A best seller in the UK, this witty and endearing novel about a woman's mission to discover what will make her truly happy introduces ten extraordinarily different men but none, it seems, that entirely fits our heroine's needs. Among them are The Virgin, who has charm but can't spell experience, The Lord, whose stiff upper lip makes for a stiff upper life, and The Billiona...more

BookList: Gray introduces an intelligent if sometimes misguided heroine who learns about life and love with real grit and spirit. Desperate to escape her mother’s stifling Catholic home, our heroine marries a schoolmaster at a men’s boarding school on a French island but quickly discovers that island life and a workaholic husband don’t fulfill her need for pleasure and adventure. She soon leaves him to pursue love as a single girl. True to the book’s title, she describes 10 of her conquests, fro...more

De naamloze ik-figuur uit dit boek is ervan overtuigd dat ze voorbestemd is om tegen de Ideale Man aan te lopen. Ze ontmoet negen totaal verschillende mannen in de veronderstelling dat haar ware Jacob ertussen zal zitten. Zo is er de Lord (hij zoekt een klasse Lady), de Regisseur (die van haar een Ster wil maken), de Miljardair (hij maakt haar financieel afhankelijk), de Maagd (die van haar de liefde wil leren), de Schoolmeester (gedurende korte tijd haar echtgenoot) en de Directeur (die zijn vr...more
The title is intriguing, but it turned out to be the only intriguing thing about this book. I thought it was just me, but the members of my book club felt the same.

One would think if there are 10 men to discuss, at least 1 of them would be interesting. NOT! Even the main character --and her search for a good, decent, whatever kind of many she sought-- didn't make you want to continue to read about her.

All in all, this was just not a good read.
Eigenlijk vertelt Gray niets minder dan het (liefdes)levensverhaal van een jonge vrouw die in Londen, New York en Parijs heeft gewoond. Op het einde loopt ze zogezegd ‘de Ware’ tegen het lijf, maar voor de lezer blijft het een raadsel of er überhaupt een relatie uit die toevallige ontmoeting zal voortkomen.

Aangename chicklit, soms grappig, zeker onderhoudend genoeg voor een avondje nietsdoen.

I read this book because I had read Alexandra Gray's other book and wanted to see what this book would be like. Both so very different but I still really enjoyed this book...easy to read and the male dynamics and relationships were identifiable! and how easy it can be to flit from one relationship to another..the main character got stronger within herself as her story progressed.
I really enjoyed this book. It was engaging and well written. Although this was not a character I sat wishing to be, it was still fascinating to read her elaborate story and think.... it could happen. I loved reading the book and felt it ended perfectly. I didn't end necessarily wanting more, but felt satisfied, like from a good meal.

Brillant story of a womans quest to discover what will make her happy whilst dating a line of Ten men.
She dates the virgin, the schoolmaster, a lawyer, a lord whilst having a lover on the sidelines, a billionaire, and the read is gripping as she toils between the men she wants and who will bring her happiness.
This is the first book I ever bought at the Dollar Tree and I have to say I really enjoyed it. It was light and funny and it was well worth the start of my addiction to buying books at the Dollar Tree. Enjoy!
Thought it would be another one of those trashy chick lit books, but I actually enjoyed this. Interesting narrative.
A women seek for hapiness but goes though many barriers to find it!!Great book....easy to read!
Interesting book, haven't read anything with quite the same style.
I wanted her to reveal more but it was still pretty darn good.

Fun, entertaining read.
