4.0 out of 5 stars A great read, 26 Oct. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Thirtynothing (Paperback)
I don't see why anyone could give this one star. It's a great read. Its weakness is only the subject matter, which is very cliche, and yes, it's very predictable and you work out within the first 50 pages what's going to happen. But I think it is saved by Lisa Jewell's fine story-telling skills. She has a knack for making you turn pages and a very addictive style. The scenes are set-pieces aren't a patch on 'Ralph's Party', which was fresh and vivid - here in 'Thirtynothing' there are too many scenes which look as if they've been cut and pasted out of movies - such as the scene where Dig follows Delilah and thinks to himself 'He didn't do things like this, people in films did things like this...' But even so I think that for all its faults, it is still a cut-above the average CHick Lit novel, and something which will keep you glued to from beginning to end. Another good one which reminded me of this was Robyn Sisman's 'Just Friends' which is remarkably similar in style and subject - I can't work out which I prefer, Sisman's has a better, unpredictable plot, but Jewell is better at characterisation.
