Slightly cliched and predictable, not Green's best...

Years ago I enjoyed reading several of Green's earlier books, so when I saw this for sale for a mere 25p - and on bogof! - at my local library, I snapped it up. Would the story telling be as good as I remembered? The premise A group of characters step out of their ordinary lives - and romances...

Excellent

It's the perfect light summer read

may be a bit too chick lit for some

There's something alluring about the idea of living by the seaside, I always wonder what it would be like to be able to stroll to the beach whenever you feel like it. My only experience of doing so was, briefly, off-season Morecambe which wasn't, sadly, quite as halycon as the world the...

“The Beach House”

published 28/12/2011

A great read with believable characters

Some parts predictable

This is the second book I have read by Jane Green, the first one being Girl Friday. I enjoyed this one as much as the first one. This book is set in America with Nan, an elderly eccentric woman being the main character. Nan has a large, once magnificent, house badly in need of repair but no money...

“ROOM FOR RENT?”

I bought this after reading the back of the book - as usual and I knew that this wasn't exactly the usual fluffy chick lit story, but since I like books by this author then I thought I would like to read something a little bit different. The story is about a older lady called Nan (makes a change...

“Been to the Beach House?”

published 05/12/2009

Pleasing storyline

Some characters a little weak.

I like to read books from various genres and sometimes there is nothing more appealing than a nice, easy-to-read chick-lit book, especially if I am going on holiday. It was searching for holiday reading that had me in Tesco, perusing the shelves for something light and entertaining. I spotted The...

A simple book with a good storyline.

probably wouldn't read it again!

Jane Green: The Beach House Jane Green is a “chick lit” author who I have come across a few times during my life! I love reading, especially chick lit type books, and even though been pregnant I don’t seem to have the energy to sit up all night reading anymore, I still love to have a read of my...

“Getting away from it all?”

published 31/12/2010

enjoyable and easy read

none

I have read and enjoyed quite a few books by Jane Green so I was well pleased when I picked up The Beach House for only ten pence at a school Christmas Fair. It was, like her others, an enjoyable read, although it did take me quite a while to really get into it. When I did though, I read the...
