I was skeptical when a friend passed this book on, but it definitely exceeded my expectations! A very fun and funny read with a satisfying ending.

I really loved this book! About halfway through I kept thinking it would make a great movie (a chick-flick of course!) The author does a great job making sure you know alot about each character and spends time looking at things from each of their perspectives until it all comes together in the end. I found I couldn't wait to see how it would all turn out, and I was pleasantly surprised with the ending. A great read!

I've spent hours trying to get the coffee ring stain off of the front cover, but it just isn't working.

A romantic comedy about friends, lovers and neighbors, in pursuit of happiness, fame and lasting love. A "laugh out loud" book!

This is one of my favorite chick-lit books. The writing style is refreshing and the characters are vivid. I wasn't as enamored of Jewell's other books but this one has something special.

A wonderful fun and girlie read from the beginning to the end. I easily fell in love with each character and was able to keep their relationships to one another straight - made me fall in love with brit chick lit.

Taking in place in one building in London, with a cast of characters that are so woven together it makes the stories smart and a pure joy to read. As they intermix and mingle, it made for scenes that made me laugh completely out loud. In the basement are two men who are looking for a third flatmate and in walks Jem, a female looking for her dream come true - man that is. The first floor houses a couple who have been dating for more than 15 years with very little ups or downs. Finally, on the second level a very beautiful woman lives who has her eyes on one of the men in the building, while another has been pinning after her since she arrived 5 years earlier.

The book was definitely a journey and although there were times where I may have been able to guess the outcome, I still enjoyed the road the book took to get to the end. As I can't spoil the book - I will have to say that the ending was abrupt and I can't believe that a sequel has just been released this year! The review for After the Party will be posted tomorrow.

A read that I would recommend to those who may not always read brit chick lit, as I completely enjoyed this one.
