This book was so great. The only part I disliked was the language as I am not fond of the F word, but the story was very realistic, honest, felt like you were part of the family as Emily went through her stages in life. I would tell any reader to get this book and definitely it's a keeper. So glad I read it.

    I absolutely adored Jemima J and I couldn't wait for another Jan

    I absolutely adored Jemima J and I couldn't wait for another Jane Green book to come out, so I was so excited for Another Piece of My Heart. I have to so though, I am a little disappointed, especially in the way she writes. Very confusing at time, switches to the past for a couple of pages, then switches to the present and all that. Confusing characters too! Also, the writing is very hard to read. I like it when readers switch up their sentence structure/style every few sentences, but it is extremely repetitive with the short sentences. Like this. And this. And this.

    As for the plot, I definitely liked this because so many women can definitely relate to the many subjects Green brings up, such as stepchildren, menopause, infertility. But at times the conflict was repetitive which made the book a little tiresome and felt as if I read the book for days when I only read it for a few hours. I also wish she developed on some of the conflicts instead of ending them in such a bland way. And I wish she introduced the characters by weaving them in the novel; she kind of just threw character descriptions here and there.

    I honestly love the plot and it's extremely interesting, but it's just the new style of writing Green has adapted that I do not adore or find pleasant. The writing is very messy and repetitive! But I definitely think this is a great book to relate to and reflect on compared to her other novels. Not memorable, but not bad. Definitely good for a quick read, not something that I couldn't put down though.

    I got an advanced copy and I liked parts of it. The problem I had with the CD was that the author read her own book. Reading it may be different, but Green is English and this book takes place in CA.

    This was an enjoyable book. It was easy to get involved in and characterization was realistic but if developed more, this would be an excellent book. Plot was a little too predictable and at times the point of view became confusing. Perhaps beginning a new chapter or sub=chapter each time point of view changes would help.
