Beberapa film yang ditulis Lou Calabrese sukses, bahkan ia mendapat penghargaan sebagai penulis skenario terbaik untuk film terakhirnya. Namun kesuksesan belum memanjakannya, hanya membuatnya akrab dengan kemewahan, dan membawanya ke dalam situasi berbahaya...

Ia terjebak dalam helikopter bersama aktor sekaligus "musuhnya", Jack Townsend, dalam perjalanan ke lokasi syuting

If you don't mind Hollywood romance stories and are a fan of love/hate relationships, then this is definitely a great book to add to your TBR shelf.

She Went All the Way is the funny and sexy story of Oscar winning screenwriter, Lou Calabrese, and hunky, George Clooney-like actor, Jack Townsend. Things take off at lighting-fast-speed when Lou and Jack are flying via helicopter to shoot the final scene of the blockbuster movie series, Copkiller. (Lou wrote it. Jack is the star). The pilot pulls a

Well, untuk penghujung tahun 2010, satu lagi buku yang mendapat 5 bintang, dan ini satu2nya Chicklit di tahun ini yang dapet 5 bintang :D :D...

Dapet pinjeman dari si Kimbab, dan membacanya pas perjalanan pulang ke Malang, Aku bener2 terpesona ma ceritanya, penulisan dari Meg Cabot berjalan mulus dan tidak membosankan untuk dibaca. Aku mendapati diriku bener2 masuk dalam ceritanya.

Ceritanya sendiri berlatar belakang hiruk pikuk dunia perfilman di Holly

I normally like Meg Cabot, but characters here were just a bit too one dimensional and shallow. Situations are totally unbelievable, like getting all hot and heavy in the Alaskan wilderness while waiting to be rescued int he freezing cold wilderness!
Katrina Passick Lumsden
I have yet to figure out what I truly think of Ms. Cabot's writing. I often, while reading her work, vacillate between amusement, disgust, enthrallment, and irritation. Saying I like her work might be going too far, but to say I flat-out dislike it also seems too extreme. I guess all I can really say is that, most of the time her books are a pleasant distraction and oftentimes laugh-out-loud funny. For me personally, the humor in She Went All the Way is what sets it apart from most other over-th ...more

Read: October 2005
Re-read: February 2009

This was a great book! I have decided to put this in the hallowed Keepers pile because it is the perfect girly indulgance.

The main character is Lou Calabrese - a screenwriter who dated actor Barry Kimmel until he ran off with the co-star of the movie he was working on and married her. Lou is broken hearted and pissed off. Lou has to fly to Alaska to work on the movie she wrote - Copkiller and ends up in a helicopter with Jack Townsend - the star of Copkil

I haven't read a romance I really enjoyed in a while. This one didn't have a ton of sexy scenes (which was a nice change) and I actually liked both main characters. There were some genuinely funny scenes that made me laugh out loud. My kids asked what was funny and of course it was adult humor so I couldn't repeat. :) Definitely worth a read if you are looking for a light, funny, romance with not alot of sexy scenes.

Three strikes and I’m out. Jack’s a movie star, Lou’s a screenwriter, they don’t like each other, their SOs just left them and married each other, and now the helicopter circumstances forced them to share has crashlanded in Alaska and someone’s trying to kill them. Will they be able to fight off their attackers AND the growing attraction between them?

Yes to the first, no to the second. And both pretty easily. Good thing they crashed so close to both a ranger station and someone’s hunting cabin.

Akčné, strhujúce, romantické. Kniha sa číta tak ľahko ako by sa pozeral film - ten typický americký :-) Väčšina scén je viac neuveriteľná ako uveriteľná, o čom svedčí dejová línia, kde sa dvaja mladí ľudia, ktorí sa neznášajú, ocitnú v zasneženej Aljaške a bojujú o holý život. Behom štyroch dní sa ich šesťročné nepriateľstvo mení na nehynúcu lásku... K tomu sa do seba zamilujú aj ich rodičia (jeho matka Eleanor a jej otec Frank) a v poslednej chvíli (tak ako to má byť), na pozadí napínavej akčn ...more

I re-read this book and had forgotten how funny it is. It's also easy to read and engrossing, as are all of the Meg Cabot books I have read.

I definitely recommend this to anyone (probably women) who want a good book to read.

Poprvé čteno v angličtině...
Porduhé přečteno v češtině. Je to pořád stejná Meg Cabot, perfektní kniha na odreagování.
June Junebug
PROS:
- Easy read.
- Raunchy sex.
- Great premise.

CONS:
- Fatphobia.
- Repetition, repetition, repetition!
- Non-fluid writing.
- Odd character development.
- Poor plot pacing.
- Jack is a jackass (pun intended).
- Unoriginal and unbelievable.
- Stick to reading the back of the book; it's better than the actual novel.

COMMENTS:
I haven't read a lot of Cabot's stuff compared to other people but they're usually enjoyable. She is one of the best at the craft in the genre. This book fell short.

I read the reviews of this and foolishly thought it couldn't be that bad...well it was. I guess my overall opinion of it is poor because it just so thoroughly disappoints you. I do find Meg Cabot's work, as others of noted, varies widely across the spectrum of good to bad depending on which book you pick up. Historically I have loved some of her sassy teen fiction. I know what I want when I pick up a Meg Cabot book and it is frustrating when it disappoints. This book in particular was just silly ...more

Everyone has something that reminds them of the hilarious world of an awkward and painful teen/preteen years. For me, this is that.

In Indonesia, there's no such thing as sexual education class. Unlike western countries, in Asia the topic of sex was too taboo of a topic that the talk and the act of it outside of marriage is frowned upon and hushed about. Even the schools just hope students' parents to explain things to the kids. More often than not, parents don't educate their children on this a

Spoilers - This book was a more than a 4 for me, but not quite a full 5 (given that I've already felt the urge to reread it I'll give it all 5 stars) I did really enjoy reading it. The love hate relationship was definitely central to the story and the relationship was great. The plot was a little far-fetched and Hollywood but once you accepted that initial fact, it flowed well. The characters were engaging and captivating and I fell in love right along with them. The only problem for me, which I ...more

I think I'll just stick to reading the back of the book. It sounded better. It makes you think that it's packed full of action and some suspense. Oh don't let it fool you. There was very little suspense, and the rest seemed like 'fluff'.

When you think the characters will have to face a challenge it's like the 'easy way out' is just handed to them. Like when they are chased and, oh look! An abandoned Ranger's station! And then a little more chasing, and Oh look! An abandoned house! And then more

Tough Critic Book Reviews
I was convinced I would really like this book based on the description; it had all the makings for a great story:
1) You have your love/hate relationship which promises for alot of heated sexual tension, not to mention potential for sarcastic witty banter.
2) An appealing plot of overcoming extreme obstacles while being stranded in the wilderness with an extremely hot guy (which brings me to #3)
3) An extremely hot (hard bodied, playboy, action movie star)guy!

I was so disappointed. First off, the

Personal Response-
I really enjoyed the book 'She Went All the Way' because it was adventurous, romantic, and funny at the same time. It started out very slow but it picked up the pace mid-book. I loved how it ended and it'll leave a smile on your face as you read the last pages.

Plot summary-
Lou Calabrese is a quirky screenwriter who recently got out of a long relationship with an actor. After swearing she would never date an actor again, she gets into a helicopter crash in the frozen tundra with

Aku baca bukunya tapi bukan dengan cover yang ini, tapi covernya gambar Lou Calabrise. However nih buku ceritanya bagus banget, gak cuma romantis-romantisan ala novel2 cewek dewasa, tapi ada adventure-nya, ada action-nya, dan yang pasti banyak celetukan2 lucu. Lou digambarkan sebagai cewek mandiri, berani dan pinter (pastinya...), dia seorang penulis skenario film yang setia setengah mati sama cowoknya yang akhirnya ninggalin dia. Hingga akhirnya dia terjebak bersama aktor ganteng jack Townsend ...more

Was Meg Cabot 12 when she wrote this? It reads like a 12 year old's version of a love story.

Her: I hate him. He's so mean.
Him: Why does she hate me? That makes me love her.
Her: OOOOO! He's so dreamy, but I still hate him.
Him: I've been with hundreds of beautiful women who love me. But she hates me, so I choose her.

If that didn't turn your stomach, try reading a few hundred pages of this, then let me know how you are feeling. If you still feel OK, then you probably are 12.

If you want light, fun

*The Angry Reader*
DNF at 25%. i know that these books are lighthearted. Authenticity is not on the to-do list. But Lou's reaction to a helicopter crash was ludicrous. And it made her both annoying and unlikable. Disappointed to let this one go - but we're not going to overcome that last scene. (On a related note - Richard Russo is not the book you want to read along with anything else. He's making a mockery of other books - without effort.)
Rosemary Ibekwe
Another one of Meg Cabot's books that are read simply for the fun of passing time away.If you want a book deep and thoughtful then this isn't your book. This book was finished in one day for me, so if you are looking for something to read while traveling, this will be it. It isn't fabulous, but it isn't bad either; it is funny in its on sort of way and also romantic and has childish anxiety buildup.

Actually really good. The love hate relationship between Lou and Jack is delectable and if you're a smut fan...oh boyy...is this a book for you. The book was kinda awesome, amazing fast read. A little slow in the beginning (but what books aren't) and it will make you smile!!

4 stars! :D

This was a fun, fast, flippy read. Good sex, good romance, terrible plot. Characterization left something to be desired, but it was quite cute. I don't think I'll be looking for another one of her books soon.

I didn't realize what this was. I was just going on a Meg Cabot binge. I don't really do the strictly romance genere very well, and am finding myself rolling my eyes every other page. I'm not going to bother to finish so as not to jade my view of this author.

Meg Cabot was born on February 1, 1967, during the Chinese astrological year of the Fire Horse, a notoriously unlucky sign. Fortunately she grew up in Bloomington, Indiana, where few people were aware of the stigma of being a fire horse -- at least until Meg became a teenager, when she flun
