This is a review of the 2000 book 'HoneyMoon' by Amy Jenkins, an author who is also known for being the creator of the cult BBC2 TV series 'This Life.' I have had this book on the to read shelf for literally years and it just did not appeal to me even when I was getting married for some reason. Now I have read it I can share the reasons behind my negative title. About The book follows the aptly titled Honey who is about to get married to a man (Ed) she thinks she loves but is not entirely convinced. The reason for her doubt is because she once met a man for one night called Alex who she believes is the love of her life and the one who got away. He lives ... Read the complete review

This is Amy Jenkins first novel, she also wrote the hit series This Life but I must have been the only person who never watched it I tuned in once and I couldn't keep up with the storyline even though most of my friends raved about it and constantly filled me in on what was going on etc. This was about the same as this book. I kept having to go back a few pages as I constantly felt I was missing some important details and parts of the story out and who characters were and how they were involved in the plot of the book. Spoiler alert! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This is a story about a girl called Honeymoon or Honey for short ... Read the complete review

This book really gets you away from real life, this is not the sort of book I would usually read but I wanted a bit of escapism, and this was the book for the job. I suppose part of the reason I picked it up in the first place was because of its bright pink or blue cover, it was hard to miss!!! On reading the back I discovered that it was written by the creator of 'This Life' which I loved...so that was it, sold! The book is about a woman called Honey who is about to get married. The story starts on her hen night, she starts to tell her mates how she met 'the love of her life' 7 years ago, it was a one night thing but she thinks about him a lot. ... Read the complete review

When I picked up this book in the shop and saw it was by the creator of "This Life" I thought "Brilliant, I'm going to really enjoy this!" How wrong. I have nothing against things being different but when that difference causes disappointment, like this book did, I wish people would just leave things alone! I thought the storyline about a girl about to get married, reminiscing to her Hen-Friends about the love of her life showed great promise and when, round about the middle of the book, she met the love of her life on her honeymoon, I couldn't put the book down. Unfortunately that was about as good as it got, in fact it went decidedly down Read the complete review

This is Amy Jenkin's first novel. Judging by the blurb on the back, I thought it would be very amusing, and the sort of book that you cant put down. Something along the lines of Jane Green or Marian Keyes. Unfortunately I was disappointed. Its not a bad book, but just not as riveting as i was expecting. It starts off quite well, the characters are well-developed. The main character is a young twenty-something who is on the verge of getting married. The book starts off on her hen night. She has a bit of a 'tempestuous' relationship with her fiance. However, they manage to get it together and make it down the aisle. All seems to be going well until she ... Read the complete review
