but, unfortunately, the heroine was so throughly unpleasant to her actually not that bad at all mother in law, that the book was totally frustrating. combined with the fact she never stopped moaning and complaining throughout (it is written in the first person), i couldn't have cared less what became of her and her family
irritating and tedious beyond measure
The total lack of communication between Ellie and Dan became really frustrating, and the whole plot conveniently skipped about to avoid explaining anything difficult.
I hated the patronising attitude about routines creating angel babies (was this book sponsored by Gina Ford??) and the horrible, cliched way single mums were portrayed as incompetents or maneaters.
This was one of those reads where you feel that the author had a deadline, and quickly churned something out to meet it. Read others by Jane Green, especially her earlier works which are great (except Spellbound!) but avoid this one. Instantly forgettable.
Jane's observation of Ellie's relationship with her husband and mother in law was spot on. Her description of life after having a baby really rang true - fantastic - one of her best books without a doubt.
I am a big fan of Jane Green's books, especially Jemima J. However Green has obviously changed quite a bit since she started out. She is now married with 4 children (and has gone from a brunette to a severe looking blonde according to the picture cover) and I think her recent stories are much weaker, Spellbound was terrible.
With The Other Woman I just couldn't care about immature Ellie, wet fish Dan, over baring Linda or any of the secondary characters in the novel, including Ellie's friends.
Jane Green might be the Queen of Chick Lit but I think she needs to get back to her roots and write of the single ladies who generally much more interesting than her married characters. Anyone looking for an interesting book about freaking out about married life after the fairy tale should check out After Ever After by Rowan Coleman which was much more interesting.

Whilst this book is quite an enjoyable read, having started with a fairly recent book by Jane Green, I would say that this [earlier] novel is not as good as her recent work... Read morePublished 16 months ago by Ms. K. J. Waghorn
