Review

In the latest crop of chick-lit beach reads...Grace Wynne-Jones comes out top with her quirky new novel 'The Truth Club'. Her characterisation is always amusing and the plot is delivered with warmth and a healthy sense of the ridiculous...it's Ms Wynne-Jones's cutesy sense of humour that makes this book so tasty. The Sunday Independent '...a novel which by turns had me laughing (aloud) entranced and, by the end a little bit wiser than I was at the beginning. In 'The Truth Club' Grace Wynne-Jones has produced a book in which the eclectic characters almost leap from the pages...the book also contains a perfect man, Nathaniel, who 'almost always' says the right thing...' Ireland on Sunday '...Grace Wynne-Jones has written an entertaining, intelligent and genuinely funny story...this is a great read, especially for commuters...guaranteed to shorten any journey.' The Irish Time It is a tour de force. Katie Fforde

The first chapter hooked me when Sally (the heroine) describes herself, her job, her marital status, her family, etc. and says that her job as a freelance journalist isn't very exciting, compared to other women in her family who " ... are teachers or social workers or aromatherapists." I laughed aloud and thought I was really going to enjoy this book.

But it didn't continue to amuse me. I was overwhelmed with chapter after chapter (and, good heavens, there are 46 chapters to this book!) of the female characters' angst over their lives. By Chapter 8, I was wondering when the story was going to stop with the angst and have some action. It was well-edited in the beginning, then something happened before the halfway point where the font style went from normal to italic. Not all italics either. There was no rhyme or reason to when the font style would flip from one to the other, but it happened all the time. By Chapter 22, with not much plot action, a lot of angst, and the font style changing haphazardly, I asked myself if I really wanted to finish the book, and I had a hard time deciding. But I made it through Chapter 46 finally.

Although I was happy with the ending, the journey just wasn't much fun. Except for the font style changing, the book was well-edited, with very few typos and/or grammar errors. It did have quite a bit of the self-deprecating humor that attracted me to the book originally.

If you like a lot of introspection and angst, you should enjoy this book. But I would have liked it much better if there had only been 26 chapters!

Another hit from the lovely Grace Wynne-Jones. This book follows Sally and her part time marriage to Diarmuid. She's not sure if she wants to continue this way, go back to how things were, or be young (ish) free and single. Free and single to date Nathaniel, that is. The mystery of Aunt DeeDee had me hooked. I certainly didn't predict the outcome there. I adore Grace's writing style and gentle humour. She never fails to have me laughing out loud. Recommended.
