    One thought on “The Temp”

    1. Standard fare Woman in her 20s sorts her romantic and professional life out Standard supporting cast of boozers and no hopers who also all seem to sort themselves out Quelle surprise Only difference being that the mid book crisi is a bit serious than most Rated MA for adult themes, sexual references, coarse language and drug use 2.5 5

    2. When I was first out of University, I took on several temporary jobs to make ends meet Whilst this is a common job for many, it s a working practice very rarely touched upon in chick lit novels Whilst many of the genre s characters only seem to be at work temporarily and have time for meeting friends for lunch at any and all times of the day, the transient nature of work isn t touched upon.In this aspect, Serena Mackesy s The Temp comes a little closer to reality than many chick lit novels The t [...]

    3. I wish I could be less middle of the road with my ratings This was easy to read, except for all the UK slang I don t know, but the book was quite meandering, the narrator s life interspersed with lots of work situations that we never came back to again she s a temp, after all The ending had a nice twist to it, but on the whole, nothing makes me want to recommend this book to anyone else.

    4. I do like a candy floss book every now and again, but this was candy floss gone wrong The parts about temp life were funny and enjoyable, but the other parts, especially parts which touched on serious subjects I won t say what because I don t want to spoil anything were either meh or just didn t fit in with the lighthearted feel of the rest of the book.

    5. This is really smart and funny book I kinda knew how it would end and the gypsy part was pretty annoying and really unnecessary but there s just so much hilarious stuff here, that I have to give this four staffs plus the name thing was pretty neat.

    6. Superior chicklit written by a woman who seems to understand the sheer, grinding misery of office life Populated with some realistic and non glamorous characters although also with an ex boy band member, which is not something most of us have in our life.

    7. I read The Temp many years ago and really enjoyed it An extremely funny and well observed novel, I have been a temp in the past and this is a brilliant portrayal of temp life and the office culture.

    8. Brilliant, funny and romantic if you like Four Weddings and Notting Hill, you ll enjoy this Made me all choked up.
