Jane James knows that she was born for better things than evenings spent eating Heinz tinned potato salad in her Aunt's house. She dreams of a glamorous life filled with beautiful things. When Jane finds a crocodile handbag left in a pub, it leads her to Suzy, a girl-about-town with the irresistible allure that Jane has been practising for so long. Could Jane's dreams be about to come true?

    " Loved it. The description of the clothes, the glamour clashing with the seedier side of London. I couldn't put this down, was sad to finish it. Would recommend to those who have a 'thing' for clothes "

    " Really couldn't get into this book. It just felt so tiresome and insignificant. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Esparkinson | 1/29/2013

    " Odd. Bits I loved. Bits really jarred. Some of the descriptions were brilliant but I didn't care about the characters. But I don't think I was supposed to. "

    " Thoroughly enjoyable period piece set in post-war London when it just starts swinging. Darkly comic in parts and utterly fascinating throughout I found this hard to put down. I would have given it five stars but the ending felt a bit rushed which is a shame as it was a delightful read. "

    " I love love LOVED this book! i picked it up in a little book store in london and my mom and i would always steal it from eachother to read it! it beautifully paints Jane's world of rags to riches and is a real page turner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edem Onofeghara | 10/16/2011

    " It's amazing to see that times never really change...what has been will be again. The lives the women lived are sadly being played out again in these times. Well written, a window into that period in time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie Mcsweeney | 7/27/2011

    " I adored the first 3/4s of this book but it just flopped in the last 1/4. The start is excellent and engaging, the characters are well drawn... i just hated the end! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen Farrow | 7/9/2011

    " A little long but very well written. Louise Levenes quirky turn of phrase keeps the novel interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Imogen Harris | 5/28/2011

    " Hated the fact that I did not care about the characters. Left it after 100 pages ! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Míami | 1/4/2011

    " Very enjoyable book. The main character is witty if no articulately loveable, the account of her life is satirical and realistic in a very cynical way, and the tragic ending brought an unexpected twist. Enjoyable; shows a very ugly side of the era's superficiality. "

    " I really enjoyed this as it captured a single girl's life in swinging London.
    A world of cad's, playboys and Hardy Amies suits.
    A quick read ideal for travelling. "
