3.0 out of 5 stars light relief, 31 July 2003
This review is from: A Friend of the Family (Paperback)
I found this book a lighthearted easy read, and enjoyed a few laugh out loud moments which is always a good sign.
I find that Lisa Jewell mangages to be predictable in just the right way. You kind of know that everything will turn out right, but you don't know the journey that will take you there.
The dialogue between characters is what sets this novel apart from other chick-lit pretenders. It's also what makes it for men as well as women. There is also an almost embarrassing commitment to honesty, or the lack of it, which makes it incredibly easy to connect to the characters and believe in their situations.
The only weird bit is the pervasive influence of Gervase.. I must admit I'm not convinced by him or his presence. I think the use of his special talents as an instrument of influence with the boys is about as subtle as the ghost of Christmas Past. But other than that, another winner from LJ.
