This book was waaaaaaay too long. It could have been told with at least 100 less pages. It started VERY slow and and was very hard to get into. It wasn't until somewhere in the 300's pages that I finally felt like I had to finish reading just so I could find out what happened. There were completely needless plot points and I found it hard to care about several characters. I was not invested in them at all. I normally LOVE British authors but this story left much to be desired.

I got 140 pages into this book and just stopped reading it because I really did not care about any of the characters. I like all the other books by this author that I have read, but this was just boring.

I would have to say this book I did like, but I found myself arguing with the characters in my head (but why do this, as this is a chick lit book?). Are we really that divided? Either we want to be in a long-term committed relationship or we want to be fiercely independent. Why can't we do both? But yeah, totally on the Red Dress kick right now. Something light and fluffy.

This was a fantastic book! I was very intimadated by the actual size of the book; but it turned out to be a great read. Nothing seems so far fetched in this novel because the author writes so well. The only downside is the ending leaves you wanting more!

I liked this even more than I expected. The blurb on the back made it pretty predictable, so I was surprised there was no startling twist at the end. Loved it anyway.

Not a bad book, just far too long for what the story was. Good characters, although I did want to smack Maggie for some of her stupidity.

I made the mistake of reading this as my first chick lit book, frankly, it has deterred me from reading any more of the genre.

An amusing story, very English. I enjoyed the relationship between Maggie and her best friend Eloise.

Horrible ... didnt like the book at all. Read like 10 pages and was already dozing off!! a big NO NO...

Just a pleasant read. I can totally identify with Maggie's fear of commitment back in my single days.

Horrible. I wanted to bitch slap the main character. Actually I can't say I liked any if them.
