Olivia s Luck by Catherine Alliott is about a woman named Olivia who finds love again after her husband leaves her during a major house renovation.It s a perfect beach read with than one subplot bringing dimension to this rom com There were surprises and a few twists and turns that left me guessing which is rare for this genre It s a fast, enjoyable read with a range of characters that play off of each other well Definitely worth a read This book is so about life This would happen to me or my family, at least the falling down part LOL Catherine gives you funny with enough depth that you aren t bored
Maybe 2.5 Stars I didn t particularly like the main character, which makes enjoying a book difficult This book is so much about divorce and trying to get a man back, trying to meet new men, liking a different man, then saying that man can t compare to the old man but then oh no, somehow he s the one It just doesn t make a whole lot of sense Either you want your man back, or you re confused and don t know what you really want but are trying to keep everything the way it is because the situation is so horrifying, that you need time to process it or don t want to really deal with the situation and ignoring it is easier OR you know you can t forgive that person Either way YOU NEED TIME TO PROCESS What annoyed me about this book is that she s so focused on her marriage until suddenly she s done with everything but it doesn t get explained really, why she s now not wanting to be with him Like, how is it that I don t know how she feels throughout the entire book She doesn t cry, she doesn t seem anxious, when she gets angry, she doesn t do anything drastic but instead someone tells her to stop immediately and she just stops That s not how feelings work It s unrealistic and stupid because how can a book so much about cheating and being rejected and being the boring, normal one be so without feeling Maybe I m overreacting But what I definitely hated was how she spent 80% of that book pining after her husband, trying to get him back, saying how no other man can compare and suddenly she s with the guy she explained wasn t the one for her MAKE HER END UP ALONE AND FIGHT FOR HERSELF BEFORE SHE JUMPS FROM ONE RELATIONSHIP TO THE NEXT. I love British chick lit, and I have enjoyed Alliott s other novels, but I gave up on this one I don t always need characters to be likable, but Olivia was so unlikable that I found it hard to root for her or even care about what happened to her Also, all of the bitchy snark about the physical characteristics of people who weren t thin and conventionally attractive got very tedious very quickly. Een boek over een vrouw die in de steek gelaten is Ik denk niet dat er veel mensen zitten te wachten op de klaagzang van een vreemde in de steek gelaten vrouw In mijn vriendenkring, met alle plezier al klinkt dat anders dan ik het bedoel Maar ik heb echt niet de behoefte om dan over een vrouw te lezen die probeert haar leven op de rails te krijgen, dan ook nog eens behoorlijk impulsief is en maar doet en doet en doet zonder ooit na te denken over de gevolgen het boek hangt met haken en ogen aan elkaar, en kabbelt van chaos naar chaos sorry, eens en nooit meer A hilarious read, this book is laugh out loud funny My favourite of Catherine Alliott s books Typical Catherine Alliott story Her heroines always seem to be rich twits and Olivia is no exception I didn t really like her honestly Nor Nina or Hugh or Molly The smoking really put me off Not bad for light reading, but it s hard to care what happens romantically to people you haven t warmed to The builders story was hammy and didn t ring true either Very long also Not to put anyone off who feels like a bit of chick lit, it s mildly amusing and the writing is good, it s just not overly convincing Read a lot worse. Enjoyed the British linguistics but found it to be a frivolous read with a bunch of shallow judgmental characters This one passage was the most insightful thing in the book Years of rich, privileged people playing carelessly with other, less privileged people s lives Let the little family of the lower orders beside the garage in Finchleyjust get on with it, just cope, whilst those who d created the carnage, those carefree, rich, amorous men.absconded themselves.
