De Andrea Semple había leído hace años La Maquilladora y fue un libro que me encantó. Por esa razón me decidí a leer este libro. Pero la suerte no me ha sonreido esta vez. Si al otro le doy un 5, a este le doy un tres raspado.

El personaje de Martha está bien definido y me ha atraído en todo momento pero que en el libro hable constantemente de los ex, es bastante rollo. Me esperaba alguna historia de amor ó sus líos en el trabajo como suelen tener todos los libros de chick-lit. Ya sé que el títul

In a world full of surprises, Martha was really in for the shock of her life when:

1) Luke, her boyfriend of two years admitted to have been unfaithful,

2) that the woman he was having an affair with was Martha’s friend, Desdemona

3) (Des), whose boyfriend was Martha’s ex-boyfriend, Alex.

A juicy rollercoaster love triangle, isn’t it?

I have already an idea about the whole story after having read the back-book cover. Yeah, it’s really quite predictable. But I still didn’t put the book down after ge

I read this on vacation and it was just what my mind needed...entertaining with no thought required. It is very Bridget Jones/Shopaholic-esque in its British banter and clever catch phrases.

Briefly, Martha is a relationship advice columnist who ironically finds herself at the advice-seeking end of the stick after her boyfriend Luke cheats on her...with her oldest childhood friend, Desdemona. While no staggering work of genius, it is funny, sweet, and spot on with some brutal truths about life &
I really liked the flow of this book. There was a twist or two that I could see coming, but that's due to reading many, many stories and books semi-similar to this one. Had I been a reader fresh to this material I definitely think I might have rated it higher. But Andrea Semple's a great writer and this book only reinforces that.

Very enjoyable! I found this story to be very humorous and engaging. I thought Martha was a likeable and believable character that the reader will root for to succeed. A few surprising twists that had me laughing out loud.

I will be on the watch for more from this author.

Vale, no es que esté mal pero se me ha hecho bastante pesado al hablar durante toda la novela de los ex de la protagonista.
Que si, que quizá se veía venir por el título pero es que no me esperaba que fuese a ser tan literal...

Loved it..If you are a woman and have ever experienced any type of relationship with a man you need to read this one!!!!!Makes you laugh out loud, cry and want to call your best friend right away!!and I did!!!

Just ok. some parts were laugh out loud, some tired and old.

Too Bridget Jones style for me.

Andrea Semple was much better with Bernadette.

A bit slow going at the start... you don't even really spend time with the ex in question until 2 thirds of the way through. So, not quite what I expected, but not bad wither I guess.

Son tantos las escritoras que tratan de imitar al personaje de Bridget Jones...el problema es que ella es única en su clase.
Chick-lit unfortunately not at its best. It is entertaining but predictable. Some paragraphs were even quite funny and I'd buy the book again as a read on the beach or on the plane.
