Kurzbeschreibung

A licensed psychologist who stars on the cable breakout show I Need a Push, Reagan Bishop helps participants become their best selves by urging them to overcome obstacles and change behaviors. An overachiever, Reagan is used to delivering results.

Despite her overwhelming professional success, Reagan never seems to earn her family’s respect. Her younger sister, Geri, is and always will be the Bishop family favorite. When a national network buys Reagan’s show, the pressure for unreasonably quick results and higher ratings mounts. Desperate to make the show work and keep her family at bay, Reagan actually listens when the show’s New Age healer offers an unconventional solution.... 

Record Nielsen ratings follow. But when Reagan decides to use her newfound power to teach everyone a lesson about sibling rivalry, she’s the one who will be schooled....

1.0 von 5 Sternen What happened?? 18. Februar 2014
Von I'm Just a Girl... - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This book made me sad, and not because it was a sad topic. Jen Lancaster launched herself into my heart and my must read list with the release of Bitter Is The New Black. That book was epic. With each new memoir, I was first in line to get a copy, and devoured it. None really reached the heights of Bitter, but the first few were great and would leave me laughing to loud I had to be careful not to read them in public. I have practically forced friends to read her books, especially Bitter. But, with each new memoir, I felt a little less connected, and laughed a little less. Until the most recent “Martha” memoir, where I was like – who IS this person?

Then there were the novels. The first (If You Were Here) was ok – I felt like the fiction writer in her as not as fantastic as the memoir writer, but I am a sucker for all things John Hughes so I forgave a lot. The characters also did not seem to be a far departure from her and her IRL husband. The second novel left me confused – was this really the same person who wrote the very brilliant “Bitter”? Now, this latest novel. Honestly – I doubt it would have ever been published had the author not already had a following, who were willing to buy anything she wrote, hoping to find that old spark, I was one of them. At least a dozen times, I was ready to stop reading “Twisted” – it was just that bad. Characters were flat and wholly unlikeable at the same time. The plot was unbelievable and not at all entertaining. The laugh out loud moments I have always enjoyed from her writing? Not one. The only reason this book as “one star” is because there were no options for less.

Not sure if I would say she should give up novels and stick to memoirs…..or if I think her best writing days are behind her (as the “Martha” book might indicate). I am sad. I used to LOVE reading anything and everything she wrote. Not sure what has happened….but it is bad.

2.0 von 5 Sternen If You Hate The Book at Page 10, Stop Reading. It Does Not Get Better... 11. Februar 2014
Von Elizabeth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Even for a rabid Jen Lancaster fan like myself, this was not a good book. The plot was a retread of her last novel, Here I Go Again, and the main character was laughable. I could actually imagine Lancaster thinking to herself "I need to write a character that is not me. I don't run, so let's make her a runner. I didn't excel academically, so let's make her a PsyD. I do drink, so she'll be a teetotaler. I LOVE MTV's 'The Real World', so she'll be disdainful of reality television.." and on and on. Reagan Bishop is like the bizarro version of Lancaster, except that they are both essentially spoiled and self-centered. Which I liked, in the beginning Bitter is the New Black, because it highlighted how much she had learned about herself and how far she had come by the end of the memoir. In this book, there was no learning or personal growth. There was only magic jewelry and plot devices stolen from 1970's era YA fiction.

I wish Lancaster would revisit what it was about her earlier memoirs that made them so successful, and channel that energy into coming up with engaging characters and an original plot. I know she's capable of that kind of book, and I still hold onto the hope that she will write something worth reading in the future.

2.0 von 5 Sternen More CHARACTERS and less CARICATURES 10. Februar 2014
Von Jennie P - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This was a painful read. There is not an original thought or character in this book. Every character is some exaggerated stereotype or modeled directly from today's celebs (Oprah, LiLo, Amanda Bynes); the gangsta rapper who turns into Thurston Howell when out of the public eye. The reference to "Mayor Tiny Dancer" which is taken directly from the local radio here in Chicago and not a creative moniker created by Ms Lancaster. The blue collar south side family [though if you're Mayor Daley's right hand (wo)man, you'd be living in something bigger than a bungalow, no?]

SPOILERS

And the end? Wow, everything was tied neatly with a bow in the last 10% of the book. We're supposed to just accept the surfer exboyfriend, whom the main character had only one "real time" conversation with in the book, as her prince charming sweeping her off her feet? And as for how that came to be? ooohh, can't say but its all part of the "hocus pocus" theme of the book. Speaking of hocus pocus, we're just supposed to buy that everyone, including her boss, is copacetic with body switching? Everyone's on board and believes this s*** happens? There's suspension of disbelief and there's this drivel.

This is not so much "chick-lit" as its YA. I felt as though I was reading a Sweet Valley High book with Reagan as Elizabeth and Geri as Jessica.

Maybe she should spend less time decorating the home that Bitter bought, and focus more on putting out books that fans actually want to read. I'd say "stick to the memoirs", but even those have become stale lately. She did say in an interview that her memoirs were based on some sort of conflict, and now the conflict doesn't exist which I think is why she moved to fiction. However, Ms Lancaster cannot make up conflict well at all.

1.0 von 5 Sternen The book that made me quit reading Jen Lancaster 16. Februar 2014
Von Betsy S. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Jen Lancaster and I have come to the end of the road. I would have been annoyed enough with the way she puts question marks after every other sentence (or sentence fragment); it's so cloying that I actually began to cringe whenever one showed up, so I was cringing a LOT. I was already on the fence about the book, and then last night I came upon this passage:

"I pretend to be immersed in the awful book I grabbed in the airport bookstore. How do I inevitably wind up with memoirs penned by hacks? I hate when writers try to pass off their clear and present neuroses as humor. The author claims to be 'bitter,' but anyone with credentials would assess her as 'borderline.'
"'Camille said you stole a bag from a homeless guy.'
"Insufferable.
"I could write circles around this moron.
"I snap shut the book because even a conversation with Deva would be less painful than this dreck."

And I snapped shut *this* book, because having my fingernails forcibly removed would be less painful than continuing to read this self-reverential (oh, aren't I clever? I'm bad-mouthing my own book! I'm adorable!) crap.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Nonfiction is where the talent lies, not in fiction 9. Februar 2014
Von Angela Risner The Sassy Orange - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Reading this reminded me of a quote from an episode of Will & Grace, where Taye Diggs' character says: "If this isn't the theater showing 'Memoirs of a Geisha' then why are all of these people coming out going "eh"?"

Yup, that's all I could think about when I thought about writing this review. Eh. Eh. Eh.

There's no question in my mind that Jen Lancaster is a talented and funny writer when she is writing about her own life, though some of those tomes have gone astray as well. But when she tries to write fiction, it just always feels so forced.

This book follows Reagan Bishop, who is a psychologist on a reality TV show called I Need a Push. Reagan believes that her life is fairly perfect, other than missing out on Mr. Right. She looks down on her family, particularly her two sisters. One of her sisters is a SAHM mom to a passel of children, while her other sister is living in their parents' basement as she flits between beautician jobs.

That's as far as I'm going to go for recap, because it's all going to boil down to this:

1. There is nothing original in this book. Nothing. The TV show's original host is obviously based on Oprah. The celebrities that appear on the show are obviously based on people like Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Bynes, Britney Spears, etc.
2. Reagan, for much of the book, is a deplorable person. If you can't root for the main character, you don't have a hope of enjoyment in the book.
3. There's a very quick wrap-up at the end, which is actually where the book SHOULD have started. Reagan is likable at the end. Had the book started where she is given a reality check and then proceeded through her fixing of her relationships (which is wrapped up in about 2 pages), then it would have been redeemable.

I don't know Jen personally, of course, but I almost feel as though the fiction books are something she feels like she HAS to do in order to keep an audience. From reading her other books, it's clear that losing her job before her first memoir and the ensuing struggle was traumatic and left a mark. I get that. I think that she is pushed to write as much as possible now out of fear of going through that again. However, she's not remaining true to her own self, and that shows. You can feel the desperation in the fictional books. They desperately want you to like them and it's a total turn-off.

I do wish her success and I hope that there are more non-fiction entries coming.
