2.0 out of 5 stars Typical of Jane Green, 11 Nov 2005
This review is from: Life Swap (Hardcover)
Having read all of Jane Green's books over the years - Life Swap is what I consider to be her 'new' style. I am a firm believer that Babyville was the last good read from Jane Green. Life Swap, like spellbound was boring, predictable, the usual 'grass is always greener' humdrum from the author. Why she's writing about Highfield, Conneticut (like last time) when her books are mainly appealing to English readers, god only knows - I can only assume it's because she has a house there and doesn't get out of it much.
There are some nice moments in the book but it all seems too false - Vicky being a bit scatty and Amber being the all american perfect is typical of Jane Green's getting less creative by the minute style. And I find her tone of: story telling at the beginning and end (this is a story about.....) thoroughly patronising for the mid twenties reader. Bring back the Babyville era.
