↠´ Read â The Model Wife by Julia Llewellyn ✓ 2 seems unfair because the story was okay but I couldn t say I liked it enough to say I like it and give it a 3.
sorry Ms Llewellyn.
Just because it wasn t my cup of tea though, don t let it put you off trying it You might like it than me.
I hadn t been sure if I had read the book when I picked it up out the long ago boxed up to move books The spine was pristine, the blurb didn t ring bells I soon remembered I had read it and even though I knew I had finished it before, I finished it again It clearly didn t gel with me the first time either hence why I didn t initially recall whether I had read it But being an authors dream reader once again, as I was recently described by an author friend I did the right thing and kept going to the end I don t usually read fiction, but I loved this book It made me laugh so much and even cry at the end It was a brilliant, enjoyable easy read with predictable twists which were a delight to read when revealed to the characters Throughly entertaining Okay, I need to qualify this rating by saying I give it 4 stars for a chick lit novel Not trying to be mean, I REALLY enjoyed this, the plot and the characters especially but The Model Wife is firmly in the chick lit genre and is not going to make a convert out of a hater.
I just flew through this book after reading some heavier stuff and it was so fun The premise is unusual enough that I didn t see where it was all going and I liked the characters, even the ones who are nothing like me all of them, lol.
read this book in 2 days, absolutely could not put it down I had to know what was going to happen to Poppy, Thea, Hannah and of course sleezy Luke Characters had a lot of depth to them and their personality traits shone through I particularly enjoyed the authors inclusion of dialect explanations, it made the book even immersive Some great twists and turns and a real page turner My first book by this author and definitely won t be my last Highly recommend for anybody who loves a good chick flick for some escapism Not really my kind of book.
This was not my kind of reading , but enjoyable
Nice and funny, I love how Poppy started to find herself and go out I m not the sort who would slough through chic reads, but this was was slightly different For one, it had a decent storyline, and it didn t completely bore me to tears Secondly, I could really relate to the characters and even if i didn t, it was nice to read stuff from a fresh angle Albeit a rather nice read, there were some disappointments too For one, the author writes as many different personifications, and I have a rather deep respect for authors who can distinct and differentiate their characters, especially in the character s thoughts and emotions But unfortunately, this wasn t the case, and I found too many similarities in the characters swagger of feel and thoughts.
Oh, plus there was a pool of spelling errors which put me off one time or another But the book s almost 500 pages long, so I suppose people can t be that meticulous.
Overall, I thought it was a rather lovely book, a good vacation read, yknow But after reading it once, I wouldn t think of reading it again.
I loved this Loved how it twisted the cliches, loved how it knew exactly what to give and take from its characters A plot twist with Poppy at the end was excellent.
I have been bored with chick lit of late It seemed to force its female protags into stupidity for convenience I liked how Poppy was genuinely naive here, and how the author wasn t afraid to make her a bit selfish and mean I didn t like her, but as a mother, I certainly sympathised with her, and her ending was so unexpected for the genre that it was satisfying food for thought.
The other woman concept is handled so well All the women in this book are the other woman, to an extent, and eacxh has real flaws and motivations You can see how a woman you know could fall into what is usually a reviled and pitied position For me, there was a powerful punch beneath the wit and charade on display here Best book I read last year the one I remember most clearly, certainly.
I liked the setting being based around a news programme which set some of the scenes up very nicely The way the author toyed with age differences was interesting I liked the way that Poppy s character developed but I didn t like the way her child came across as a complete spoilt brat from start to finish I thought overall the story was just nice It wasn t a page turner for me and at one point I didn t even pick it up for a while But I m not one to give up on a book and had no problem reading it to the end, I actually enjoyed the second half much than the first and was not disappointed by the ending.
