Straight Talking
Straight Talking
by Jane Green
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars Long winded, 10 Sep 2001
This review is from: Straight Talking (Paperback)
Straight Talking is rubbish in comparison to say Bookends. It was long winded and boring, with a self obsessed, self pitying, unrealistic central character who didn't win my empathy in any way at all. If you've already read any of Green's other books DO NOT bother with this one as you will only feel let down. However, if you haven't still don't bother, read Bookends instead!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable enough but....., 10 Sep 2001
This review is from: Shopaholic Abroad (Paperback)
I thoroughly enjoyed the first novel by Kinsella but although this was fairly amusing, Shopaholic Abroad did get a little tedious during the middle section, since the formats of the two novels are fairly similar. That's not to say I wouldn't reccommend it - the book is much better than some others I have read and did pass several entertaining hours. Read it if you read the first one but don't hvae expectations that are too great!
