It has been months since I read such a love story. If this is to have a film adaptation, I would very much like this to be in the Indie films. I love Indie and with the kind of depth and dialogue this book has my cousin in law would flip with excitement.

This is not your typical boy meets girl, girl and boy and falls in love kind of thing, well ok not right away, there were complications and obstacles. This is a story of a girl named Jayne Holly Wyatt who met Ridley Richardson who listened to his

Alan Fox's The Girl Made of Cool is a love story, or a love triangle you might say. The main love interest is Jayne Holly Wyatt, a smoking hot "catch." She ultimately breaks up two roommates as they both chase her. The first guy is the awkward hopeless romantic Ridley, who is really the guy we're rooting for. The other guy makes the book though, even if he is a super ego player. Chet is the name and lust is the game. His goal is to sleep with 25 women before he turns 25.

Chet is a "teacher," and
This novel was very different for me, it's a short read, with interesting characters. It's got a very unique way in which it's written more like I would envision a Broadway play script rather than a novel, at the beginning of each of the chapters it “sets the stage” for what's to happen next.

I really enjoyed this concept, sadly though – I also somewhat found it distracting from the actual characters, and the flow of the story. I got to the point where I was only skimming this part of the novel,

The Girl Made of Cool by Alan Fox was a refreshingly delightful book, with actually three stories in one. You are first introduced to three friends in their twenties. There is Chet and Ridley who are roommates, then Jayne. She is the object of both men's desires, one wants her love, the other, well, he just wants her in his bed. Chet is handsome, wealthy and has the ladies dropping at his feet. You know the type ladies, we can see them coming a mile away. Except we just can't keep our eyes and h ...more

This story is about three twentyish year old people, Chet, Ridley and Jayne, who are having difficulties trying to figure out where they are in their relationship with each other, where two of these people are falling in love but do not realize it. The story is written mostly in small paragraphs, and I felt that it was written like a screenplay, where each section was setting up the story/characterization. At first I had a bit of difficulty reading the story in this format but I did get used to ...more
In the The Girl Made of Cool, Ridley goes on a first date with Jayne, and though he feels it is love at first sight, Jayne feels differently. Jayne is intelligent and beautiful, and she also knows it. Ridley is more the good guy type, he's sensitive and shy.
Ridley goes to his roommate Chet for dating advice. Chet is a playboy, he wants to make sure he sleeps with at least 25 women by age 25. He's a smooth talker, he's seductive and he ruthlessly goes after women. Soon enough a thought enters Ch
I was pleasantly surprised by "the Girl Made of Cool." I had read some interesting reviews of this book that had me very curious about it, but going into it I really didn't think that I would like it as much as I did. People had said that it might be difficult to get into the "screen play format," and after reading the book, I'm still wondering what they're talking about. What screen play format? It's true that the format was a bit different than what one is used to in books - the place and time ...more
Ridley Richardson has met the most wonderful woman. Her name is Jayne Holly Wyatt. He feels something for her. Though, from the beginning you can tell this is more of a one sided romance.

Chet Clifford and Ridley are housemates. They get along as far as housemates go. That is all about to change. Chet has also met the most amazing woman. Yep, you guessed it! It is Jayne. Chet wants to impress her, so he asks his co-worker, Nathan for some help. Jayne is impressed with Chet. The battle is on betw

This book is actually three short stories. So I will review each respectively.
Short One, The Girl Made of Cool opinion;
For stories, this was a good one. The characters were easy to relate to, and well rounded. It had a beginning, middle and a great finish. The one thing I don't know that I'm fond of is the format to which it is written. It is almost in screenplay format, and though it creates a scene immediately, it also feels repetitive at times. Still was a good read.

Short Two, Hell Has
The first story, "The Girl Made of Cool" seems very unrealistic. I don't believe any of those characters in real life would speak to imaginary audiences all of the time, and have the conversations that they had in the book. I thought at first that the love story would encompass a few years or so, but it only captures a few days.

The book was presented like a script. Something a high school kid would do for their plays, minus all the sex part that were being presented in the book, I guess. Grante
I found this book to be disjointed and the conversations un realistic. I could only read 1 story. I could see the romance but this book wasn't for me and one character having an audience was just weird.
