'A fabulous first novel by a British writer...Her writing is witty and snappy and she is hilarious on the food industry, with a wit that would not disgrace television's The Office... I also found her fascinating on the methodology of contemporary dating.' Wendy Holden. 'Pear Shaped is the best sort of guilty pleasure, from the copious puddings our heroine Sophie tests in her day job, to the relationship she just knows is wrong for her but can't seem to give up. You'll shout out loud willing her to dump him, and cry with laughter as you recognise all the daft things we do when we're in love. And then you'll have a second helping of pudding and fall in love with Stella Newman's quick wit and her clever portrayal of that delicate balance between food, love and insanity.' -Kathleen Baird-Murray 'It reminded me of a lemon meringue pie: sharp and sweet and satisfying all at once. It's funny, sad and uplifting... Sophie Klein's every woman who's stood in front of a mirror and hated herself, and we adore her for that, and for finally delivering a Toxic Bachelor a good kick up the arse. It's a belter.' -Kate Long, bestselling author of The Bad Mother's Handbook 'Achingly funny, searingly honest, Pear Shaped is quite simply the freshest thing I've ever read. Take note of the name Stella Newman. A must for anyone who's ever loved, lost...or eaten too much dessert.' Claudia Carroll, bestselling author of Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow 'If you are a girl with a passion for food, this modern city heartbreak is the book for you.' Heat 'What a fantastic book. Really quite brilliant, way superior to standard well written, fresh, insightful, funny...honest and very contemporary. Fantastic dialogue. Great characters. There's so much that's fresh and fun, including the food world which I loved.' Henry Fitzherbert, Sunday Express



A novel about love, heartbreak and dessert.

Girl meets boy.
Girl loses boy.
Girl loses mind.

Sophie Klein walks into a bar one Friday night and her life changes. She meets James Stephens: charismatic, elusive, and with a hosiery model ex who casts a long, thin shadow over their burgeoning relationship. He’s clever, funny and shares her greatest pleasure in life – to eat and drink slightly too much and then have a little lie down. Sophie’s instinct tells her James is too good to be true – and he is.

An exploration of love, heartbreak, self-image, self-deception and lots of food. Pear-Shaped is in turns smart, laugh-out-loud funny and above all, recognizable to women everywhere.

Selten hat mich in den letzten Jahren ein ChickLit-Buch dermaßen überzeugt - und dann ist es auch noch ein Debüt! Sophie Klein, die irgendwas mit Pudding macht beruflich (ich muss gestehen, hier hapert es dann doch mit meinem Englisch, aber egal), trifft einen Mann, der genau ihr Beuteschema ist: bloß nicht zu gut aussehend. Er ist etwas älter als sie, erfahrener als sie, erfolgreicher als sie – und Sophie verliebt sich von den Zehenspitzen bis zum Haaransatz. Leider steht James auf dünne Frauen. Und dünn ist Sophie nicht, kein Wunder, sie liebt Essen. Wie sie dennoch versucht, die Romanze wahr werden zu lassen, dabei aber sich selbst treu zu bleiben, ist so spannend, mitreißend, intensiv, dass ich jeder Frau – und gern auch jedem Mann natürlich – dieses Buch nur ans Herz legen kann. Zum Heulen schön!

HASH(0x8e99ee4c) von 5 Sternen if something seems too good to be true 26. September 2014
Von C Christodoulides - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
On a night out with a friend Sophie meets the man of her dreams, but as the old adage goes, if something seems too good to be true, it usually is. I have just finished reading Pear Shaped and I feel as though I know Sophie, I was so upset that the novel had come to an end, that I almost wished that she would knock at my door so that we could have a girly chat (and of course cake!! preferably one of Sophie's creations...please!!). The beauty of this novel is that Newman has managed to create a very real and complex character, a woman who could easily be you or me or our best friend, facing the ordeals and struggles of falling in love with Mr Wrong: a man who unleashes Sophie's desires and dreams...and her insecurities, in such a big way that we are left to understand how life and love can change us, can send us on emotional journeys that we never expected. It deals with the very serious issue of the impact that an unbalanced and controlling relationship can have on our minds and our bodies. Newman does this in such a way that we live with Sophie, we feel with her, we laugh with her, and cry with her. At times the book is hilarious, Newman's natural wit and humour carries us through the whole novel, even during the saddest moments, I found myself laughing. This is a book about strength and hope and finding our lives again after we have unwittingly lost ourselves. It's about puddings and friendship and finding a way to be happy with who we are, whatever that might be. There are recipes and friendships and brownies and toilet ducks (!!!) and eccentric grandmothers and the reality of love and loss. She is a writer who is able, not only to hold you to the last page, but also to deal with the very gritty stuff that is life. Newman, thank you for this. I'm off to have a lovely cup of tea and a brownie!!!

HASH(0x8e99ef78) von 5 Sternen Not what I first expected-much more to it. 29. Dezember 2013
Von Julie Haigh - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
A friend recommended this author to me. I found this book and it was the book's cover which caught my eye. I thought it would be your typical 'person who loves food too much, puts weight on and agonises over losing it story'. I imagined a light-hearted and humorous tale. I was wrong. It's so much more than that. It goes far deeper. It concerns a normal, happy young woman who's mind-set is altered due to a bad relationship. She isn't fat but she thinks she is. Some emotional passages and some lighter parts. I didn't find all of it easy reading-some of it dragged a bit for me, but some parts were so good.

HASH(0x8e9a22d0) von 5 Sternen Pear Shaped 5. Oktober 2014
Von D.A Clark - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
This book warmed my heart. Clever, cute and hilarious...what more could you ask for in a story? I found Sophie to be pretty relatable for the most part (the good and the bad). I loved all the details about food, which were comprehensive without becoming boring. I believe that this book is filled with great moral lessons, and that any it will leave any woman with a smile on her face. Pear shaped, apple shaped, banana shaped, whatever fruit shape you are, you are sure to enjoy this terrific read!

Note: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

HASH(0x8e99ee04) von 5 Sternen satisfying British chick lit 23. Oktober 2014
Von C. Williams - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
I love British chick lit and I totally enjoyed this novel.

Sophie meets James, falls in love with James, and takes WAY too much crap from him - which is pretty frustrating to read (lots of yelling at her in my mind), and after losing herself in him, figures out he wasn't what she thought. She recovers.

Although she was a total doormat, and I did get very frustrated with her about that, I still really enjoyed the book, and will read the next book by Stella Newman.

Format: Kindle Edition
I really really enjoyed this book. If you love food, If you know love, If you enjoy sly humor and big hearts- get "pear shaped". The author is funny, smart, sweet and soulful - it's a chicken soup- healing, crying, laughing novel to share with a friend.
