    Most horrific writing yet by Madeleine Wickham

    I really enjoy her fluffy reads but this was horrific. Slow, boring and pointless. I am sorry I spent money on this book.

    Awful

    I love Madeleine Wickham's books (including those written under Sophie Kinsella) I usually zip right through them - enjoying the writing, comedy and characters but this book is a failure.

    I am not at all surprised to find out that this book has been out before - years ago - you can tell! Her writing has grown exponentially since she has written this book.

    The characters are boring and not at all relatable or lovable. I don't care what happens to any of them. I'm still trying to get through the eleventh chapter.

    Not only are the characters dull, the plot is stupid and uninspired. I am majorly disappointed in this book and if I didn't know about Wickham's other work, I would never read her again - based on this lame book that I have yet pushed myself to finish.

    I have to agree with other reviews

    I have to agree with all the reviews. Fortunately I bought this book at the store from the clearance section. I love to read and usually zip thru books. Not this one! I couldn't really get into it but kept reading hoping it would pick up. It finally got kinda interesting at the end and then just ended. Don't recommend it!

    A Desirable Residence or a Very Boring Residence

    Very disappointing!!!! Couldn't believe this is the same author as Sophie Kinsella - not even a comparison to her other books. Characters, ploot, etc., were BORING - at best! Didn't get past 50 - too many good books to drag through a book like this one. Normally an excellent writer - I wonder what the heck happened!!!!
