    One thought on “The Real Thing”

    1. I know that this book will p off many readers modern readers, that is The main character is hard to like, cheating is sort of involved, everything is mad and chaotic and it s like being on a rollercoaster you can t get off BUT reading it for what it is, I think it s full of charm, wit and sharply observed characters and situations It s just that these days readers have a thing about heroines like Tessa and she s far less acceptable now than in 1996 when the book was written I really liked it I d [...]

    2. I have enjoyed Catherine Alliott s books before but not this one It was meant to be a frothy chick lit, that provided laughs but I could not be bothered with most of the characters and the positions they found themselves in notably Tessa It was a stereotyped image of Londoners holidaying in the old ancestral home in the Scottish Highlands It was hard to find credible artist Patrick s home, immaculately furnished inside and out, staffed with maids, yet only lived in part of the year At over 500 p [...]

    3. Fizzles a little by the end, but mostly enjoyed this Catherine Alliott has a very distinctive style for chick lit Her characters always seem to be a little posh , and Tess here is no exception A married mother of two, she has always held a torch for her first boyfriend the one her father did not approve of and tore her apart from Years later, on a family holiday, she is reunited with the ex and it seems he still has feelings for her also Tess is honestly a bit of a twit I can t say I could relat [...]

    4. I gave it three stars but I think that I enjoyed it than that Plot a little rediculous and motivation not really convincing but some parts had me laughing out loud Priceless Theme is family dynamics and romantic choices Tessa Hamilton is our anti heroine David, the barrister, and Patrick, the artist, are the love interest Sister Laura, Reverand Ian Fergusson and his brother Robert, mother Rachel, cousin Penny and neighbor Madeleine provide the dynamics Oh and there is also Willie Tessa seems a [...]

    5. This was one of my light summer reads The writing style was witty funny, atypical of the chick lit genre It was smooth sailing until I reached the last few chapters where the ridiculous plot twists made me want to throw it out the window Tessa, the protagonist is annoying at best, especially when she goes into her exaggerated, self obsessed and tedious thought processes And is it really okay to use the word Negro any It was a little detail in passing the book was written in 1996 less sensitive t [...]

    6. Not the best Catherine Alliot book The main storyline, reliving the moments with your first crush, keeps you truly occupied She didn t need all the turns to the plot in the last hunderd pages The story could do without the is he really my father episode Although all in all I would say it is an okay read

    7. Some of Catherine Alliott s books I have really enjoyed, but this book was not one those I really struggled with the characters, they just weren t very likable and then there was a really creepy element to the end.

    8. I don t know what the author is thinking of but Tessa is a whiner and a bitch that treats her husband like sh t And she thinks her dad is a bully She should look in the mirror On top of that, she lies to and cheats on her husband Ugh

    9. I don t know how to describe this book I started off thinking it was going to go nowhere, but it does give you some surprises.

    10. Even though I disagree with a solid amount of the subject matter sorry but cheating is never okay it was an enjoyable read

    11. tykk sin, mutta aikaa on kulunut enk kaikkea muista mutta ihan jees juoni, ei ihan arvattava etennk n kaikkia sukulaisuuskiemuroita ei osannut odottaa.

    12. Really loved this book, did not want to put it down, so funny, and well written, loved the charecter Willie, ans the children, Clemmie and Hugo, glad there not mine.

    13. Slow paced read got bored quite a few times with it I m new to her books this was the first one of Catherine s I ve read
