I'm in love with this book. That's not an understatement, I've read it a few times already, and every time I finish I have to resist the urge to pick it straight back up and read it again. I've always been the stereotypical woman who has swooned appropriately at Romeo & Juliet so I picked this book up thinking it would be a fun modern re-write that I could forget about soon after. Turns out though that this was so much more - it went beyond the Shakespeare tale (and was the better for it) and mingled pastlives, romance, destiny, soulmates, history, crime, mystery, adventure, betrayals and all the fun stuff to make a book that I want to re-read immediately. ...

'Juliet' was an absolutely delightful read. It is written by Anne Fortier, and is a chunky book, at just over 450 pages long. 'Juliet' is a story that makes us forget the 'Romeo and Juliet' of Shakespeare, and tells us to believe that there is an old and mystical story behind the classical love story, that is quite different from the famous version that we all know, but is yet so similar.

Anne Fortier's Juliet uses a popular formula for crossover chick lit/historical fiction; a young woman currently going through a rough time delves into her family history and unearths dark secrets and, quite likely, a love interest along the way. It's a shame that she does because a good story is a good story no matter what convoluted and unlikely means you use to tell it and it appears that in this case, Fortier has found a cracking story and used a dull contemporary parallel plot to present it. Twenty-five year old twins Julie and Janice Jacobs were raised by their Aunt Rose in the States, having been orphaned as children in Italy. When Rose dies, Julie is ... Read the complete review

I was originally drawn to this book when I noticed that Kate Mosse (author of Labyrinth and my favourite author) had praised the novel. I bought this book after I had just finished my A-Level examinations. After taking English- literature and being forced to read classic after classic novel (although I did enjoy them) I wanted an easy read that I could sink my teeth into. This book proved just the thing I needed. The storyline is great but was not over complex and the writing style flowed and was easy to read. I read this book in two days as couldn't put it down soon after starting it. WHATS THE BOOK ABOUT (BLURB/SYNOPSIS): When Julie Jacobs ... Read the complete review
