Depression, not a subject that immediately springs to mind when it comes to romantic comedy or chick-lit. But with The Fall of the Misanthrope, Louise Wise has taken has taken this oft times misunderstood condition, and handled it with great sensitivity while at the same time providing laugh out loud humour.

The humour comes mostly in the form of the monstrous Ellen Semple, an interfering busy-body who insinuates herself into every aspect of protagonist Valerie Anthrope's life. Ms Wise writes her so well and convincingly that I disliked her almost from the moment she is introduced. And, very cleverly, her presence had me rooting for the flawed Valerie, much more than I think I would have if the self-styled fairy godmother hadn't been there.

Other light moments are provided by Valerie's employees, Tim and Paul, and the handsome Lex Kendall, who pursues Valerie despite Ellen's interference.

Over all, this is a well written and entertaining story with a clever ending that brings everything together. It has all the ingredients to make the basis for a comedy-drama series on television. Are you listening Sky TV?

I read Louise Wise's sci-fi romance Eden, last year and really liked her voice. I was intrigued by the title of her more recent publication, The Fall of the Misanthrope. I bitch, therefore I am, especially with its billing as a `dark chick-lit!' Misanthrope is a deeply romantic and insightful tale, which deals with difficult issues and the healing power of love. It is also very humorous and made me laugh out loud on more than one occasion!

In the novel,Valerie Anthrope (Miss Anthrope - I loved the pun) is a young woman who runs a financial brokerage. Valerie is not only serious minded and hard working but, she can also be a bit of a bitch. She lives alone and keeps herself to herself, concluding that it is best not to care for anyone. There nevertheless resides within her a deep sadness and vulnerability.

In steps Ellen Semple, a missionary worker returned from abroad, who, in true `fairy godmother' form resolves to make Valerie her next `project. Ellen senses something is not quite right with Valerie and does her best to bring light into her darkness. She secures part-time employment in Valerie's small office. Then, believing that Valerie's outlook is due to financial difficulties, she persuades her nephew Lex Kendal, a successful businessman, to put a large contract her way. When she sees that Lex is intrigued by Valerie, she warns him off her, believing that Valerie is too fragile to handle Lex's `love'em and leave `em philosophy.' Yet Lex does not take no for an answer, and Valerie falls for him. When she discovers that he is Ellen's nephew, a fact that they deliberately hid from her, she feels deceived, let down and deeply wounded. To protect herself from future hurt she dumps Lex, almost as soon as their affair has begun.

I loved the sub title Warning: contains nuts, so I was expecting to read a humorous book and I was surprised that it was more serious than I thought it would be. I wanted on many occasions to give the heroine a good shake, and I did not relate to her all that well, but the storyline was good and I did enjoy the read. Although you might guess the ending long before you got there, there were a couple of little twists that surprised me. An easy, light read.

I'm probably not the target audience for this book (male mid 40s) but I'm not averse to a bit of chick lit, and this serves it up perfectly. it's a tad darker than your average book in the genre but all the more appealing for it. Found the characters believable and well developed, and particularly enjoyed Lex's character, even if he is a bit of a rogue. Recommended.

Brilliant book, funny, charming, original and entertaining. A perfect book to read while relaxing on holiday or unwinding at the end of the day.
I didn't want to put it down and will definitely be reading more from this author.
