Average but Addictive!
on 10 June 2014
Honestly, this is nothing more than your typical "chick lit" novel. These kinds of novels are a guiltless pleasure for me (yes, I meant guiltless) and after reading Milly Johnson's "Birds and the Bees", I wanted to try another one of hers. Let me get this straight out there - this was a very average book. However, it was strangely addictive and I could not wait to get back to it at every chance I had.
The characters therein are nothing more than the worst possible caricatures - Disney style - of good and evil. You have the complete misogynist that must, by law, be present in every chick lit novel. You have the beleaguered and put upon, often cuckolded wife, the hero waiting to sweep her off her feet, the awesome best friend....you get the picture.
Again, I say, this was a sweet and addictive novel. Even when it had me rolling my eyes at how stereotypical all the characters were, I read on. I enjoyed it but I did not find it half as funny as I did "Birds and the Bees". I would take a big rest between this and a third of Milly's novels because they really do run in the same vein. However, if you are looking for a good escape and to lose yourself in the ideas and ideals of chick lit. pick this one up. It's cheap and cheerful and very, very readable.
