Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Tasha, the anti-heroine of Jane Green's Straight Talking, is sassy, sexy and out for all she can get, or so she would have you believe. Straight Talking aims its arrows of truth directly at you, as its narrator, Tasha, openly discusses issues as if you were part of the world on the page and could answer back. The book is a no-holds-barred, frank take on sex, friendship and relationships for the single thirtysomething. A ladette in her 20s, sleeping around happily with a series of men, Tasha begins to retrench in her 30s and it becomes all-out open warfare to capture a man.

Will she fall for the suave, arrogant Andrew, who has females falling at his feet? Or will she fall back into a relationship with her treacherous ex-boyfriend, Simon? Or will she come to lean on nice, but not terribly sexy, Adam? Green's/Tasha's style is irreverent and self-deprecating as she points the finger at the clichés of singledom: "Of course I have cats. What self-respecting single career woman of 30 who's secretly desperately longing to give it all up for the tall, rich stranger of her dreams doesn't have cats?" She has a keen eye and a cutting tongue, which sustains the action and pace of this sharply observed and witty first novel. --Nicola Perry -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Pressestimmen

"Any woman who's suffered a relationship trauma, or simply lost her way in the confusion of modern life, will "die" for this book . . . Wickedly funny, it may not improve your love life, but it "will" make you squeal with laughter." --"Cosmopolitan" "Irritatingly accurate, "Straight Talking" is a hilarious and poignant look at love and sex." --"Elle" "Sharp, funny, and packed with familiar situations for all those who've ever embarked on the dating game." --"Tattler"

Straight Talking is exactly what the author does in this book. She tells you her story by talking directly to you. She asks you questions, knows what you are thinking and it is really like your best friend telling you her story.
First I thought it is a bit strange, her asking me questions and going on like she is having a conversation with me. But I did really like it in the end. It is a refreshing way to read a book. Also it makes you realize that the character isn't as naive as she might seem, because you know what she is thinking all the time, so you know why she does what she does.
If you need a change from the normal fiction romances this is worth reading.

2 von 2 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Vonni am 26. Juni 2006
Format: Taschenbuch
Die Tatsache, dass die Autorin den Leser direkt anspricht ist zwar gewöhnungsbedürftig, aber im Endeffekt gut gelungen. Man kann sich sehr gut in das Geschehen hineinversetzen und manch eine Frau wird sich darin erkennen. Zwar sind Zusammenhänge zu Sex and the city zu finden, aber keinesfalls würde ich das Buch als Abklatsch sehen. Ist sicherlich Geschmacksache, aber meiner Ansicht nach lohnt es sich dieses Buch zu lesen. Ganz besonders wenn man selbst gerade in einer Männerkrise steckt. Und welche Frau tut das nicht mal.....

Straight talking lag am Leseboard meines Hotels in Kroatien auf - ich kannte die Autorin vorher nicht.
Das Buch ist eine ideale Urlaubslektüre: witzig und flott geschrieben, ungewöhnlich in der Ansprache der Leserinnen und Leser. Es liest sich leicht auf Englisch und hat mich in den Bann gezogen. Sehr empfehlenswerte, leichte Lesekost für Zwischendurch und um das eigene Englisch auf Trapp zu halten.Straight Talking

What's that nasty taste in my mouth? 27. April 2005
Von Pimm - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Ew. This book was just...gross. I was shocked, because I really enjoyed Jemima J. Apparently, Jane Green has really only managed one genuinely likeable protagonist. The main character in Straight Talking, Tash, is really vile. I don't even mind that she's slutty, but I really dislike how stuck-up and egocentric she is. Most of the book is taken up with Tash's endless whining about how her parents screwed her up (because her father had affairs when she was a child) and her constant statements about how hot she is and how every man stares at her with lust. I actually guffawed with outrage at one point towards the end of the book where she says she "even forgives" the reader for disliking her. That's a real laugh, but perfectly in line with her irritating personality. Tash also goes on and on about how slutty one of her best friends, Andy, is, and how "even with all of her faults, she's a good storyteller," and how dumpy her best friend Mel is, and how she (Tash) didn't initially think Mel was "good enough for her" because she was frumpy. Obviously, Tash is a fictive character, but the fact that this book compels me, a normally rather level-headed reader, to actively strongly dislike the main character and essentially root against her, is a real testament to Jane Green's inability here to create an even semi-likeable, realistic, or slightly sympathetic main character.

Another major problem I had with this book was its total lack of connection to reality. At times, I actually found myself wondering if this book had been written by a man. Some of the descriptions of Tash's behavior or her "lust" felt totally out of touch with how most women behave or feel. I know I'm not "everywoman," but I have never read a book that was so totally out of touch with how I as a woman, or even just as a human being, feel and act. Every book I've read, especially those in the chick lit genre, has captured some truths that I can really relate to, but I felt that Tash seemed more like a caricature of a horny young man, rather than a 30-year old woman.

I'll give Jane Green this--she can write some pretty steamy sex scenes. But it's not enough when you spend your whole time reading the book wanting to throttle the main character.

Not The Best Jane Green - But Not Bad For A Debut 28. Oktober 2003
Von Caroline P. Hampton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I love Jane Green. She is probably my very favorite author in the whole world. I have had this book for years (it was published in the UK ages ago) and I think that people are going into this book thinking it's new and will be up to her current standards. That is not the case. This is her very first book and only shows moments of her talent and brilliance. Later books really express how much she had grown and how very talented she really is.
That being said --- this book is still really good and right up there with other "Chick Lit" books on the market today. It holds it's own against those currently being published - but might pale in comparison to her previous offers. If you go into this as any other chick book - you'll be fine. Just don't think this is a NEW Jane Green book. You might be disappointed.
Cheers!

A good read for single women 3. Dezember 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I have read many books, and this is the first time I've actually truly related to a character. Tasha may be 30 and in London, and I'm 24 and in the Midwest USA, but we are not very different.

I read another one of the reviews, and it says that the character is unlikable. But I don't think you're supposed to like her. She's not supposed to be the perfect heroine of the other books. She has her insecurities, and she makes decisions that she knows that she shouldn't be making, but does them anyway, and she falls in love with guys that treat her like dirt. The whole book is about her discovering the important aspects of love and friendship.

I love the British humor, and the blunt, straight-forward writing when it comes to the thoughts going through the narrator's head.

I could not put this book down right to the end. I'm making all of my friends read it, including my best guy friend because I know he'll find the resemblance frightening.

Oh, she's just fabulous 25. Juni 2005
Von Kay xxx - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Being English, I've had this book since way back when... I adore Jane Green (along with Cathy Kelly, Marian Keyes, Sophie Kinsella, Adele Parks et al) because she does chick lit at it's best.

Although this is one of the first of her books, it's the last I've read (Besides "The Other Woman) I read "Spellbound" first (I think it's been renamed "To Have and To Hold" for the US???) cuz I borrowed it off a friend. Loved it.

Greens books are light, easy reads and yes, the are superficial in places but, you know, what I don't want a deep and meaningful read! In places they can be very witty(British sense of humour and all that jazz) "Straight Talking" isn't her best book. "Mr Maybe" and "Jemima J" are, in my opnion.

But anyway, buy it. It's fun.

Slow Start but keep reading! 15. Dezember 2003
Von Brittan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Straight Talking is a hard book to explain. The first half makes you think there is no plot but the second half is unbarable and you just can't put it down! Tasha is an unlikable character but so much of her makes you think about yourself. The book really picks up in the second half so don't give on Jane Green! She keeps her high status of an AMAZING chick lit author with Straight Talking!
