Top Customer Reviews
That said a great summer easy read! Not a juicy, big block buster read but a pleasant one. This was one of the reasons I choose this book, as I wanted a easy book that doesn't involve too much thought process, no murders just a good read.
Emma a 30 year old is suffering at the hands of her mother and friends about the lack of her having partner, even worse this is magnified at her sister's wedding.
So Emma declares 'Spinsterhood', funny at parts and also sad in others.
Well worth a read but remember not a corset gripping summer read.
If you like Jackie Collins type books you would be disappointed with this as in no way does this compare.
That said I feel it only fair to point out that I am a 25yr old athiest from England, I'm sure the book will apeal to more religious readers who apreaciate the lack of bad language and the very sexualy moral path the characters have chosen to take. I do however, feel that there should be some indication of this on the cover. I looked forward to reading what I expected to be a modern chic lit. The books only time indicater is a referance to a memory card for a camera, without this you could easily believe the book is decades old.
I can sum up this book in one word: Predictable. Painfully so. If you couldn't pull together the outcome of the book based on my summary, you're daft! The characters were fairly shallow and cliché- the nagging mom, the teasing brother, the oblivious dad, and the arrogant prick of an ex. That said, Declaring Spinsterhood was cute. It's no epic love story or future Nicholas Sparks-esque movie, but it provides some light entertainment for the few hours it takes to read.
Emma and Brian are funny and cute together, and their dating horror stories are ones which most people can relate to. Many women can relate to having the meddling mother, but the author seems to exaggerate a bit (really though, if you found out what your daughter's ex did to her, would you push her to get back together with him, simply so she'd have a boyfriend???). The characters of Emma and Brian were fairly well developed, although sometimes Emma's personality didn't sync well with her actions. She comes across as timid and easily influenced when she's with her family, but she's simultaneously out getting her concealed carry license so she can better protect herself.Read more ›
