Overview

Here I Go Again by Jen Lancaster

The second novel from the New York Times bestselling author of If You Were Here takes us back to the hair metal 80's.

Twenty years after ruling the halls of her suburban Chicago high school, Lissy Ryder doesn’t understand why her glory days ended. Back then, she was worshipped...beloved...feared. Present day, not so much. She’s been pink-slipped from her high-paying job, dumped by her husband and kicked out of her condo. Now, at thirty-seven, she’s struggling to start a business out of her parents’ garage and sleeping under the hair-band posters in her old bedroom.

Lissy finally realizes karma is the only bitch bigger than she was. Her present is miserable because of her past. But it’s not like she can go back in time and change who she was...or can she?

I have to say from the start that this book would _never_ be published if Jenn were a new novelist. This is one of the worst books I have ever read--and I'm glad I used our library and spared the expense. I first want to say that I have been a huge Jen Lancaster fan in the past, although my enthusiasm for her writing is diminishing rapidly. This one slid her further down my readability chart. First, there's nothing original or new in this novel. She reached into her used writing bin and carted out bits of her previous memoirs: recycle, recycle, recycle. The story reads like a VERY young reader novel with a completely unbelievable plot--there is no way a reasonably intelligent person could suspend disbelief. The writing is recycled and the storyline is unbelievable. She should go back to memoirs because novels aren't her forte.

I enjoy Ms. Lancaster's books but they are getting predictable. Her heroines are the same, the issues and problems are the same and the resolutions are the same. She needs to break out of this rut and get some new ideas.

Awesome book, Jen is an amazing author. I went from absolutely hating Lissy to loving her at the end! I wanted to read it again as soon as I finished.

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings If you took the movie 13 going on 30 and added a little cocktail twist, you would get Jen Lancaster's latest trip to fiction - for me it was one of the best books in her portfolio.  Lissy Ryder is the high school queen who led the rally of the Mean Girls and after a class reunion is regretting a few things that may have happened in the past.  Through an interesting encounter with a classmate she is given the opportunity to rewind the clock a bit and change a few things, will all the changes result in good?

This book is not profound. There are many other books who share similar plotlines and/or have similar characters. And yet, just like "It's a Wonderful Life," "Here I Go Again" will definately become a guilty pleasure. It gives its lessons in morality gently and under layers of giggles and cringe-worthy moments. In a style that is uniquely Jenn Lancaster, "Here I Go Again" will make you laugh, make you cry, and maybe even learn something about the way the world works. And so maybe it is a bit profound after all.

LOVED THIS BOOK!! Jen Lancaster has done it again! I read this book in 2 days. I could not put it down. I laughed aloud! And, if you haven't read any of her other books, you MUST!!

If you are a fan of Jen Lancaster this is a wonderful addition to your collection. An excellent storyline that kept me riveted for two days until I finished the book. If you are not familiar with Jen as an author this book introduces you to her wit and expression before you meet the woman herself in Bitter is the New Black.

I really enjoyed the book. It's very smart and funny. I think many women can relate to jumping back to high school. Actually I listened to the audiobook read by the author, and she makes the story come alive. This is light read for me, and the second of Jen Lancaster books I read. Quite enjoyable.

Jen Lancaster does it again. This book has something funny on every page. She makes her every day life a comedic affair and you recognize yourself in her antics.
