Amazon.co.uk Review
Lisa Jewell lives in North London. While on holiday a friend made her a drunken bet: dinner at her favourite restaurant if she wrote three chapters of a novel. Just over a year later Ralph's Party was finished. In a similar style to Marian Keyes' Rachel’s Holiday, Ralph’s Party introduces the residents of 31 Almanac Road, a three-storey Edwardian house in South London. The house, divided into flats and its inhabitants are the focus of this contemporary, romantic novel. Ralph and Smith, who live in the basement flat are beginning to doubt that they will ever find a suitable flatmate until Jemima comes along. In fact, Jem finds herself more than suitable when both Ralph and Smith fall for her. Karl and Siobhan live in the flat above and they have been together in total happiness for fifteen years. That was until Cheri, the cold, calculating but very sexy lady in the top flat sets her sights on Karl.
Lisa Jewell’s fast paced, well-observed and thoroughly engrossing first novel has been well worth that bet for dinner. --Pat Naylor

Synopsis
Meet the residents of 31 Almanac Road Ralph and Smith are flatmates and best mates until, that is, the gorgeous Jemima moves in. And suddenly they're bickering about a lot more than who drank the last beer. Of course, Jem knows that one of them is the man for her but is it Ralph or Smith? Upstairs, Karl and Siobhan have been happily unmarried for fifteen years until, that is, Cheri moves into the flat above theirs. Cheri's got her eye on Karl and doesn't see why she should let a little thing like his girlfriend stand in her way Sooner or later its all got to come to a head and what better place for tears and laughter, break ups and make ups than Ralph's party?

I read it on my way to Mainz, It´s quite a funny read, I like the different views a lot! Sometimes, the story is a bit too constructed, but all in all it´s a lovely different book!

Hey, I took this book.

I remember i read a good review for this book here at BC but I had totally forgotten what it was all about. I realised it's about people in London - huhu my favourite place in the world! :-))

Will read it soon (I hope)


Unfortunately te heavy rainstorm affected my rucksack as well. It was inside but got a bit wet nonetheless. Only very slightly, though. Hardly visible.

I just realised I posted the same message two times. Must be a BC problem.

Anyway, the book's brilliant. I really enjoyed it!
