It was okay....,
This review is from: The Hopeless Romantic's Handbook: A Novel (Paperback)
I usually devour British chick lit. But this book... The story was good, it was, but I had two problems with the book. First, the "excerpts" from "The Hopeless Romantic's Handbook" were too wordy, too prosy, trying too hard, really, and I started skipping over those parts by Chapter 3. And secondly, some of the characters were underdeveloped in my opinion. You never "got inside their head." Though I think the three main characters had enough development, and one other character didn't need any more development as she came across quite well within her own dialogue. But all in all, it was only good. Not great, and not excellent.
