    Boring.

    I liked 'Babyville', so I figured I'd try another Jane Green book. This one was disappointing. It was very slow moving and didn't appear to have any point. The event that drove a wedge in their friendship during the early years seemed petty and lame, and not something that would affect the rest of their lives. That set the tone for the rest of the book, where the characters made huge assumptions (usually wrong) and didn't really do anything but live their average, boring lives. Not something that makes for an interesting novel. I'm about to start 'Swapping Lives' and hope to god it's better than the snooze fest I just forced myself to finish.

    Boring!

    This book was extremely boring. The only character that was even mildly interesting was Lucy. Did not like Cath at all. Si was ok but did not like the little twist at the end with his story. All in all, a big disappointment.

    I didn't get me

    I had a hard time getting into this book. Not sure if it was because I couldn't relate to any characters or what. I read up to the 4th chapter and was just plain board.

    Read Jemima J or Mr. Maybe instead

    I loved Jane Green's first two books but I found this one rather boring. I could not put down Jemima J or Mr. Maybe. With those two my friends had to beg me to leave the book and hang out with them. I prefer her first two books because they focused more on romance and, well, sex. This one was just kinda blah.

    Dull

    I was disappointed with this book- but since it is my first Jane Green book, I will definately read her others since I heard good reviews about them. Don't bother to read this one.

    Don't Bother! Read 'Jemima J' instead

    Let me start by saying I am a HUGE Jane Green fan, but I am totally disappointed with this book. I practically had to MAKE myself continue to pick up this book. I finally choked it all down, and needless to say, I am not happy with it. Much of it was entirely predictable and pretty much, well... Boring! I wouldn't recommed this book to anyone!
