The Wedding Girl Reviews

    Jan 03, 2011

    it's really weird to me that like every single negative review of this book focuses on the "agenda" of featuring gay characters that don't all just die of AIDS or repent their sinning ways. people also complain a lot about the "swears". neither one of those things really bothered me. i...

    I am a fan of Sophie Kinsella's books, so when I found out that she was also writing as Wickham, I wanted to take a look. This was my first Wickham book and it was definitely different. Kinsella's books a fun and flighty, romantic comedies with little edge. I've often likened them to m...

    I pulled this off a library shelf on impulse, expecting a light, fun read. Within a chapter, I had a feeling of foreboding. The heroine was flighty, immature, and not terribly bright, her fiance was stubbornly blind, and her mother was atrocious. I hated these people. I'd accidentally ...

    Warning: this isn't a chick-lit review. This book is a romance, written under Sophie Kinsella's pseudo. Milly is a twenty-eight-year-old woman, just a few short days of getting married, who wants everyone to love her. And then the wedding photographer shows up with his seemingly re...

    Is it me or do Wickham's main characters all seem like the same girl with a different name? She's slightly loopy and harbours some secret about herself that the guy is always completely clueless to. I didn't love this book. I didn't hate it. It was just "meh." Plus, there were a few re...

    As I read this book I kept thinking back to a communications class I took in college and Michael Medved. He did a study questioning whether media shaped the future of society with its messages or whether it merely reflected what existed already within society. I truly believe that ...

    Engaged to Simon - who is wealthy, serious, and believes her to be perfect - she is facing the biggest and most elaborate wedding imaginable. Her mother has it planned to the finest detail, from the massive marquee to the sculpted ice swans filled with oysters. Her dreadful secret is l...

    This is a really good read and I'd have given it a five but I didn't care at all for the leading man, Simon. The way he was described he seems to be something of a short, stocky, nasty-tempered and controlling childish brat. This doesn't make me hope that he'll end up with Milly. In fa...

    As usual with the Wickham books: so many characters so much drama so unnecessary secrets I'm glad this melodrama is over. (Somewhere between 1 and 2 stars.) ...

    It was just OK, got a little too senti for a Sophie Kinsella style, but was a welcome break and liked it :) ...

    For something I thought was going to be fluffy chick lit, I was pleasantly surprised at how much depth there was to this book. (don't get me wrong; it's not Proust or anything). Firstly let me say I get annoyed by 'literature snobs' who look down their noses at the 'chick lit' genre. ...

    When I think of reading a Sophie Kinsella book, I normally imagine something light-hearted, funny and definitely entertaining. Now I completely understand the concept of branching out and writing different types of books under a pseudonym so I wasn't expecting something like her other ...

    The biggest problem with Madeleine Wickham is that I continue to expect her to be Sophia Kinsella. While the two are technically the same person, each time I dive into a work published under the name Wickham I find myself missing the charm of a Kinsella book. It's become clear to me th...

    "It was ok" properly describes my feelings for this book. I was expecting something a little bit lighter in tone but it was a bit of a downer. There just wasn't much happiness in the book. It was more like one of those depressing indie movies that focuses on how shit relationships c...

    After reading several "heavy" reads, I was looking for something really lighthearted and frivolous. Wow. This book is certainly frivolous, but to the point of stupidity. There was nothing smart, funny or interesting about it. I tried several times to stick with it, figuring it had to g...

    So far this is my favorite of Sophie Kinsella writing as Madeleine Wickham. The book according to her more serious style when she writes with her real name has a few brush-strokes of sadness here and there, but overall the story is gripping, it has interesting turns and some unexpected...

    This is the first book I've read by Sophie Kinsella writing as Madeleine Wickham and I was a bit nervous about what to expect. I absolutely love the Shopaholic series and had heard these books had a different writing style so was worried I would be disappointed by this book but I was w...

    Well, that was a waste of my time. I usually enjoy reading Kinsella's books, but this one was just bad. Really bad. As bad as Me after You. Do yourselves a favor and DON'T read it. Ever. ...

    If you take it as chick lit, it's alright. It's not the best written nor proof read. The plot is just a bit stretched. ...

    An audacious target, as there are plenty of topics in the book: sincerity, boredom and routine in couples, homosexuality (quite a delicate matter some twenty years ago...) weddings and their magnitude, relationships between people of different ages. The characters, at least at first si...

    not a typical sophie kinsella book. because she wrote it under her real name ,I think she gave it an original touch of her in it. the thing I love most about it she almost gave importance to all of the character in this book, their back stories are amazing so can everybody can relate a...

    Recently I was explaining to someone my division of chick lit into two distinct parts, older and younger, and how much I prefer the older segment (and yes, I know the phrase "chick lit" is now considered gauche, but there's not good substitute, plus I think the people upset about it we...

    This is my first Madeleine Wickham book and I was not disappointed. I like her style a little better than that of Sophie Kinsella (and I love Sophie Kinsella!). It's still mindless chic-lit fluff, but I felt it was a touch more mature than her Kinsella-style writing. I enjoyed this boo...

    In The Wedding Girl, Milly Havill is set to marry Simon Pinnacle. Just days before the wedding an event from Milly's past comes back to haunt her. A chance encounter leads to the revelation of secrets from Milly's past. As Milly deals with the repercussions, her friends and family are ...

    it's really weird to me that like every single negative review of this book focuses on the "agenda" of featuring gay characters that don't all just die of AIDS or repent their sinning ways. people also complain a lot about the "swears". neither one of those things really bothered me. i...

    I am a fan of Sophie Kinsella's books, so when I found out that she was also writing as Wickham, I wanted to take a look. This was my first Wickham book and it was definitely different. Kinsella's books a fun and flighty, romantic comedies with little edge. I've often likened them to m...

    I pulled this off a library shelf on impulse, expecting a light, fun read. Within a chapter, I had a feeling of foreboding. The heroine was flighty, immature, and not terribly bright, her fiance was stubbornly blind, and her mother was atrocious. I hated these people. I'd accidentally ...

    Warning: this isn't a chick-lit review. This book is a romance, written under Sophie Kinsella's pseudo. Milly is a twenty-eight-year-old woman, just a few short days of getting married, who wants everyone to love her. And then the wedding photographer shows up with his seemingly re...

    Is it me or do Wickham's main characters all seem like the same girl with a different name? She's slightly loopy and harbours some secret about herself that the guy is always completely clueless to. I didn't love this book. I didn't hate it. It was just "meh." Plus, there were a few re...

    This is a really good read and I'd have given it a five but I didn't care at all for the leading man, Simon. The way he was described he seems to be something of a short, stocky, nasty-tempered and controlling childish brat. This doesn't make me hope that he'll end up with Milly. In fa...

    So far this is my favorite of Sophie Kinsella writing as Madeleine Wickham. The book according to her more serious style when she writes with her real name has a few brush-strokes of sadness here and there, but overall the story is gripping, it has interesting turns and some unexpected...

    Well, that was a waste of my time. I usually enjoy reading Kinsella's books, but this one was just bad. Really bad. As bad as Me after You. Do yourselves a favor and DON'T read it. Ever. ...

    If you take it as chick lit, it's alright. It's not the best written nor proof read. The plot is just a bit stretched. ...

    An audacious target, as there are plenty of topics in the book: sincerity, boredom and routine in couples, homosexuality (quite a delicate matter some twenty years ago...) weddings and their magnitude, relationships between people of different ages. The characters, at least at first si...

    Purtroppo la storia non mi ha convinto per niente. Dalla trama poteva sembrare interessante, una diciottenne che impulsivamente decide di sposare un americano solo per aiutarlo a rimanere in Inghilterra in modo che possa continuare la sua storia con l'amore della sua vita, un altro uom...

    not a typical sophie kinsella book. because she wrote it under her real name ,I think she gave it an original touch of her in it. the thing I love most about it she almost gave importance to all of the character in this book, their back stories are amazing so can everybody can relate a...

    Recently I was explaining to someone my division of chick lit into two distinct parts, older and younger, and how much I prefer the older segment (and yes, I know the phrase "chick lit" is now considered gauche, but there's not good substitute, plus I think the people upset about it we...

    This is my first Madeleine Wickham book and I was not disappointed. I like her style a little better than that of Sophie Kinsella (and I love Sophie Kinsella!). It's still mindless chic-lit fluff, but I felt it was a touch more mature than her Kinsella-style writing. I enjoyed this boo...

    it's really weird to me that like every single negative review of this book focuses on the "agenda" of featuring gay characters that don't all just die of AIDS or repent their sinning ways. people also complain a lot about the "swears". neither one of those things really bothered me. i...

    I am a fan of Sophie Kinsella's books, so when I found out that she was also writing as Wickham, I wanted to take a look. This was my first Wickham book and it was definitely different. Kinsella's books a fun and flighty, romantic comedies with little edge. I've often likened them to m...

    I pulled this off a library shelf on impulse, expecting a light, fun read. Within a chapter, I had a feeling of foreboding. The heroine was flighty, immature, and not terribly bright, her fiance was stubbornly blind, and her mother was atrocious. I hated these people. I'd accidentally ...

    Warning: this isn't a chick-lit review. This book is a romance, written under Sophie Kinsella's pseudo. Milly is a twenty-eight-year-old woman, just a few short days of getting married, who wants everyone to love her. And then the wedding photographer shows up with his seemingly re...

    Is it me or do Wickham's main characters all seem like the same girl with a different name? She's slightly loopy and harbours some secret about herself that the guy is always completely clueless to. I didn't love this book. I didn't hate it. It was just "meh." Plus, there were a few re...

    As I read this book I kept thinking back to a communications class I took in college and Michael Medved. He did a study questioning whether media shaped the future of society with its messages or whether it merely reflected what existed already within society. I truly believe that ...

    Engaged to Simon - who is wealthy, serious, and believes her to be perfect - she is facing the biggest and most elaborate wedding imaginable. Her mother has it planned to the finest detail, from the massive marquee to the sculpted ice swans filled with oysters. Her dreadful secret is l...

    This is a really good read and I'd have given it a five but I didn't care at all for the leading man, Simon. The way he was described he seems to be something of a short, stocky, nasty-tempered and controlling childish brat. This doesn't make me hope that he'll end up with Milly. In fa...

    For something I thought was going to be fluffy chick lit, I was pleasantly surprised at how much depth there was to this book. (don't get me wrong; it's not Proust or anything). Firstly let me say I get annoyed by 'literature snobs' who look down their noses at the 'chick lit' genre. ...

    it's really weird to me that like every single negative review of this book focuses on the "agenda" of featuring gay characters that don't all just die of AIDS or repent their sinning ways. people also complain a lot about the "swears". neither one of those things really bothered me. i...

    I am a fan of Sophie Kinsella's books, so when I found out that she was also writing as Wickham, I wanted to take a look. This was my first Wickham book and it was definitely different. Kinsella's books a fun and flighty, romantic comedies with little edge. I've often likened them to m...

    I pulled this off a library shelf on impulse, expecting a light, fun read. Within a chapter, I had a feeling of foreboding. The heroine was flighty, immature, and not terribly bright, her fiance was stubbornly blind, and her mother was atrocious. I hated these people. I'd accidentally ...

    Warning: this isn't a chick-lit review. This book is a romance, written under Sophie Kinsella's pseudo. Milly is a twenty-eight-year-old woman, just a few short days of getting married, who wants everyone to love her. And then the wedding photographer shows up with his seemingly re...

    Is it me or do Wickham's main characters all seem like the same girl with a different name? She's slightly loopy and harbours some secret about herself that the guy is always completely clueless to. I didn't love this book. I didn't hate it. It was just "meh." Plus, there were a few re...

    Engaged to Simon - who is wealthy, serious, and believes her to be perfect - she is facing the biggest and most elaborate wedding imaginable. Her mother has it planned to the finest detail, from the massive marquee to the sculpted ice swans filled with oysters. Her dreadful secret is l...

    This is a really good read and I'd have given it a five but I didn't care at all for the leading man, Simon. The way he was described he seems to be something of a short, stocky, nasty-tempered and controlling childish brat. This doesn't make me hope that he'll end up with Milly. In fa...
