2.0 out of 5 starsSorry Not Sorry
Reviewed in the United States on June 24, 2019
I didn't find anything funny or humorous about this book. It was more like mean girls, and a totally sad book. What a waste of my money. From now on when I read races from other writers, I'm for sure not going to but the book and waste my time as their only helping each other out. I was depressed from reading a sad book and wanted a funny romance to read to laugh and just enjoy. I didn't find anything funny about this book at all except maybe the cat. Ugh!
1.0 out of 5 starsNot funny, nothing good about it except the title

If I could give this 0 stars, I would. There is nothing redeeming about this book. It’s poorly written with crass characters and a predictable plot. I couldn’t bring myself to put it in the little free library in the neighborhood, because I can’t inflict it on someone else. It’s trying to be Bridget Jones, but fails miserably. Don’t waste your time.

Charlotte’s best friend is moving out, and now the house feels empty. And so does her life. She’s in a rut. So, when she finds this series of podcasts named ‘Sorry Not Sorry’, she is determined to get more out of life. What I really liked about Charlotte is that she could be any one of us. She wasn’t this super-thin super-unreal super-woman, but just a relatable person with recognizable problems.
It was never TOO bad, which was how I liked it. Just a broadening of her horizon. Spreading her wings. Pushing her boundaries. Flirting. Not saying no to everything. Small steps. And that started out with innocent things like calling a guy after asking his phone number. Later on, it gets a bit less innocent…
It says laugh-out-loud and yes, it was filled with humour, but no, I never laughed out loud. But I really enjoyed it. It was entertaining, easy-to-read, with a good flow, and I loved it! And it was surprising! Romantic comedies can be predictable, but this one definitely wasn’t!
Heat level 4 quite steamy
BTW I loved the little references to Gemma from ‘The Truth About Gemma Grey’.
3.0 out of 5 starsNot a funny roll around laughing tale.

I enjoyed this story. I did. But... it pushes a lot! of buttons.
I wouldn't classify it as a LOL romantic comedy. Far from it.
There are some really dark issues here. Being betrayed by your best friend, and having all your other friends rolling along with the narcissistic bitch who's causing the anguish? Getting involved with a married man (not knowing he was married)? Getting the sack for something you didn't do? ??? Where is the humour in all this?

I just couldnt get into this book. There were so many story lines, Charlotte and maddy, charlotte and bianca - who is harrys sister- harry is maddys fiance, charlotte and tansy, charlotte and adam, charlotte and myles. Myles and his wife, charlotte and sorry not sorry lady - who is myles wife, tansy and stalker, tansy and new boyfriend who is charlottes workmate. The neighbours. I found it unnecessarily busy and disjointed. And then i spent most of the book (90%?) with the leading man not being the leading man at all. so the end was rushed. It was nuts. Its probably just me, but it wasnt funny at all and was super busy - it could have been a book series with intersecting lives and been elaborated on.
If you read my reviews you already know that I read a lot and only write if I feel strongly about a book, either good or bad. I will say that I am not very fond of British books in general - they use common words only those from England would know and it is sometimes difficult to follow the story. I picked Sorry Not Sorry just from the description of a perfect laugh out loud romantic comedy. It is not. But....it IS a very good read about everyday life for a single semi-professional young woman, with all the struggles that come with relationships, both personal and professional. With some hiccups along the way, things work out the way they should. A little predictable, but a really good read.
This was such a fun book! It took me a bit to actually get into, but I ended up really enjoying it. It was very British which was fun. The setting of a hedge fund was quite interesting. The romance kept me guessing for a while longer than I thought it would. I liked the different plot lines that Sorry Not Sorry had going: Charlotte's dating life, Maddy's wedding, hedge fund drama, etc. Charlotte was a great main character - interesting, funny, and easy to empathize with. I really liked her, and wouldn't mind reading more about her. Good ending to the story! I think that this book really gave me a glimpse into what it's like to work at a hedge fund as a twenty something, and deal with dating life, and friends moving into different stages of life. It was quite interesting, and I will definitely be picking up more from Sophie Ranald in the future! 4 stars.
This was a good book, not necessarily something I'd recommend but still good. It always bothers me when a book is described as being 'hilarious' or 'laugh out loud funny'. Maybe my sense of humour is just different from the other people who felt that those words described the book perfectly. I thought they were a few funny moments but that's it really. I might have even had a chuckle the odd time but I certainly didn't 'laugh out loud'. So, a nice story but that's it really...
This book isn't terrible, it just isn't good either. The author gets close to all the skills that make a chick-lit rom-com work but just isn't quite there with execution. Taken all the cliches and over used them, most of the twists end up being pointless & the ridiculous links towards the end of the book were predictable & irrelevant. I did not invest in Charlotte at all. From her awkward sex talk to her frequent comments relating everything to Brexit just for relevancy. Wouldn't recommend
5.0 out of 5 starsAnother brilliant book from this author

Brilliantly written, humorous and with relatable characters I want to know more about - and that’s before I even start on the cats. Really funny and intriguing insight into the world of high finance and hedge funds from the perspective of someone on the bottom rung of the ladder.
5.0 out of 5 starsLoved this - top level chick lit

I've read (and enjoyed) all Sophie's books, but really really loved her last, The Truth about Gemma Grey. So I was excited to buy this on the day of release, and overjoyed when I realised it was set in the same world, with some characters reappearing. It was like meeting up with old friends you didn't realise you missed! This is a worthy successor to Gemma: an incredibly enjoyable read that also made me think. I read it in one sitting, and loved it. Is it greedy to wish for more books in the same universe?
