    Wasn't impressed.

    I hate it when I can't finish a book out of disinterest...which happened for me with Larger Than Life.

    amusing chic lit tale

    At eighteen Georgina saw Hugh for the first time and knew he was her soulmate though he did not quite see it that way at that time. Now fourteen years later, Georgina lives in London with her beloved Hugh, and on top of that likes her job and is financially solvent. Georgina wonders if life can get any better than hers is? <P>When Georgina learns she is pregnant she has a mixed reaction. She wants to be a mother, but worries how Hugh will react. While wondering who to tell as she fears Hugh might recoil from her and her mother detests having a thirty something child, Georgina immediately rules out abortion. She knows that if Hugh behaves badly, she is financially secure to raise the child on her own. She is only in the beginning stages and as she grows rounder, her world as she knows it spins off its axis starting with seeing Hugh in a different filtering of me-me not we-to the three. <P>This book should be labeled chic lit even though it contains elements of mainstream drama and because a pregnant woman seems within the lanes of this interesting sub-genre. The amusing story line is told mostly in the first person, which provides an interesting series of events as Georgina progresses with her pregnancy. Her actions, frustrations, and reactions change too. Hugh comes across as a pathetic loser making it difficult to see why the bright, gregarious G saw anything in him. Fans of chic lit and character studies will want to read LARGER THAN LIFE as this is a fine one sitting novel. <P>Harriet Klausner
