5.0 out of 5 stars Chick lit with depth - read it
I have now read all of GWJ's books and have been utterly impressed by every single one. I had never heard of her before I spotted one in my local market town shop and bought it on impulse.

This was an Ok read. There is something about the writing that I find a little laboured but the plot was quite well constructed if a little predictable. A beach read.

This review is from: Ready or Not (Paperback)
I have now read all of GWJ's books and have been utterly impressed by every single one. I had never heard of her before I spotted one in my local market town shop and bought it on impulse. As with all chick lit (and all genres, let's face it) there is always a formula somewhere but she writes with such feeling and insight that these are way over and above others of the same type. Certain elements crop up in all her books (windsurfing, budgies, biscuits and hands being just a few) but they flow beautifully, the settings are eloquent and the characters richly realised. Relationships are explored with genuine depth and humour and even if you're not a fan of love winning out in the end you really wish you were. Most chick lit I can skim read, laugh out loud sometimes, know the ending and pass it on to someone else. Not these. These will remain on my book shelf and I will send them to others as newly purchased presents. Beautiful and more please.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing as a cool drink on a summer's day, 29 Jan 2008
This review is from: Ready or Not (Paperback)
This is another wonderfully satisfying novel. In a neat reversal of the run-of-the-mill boy meets girl fodder, Caddy has already met the love of her life - and is busily pretending that she hasn't. But instead of wanting to yell 'he's behind you!' the reader sympathises with Caddy's reservations, and is comically diverted by the antics of her friends. Why isn't this lovely writer better known! Give it to all your friend; they'll thank you.

Really enjoyed the story. Was both funny and touching. Loved the style of writing. The characters intertwined really well. Suitable for all as no swearing and sex scenes that would not embarrass your gran. Only 3 stars as felt a little too lengthy in the run up to finale. Felt as though a couple of chapters were unnecessary. But overall a great story and have purchased another by same author on the strength of it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring.., 11 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ready or Not? (Kindle Edition)
Gave this a go, it tries hard to be witty but fails badly. I gave up after about 20 pages. There is also a lack of fluency that makes it irritating to read, actually the whole text is irritating. The writing is not coming from the soul but attempts a formulaic structure and therefore lacks authenticity. Plot

3.0 out of 5 stars Ready or not? .....on balance, 'Not', 18 Nov 2014

This review is from: Ready or Not? (Kindle Edition)
Not really for me. I did stick with it, and enjoyed the characterisations, but I did keep asking myself why I was bothering finding out what became of them. For me it was a bit rambling and disjointed, with very predictable conclusions. But for all that it's a harmless enough read.
