One thought on “Getting Rid Of Matthew

  1. Megan Baxter

    I am in an emotional quandary entirely of my own making I try to stride proudly around, claiming I ll read anything once, trying to eschew the all too common academic trend of looking down on popular culture or books that everyone is reading So I make sure there are one or two recently popular books on my reading list at any one time I m open minded, dammit Note The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision here.I [...]

  2. Karen

    This was a great rid, chick lit with some substance A 30 something woman who has spent four years of her life with a married man now ends up with him full time and finds it is so much less than she hoped for Well written, funny, insightful And set in England always a plus Why does British slang sound so much classier than US slang

  3. Daisy

    In Getting Rid of Matthew, Helen finally convinces her lover to ditch his wife, but as soon as he moves out whoops She doesn t want him any So rather than chronicle falling in love and winning the guy, this clever novel recounts the all too real ways we lose interest in people did he really leave his socks on the couch again Has his hair always looked that bad and how we kick them out But what if you happen to develop an unexpected friendship with the wife, the woman you made a cuckold of Well, [...]

    Helen had always imagined that by the time she turns forty she d have her life sorted she d have the job in PR she wanted, a lovely apartment in London and a man to share it with So there was plenty of time to travel the world and go out drinking with her best friend Rachel Now Helen s thirty nine and waking up to the fact that none of her expectations in life have come about she lives in a basement flat she s stuck in a second rate PR firm as a lowly personal assistant she s invented a boyfrien [...]

  5. Mandy

    Finally finished it It s hilarious and written with the same british humour that I ve been used to of late A friend bought it in London and read it, said it reminded her of med passed it on.A woman is having an affair with a married man Just as she decides she s getting fed up with it him 4 years into the affair , he shows up on her doorstep having left his family and now wants to be with her.She s less than amused that this has happened and decides to do everything in her power to repel him and [...]

  6. Heidi

    This is one of the worst books I have ever read The story is based on an adulturous relationship, which is repugnant But when this woman finally gets her boyfriend to leave his wife, she no longer wants him I never enjoyed or cared for the main character and as the book developed it only got worse The language is rough and reason enough to NEVER pick up this book.

  7. Christie Stratos

    This book was supplied to me by Audiobook Reviewer This review was originally published on ABR s website It s a rare humor book that s laugh out loud funny, clever, and complex all at the same time Humor is a difficult genre to write, especially since it s easy to alienate readers who don t share the same sense of humor as the writer, therefore unfortunately appealing to one type of reader instead of a variety of readers and often attracting heavy criticism Getting Rid of Matthew by Jane Fallon [...]

  8. Diane

    I have rated this book on the level which I enjoyed it rather than the quality of the writing The writing is actually pretty good except for the odd glitch where absent characters suddenly speak in conversations but unfortunately this type of novel isn t my thing.I was given a copy for World Book Night and thought I would give it a go even though I don t usually read chic lit It isn t badly written or anything, but I didn t like the characters, the storyline or the concept and I didn t find it f [...]

  9. Sondra Santos

    So far, so good This is a book about a woman who years for her lover s attention outside their scheduled evenings Once he leaves his wife for her, she s shocked to realize that she doesn t actually want him, after all.Determined to learn about the wife that she took him from, Helen befriends Sophie and heads into dangerous territory, trying to balance her career where her new live in, married older boyfriend works , her relationship with Matthew s teenage daughters and her new friend, Sophie, w [...]

    What a terrible book I struggled to like the characters and with no result.Helen is a bitch and a cow and all the annoying things,Matthew is a bastard and Sophie is boring,at least a bit likeble than the others.I can t understand how 11 years old or near this age girl will swear like a grown up and the grown ups have been using fuck,shit and fuck and shit every second sentence.I ve red Got you back from Jane Fallon some time ago before this one and now I found that I m going over nearly the same [...]

  11. Tolly

    Some books I read just to escape, like a lifetime movie This made me laugh, her descriptions are spot on, and can put you in the moment I thought it was a bit long and there was an ick factor in the ending, but that might just be me It was fun I laughed about the upstairs neighbors and personalities taken.

    Knjigu op enito ne smatram gubljenjem vremena ali ova je toliko lo a, plitka i o ajna da sam mogla vrijeme utro iti i na manje gluposti

  13. Elizabeth

    This was an easy read Helen is the worlds most dumb and self absorbed creature in the whole entire world yet age still comes across as genuine I felt like lots of situations in this book were totally unreal and I ll be honest the ending was ridiculous The thing however that annoyed me the most was the list of women we hateHelen had become one but when her vest friend does too she gives her such a hard time I d be interested to read another book by this author just to see if I rated it any than t [...]

  14. Ian Mapp

    Genuinely funny book maybe the funniest of the year and my foray into the world of chick lit.Fallon does a great job of caustic one liners in her observations of people, although I am disappointed that she has ladies who where suspenders on her list of peole that she hates She also paints the story of perhaps the least sympathtic character in fiction with her portrayal of a woman who has a four year affair with a married man, forces him to leave his wife and then promptly spends the rest of the [...]

  15. Lulu

    There are many humorous bits throughout the book which is a tad raunchy that you really will laugh out loud I mean, Fannie Flagg said I loved it What a terrific writer so how bad can the book be, right Maybe it s just me Or the mood I was in the other day when I read it Or the author just made it hard to connect with any of the characters because none were fully developed Or maybe it was the characters themselves I mean, how do you relate to someone who vacillates between being a hot mess consta [...]

    Getting Rid Of Matthew follows the story of a successful, thirty something businesswoman who has fallen hopelessly in love with her married boss After years of trying Boss Man decides to leave his wife and kids for his mistress, when surprise, surprise, she actually discovers she doesn t want him any Despite its typical, rather cliched synopsis, this novel is an exciting chick lit and an impressive attempt for a first time author Although women are typically conditioned to despise the mistress p [...]

  17. Christy

    This was just ok.The premise is that the mistress gets the adulterous husband, but then doesn t want him and so then works to get the shunned wife and adulterous husband back together.It s interesting enough to see how things shake out, but what bothers me the most is the sympathy that I felt for the mistress even though she went into the affair knowing he was a married man I m also a bit bothered that throughout the book there is a running list of women the mistress hates she figures prominentl [...]

  18. Bill

    The Getting rid of Matthew story may resonate with some single women in their mid 30 s and married men over 50, who have become embroiled in not dissimilar addictive affairs, with unenviable consequences after the intensive passion declines, as it succumbs to the ravages of real life constraints.Jane Falcon s book is cleverly written, with humorous undertones that I found very entertaining, as they contained lots of human issues covered in a reasonable amount of detail, without becoming too pers [...]

  19. Sarah Boies

    I remember my mom reading this book and liking it Thought I would give it a go hated it Every time the main character would speak, I would get irritated and have to put the book down You are supposed to like her, pity her, and want the best for her but she is just a complete turd But I began it, so I had to finish it The ending didn t make you feel fulfilled either not recommended Will not be reading books about homewreckers.

  20. Dawni

    Although the plot was okay, and the book had a followable storyline, I found that I really wasn t into the characters at all The only character even vaguely interesting and likeable was Sophie the wife Matthew left From the beginning, I found this one very hard to get into I outright disliked Matthew and I wasn t very fond of Helen, either It did get better once Sophie came into the picture , but for the most part I really wasn t impressed Not one I intend to keep

  21. Briana Alzola

    Interesting look at what it s like on the other side of the coin the point of view of the mistress I thought the book was entertaining but it lacked something for me I didn t really connect with the characters and I had a hard time caring about what happened to them I didn t really know who I was supposed to root for.

  22. E.C. Adams

    Definitely one of the funniest books I ve ever read Just recommended it to a GR contact who asked for suggestions for a book that would make her laugh and leave her with a happy feeling This is that sort of book.

  23. Sarah

    This is the worst book I have ever read In fact, it is scarcely a book Pop up characters, no depth, flimsy use of language, poor linguistic rhythm and a horribly predictable ending I only finished it because I rate determination over pleasure It appears Jane Fallon feels the same way

  24. Gina

    I m truly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book I used to be a huge chick lit fan but have broadened my reading horizons and now tend to turn to it when I need to clear a book hangover from something heavier or just want some silly, mindless entertainment during times of stress Both were the case here so I went into it with relatively low expectations for probably a 3 ish star rating But as another reviewer said, there was actually some substance here along with the ridiculous, which was a g [...]

  25. Adelyne Chan

    Funny, witty story which is well written just what you d want out of a chick lit book Rather repetitive, particularly the office scenes, where the same few things seemed to be just happening over and over again The balance of the book didn t seem right, with a very long drawn out middle section and a quick ending Could be just my taste of having closure, and I would have appreciated interaction between the two main female characters at the end of the book Overall It was a fun book to read and [...]

  26. Coral

    Pretty much all the characters in this book are on the spectrum of awfulness But you know what We can have female anti heroes and dislikable characters I wouldn t do what Helen did, but I enjoyed reading about her journey to less awfulness The first 100 pages or so was hard to get through, because the characters aren t nice people But once I was invested, I had a few good laughs The writing was pretty good Definitely heavy on the British isms.I really enjoyed the developing friendship between He [...]

  27. Janani Sri

    I am not the one for cheesy romance novels Though I used to be one, when I was around 13 I guess And I got this book Getting Rid of Matthew as a complimentary book for purchasing a pile of others, this year Getting Rid of Matthew actually exceeded my expectation, it had a different kind of a chick lit thrill and suspense to it, than the usual ones You ought to give it a try when you are at real leisure with absolutely nothing to read.

  28. Malvika Sp

    Ha ha I felt like reading this book just because of it s title and summary But, you know what they say Never judge a book by it s cover It s funny and I liked the part when she realizes it s all just a phase infatuation and the part where she tries to make the family whole again Hope we all just realize this soon enough in our lives The part where he doesn t stop with the relationships seems a tad bit much, most men are not like that, ha ha, but who s to say
