Spring in London was first published back in 2010. The story begins with Danny Jo, our Korean male main protagonist, who was receiving a phone call from his friend, Jung Tae-Woo. Yes, he is the male protagonist from the first novel in the series entitled Summer in Seoul. The call was about a job offer for Danny to star in Jungs music video. Danny is a model and he has an older sister who wanted to help him get a compatible partner. Shortly, after he accepted the offer, he went to London to do ...more

Surprisingly, I like this better than Winter in Tokyo.

Still with formal languages that sound like they're translated directly from English to Indonesian.

Similar characters, not so much of a background story (which is kinda too bad coz the title specifically mentions a setting). Male character is too perfect. Side characters not properly utilized. Physical characteristics not properly explored.

But I like Naomi. Makes for a quick, painless reading.
The author had lost her magic on me after her book Autumn in Paris.

It is still well-written, but in the bland way. I was struggling to finish the book and it didn't leave neither good or bad impression, in fact there was no impression whatsoever. I'm glad, though, the cheesiness wasn't as overload as her previous book I read.

Just interesting things I noted:

Beware, for the world is indeed small.

The last book that completes Ilana Tan's seasons tetralogy. While it takes place in London, the characters are by no means Londoners.

Danny Jo (or Jo In-Ho) doesn't understand why Naomi Ishida keeps avoiding him. He's a good-looking popular model in Korea with a charming smile, and is a nice person who's friendly to anyone. They will be working together for a music video, but Naomi keeps a safe distance away from him.

Why Naomi doesn't want to deal with Danny is a mystery, and while it might be

The background is very Asian instead of London-like. I agree with the previous review on the following:
-Annoying expression "Oh dear" - Ilana should read more British authors!
-Unnecessary repetition for some scenes. OK, I get it, perhaps Ilana would like to imitate Eoin Colfer of Artemis Fowl where he used several perspective for a same scene - but Mr Colfer always displays different insights and useful information for the readers...
-"Sayang" - actually English people have so many expression: my

i will give this teenlit-love story novel 3 star.
that's the most star that books of its kind can get from me, since i'm not really a big fans of love story if it's JUST a love story, with no additional plot or twist

This simplicity of a love which makes a person stand up to reality

This one is a bit subtle, but Ilana has braced herself for some 'real' issue.

Well, a good one nonetheless.

I'm sorry.
I couldn't finish this book no matter how hard I've tried.

Definitely not my cup of tea.

Easy reading novel.
Plot were interesting for the past experience happened with Naomi Ishida.
Other than that I didn't see any interesting part that I will read the book more than once.
