My dream novel

AdvantagesA great light read that will have you hooked

DisadvantagesIts a disappointment when you get to the end

"...that was when I started 31 Dream Street. *~*Lisa Jewell*~* Lisa was previously a secretary and when she was made redundant in 1996 she received a bet from her friend Yasmin to fulfil her dream of writing a novel. Lisa was reluctant to set about this task as a lack of time, money and knowledge was holding her back, but when Yasmin bet her a meal that she wouldn't do it she felt she had something to prove and set about making her dream come true.

~* Dream Read! *~

AdvantagesFunny, Well written

Disadvantagesnone

"31 Dream Street is a chick-lit book by Lisa Jewell. The book was released in the United Kingdom in 2008 and so is fairly recent. The book is four hundred and eighty pages long. You can buy a copy of this book from Amazon for a price of £4.39 which I think is good value for money. Plot: Even though they have lived across the road from each other for many years, suprisingly Toby and Leah have never actually meant. Leah has always thought that Toby's ..." Read review

Quick review of 31 Dream Street - Lisa Jewell

"As an avid reader, I know I have been impressed by a book which I can remember the title and author of a week later! And I loved this book! It didn't take long for me to feel as though I lived on Dream Street, and the characters came to life so quickly - no checking back in pages before to remind myself of who was who! This is the first Lisa Jewell book I have read - it was actually the cover that caught my eye! (Note to self: never say 'never judge a book by its cover'!). And it certainly won't be my last.

31 Dream Street

AdvantagesInteresting.Heart Warming. Funny in parts. Fairly unpredictable. 'Page turner'

DisadvantagesNot her best novel. Becoming easier to predict outcomes with each book.

"31 Dream Street is the story of several individuals brought together after applying to a newspaper advertisement for 'creative people' to live in a house in London. A story which is funny in parts, sad in others and always thought provoking, but not heavy in any way. As is usual with a Lisa Jewell novel, you find yourself caring about the characters, as they could each represent someone you know. You become involved in their lives, eagerly turning ..."

Manufacturer's product description

In a rambling house, failed poet Toby Dobbs has created a refuge for people who need one. But when a quiet tragedy and an unwelcome letter interrupt Toby's sedate existence, he needs his housemates to find some direction in their lives. Leah Pilgrim has watched the tenants of the house over the road for several years, and when the owner of 31 Silversmith Road asks her for advice, he opens the door not only to the eccentric building across the street - but to five lives in various stages of turmoil. Can Toby and Leah help these misfits to grow up, move on and move out? And in doing so, can they make their own dreams come true?
