About this deal

However, this is quite a long book and there were plenty of parts within the story were a little predictable.

So, all that said, I just loved reading as she sorted things out and started (re)building a life she could be proud of. Are Edward and Nell meant to he together or is life for Nell meant to be as a single woman, investigating IVF, hosting her own podcast and answering an agony aunts column with Cricket. Friends that I used to have but don't have anymore and didn't even think about them for years until today and all I remember is all the fun that we used to have and nothing else. Edward stays in the city during the week and leaves for the weekend to stay with his family and Nell figures the 3 days of freedom make up for the never ending furnace, electricity and toilet paper roll wars. Că fericirea nu e ceva ce îți dau alții, că îți poți îndeplini obiectivele din tinerețe (soț, casă ca în reviste și copii la școli private) și tot sa nu fii fericită.Confessions of a Forty-Something F**k Up is a funny, heartwarming commentary on how society norms -particularly for women- and pressure from the media can make us feel like failures, when actually we’re not.

It had everything I was looking for in a novel and I hope others pick this up and love it as much as I did. Nell Stevens is forty-something who has recently moved back to the UK after her life in California fell apart -including her relationship. He also owns a dog, Arthur who also becomes Nell's companion in a way as Nell spends a lot of time with Arthur and takes him on walks. New yummy mummy Annabel has entered the group since Nell has been in America and she seems to be asserting her dominance over Nell’s best friend Fiona, who is completely enamoured with her. I may have to stop listening to this story because of that - even if I wished to continue - don't want all this bothering over volume levels.

And sometimes the author delivers that more and while you like the sequel, it’s not as good as the first book and maybe that’s because you loved the original so much that nothing could be as good or perhaps something has changed in your life that you didn’t need the book as much as you initially did. You could read it as a standalone book, as the beginning does a great recap of book one, yet there's loads more new content to laugh at and enjoy. Even though I knew from the start what may have been happening romance wise, it was still a satisfying read. When her business goes bust and her fiancé with it, Nell's happily-ever-after in California falls apart and she moves back to London to start over.
