3.0 out of 5 stars Not one of her best.., 16 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Thirtynothing (Paperback)
Being a huge fan of the extremley talented Lisa Jewell it took me no time to pick this one up. It starts well enough, some funny jokes here and there and Lisa's usual in depth description of character sparkles the page. The problem with Thirtynothing is firstly its extemley predictable, you know whats going to happen within the the first 5 pages. This isnt normally a problem in books but the majority of Jewells books are full of surprises and you have no idea which direction they will go in so this is already a dampener straight away. The second problem is the female protagonist Nadine, I felt she was one of the most unlikeable characters in any of Jewells books so far and I just couldnt warm to her no matter how hard I tried. Apart from her romantic feelings towards Dig, which all women have gone through, there was nothing relatable about her at all. I just disliked her intensley which makes caring about her or her past very difficult.

The book is brilliantly written as usual, and there are some genuine funny and touching pages but overall this didnt leave me with much and I'd say its my least favourite.
