    • another chick lit. not as great as sophie kinselle ( sorry i might mistype the name)raight talking is about finding love. and love is not neccessary ur fantasy man. sometimes the person who loves ubthe best is not as best looking as brad pitt. but again i read better.


    • This book reads like a long, long letter from one of your shallow and promiscuous girlfriends. The narrative includes the reader by asking your opinion once in a while, and addressing the story to you which makes the reading feel like a two way street in a way which is kind of fun and intimate. It's sort of like a sex in the city British style except the characters are less ambitious, less mature and less diversified in their personalities. The main focus of the story is a young 30 year old Engl [...]


    • This was one of the books I started in the last few weeks. I couldn't commit to any others and wasn't too into this one either. One day I got stuck without anything else to read and ended up just deciding to finish the damn book.It was no Jemima J, lets put it at that. I hate when you find an author you really like and then find out that you started with their best book. Oh bummer.I will say that this book has one of the hottest sex scenes ever ever ever. I was flustered at work when I was readi [...]


    • I'm going to come right out and say that I actually loathed this book. I don't usually get to say this due to not continuing on once I know a book isn't for me. But this was a quick read and I really wanted our lead, Tash, to redeem herself beyond the shallow, vapid character she was in the beginning. But she doesn't. She is looks-obsessed, not only for herself and the gents she is thinking of dating, but she also comments on her friends; in particular one who is dowdy in appearance as an extens [...]


    • This is my least favorite Jane Green book to date. I just felt continuously annoyed with the Tasha. What I found most annoying was that the book was written as if she's sitting beside you telling you the story. That drives me insane! "Hang on, the doorbell's ringing." Really, is that necessary? Should I stop reading while you answer the door? Isn't that the purpose of saying hang on? "You may as well join us," (umm, ok thanks for the permission to keep reading) "sit down, kick your shoes off," ( [...]


    • They say not to judge a book by its cover, however, the content of this book is true to its title: STRAIGHT TALKING. This book is perfect for ANY WOMAN, especially a single woman, who is going through the motions of relationships. Whether good or bad motions, Straight Talking covers every spectrum of emotions of what women deal with when dealing with men. The main character, Annastasia aka: Tasha, is so relatable and real, it's like you've known her all your life. Her struggles and situations, a [...]


    • I loved this book. It's about relationships and how the main character realizes that she falls in love with her best friend when it is too late and she comes close to ruining their relationship. The ending wasn't as detailed as I wanted it to be and was left open for your imagination. Overall, I really enjoyed the book.


    • How I love Jane Green. Excellent Brit chick-lit, and close second behind Marian Keyes.As chick lit is wont to be, this has a predictable ending until the predictable ending gets a little unpredictable.I love that the ending isn't well, typical of a chick lit book.


    • Loved this book! Be prepared to be surprised/shocked in the first 50 pages with just how 'straight' Jane Green is with her readers. A bit into itis way of talking to the the reader will grow on you and then you'll quite enjoy the fact that you really get to be inside this girls headnding out just what she's thinking and most of the time you'll probably relate. It's just all of those things you think about but never really put into words or don't have the guts to say aloudMy favorite parts/quotes [...]


    • This was a very quick, fun read. It broke all the rules. I hate first person, loved the narrator. I hate when the narrator speaks directly to the reader ("Hey reader, what do you think?") but it worked in this book. It's not a masterpiece, by any means, but if you're looking for a simple, fun book, this is a good choice. Jane Green is a hit or miss with me. When she tries to be too serious, or pull too hard at the heart, it doesn't work (The Beach House). But when she lets her quirky characters [...]


    • Characters are very shallow, no relationships develop, you just don't care about any of them. Story of Tasha, she just needs to quit whining and get on with it. It's clear she's stuck and wants a relationship, but in reading the novel you just get so tired of the shallowness. I thought it was going to be a story of woman friendship, but other than an occasional lunch, the friends don't appear at all.


    • This is purely beach-reading. Not a lot of thought, not a lot of surprises in the plot, but a switch-off, relaxing and possibly even mindless sort of girlie book. I have a weakness for these types of books and after reading some legit types of literature, I turn to them for a break.


    • I had to force myself to finish this book. I wanted to throw in the towel very early, but I wanted to finish. I was just not a fan of the main character Tasha. She just drove me crazy!


    • The ending was a disappointing cliff hanger. I was left on the top of the second hill of this roller coaster love story. Mostly well written but more lewd than "wickedly funny"!


    • Again, I couldn't seem to put this book down. 468 pages done and dusted in the space of an afternoon/evening. Her writing style was different this time around, the main character speaking to the reader as if they were having a conversation. This was a book about four friends in their early 30's but who are all in different types of relationships. The main character Tasha (Anastasia) has a series of relationships and flings but can never seem to find the one. She has a true friendship with Adam, [...]


    • because its Jane Green and she writes about everything her characters are thinking and over thinking I really enjoyed it. I was not crazy about the main character but would have kept her as my friend just would have been more like Mel is all. could not believe how many comments i got about the cover, seriously now its not that oooo, but then learned they were questioning the title, like straight as opposed to gay, what are you reading? and im like straight like to the point duh! they say it as i [...]


    • The bestselling first novel that launched Jane Green, one of the brightest stars in contemporary women’s fiction, Straight Talking sets the record straight regarding the real world of dating, and follows the adventures of Tash and her friends as they search for fulfillment and the right kind of love. Funny, flirty, and ultimately tender, Straight Talking gets at the heart of modern romance.I really wanted to like this more. It sounds like my kind of book, ladies dating and having a hard time f [...]


    • I normally jude a book by its cover, and yes i do mean an actal book cover. When i read the reviews to this book I thought to myself, "How will I ever like it?" Well I LOVED it!! If you are in your mid to late 20's and single, this is the book for you. I could not stop laughing! the characters are so on point and the story lines eminate reality. jane Green did not hold anything back. This book was one of my favorite books. So lesson is, don't go by the cover of the book, or by what people say. g [...]


    • i didnt like it,i didnt like the way that it was written,i found the talking straight to the reader format embarassing to be honest, and i really disliked tash. the only reason i finished it was out of pure boredom,i found tash so whiny and annoying,and extremely self-centred - i know it wouldnt be realistic if the lead of every book was perfect but i found it impossible to find one thing i liked about her!


    • I am really glad that I finally decided to read this one. Oh, Jane Green! I just wanted to shake Tasha so many times in the story, but at the same time I was really pulling for her. This made me think a lot about my relationship with my husband. Passion, comfortability, friendship Great read all around.


    • I'm a huge fan of Jane Green. Still working on reading her whole collection but this book irritated me. At one point I started to feel like her books are all the same but they're not. I'm not even 30 but I'm in a committed stable relationship and maybe it's because I couldn't relate to the main character but I just kept feeling as if Tasha was dumb and naive. I like her as an author but this is a book I'll never read again.


    • I like to read these books for a little light reading and was pleasently surprised by this book. While still being a chick-lit, there were a couple of really interesting parts about how people work and think. I look forward to reading more books by Jane Green.


    • Everything about this was predictable and cliched. And I wanted a classic chick lit! This was not what I expected. The characters had no depth. Everything tied up way to easily. It was dull. It was not insightful and I hated the way she spoke to the reader all the time. She's written way better!



    • It was a good book but was definitely more focused on the physical side of relationships rather than the sweetness and love. A little too physical for me.



    • This book was entertaining but predictable. Girl is friends with the "nice" boy and doesn't realize she's in love with him until the ending.




    • I couldn't get into this book. I didn't even get half way through it and decided I just didn't want to waste my time. Just not for me.
