Miss Mansell is a great writer, but I found the only creditable character in "Fast Friends" to be LouLou. Its a pity the book was about her friend, Camilla, instead.
Camilla, the main character, was very annoying. I found it hard to believe she would up and leave her kids just like that, her husband yes, but not her kids. Then she goes to live with her recently reunited school friend, and suddenly, after years been shy and plump, decides it's ok to walk naked around the flat. Then later on in the book, every male she meets secretly thinks she's gorgeous, yet she has no idea, that was annoying too.
I suppose Lou-Lou was the best character. But it took me about 3 weeks to finnish this book, and that's a long time. Anyway, i've already started another Jill Mansell, and thankfully, it's already much more promising than this book. I shall review that one when i finish it. But since this book has mostly good reviews, then definately try it out because it is Jill Mansell and she is a great writer. And i still love her books!
The plot is at times predictable, but that's almost unavoidable in a genre (happy romantic endings all round) like this.
Camilla is great as the little wife who turns her life around, but there are some holes in the plot - namely the fact that her children are hardly ever mentioned, nor is her divorce from Jack.
Still, a great read where you'll find yourself getting very frustrated with the star crossed romantics as they struggle to sort themselves out!
All the characters are very loverable (bar one who sets out to ruin Camilla's life - Roz) and very funny.
I also found this book very inspiring because when I read it I was going through a bad patch in my life but now I realise my lifes plain sailing compaired with Camilla's!
This book will make you laugh and cry but most of all it will make you want to read ALL of Jill Mansell's books!!
Well done Jill!
