Reviews

'A new Toni Jordan is always a special pleasure and her latest is a wonderful, witty treat of a novel: cutting and clever, and yet so very romantic, as though P. G. Wodehouse had satirised life in the suburbs.' -- Liane Moriarty 'A highly entertaining romp through the complexities of modern relationships...A classic farce in the style of Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest, complete with physical comedy, exaggerated situations and a spot of class commentary in the form of suburban satire, Our Tiny Useless Hearts is loads of fun and clever too.' Books + Publishing 'Laugh-out-loud funny, yet with real emotion at its core, this is a sexy-smart rom-com about love and marriage...I loved it.' Australian Women's Weekly 'Reading in public may garner disapproval due to the inelegant snorting, snickering and laughing out loud which is inevitable...An absolute pleasure to read.' BookMooch 'Crisp and clever...Jordan doesn't cheat readers on the romance, either - conjuring a flawless but vividly rendered romantic hero and a love story that feels fresh and sexy.' Saturday Paper 'Crafty, clever and comical...Take a little of Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors, mix well with Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest, then set characters in one home, say in Carnegie, and you may begin to understand the wit in this delicious classic farce.' Readings 'A concoction of robust jokes, observations both profound and pat and a very nice visual humour, Our Tiny, Useless Hearts rips along.' Age/Sydney Morning Herald 'A funny, cleverly written story about the ups and downs of relationships...The suburban love triangles channels slapstick lunacy and farce so effectively, you can almost hear The Benny Hill Show theme playing in the background.' Qantas Magazine 'An enjoyable romp full of bed-swapping antics, lies and subterfuge...Full of wit and sparkle...In between the hilarious coupling shenanigans the novel is a clever suburban satire and a sly nod to Tolstoy's Anna Karenina.' Canberra Times 'That Toni Jordan's new novel manages to be a full-length fiction that simultaneously operates as a hugely enjoyable farce and an emotionally rich domestic drama is a testament to her skills as a writer and the charm of her voice.' Australian 'Farce entertains through exaggerated and improbable situations and Jordan has nailed that sentiment in this novel.' Herald Sun 'A classic bedroom farce with snappy dialogue and egocentric yet endearing characters...To describe Our Tiny, Useless Hearts as eminently readable is no aspersion; this comedy is perfectly calibrated to encourage glimpses of our own foibles in characters writ suburban-large - behaving badly, seeking forgiveness, and, sometimes, making amends.' Australian Book Review 'The action is fast-paced and deliciously witty...14 carat comedy gold.' Cairns Eye 'A delicious satire...Farce, wit and repartee ensue in a quick-paced, highly controlled plot...A highly involving and enjoyable read.' Otago Daily Times 'A real treat - a witty and original romp through modern - day relationships that feels like the literary equivalent of an Australian TV drama...Our Tiny, Useless Hearts is more than just funny, sharp entertainment. It's also a clever and informed exploration of marriage, love and lust, and a study of the modern family - messy, dysfunctional and tied together with bonds that are, often frustratingly, unbreakable.' Canberra Weekly 'A lively romcom full of witty humour and daft characters...Toni Jordan is an astute observer of the absurdity of 21st century life.' ANZ LitLovers 'Farcical yet real at the same time, this will have you laughing out loud.' Big Book Club 'Marriage is complicated-and sometimes hilarious-in this novel...Jordan's dialogue is quick and witty, her writing is sharp, and the plot is fast-paced. However, the story's heart comes from the way it deals with the serious issues (like infidelity and infertility) that hide underneath the humor. A funny, pleasant look at love, forgiveness, and second chances.' Kirkus Reviews
