Jane Rosenal's entrée to the world of significant relationships begins with her older brother's older woman. The bewildered teenager's naive understanding and disbelief as the relationship disintegrates before her eyes should have served as a mighty warning on the perils of the mating game. But, hey, what's a little knowledge without bitter experience? As Jane grows into, and out of, a career in publishing, so she melts into, and out of, a series of pointless affairs. Throw in a few life- shattering personal experiences along the way, a near- disastrous encounter with a self-help manual, How to Meet and Marry Mr Right, and finally, Jane learns the secret that has eluded her for so long.

Before I started reading this book, I read some reviews on the bookcrossing-website. Nobody seemed to like this book. Well, I can understand why; it isn't a standard chicklit, it has no climax and Mr. Right doesn't show up until the last chapter.... but I really, really loved this book. I can't explain why. Maybe you should try it for yourself and see if you like it.

Heb het boek nog wel gelezen voordat het straks meegaat in de grote-Gouda-thema-release-dierendag-actie. :-) Vond het een mooi boek, ik verwachtte een chick-lit, maar die naam vind ik niet passen. Het voelt gewoon niet als een luchtige chick-lit. Ik vond zeker het stuk waarin ze opeens afstand neemt en over haar kanker spreekt heel mooi geschreven. Alsof het opeens over iemand anders gaat. Mocht ze willen. :-( Ja, met plezier en aandacht gelezen!
