    Funny but predictable

    This is totally a beach read. It has its funny moments, but the plot is very predicatable.

    Excellent Read!!

    This book started off kind of slow, but once I got started I couldn't put it down. You feel like you know the characters personally. It turned out to be a really good read.

    Loved it

    Granted halfway through the novel I had more or less figured out what would happen- but the story is told in such a way that I couldn't put it down! The charictors are hilarious!

    Hmmmmm

    Maxted is a talented writer, and like her other two books, Behaving Like Adults is well-written. However, don't expect a light, breezy beach read in that the book deals with what the book flap calls an awful evening with Stuart, but as the reader later finds out, with rape. The rest of the book is an interesting foray into the recesses of Holly's mind and and her inability to trust anyone around her due to her experience--all well-crafted and believable. The only problem I had with the book is that everyone seemed to be too witty and too charming;they were sometimes unbelievable in their right-on-cue responses to every question or statement. The book has the classic romantic comedy happy and expected ending. I recommend it.
