    Let me start by saying I love Lisa Jewell I read Ralph s Party the moment it was published in 1999, and have devoured her novels since She s my favourite author writing in fiction in what many term the chick lit genre though the label is one I have reservations about the only one I regularly read these days Much of what she excels at is here the empathy for her characters, the compelling storytelling, the pacy dialogue however, given what she s already published, her

    The blurb really doesn t do this book justice really gripping Couldn t put it down.

    Firstly do not pay attention to the synopsis or the cover of this book Both covers they have for it do not do the book justice There is one that is a bit chic litty and the other quite contemporary And I didn t find the book either of these genre s certainly not what I expected The synopsis on the back also does not do the book justice so if you pick it up just for the blurb, then you will be surprised like I was that the blurb barely touched the subject matters To put it

    I have not read a Lisa Jewell book for years and so when I was asked to review her latest novel The Making Of Us I couldn t wait to start this as reading reviews on this book it seems opinions are straight down the middle so I decided I needed to put my two pence worth in The story follows three characters, Lydia, Dean and Robyn who all have something significant in common They are all living their lives and feel as though something is missing in their lives and one by one

    Lisa Jewell is becoming one of my favorites This is the third book of hers that I absolutely loved The Making of Us is about Lydia, Dean, and Robyn, three young people who have never met each other and always believed that they were only children Their lives are forever changed when they learn that not only are they are the products of a sperm donor, but they have living brothers and sisters, and that their father wants to meet all of them Jewell builds the action slowly until

    Even though it was Jewell s earlier work, I can t forgive The Making of Us It has everything I dislike about British Chick lit It s just too shallow to talk about heavy subject such as sperm donation and life itself These are what I didn t like about this novel Main characters are all so beautiful Their love interests are soooo beautiful As if that s the most important quality of human beings A selfless nice lady who helps a dying stranger takes care of herself and is seen as cla

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here It is pretty clear from the beginning that this book features a plot that involves a number of individuals from disparate walks of life who eventually come to the inevitable conclusion that they are linked through a sperm donor I found none of the characters to be particularly interesting and I eventually just put the book down and did not return to it After 150 pages I just wasn t interested enough to

    Great read took a bit of sorting the characters, but well done to the author I liked all the characters in this book, however, I kind of wanted of whathappened after the end of the novel sequel to come maybe however, might drag it out a bit if that was to happen This is only the second book of Lisa Jewell I have read will definitely the rest of her novels.

    This book will take you through various emotions, and kind of get you teary eyed.It s all about the concept of a family, and the author has described different families, the 3 kids, Lydia, Dean and Robyn grew up in.Its beautiful to read about the relationship between Maggie and Daniel, especially their time in the hospiceThat feeling of emptiness or something lacking in your life, is what makes the 3 kids go back and find outabout themselves. Loved reading it
