A good read... if you have nothing else to do.
on 22 August 2017
I was bored and looking for the book equivalent of a chick flick to read on breaks at work. Still not sure how I managed to finish this one considering that for the first 60% nothing remotely interesting happens.
The characters are superficial and dull with it, there isn't a single one of them I formed any attachment to. The central character, Janey, is a manipulative, self-absorbed, social climber who learns absolutely nothing. Despite a hastily written in observation, from one of the few other characters who favours her, she remains unlikeable, much like the novel as a whole.
