A quick read, fortunately, that was not nearly as entertaining as anticipated. She wears a dress from her closet that she’s never worn and suddenly she’s beautiful and men I wanted to like this book more than I did.

I was very happy with the author’s writing style. Wild and chatoic, capricious and frustrating, there are certain physical laws that govern secondhand bookstores and like gravity, they’re pretty much nonnegotiable.

I would have stomached the ponderous pace and worthless dialogue. Her new friends were so unbelievably irritating and as for Eddie, my god. She needs a life.

The broadest selection of online bookstores. Perhaps the book’s pacing is ponderous, its dialogue is stock, you’ve read the plot a hundred times before.

Everything changes, however, when Louise discovers Elegancea fashion guide from written by Genevieve Dariaux, a legendary and fictional Coco Chanel—like arbiter of taste. The chapters on food and dieting, and on visiting friends for the weekend in the English countryside were hilarious. I know you’ll find this hard to believe because I shlep around eleganec jeans, baggy tees, and Dansko clogs.

Her flatmate was so stereotypically gay it hurt.

The author, Kathleen Tass I have a confession to make. In the end, I just did not click with the main character, Louise, on any level. New York, HarperCollins Publishers, Written with elan and panache.

An excellent first novel. The story was so predictable as soon as he asked for a light it became ridiculous.

A thoroughly enjoyable, delightful read. I will also recommend it as a springboard to those who enjoy exploring a more classic quieter way of life even though this is just touched upon in the novel. And as the old Louise gives way to the stunning new, she’s about to find out that there’s more to every life than what appears on the surface Having just been through a humiliating party in which she looked terrible, Louise pulls this book out and starts to read. Lawrence must constitute no less than 55 percent of all stock in any shop.


I felt more like the Droopy character in cartoons–an Eeyore-like dog, who always looks depressed and waves a little flag that say “Rah” and says “Hurray” in the most down-trodden voice. I found this book at the library, but all the pages were black and dirty looking and I didn’t want something that icky in my house, so I went and bought a copy because I thought that I would really like it.

It has a stunning premise. Initially, I was worried this was yet another attempt at recreating Bridget Jones and was ultimately surprised to find that this was not the case. When I got to the alphabetised ‘F’ chapter which concerned the ‘elegance of wearing fur’, I chucked the book down and said an expression that also started with the letter ‘F’: Can’t wait for her next one.
