If you love romantic comedies and corny romance than this one is for you!
I honestly cared about the characters and while Scarlett's stomach was doing gymnastics mine was right along with hers each time she got closer to Sean. The main character, Scarlett, is obsessed with the movies and I have found that I must be also. As different situations happen around her that remind her of one movie scene or another I was there also saying out loud what movie it was from. It was an amazing feeling as I was living the new moment through Scarlett but of course I was also remembering the movie and how it also made me feel the first time I watched it.
If you are reading this review and you have even a passing interest in 'Chick Flicks' or 'Chick Lit' then you must read this book! It made me very happy.
To me, it was perfect... and it had me at the very start. :)
Scarlett our main character is almost obsessed with the movies. She loves all films but romantic comedies are her thing. Her fiancé David is sensible and caring but that's where it ends. As soon as I started reading I just fell in love with Scarlett. Yes she is slightly ditzy and has her head in the clouds more often than not, but she is very endearing. Her fiancé ...is the most boring character I have read about in a while and my empathy was firmly with Scarlett when she compared him to some of her movie idols.
The movie theme is what really made this book and the fact that the films and certain well known quotes are used from start to finish gave it that extra bit of magic. Scarlett also seems to have an extremely bad habit of causing havoc and mayhem wherever she goes. When Scarlett is given the opportunity to house-sit for a friend in Notting Hill she jumps at the chance. With her house-sitting duties comes a whole heap of new friends as well as an annoyingly handsome next-door neighbour.
Now I know that some people may write this book off as being predictable and far too fluffy and romantic, but I say don't knock it until you tried it. After all Rom-Com films make millions because people sometimes want the predictable fairy tale.Read more ›
"From Notting Hill with Love Actually" is the first book by Ali McNamara and it a cute, fun read. The writer clearly know her "Rom-Com" films that comes out in the book. This is cute book that anyone of the "chick-lit genre" will enjoy. Overall "From Notting with Love Actually" is a fun, pleasent read that you may not want to miss.
This is one of those rare cases where I think a movie version might supersede the book. This first half of the book I had a hard time relating to Scarlett, and it dragged a tad. With no other word coming to mind, she was just silly. Normally, I love Brit humor and stories, and in a way this was no exception aside from Scarlett. The secondary characters shined, outweighing the main ones, and the underlining tension and back-story were interesting. The hero, Sean, was freakin' amazing. I fell in love with him from the start. The most redeeming quality of the book, however, was the end. Boisterous, ridiculous, and over the top perfect for this storyline.

If this weren't on a shared family account, I would return it. Not a single one of the characters was believable. Everyone and everything they did was ridiculous and tiresome.Published 11 months ago by Elizabeth A Scheimer
