She made the book a real joy to listen to and she has definitely been added to on my favorite narrators list! But this book definitely reminded me of the things that I had laid out and thought back to where I used to think I'd end up ten years later and then ended up laughing because now I can't even imagine going by that plan. There is nothing out there that’s I’ve found so far in literature for women like us and when I saw this book, I thought ‘about time! I didn't like any of Nell's friends because they only wanted her when they needed something from her and Fiona wouldn't even listen to her until she finds out that her daughter Izzy is being bullied by Annabel's daughter.

I really enjoyed this format and I think it worked well to situate the reader in the unfolding story. Together they begin to help each other heal their aching hearts, cope with the loss of the lives they had planned, and push each other into new adventures and joy. Interspersed between the narrative are references to Nell’s entertaining podcast, along with her notebook entries on what she is grateful for each day. Celia Walden, Telegraph The story of Nell Stevens’ struggle through her imperfect, messy life doesn’t just make brilliant fiction, it’s turning into a cultural revolution! Todėl nors ir nesikankinau ir visai džiaugiuosi perskaičiusi, nes ir juokiausi, ir pritariamai linksėjau, turbūt būčiau tokia knyga labiau pasimėgavusi prieš kokius du-tris metus, kai nebuvau skaičiusi jos pradininkių.I loved her friendships with Cricket, Fiona and Arthur and I got so caught up in her life that I was telling my husband about her antics as if she was a real person. It's New year's day and Nell is moving half way across the world back to London, her tail between her legs after a failed engagement and business.

Or maybe, ‘you have to read this book’ when their childless friends to try to talk to them about their struggles. I wonder if I am alone in my feelings on this book or whether there are other women out there who feel the same way as me? Tiešām jauka grāmata, kas atgādina visiem zināmo, ka visiem mēdz sāpēt un tas, ka dzīve neizklāj paklāju uz tevis gribētās takas ir tikai normāli. PLEASE NOTE: The publication date for Confessions of a Forty-Something F**k- Up has been pushed back to 31st December 2020. Yorkshire born and raised, Alexandra lives in London with her Californian husband and their Bosnian rescue dog.Nell feels left behind and drastic measures see her taking up residence in a small flat in a shared house arrangement. This is the one book I’ve found which is supposed to be about women like me, only to find out that it isn’t. Biography: Alexandra Potter is the bestselling author of romantic comedy fiction novels in the UK, including Me and Mr Darcy. And I could relate to Nell quite a lot which is a credit to Potter writing her character really well.

I did have some issues with the portrayal of childless women but it is comedy/light entertainment and I don't want to discuss my views here.This was carefully handled by the author, again linking in to the overall message that this book seems to convey we must embrace life and do with it what we can, with what we have. Facing a downward spiral all too quickly, Nell Stevens must deal with the demise of business, her impending marriage and the loss of her life in sunny California. We see a possible love interest develop through friendship and support, we cringe as Nell is taken for a ride with a poor love match and our hearts break as she works to understand what went wrong with fiance. je nešťastná a stratená, ale počas roka objavuje aj pozitívne veci a zisťuje, že život sa nezastavil, tak prečo by mala ona? Friends that I used to have but don't have anymore and didn't even think about them for years until today and all I remember is all the fun that we used to have and nothing else.

Alongside the love story is the wonderful unlikely friendship that sparks between Nell and Cricket, an elderly lady who is just a marvelous character! A common theme, hashtag 'live your best life' hashtag 'gluten free brownies rock' etcetera etcetera (I take some poetic license there).

Vėlgi, suvokiu, kad gal ne man kalbėti, bet skaitant erzino pastovus pagrindinės veikėjos požiūris į savo išvaizdą. That's certainly the case for our forty-something protagonist, Nell, and we have a front-row seat to her grand rhapsody. Najlepšou postavou knihy však nie je hlavná hrdinka, ale Cricket, s ktorou sa zoznámi počas robenia rozhovoru. Told with laugh out loud humor and the perfect wit Confessions of a Forty-Something F**k Up is the perfect book for any woman (or man) whether young or old that feels like she isn’t enough or in the right place in her life.
