Pressestimmen

Acclaim for The Trials of Tiffany Trott: 'funny, charming, upbeat and unputdownable' Marian Keyes 'An engaging creation with a knack in witty one-liners' Sunday Express -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Synopsis

The sparkling new romantic comedy novel by the author of THE TRIALS OF TIFFANY TROTT. Everyone likes radio reporter Minty -- she's so terribly nice. But being nice doesn't save her from being jilted at the very altar by her attractive but domineering fiance Dominic. Ditched rather than hitched, a shocked Minty takes stock, and, on her husbandless honeymoon, she vows to become just a little less 'nice'. Joined by her fiery cousin Amber, whom no one could describe as sweet-natured, Minty sets out on a Quest for the Self, in which she will finally learn how to say 'No'. But Dominic's devastating desertion has left her with an unhealed wound. For if the man she loved could do that to her, then how can any man be trusted? But then Minty stumbles upon the real reason for Dominic's dreadful defection. Faced with the ugly truth, she prepares to move on, let go, and learn how to say 'Yes' once more. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

I loved Minty Malone from the first page where she is found searching frantically for her grandmother's tiara, getting ready for "her day, exactly as SHE wants it" all alone! Of course, after nearly driving herself into hysterics she looks in the mirror and finds it on her head. "Her day" went downhill from there.
This author, Isabel Wolff, is new to me, but I am ordering her prior book immediately after reading Minty Malone. Minty takes a good long while getting over her engagement gone bad, swinging from blaming herself totally to blaming him totally. She comes to the conclusion, as most of us do, that the relationship was a bust because both were at fault, although she has to painfully acknowledge her own shallowness in the process. Her class on how not to be 'nice' is so hilarious I think I'll either look for one myself or start one. The way she learns to trade insults with the gorgeous Joe gets wittier and wittier as they happily draw stares from the crowds of people who overhear them. How I love to laugh!

I'm currently plowing through the Thirty-Year Old Woman's reading list (Getting Over It, Welcome to My Planet, Otherwise Engaged, Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married, etc.). If you like those books or those kinds of books, this one is definitely worth checking out. It's less, ummm, "literary" than books such as "Otherwise Engaged" or "Welcome" nor as it as quick a read as those two books. It's not as much of a cartoon as Bridget. It's really more like Lucy Sullivan, but I liked this book MUCH more. It is a book with a sense of humor, but not a laugh-out-loud book.
What I like so much about this book is that you can't help but wonder if Isabel Wolff is watching Oprah when Dr. Phil comes on (Does Oprah even come on in London?). Dr. Phil preaches that "We teach people how to treat us," and that there are no victims. And THAT is the message of this book. You'll read in the other reviews that this is a story about a woman who got jilted at the altar. Yep- sure did. And it is a story about her recovering from this- but it's MORE than that. It's about her having to realize that SHE could have prevented the jilting, and that getting jilted was not the worst thing in the world (The 28,000 pounds spent on the wedding, notwithstanding). She has to realize that she was too nice and too much of a doormat and that the fault is not all his, nor is it all hers.
This seems to me to be a new sort of theme for these kinds of books. This genre of books tend to be more about "Oh poor me- Bad men treat me wrong and I need to find a good man." Minty Malone is more about learning the lesson of, "I *chose* the bad men who treated me wrong and that's my fault. I need to value myself more.

Format: Taschenbuch
You've read one, you've read them all. Yes, I know I'm being a little bit harsh, & I know that some of the "contemporary-light-easy to read-supposedly modern romances" are better than others. But after having read at least 20 of these, I'm starting to feel as if I've read one too many.
"The making of Minty Malone" by Isabel Wolff was one of the books I bought this summer, while on vacation & desperate to have something to read on the plane. The truth though is that I could have chosen it anyway, in a bookstore, since I have a soft spot for this kind of book after reading everything by Marian Keyes & Helen Fielding. But that's the point: Marian Keyes & Helen Fielding write well, & their books stand out & would have done so even if they had decided to write about something else. The same cannot be said about all the other writers deciding to write this kind of novel: it's as if they all follow an exact formula. Single woman, living lonely & sad & usually ditched in London preferably. Two or three close friends around her. A job that, as the book develops, gets better, as new opportunities appear out of nowhere & our heroine becomes more assertive by the moment, "gets in touch with her true feelings" & grabs these chances. And of course in the end, there's always an almost perfect for everyone, (but definitely perfect for the heroine) man. They live happily ever after & we're left to wander what the hell is wrong with our everyday life, since it doesn't seem to change so dramatically & so easily...
Isabel Wolff's book follows the above formula exactly. So it's both good & bad.

I was hooked on this book from page one where the dreaded Dominic does the dirty on poor Minty. But although her struggle is painful, it's also very funny as she struggles to understand how stupid she's been in letting Dominic dominate her. She is a very warm and sympathetic character, and is surrounded by a cast of really vivid characters who will live with you long after you've finished the book - Amber the maddening but also adorable cousin, whose books are so terrible, and Melinda the talentless radio presenter with a speech impediment, and the mother whose addiction to good causes almost lands her in jail. And then the lovely Joe, who like Minty has been too nice for his own good and who has to learn to say 'no' sometimes rather than always saying 'yes'. Wolff's comic touch is so sure, and she creates characters which are both very funny, and yet utterly believeable - and there's a touching scene with a litttle stray cat. I just couldn't predict what was going to happen in this brilliantly funny story of a woman triumphing over emotional disaster, and coming out, laughing, on the other side.
