Not as enjoyable as the real movies

Would you try another book from Ali McNamara and/or Finty Williams?

No, I think not. Yet, I did like the reader. I feel as if McNamara might grow up a bit.


Would you recommend From Notting Hill with Four Weddings...Actually to your friends? Why or why not?

No. I finished it because I was hoping for a twist. It is pretty darn shallow.


What aspect of Finty Williams’s performance would you have changed?

The reader was pretty good. It is not her fault she was given such lines.


Could you see From Notting Hill with Four Weddings...Actually being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No.


Any additional comments?

The premise led one to believe the book would have some depth, but it did not. This would be okay if the book held some huge humor or sardonic commentary or even a message. God forbid! The only reason I finished this book is that I was ill and in bed and had no other options. I thought the characters were beyond believable. Some, in fact, were simply as boring as if I were watching some lame tv show. Which I never do.

- Toby "Anglophile. Prefer only British fiction and mysteries. Good translations of Italian, too."

Kept Thinking it Would Get Better

Finty Williams is a lovely narrator. The book was too improbable. I kept thinking the story was going somewhere interesting but fell flat. I love Chicklit books but this is not recommended.
