I have to say that this has to be the book that has got me back into reading. It has to be the best book i have read so far and has made Josie Lloyd and Emlyn Rees my favoraite authors. I have to thank the person who told me about this book, if not i would be missing out on the laughters and smiles. This book is funny and so is all the other titles written by Josie & Emlyn. Start reading and you just will not want to put it down and its not just Come Again, but all the other books they have written!

I recently found the paperback version of this in a charity shop and bought it for a nostalgic read as I remembered how much I liked it first time round (1999!). I can still remember laughing out loud when reading it. I wouldn't say it has completely stood the test of time for me but it's still an entertaining read. I laughed again at how bored Amy gets in her temp jobs and filing her nails etc. I liked the will they/won't they relationship between Jack and Amy.

It's interesting that Lloyd and Rees were put together by publishers to write this book together but ended up falling in love with each other for real which I remember gave me a little warm glow when I read they eventually married and had children!

I will add that I wasn't as impressed with the sequel as I was with this first book but they're good writers and this can be read as a standalone. There is no cliffhanger like is the trend in today's books which is becoming more than annoying!

I bought this book by "accident" i had nothing to read and i saw this book in a little shop. I was in a hurry and i didn't have too much time to read on the back of it.............I think I just read the first 2 lines and then bought it and i really did the best buy ever. It's the best book I have ever read and when i finished i just wanted to know what happend to Amy and Jack. Then one day i discover that theres another one about them so if u have to remember to also buy come again :o)

I loved this book! I read it all in one day because i couldn't put it down. The book is interesting because it is written by two authors, but their writing styles go really well together and make it very easy to read. I laughed out loud on a few occasions and identified with the two main characters, and their friends. A friend recommended this book to me and I have now recommended it to all my friends. The subject and the humour is definitely aimed at young adults, but my Mum read it (aged 50 something) and loved it too. If you enjoy reading books by authors such as Jane Green, Kathy Lette, or Freya North - then you will probably enjoy this too. The sequel book (Come again) is also good, but Come Together should be read first.

I was off work ill today so I read this book (which was free with a magazine). It was quite a fun story, engaging enough to make me feel better but trashy enough to read in a day and instantly forget it ever existed: it's not exactly of life changing standard, but it is fun.
Come Together is co-written by a man and a woman and it tells two sides of a relationsip, alternate chapters reveal amy and jack's feelings. I'd be interested to know whther the authors each wrote one of the character's thoughs as the 'Amy' chapters are written very differently to the 'Jack' pages. This may be by design to distinguish between the characters' attributes, or it may just reflect Josie Lloyd and Emlyn Rees' different writing styles.
This was light hearted relief from a bad day; though I doubt I'll remember having read it in six weeks time!

I dont usually read chick-lit. But this one is just too good to pass up. Bridget Jones move over! My copy is absolutely trashed, because of all the times I have read it. It is hillarious, romantic, but romantic in a way where the feet are still planted firmly on ground. I think the fact that there are one female and one male author gives it depth that other soppy books just dont have. Even so, it is most definatly for women. Light hearted fun! Great stuff...

The first Josie Lloyd & Emlyn Rees I read was `We are Family', which I thought was amazing, so I immediately ordered `Come Together' and `Come Again' and read them back-to-back, hoping for more of the same.

However, these are nothing like `We are Family', primarily because these are essentially romantic novels, albeit with more interesting characters, but also because there was none of the "darkness" that made `We are Family' such a stunning read.

That's not to say that these are not enjoyable reads (`Come Together' more so, in my opinion) just in a very different vein.

`Come together' is funny, tender and very `real', maintaining the fine balance between being romantic and being soppy without ever becoming unrealistic. Furthermore, and unusually for a romantic novel, it has characters you can both relate to and care about.

`Come Again' is a sort of follow-on to `Come Together' in that it features many of the same characters, but they seem much more hastily put together, with far less depth to each in this one, so that I found it hard to become attached to any of them... in fact, they were only just likeable. Its saving grace is that, for a novel of its genre, it is definitely not predictable, and it made me smile on quite a few occasions.
