Man of the Month Club

2.77  ·  Rating details ·  52 Ratings  ·  9 Reviews
A funny, edgy novel about having it all-when timing is everything.

Amy Stokes has made a fortune from luxury baby products: not bad for someone who doesn't particularly like or want kids. She'd rather stay out late with friends and spend her money on the fabulous life-designer clothes, a convertible, a chic apartment with a roof garden. Then Amy turns 39 and, after years

The premise of this book is fairly good. It is set up horribly. The main character, Amy, is not likeable. Her friends are equally annoying. The entire thing was sort of boring. Many times I told my husband, "I can't understand why I'm still reading this book." But I very rarely abandon books and so I pushed through to the end. I probably should have given up in the first few chapters after all.

This book could very well be the script of an English chick flick.

Jackie Clune has a witty and engaging writing style and I enjoyed the premise well enough, but was ultimately disappointed with the direction the plot went. (I'm not sure what I was expecting when I picked this one up out of the bargain bin.) This story just didn't go anywhere and felt really pointless. It was mostly told from the main character's perspective and should have been kept that way - the random scattering of other perspectives did very little for the story and really should have been ...more

This was a gift, so I read it. I thought it was a bit of a waste of time. The idea wasn't bad and there were occasionally amusing bits, but on the whole the characters weren't engaging and the book was a little....well.... boring!

I got this as a free gift. It was a cute book -- definitely something for the beach. I think the story could have been developed better, and the ending was a bit trite. But still, it was light and fun.

I really liked this book. Set in London. Amy doesn't want to have kids until she finds an abandoned baby. Gives herself a year to find a guy.
