This was actually my first experience reading a Jane Green novel. I must admit that when it was chosen for this month's book club... I was a bit skeptical. However, once I began reading this book, I fell instantly in love with her writing style and character development. Definitely a 'must-read'

I got the CD to listen to since I'm traveling and it's just on and on and on until I was about to scream 'GET ON WITH THE STORY!' I can't even imagine sitting and reading all that ... all the descriptions, all the things that just aren't that important to make the story good. The thing is, the idea is good .. we all saw that in the big chill, and it would have been a good book if it had taken a different turn. I started out with a good attitude about it. After a while, I was ready to throw the CD's out the window. Next time I'll choose more carefully when I'm trying to be entertained while driving across country ... something like that is just dangerous. A person could fall asleep listening to such drivel!!

    Not good.

    From the description, i thought this would be a warm story about old friends rekindling their friendship and acting like kids again, realizing after the sudden death of their friend that they've only got so much time left together. Instead, I got the story of a bunch of rich ladies clucking about how hard their lives are. The main character, Holly, is the worst. All she thinks about is how much she hates her husband and everyone else's wives. Another mediocre story by Jane, surprise surprise.

    more from this reviewer

    Divorce, affair, etc.

    I have a hard time with books about affairs and divorce. mostly because I'm recently married and not ready to think too much about those topics. If you are more into these topics, then you may enjoy this book more than I did.

    Pass on this book

    SECOND CHANCE is the first Jane Green novel I've read and it was disappointing. The storyline seemed to drag and it was difficult to get engaged with this book.

    Skip this book and watchThe Big Chill

    This book was not at all what I expected. Not only was it boring, but it seemed like a bad re-write of the 80s movie The Big Chill. I do not understand how people have given this book really positive reviews. It makes me wonder what type of drivel they are reading on a regular basis!

    I LOVED Jane Green's older stuff, but her last two books were boring. I couldn't get excited about the characters at all.
