quite as good as the other book I've read by this author. I would certainly recommend this to people looking for a light hearted holiday read, but I would also suggest you look at Marisa Mackle's other work too. After reading two books by this author, I do have to say though that she seems to suddenly rush towards an ending each time, which is a shame. In both books I've read they have been progressing nicely and I've been really enjoying them and then suddenly they are quickly wrapped up and rushed into the ending you knew was coming all along. This is a bit of a shame and spoils the enjoyment slightly, but I still really like this author and intend to buy more from her because I love the plots and characters she creates, even if her execution isn't always perfect.

Mile High Guy (Irish Romantic Comedy)

This novel was a lot of fun...light hearted and a good laugh. Katie the main character is a rather ditzy and giddy flight attendant in search of her knight in shining armour. She is a hopeless romantic in a very sweet way - some of the comments made by the main character as this story rolls on, are so typical and funny I found myself agreeing and nodding my head, while laughing out loud (much to the strange looks from the rest of the household!).
The Irish humour shines through in the book and is delightful. A feel good story laced with lots of fun.
Katie falls for one of her first class passengers, but is he really the one for her?
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who likes a light read that gives a lot of laughs and giggles as well.
Delightful. I have always enjoyed Marisa's books as they are true to life and down to earth. Most of us can relate to them in some way.

Katie is air hostess working of an Irish airlines,not that she wants to it for the rest of her life, what Katie wants to is write After long flight she finds herself getting the phone number of Adam Kirrane one of the hotest actors today. Adam is intersted in Katie but first she will have dump her current boyfriend Tim. And also dealing drama from her fellow hostesses and long the way she may discover that she doesn't need Adam and her true love may be closer than she thinks.
"The Mile High Guy" is the first book that I read by Marisa Mackle and it was really good. The writer gave her main character a great voice and it was like she was telling the reader the story of her life over a cup of coffee. While it's not long book "A Mile High Guy" is a great beach time read.

I suppose some would refer to Mile High Guy as chick-lit or something. I would refer to it as a very very good read, fast paced, totally believable, highly amusing and written in a style which only an accomplished author can get away with. Being a former Boeing jockey, I can vouch for the accuracy of the content and, like JT O'Neill, I would have loved to have had Marisa on my crew. Excellent! Buy it.

Fantastic light read, very funny, being an ex cabin crew member can relate to the goings on when working. It is light reading and funny, did not take long to read on the Kindle - Good holiday read

There are no words. Frankly I am genuinely amazed as to how this "book" has received such rave reviews. The one good thing is that having to endure it has perhaps made me finally make the connection between cheap Kindle books and their literary merit. I was not expecting anything representing literary brilliance, this promotes itself as chick-lit after all, but I was at least expecting something humorous or entertaining. The protagonist Katie has, I am assuming, an exceptionally low IQ. She is dim-witted, self-obsessed, thoroughly not at all likebable and paints Irish women in a terribly bad light. The book is badly written, disjointed, has absolutely no substance and is one long exhausting ramble. How this ever got published is beyond me - invariably one of the worst books I've ever read. Please don't waste 77p on it - in fact even if it is offered as a freebie don't waste four or five hours of your life that you won't ever get back. An abomination!
