    1 thought on “Venus Envy”

    1. Started this book thinking it was time for a good dose of chick lit. I was wrong. I've read some of Louise Bagshawe's books previously and enjoyed them in that sort of light hearted, not much thinking involved sort of way. But this one was different. Maybe my mood wasn't right for it, or maybe it was something else, but I really didn't enjoy this. I disliked it so much that I didn't even make it a quarter of the way through it, not even close in fact. The main character, whose name I can't even [...]

    2. This was the first book I read of Louise Bagshawe and I absolutely loved it. It's great to see how the characters rise up from adversity and face challanges, coming out stronger than ever. Women power! YES!

    3. Better than Glitz and Glamour but still forgettable, in fact I've already forgotten what the ending was. There's something a little dry and too conservative or lacking in spark in this author's books for me. I always end up buying chick lit in charity shops thinking I'm in for a fun read but I want more from my chick lit, something a little more.rable! Is that so perverse?!

    4. This was an easy holiday read, but I'm too old and too married for this kind of thing now - the main character is selfish and irritating, and while she's trying to be self-deprecating, she just comes across as obtuse and self-pitying.

    5. I'm a fan of Louise bagshawes other books but like others before he I found this book incredibly predictable.The main character Alex was a moany, self criticising character. Not only the way she spoke to herself was downgrading but how the hell could she let other people speak to her like that. I wanted to give up on this book so many times but refused too due to my own stubbornness and also my previous experience of books from this author.The minute the main love interest came in you could see [...]

    6. Good, an easy read. Predictable. Everything that happened, I could see it happening before the narrator told us. There were times that the MC grew very annoying and whiny, indulging herself in a pity party. But, it was exactly what I wanted when I wanted an easy read.

    7. The only Louise Bagshawe book I've ever been decidedly disappointed by and felt no desire to reread. Here her style is very different from her other books and unfortunately not for the better. The main character was much too much like Bridget Jones for my liking.

    8. Started: Feb 25/07Finished: Mar 2/07---One of the reviews on the back of this book says that the author has the blockbuster formula and she's not afraid to use it. As someone who's trying to plot a bestseller myself, I thus read this book with great interest.Sure enough, the book starts out with the MC's life in relative tatters - 27, unmarried, fat and unattractive, sharing a flat with three goddesses, one of whom is the MC's own horribly mean-spirited sister, unemployed and virtually unemploya [...]

    9. Again, this one was one of her earlier titles I believe. Written in 1988 it was okay but not fantastic. There are elements of her writing that I really enjoy and I'm sure she must have a really great sense of humour as I love the way some of the things made me laugh out loud. But on the whole, this book was too much to formula. I found it way too predictable and at times was thinking, oh hurry up and just get to the end.I know what's going to happen. And it did happen that way. Alex has a best f [...]

    10. At last, I have completed Venus Envy. I should say I liked it. The story is narrated in first person diction. This book is like sharing a woman’s feelings. Yes, Alexandra a bit jealous of any other woman who have good boy friend to share with. I did not like her hankering after semus, who is a bastard flirt with anyone he fancies and hate tom when she supposed to spport. However, her artistic talent proved right at the end. Will she marry Tom is still question in case if she finds something re [...]

    11. Although I have enjoyed this author in the past, I wasn't that blown away by this book. It's a typical chic-lit romance - Alex has no job, lives off her parents hand-outs and has no boyfriend. All she wants to be is a sculptor, but no-one else wants to buy her work. She takes a job her mum arranges and ends up having an affair with her boss, which means there are lots of misunderstandings and tantrums when the real man of her dreams turns up, in old friend Tom. The requisite happy ending is here [...]

    12. Do not read this if you are feeling down or depressed, do not read this if you are feeling sorry for yourself. A long long story of Alex, a girl with an inferiority complex, stuck with a wicked spiteful sister who is everything she is not, a wall flower (of sorts) at 27. who seems to somehow manage to bungle up every thing she does.r whom nothing ever turns out righta sobbing, sorry, sad life. This review would have been even sadder if not for the last few chapterswhere she finally finds her wor [...]


    14. this novel may be passed off as another one of those ""chick-lit" novels but compared to the other novels of this genre that i've read, i totally related to its lead character. in fact, there were moments that it hit so close to home that it seemed autobiographicalis book strengthened my belief that there is a guy out there who will love you for who you really are, flaws and all, and that sometimes, what you deem perfect is not what will make you happy. read this book on a Saturday morning befor [...]

    15. I have only one word for this: meh.It started out really good. The plot started out decent, and I was really looking forward to getting to know the characters better, and watch the plot unfold.But the MC's constant, pessimistic monologue just became too annoying after a while.There were a few scenes, that actually got me eager, but it quickly stopped, and became that boring monologue again. It reminds me of a bad attempt on doing something like Bridget Jones diary.It's a decent read if you're re [...]

    16. I usually love this author, but I couldn't get past the heroine in this book. Instead of the usual leads in her books, who are strong women who improve their situation by working hard instead of sitting back and accepting it, Alex spent the whole book whinging and whining that everything wasn't handed to her on a silver platter. A disappointing read, but not bad enough to put me off reading more of her books.

    17. alex wilde lives with her sister and two other housemates. she gets a job and starts having an affair with her boss. she looses her job because she wont sleep with seamus anymore. she then gets a job in an art shop. the ending is good.

    18. I remember reading this years ago and liking it enough to keep it around for a re-read one day. Having just read it again I found I didn't really like it very much at all. Maybe I'm just too old for this type of book now. Rating it 3 stars because I obviously enjoyed it the first time around.

    19. This book was just awful. The main character was obnoxious and the plot was unbelievably predictable and cheesy. And the end, ugh! Several face-palm ensued.

    20. I'm on a Louise Bagshawe reading binge and loving it. This has been my least favourite so far but still an enjoyable read.

    21. The worse Bagshawe book I have read. Boring plodding story. Kept waiting for it to start didn't like the characters or writing style at all.

    22. Fluffy chick lit, with a dollop of humour. By the way, page 267: "He was all smiles. Like the crocodile in Alice". Think the author was thinking of Peter Pan

    23. Really easy to read but I found myself annoyed at all the characters including the main character.

    24. Should have read it when I bought it in 1999 ;-). Then I would have had the same age. Good read but doesn't get as good as Bridget Jones.
