Reviews

Our nameless protagonist is a fabulous, intelligent, single globetrotter who braves complicated romances with ten very different men before finding the perfect one. First, she marries The Schoolmaster to escape her strict household but finds her new life as a teacher's wife dull, with no end in sight. So she has an affair with The Lawyer, who sends her to Paris but in the end won't leave his wife. Then there's The Billionaire, who doles out cash by the handful but refuses to commit to just one woman. The list goes on: The Actor, The Director, The Virgin, and The Lover. Our girl consistently chooses the wrong man but manages to get an education; live in London, Paris, and New York; and find her true calling (acting). But her disastrous romances eventually leave her exhausted, broke, and alone-until, that is, she has a watered-down feminist version of the Jerry Maguire epiphany: she must complete herself. Debut novelist Gray is clearly hoping to appeal to fans of other British chick-lit authors like Jane Green and Sophie Kinsella, but she completely misses the mark; the characters are flimsy caricatures, and the plot drags along. Not recommended. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 2/15/05.]-Andrea Y. Griffith, Loma Linda Univ. Lib., CA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
