Pressestimmen

This is that rare and delicious thing, a satire with a heart. Lois Cahall has written a Thelma and Louise for a credit-crunched world - a book so sharp and funny it would make Billy Wilder jealous. But Plan C is more than just the sum of its laughs. As Cahall skewers the ridiculous follies of modern life with a perfect six-inch heel, she also forgives all our vanities. Which is what makes this, finally, a surprisingly moving read. -- Simon Beaufoy Make it your A #1 priority to pick up Plan C. Lois Cahall has created a heroine you'll want to hang out with. Libby is a true girlfriend: hysterically funny, bawdy, and smart -- you'll laugh, cry, and commiserate with her to the point where once you've finally put Plan C down -- after you've read every word of it -- you'll miss spending time with her. -- Jessica Stedman Guff Racy, insouciant, uproarious, plugged-in and turned-on, Lois Cahall's Plan C is a breathless romp that knows all the best places to go, the worst people to avoid, and the perfect wisecrack to top off every occasion. It's a comedy precariously balanced on the awareness that the ground is shifting beneath the clicky heels of its sexy heroine, Libby Crockett, and the indignities of age are lying in ambush, ready to march up the driveway. But until then, kick back, raise a glass, and enjoy the ride. -- James Woolcott

Kurzbeschreibung

A screwball comedy with a heart. Thelma & Louise go to Europe. A revenge on midlife crisis.

Plan A: We grow up, get married, have babies, white picket fence.

Plan B: Mortgages, marriages, mistresses, divorce, my kids, his kids, stepkids, blended families. College tuition. Empty nest. Empty soul.

Plan C: Cabernet, passports, jet lag, Ambien, Europe. Who needs reality?

Until we realize reality can't be avoided. And truth is, we don't want to avoid it.We are a nation of underdogs - a society of hope. Plan C is accepting life as it comes, with no plan at all.

Once upon a time there was a divorced, single mother named Libby Crockett, living and working her fingers to the bone on Cape Cod. Her Plan A had failed, and now she dreamed of a new life and a new love -- her Plan B. And Plan B worked! It brought her to glamorous New York to a new man, a new life...and his expensive ex, his out-of-control kids, and the biggest recession in 70 years. Was this really what Libby had been dreaming of? Maybe it was time for Plan C...

2.0 von 5 Sternen Boring 6. April 2012
Von UT*G
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
To be honest I wasn't able to read the whole book, because it was just too boring. The dialogues are long wound, and they bring nothing to the story. The construction of the story is sometimes hard to follow, and there are some flaws ( why does Libby ( the main character) not know that her best friend's father is some famous rock star although this fact is the reason for her friend getting to know her present husband). The characters do not appear really likeable, and what Libby does for a living remains a mystery. Somehow the book is not well constructed, it needs to be rounded up. Had I paid the full price, I would regret it.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Unterhaltsam 17. April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Das Buch war eine nette Unterhaltung und angenehm zu lesen, wenn auch weder sehr tiefsinnig noch zum Nachdenken anregend, auch wenn so manche Inhaltsangabe das vermuten lässt. Aber es bietet eine nette Schlussfolgerung am Ende an, plädiert dafür, sich nicht mit allem abzufinden und für seine Träume zu kämpfen und ist eine etwas einfache, aber trotzdem nette Lektüre über das Leben in den Mittvierzigern.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Entertaining enough. 6. März 2012
Von AV - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Plan C is the story Libby Crockett, a divorced and single mother in her forties looking for a fresh start, which, she gets but it's too messy. Ben, his ex-wife, their kids, her kids and the drama going on with her friends all together make her life in New York so overwhelming that she and her friends, Kitty and Bebe decide to drop what they're doing and take off to Europe hoping to figure things out.

>As far as women's fiction go, Plan C by Lois Cahall is pretty standard with elements of chick lit and romance. We follow the three ladies and their adventures in Europe while they're trying to 'find themselves'. Libby and her friends are witty, relatable and engaging. Although, the story sometimes got a bit too corny for my taste, over all it was pretty funny, entertaining and light. Libby was quite charming and really funny. Although on the surface Plan C may be about a getaway plan, this book was more about finding love, happiness and contentment, just with a funny front.
I like how the book focused on not just Libby but also gave us a bit of all the other people around her. The supporting characters actually played a part in making the book enjoyable and that's kind of a first.

Predictable and cheesy at times, Plan C is still humorous enough to keep the reader entertained for a few hours. It makes a pretty nice feel-good novel.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Too tedious to read 19. August 2012
Von J. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I was interested in this book's premise, but after a couple of chapters, I stopped reading and deleted it off my Kindle. Why? Because the author simply tries too hard to engage the reader's interest and compassion. The descriptions use every cliche and well-worn analogy possible. My advice: just write the story, keep it simple, stop so obviously trying to engage the reader. A story either captures the imagination or it doesn't--veteran readers don't need to have feelings or issues spelled out for them. This story has a good premise, the author should consider that her using a tedious storytelling style overrides what could prove to be a good story.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Very funny read 6. Februar 2013
Von Avid reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The author touches on some of the thorniest issues of 40ish urban, American, women with enough understanding to know she's wrestled some of them. Dialogue is quick-paced if sometimes outlandish, bending circumstances to far outside believability. Cahill's laugh out loud humor, though, for this reader at least, forgives her. Would read her again.

5.0 von 5 Sternen PLAN D 18. März 2012
Von Helena - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
PLAN D - you wont be able to get on with your own life until you have finished this little gem of a book. Plan to spend the next day or two captivated by the shenanigans of Libby and her entourage of friends, lovers, family and a outrageously over the top predicaments in this hilariously touching romp of a story. It weaves like a modern day fairy tale with a meaningful illuminating 21st century twist. The power of a woman living in the moment whose destiny is at her fingertips.... We all have the right to live our dreams and choose which ones become a reality. Libby is on the forefront of this endeavor as she paves the way discovering her most inner truth and bright future.

You know Ben, in the beginning of a relationship, when things are going wrong, women fight for what they believe in. But, I told you the day I stop fighting for my rights is the day that its truly over. Because one day we wake up and we just dont care anymore. We give up. We cant make it work. &quote;
