Upon reflection as I write this it has also given me a sense hope. Nursing his hangover he goes to his best-friend since school Nadine. Like many of my favourite books, I started quite slowly until I really got into the story and then ended up reading the last two hundred pages or so within the space of a day.

Plume- Fiction – pages. An excellent use of dual narrative makes both of them seem very real, and flashbacks are incorporated neatly throughout in a very natural way which is hard to find elsewhere.

The dialogue actually sounds like authentic spoken language although sometimes the characters do tend to make too-long speeches and there are some memorable lines.

Thirty Nothing by Lisa Jewell – book review ยป Curious Book Fans

Overall though it is a very uplifting and enjoyable book to read and I loved it. It is rather predictable, and I really wasn’t enjoying the “present Ok I wasn’t really into reading this one at the start, it must have been been sitting in my cupboard for a few years when I found it – I vaguely remember buying it with one of those bulk buy book club deals a long time ago, and then promptly misplacing it. I found the characters’ actions hard to believe; their motivations for doing rash and unbelievably foolish things were weak.

At times the characters also seemed a bit far-fetched – yet I still enjoyed it. All of a sudden the former best friends quite agree on anything especially when Nadeen decides to meet up with her former love, Phil, an extremely suitable character.

I would say, if you liked “Bridget Jones”, you might like this book. They used to be best friends at school, but drifted apart when Dig started going out with the beautiful Delilah. However I have read quite a few of Lisa Jewell’s books and especially compared to some of her later novels this feels quite clunky. Refresh and try again.


There is a lot of graphic sex, profanity, references to drugs and alcohol. It was sassy British fiction and romantic comedy ala Bridget Jone’s Diary.

You might find yourself feeling unexpectedly jealous and you might do something really childish like phoning your first love and asking him out, just to get your own back. What a fun book! Can they get back their friendship or might they come to realise that they want even more than that? Newsletters Subscribe to our newsletter:
