I really njoyed this book Full review is on my blog Tishyloublogspotcom Reflections and lessons learned All the fibres of my so called life between hunger and hangover Love career randomness of friends and life in London but a yearning for finding things good for the soul and future I always fancied being a photographer tooI thought that I disliked the Shadow on the Crown (The Emma of Normandy Trilogy, end at first but then got it For such a good title and premise it was poorly written and the plot languished There are some good ideas here but overall they were underdeveloped and I think the book needed to be worked through a bit before being published I picked it up because I like the main character recently left my corporate career path to pursue creativendeavours so I thought it would be a fun and ContamiNation encouraging read But in thend the characters were unrelatable and the story was clich without being well written Taxi ins Glück enough to get away with it The protagonist in this book is Jess a struggling photographer heartbroken after separation from her boyfriend she is trying to piece her life together with the help of an amazing group of friends I really liked Jess s friends they are very believable but at the same time supportive and amusing personalities I have mixed opinion about Jess I liked her character and her determination but at the same time her decisions didn t make sense to me sometimesspecially when it comes to menThe narrative of this novel sounds uite realistic and I was ngrossed in Jess s journey and her struggles I really liked that the plot was not just plodding along telling the vents of Jess s daily life but the author threw in some interesting turns and different perspectives to shed light on all the Losing My Virginity and Other Dumb Ideas events happening in the book It allowed to know about Jenny s friends and how they feel in different situations The topics discussed in this book were love friendships hard work heartbreak dreams self growthtcI really liked the writing style of this novel it would feel like chick lit story sometimes but the author incorporated her little analyses of different life topics that made the whole book richer and sophisticated The chapters felt uite long at times but the story itself didn t leave me bored I really liked the The Magic Rolling Pin ending of this book it was unexpected but rounded up this story very nicelySo to conclude this was a very refreshing and indulgent book filled with realistic believable characters and difficult life choices perfect forveryone who suffers after a breakup or anyone who struggles to accomplish their goals This book is different to what I Indecent...
