I’m so glad that I ‘left my comfort zone’ and purchased this Romantic comedy. Usually, I seek out a good thriller, but the title of this book intrigue..Show More »d me, so I thought what the heck I’ll give it a try. I’m thrilled that I did, because From Notting Hill With Love...Actually was such a fun read/listen. If you are a fan of the movies Notting Hill, Love Actually, and Bridget Jones Diary (just to name a few great chick flicks), you will adore Ali McNamara’s debut novel. I also think that Finty Williams is the perfect narrator for McNamara’s book; she brought everyone and everything to life, and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Notting Hill. Having said that, I longed for more description of the area – the market, the stores, and some of the other homes in Notting Hill, but this is just me as Notting Hill happens to be my latest obsession.
Overall, I was very impressed with both the author and the narrator so I decided to join this great duo on another adventure – Bon Voyage! I’m off to New York...
I had so much enjoyment and fun with this book. I found myself eager to catch up on the next installment each morning.
It was so funny in pl..Show More »aces and took me on a tour of NYC with surprises around many corners.
English Scarlett's best friend is "out there" Oscar, Sean the boring boyfriend back in the UK, and Jamie is the handsome new "friend" - yes its quite typical chick-lit but it does have some great twists and turns.
With all the various movie and TV references, movie stars, NY landmarks and shops, you feel very familiar with the book.
Cant say much more - dont want to even hint on the big twist but I highly recommend this story, especially if you are planning a trip to NY.
