Not a bad book for some easy 'fluff' reading. Really liked the characters. Really disliked that everyone lived happily ever after and that there wasn't any real character GROWTH by the end.
I really liked this. The book wasn't what I thought when I purchased it, but I didn't dislike it. I was pleasantly surprised. I will certainly recommend and hand this story off to others.

I'm having a little chic-lit Kim Green fest this winter - as the author is actually my cousin by marriage, which in my book, no pun, is a cousin. I feel funny applying the chic-lit label as this author along with others who focus on what might be a "chic" pov- actually are hitting some interesting subjects with smart raucous acidic humor. Not just a rehashed tale for girls who simply must get married by 30, more complex than Bridget Jones, less trash, more guts. And you will laugh and want to ea ...more
A quick chick-lit fun read.

This book was so good the friend I loaned it to passed it on to 2 others before she gave it back! I had trouble keeping the four main characters straight at first, but once they started to come together and form their friendship I couldn't wait to find out what would happen to them next. I found myself relating at least a little bit to each of the characters, and enjoyed watching their progress over one long summer. I could see the beautiful Greek scenery too. Wish I were there!
Took me a bit to get through it...too many back and forths between characters. Each chapter was a character and hard to keep it strait.
I read this book over a summer vacation & it was the perfect beach read. Like reading the journal of four women, who are all in the Greek isles. I felt like I was there with the characters. Wonderful setting, fun characters, very humorous, enjoyable read. I was sad when I was done with the book - definitely didn't want it to end - I felt like I was losing four friends.

Paging Aphrodite is a cute read if you want to escape to the beach in chick-lit form. Each chapter is told from the point of view of 1 of 4 women who are summering in Corfu---each one is there to escape something in their "real lives". It's slighly predictable and formulaic, but it is what it is-- an escapist beach read.
I enjoyed it, but there was quite a deal more whining than I can take. Also the whole everyone's like family, friends, exes, boyfriends, husbands, anyone just came to Greece. And I'm thinking do these people really not have anything better to do and just free flowing money to go to Greece at the drop of a hat.
Cute book set in the Greek island of Corfu. I want to go there! The book reads fast. It cuts between the four characters, each telling their own chapter. It can be a little distracting, but I got into the story, I didn't mind. good chick lit book, a great summer read!

Recommends it for: anyone looking for a fun beach read.
Recommended to Marlena by: I found it when I was shopping for books.
This was a fun beach read. I enjoyed reading it while I was relaxing in Mexico on my spring break vacation. I liked how each chapter was about a different character yet the book still connected all of the characters together.
The main reason I bought this book was because of the cover. It was an ok read. It's about 4 women who meet in Greece and become friends. I found that some of the storylines were boring or carried on for too long.
lovely concept & story-line, actual writing not so good. a disappointment. i guess i was expecting something along the lines of my one of my favorite films "shirley valentine" and it did not deliver.
This book was a lot of fun to read and a great way to start my vacation. The setting was beautiful, the characters where funny, and the plot was more engaging than your typical vaca-lit.
Okay it was fluff, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Our library doesn't have any other books by her, but I'll Inter library loan some.

I read the first 1/3 of this cute summer read that takes place over seas. Need to finish it, as it is a better than average chick pick.
Very definitely one of my favorites. One that I will be purchasing for my own collection. This one resonated deeply within me.
Good as a beach/vacation read. Pretty cheesy happily-ever-after but the characters were likable and it's a quick read.
Perfect beach reading. Especially while sipping your frappe on a beach in Greece.
Chick book. Had to be in the mood, but it was a decent book.
It was a cute book to read to pass the time.
Not as good as "Is That A Moose in Your pocket".
