I know. It's shocking. I can hardly believe it myself. ME. Giving a Sophie Kinsella a two star rating. Okay, yes, I know I gave Mini-Shopaholic 2 stars too but that book should have never happened as that series should have already been done. But this? Had such potential and actually started out highly entertaining (even though the character totally reminded me of Becky Brandon but instead of having a lack of control when it came to shopping, this main character had a lack of control for doing anything remotely smart.) When I pick up a Sophie Kinsella novel I expect light-hearted entertainment with several giggles thrown in for good measure. Yes, there were a few giggles... at the beginning. And then all enjoyment I attained quickly began to deteriorate as the story took a steady downhill path. The story is told from the point of view of sisters Lottie and Fliss. Lottie was under the impression that her boyfriend was about to propose and after he doesn't she ends up breaking it off completely. After every heartbreak in her life, Lottie has always done something drastic and spontaneous including new tattoos, the purchasing of new property, and even joining a Cult. But this post-heartbreak decision really takes the cake: she decides to follow through on a pact made with an old boyfriend, and they both get married. (Even though she knows nothing about him and hasn't even seen him since she was 18... which was 15 years ago.) Fliss is determined to stop her sister from ruining her life and having to go through the painful divorce that she herself is currently going through. She comes up with a plan to intentionally sabotage their Wedding Night so they're unable to consummate the marriage which will allow her to simply get an annulment. Because it can't be possible that Lottie actually LOVES this man... is it? I have a huge issue with people that take it upon themselves to take action in your life all because they think they know what's best for you. Even if it's family. And this story was one blaring example of that. Fliss did anything and everything to prevent them from consummating their marriage because she knew without a doubt in her mind that Lottie just wasn't thinking clearing and that Fliss was the only one that could help her see the light of day. All of the roadblocks that Lottie and her new husband Ben continued to run into were mildly humorous.. at first. The TV that blared The Teletubbies that for some reason couldn't be turned off, when they were put into a suite with two twin beds instead of a king, and even when they were caught trying to complete the task in the airport bathroom. It was all fun and games... at first, but when Fliss advised the staff to give the couple peanut oil instead of massage oil which caused Lottie to break out as she's allergic to peanuts? That was not funny. Maybe I personally have too many food allergies that are not humorous in the least but having her sister do that to her was not only far from funny but was quite upsetting. Basically, we have two morals to this story: Lottie needs to learn not to make such drastic decisions when life gets her down. Maybe if she had given it some thought she shouldn't marry her boyfriend from when she was 18 because she knows next to nothing about him only a few days after breaking up with her boyfriend. Fliss needs to learn that she can't control everything in her life (or anyone else's). She may currently be going through a hard and bitter divorce but that doesn't mean that her sister is incapable of falling in love, or getting herself out of sticky situations. Sophie Kinsella is one of my favorite authors ever and despite my two-star review I still recommend this one to die-hard Sophie fans. Why? Because even if someone had told me this book was a massive time-waster you know what? I still would have read it. Because it's by Sophie. So please, read this, I'm eager to discuss this with someone.

    Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella Was this book really written by Sophie Kinsella? I mean yes it has her usual style of protagonist's, but in this novel, I couldn't even find the tiniest way to like them or to sympathize with them. This book was all about one lie after another. Three out of the four main characters spent the entire novel lying their knickers off and it was `always for the good of someone else' or even worse, simply lying to oneself so they could keep telling themselves that what t Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella Was this book really written by Sophie Kinsella? I mean yes it has her usual style of protagonist's, but in this novel, I couldn't even find the tiniest way to like them or to sympathize with them. This book was all about one lie after another. Three out of the four main characters spent the entire novel lying their knickers off and it was `always for the good of someone else' or even worse, simply lying to oneself so they could keep telling themselves that what they are doing is all for love. This is a book where you have to go beyond suspending your disbelief and into out-right fantasy-land; because there is no way that in the real world that something like these machinations could ever happen. At least I whole-heartedly pray that these types of things could never happen. Lottie expected her long-term boyfriend Richard to propose to her, and when he did not she went off the deep end. Oh, it didn't happen right away. It took a while as it usually does for her and her sister Fliss was quite worried about her. However, what Fliss never expected was that Lottie would mend her broken heart by marrying someone she had had an affair with 15 years ago when she was just a teenager. Fliss seems to think that if she could keep her sister from consummating her marriage then things would work out in the end... right! What follows is the story of Lottie and Ben trying their darned hardest to consummate the marriage and being thwarted at every opportunity. This should have been an uproariously funny novel. It was not. It became painfully unfunny, pathetic, frustrating and downright annoying at times. I really wanted to throw this book against the wall I was so frustrated with it, but I plodded on. I just had to see how it ended. Unfortunately, it ended JUST the way you would have expected it to end. It ended on a trite, cliche, cute, too sweet to be real note that had me nearly in a diabetic coma. With a storyline like this; trite, shallow and unlikable characters, I can truly say I will never read this book again and pray they never make a movie out of it.

    I usually like light-hearted reads, but “Wedding Night” is beyond cheesy, cringe-worthy, and unbelievable. The two main characters are supposed to be professional women but their stupid actions do not mesh. I actually didn't like any of the characters at all, and it felt absolutely manipulative throughout. As far-fetched as Sophie Kinsella’s stories go, this one is too unbelievable.

The concept of chasing after two impulsive people to stop them from getting it on during their honeymoon is an interesting one, and maybe it could be pulled off with different characterizations or with a different premise. But what they're trying to stop from happening, and the attitude and manner in which they try to stop it...well, it stretches way too far beyond suspension of disbelief. That element of crassness...it's too crude! I want fun, cheerful, affable and charming characters when I read this genre. I picked this up to have my mood lifted, not to be annoyed. It's meant to be funny, and maybe there was some future comedy of errors/sexcapade film in mind when it was written. It just doesn't ring true, though. The chemistry is off, and it doesn't hold together or deliver happy laughs -- just uncomfortable ones. I am a big fan of Kinsella's work, but this book was extremely disappointing. It lacked her usual finesse and wit I've come to love in her other books. It just doesn't hit its mark.

    Aaaahh I think I just really need to be in the right mood for Sophie Kinsella books. I really do love so many of them!! Sometimes they're super fun, fluffy reads... but other times I get SO ANNOYED with the immature main characters. And this was one of those times. I just wanted to chuck the book out the window like

    This is a hard book to review because I wanted to like it so much because I generally like books by this author but it fell disastrously flat for me and I am so sad because her last novel "I've Got Your Number" I actually ended up liking a lot!

After my mess last year, I had to make sure I was judging this book on it's own qualities and not my love for the author ;) I think what the biggest problem is for me with this novel is that there really isn't a single character that isn't an idiot. I mean, we are all idiots in some form but this book has them in spades. Most of Kinsella's books revolve around the one heroine that is a dingbat and gets themselves into one scrape after another while around her is a slew of pragmatic people. This book is a bunch of hair brained idiots and you don't feel yourself rooting for anyone because they are all morons! Lottie rushes into a marriage on the heels of a breakup, Fliss makes one bad decision after another trying to keep her sister from getting married, Ben doesn't seem to have more than an iota of a redeeming quality in him, Lorcan is probably the best of the lot but he has issues himself and even Richard you want to smack a time or two. The only character I was cheering for was Noah, the compulsive liar! That's NOT good. I really, really, really was looking forward to a fun dip in the silly book pool with this novel but even as a lighthearted beach read I can't recommend it. I finished it, so there is that. There are way too many better books out there to spend ones time enjoying.

I haven't been disappointed that much by a book in quite a while.

    Yeah.... I am a major Kinsella fan. In fact I own every single book she's done under Sophie Kinsella, and I still re-read Twenties Girl every few months. My expectations, you can imagine, we're super high for this book. However it just didn't cut it. My brain kept shouting "How could anyone be so STUPID?" the whole time I was reading Lottie's POV. Eventually I skipped Lottie and Ben's story and went straight to Fliss and Lorcan. They were at least bearable and had some pretty good amusing and end Yeah.... I am a major Kinsella fan.

Eventually I skipped Lottie and Ben's story and went straight to Fliss and Lorcan. They were at least bearable and had some pretty good amusing and endearing moments. I guess I didn't feel any particular connection to any of the characters. Which is strange because one of things I love most about a Kinsella novel is how much I can relate to the main character, even thinking aloud "YES...I totally do that too!" But I didn't do that once for this book. So I can't believe I'm rating a Kinsella book so low, but it's the truth (something ironically that none of the characters in this book could do and that's why everything blew up to gigantic unrealistic proportions).

    First things first, I absolutely adored Wedding Night. There are so many mixed reviews about this book, and I will be honest to say I was hesitant to start it because of the negative reviews I had read. I saw so many references to how this was nothing like Kinsella's previous books, how they couldn't stand one or both of the characters, and was just overall disappointed. I don't understand these negative reviews at all. Was this different than previous Kinsella books? Yes. But that in no way made First things first, I absolutely adored Wedding Night.

I don't understand these negative reviews at all. Was this different than previous Kinsella books? Yes. But that in no way made it rubbish. I loved the alternating point of view, and I ended up loving both Lottie and Fliss. I laughed out loud so many times, and the Kinsella storytelling was still quite evident. “If Muhammad won't come to the mountain, the mountain has to cancel all his plans and get on a plane.” Lottie. She was so adorable. She wanted so much to be married to Richard and when that went down the drain she jumped at the chance to marry Ben, even though they had not seen each other for ages. I didn't take offence to the traumas she had to go through on her honeymoon at the hands of her sister Fliss. I thought they were quite funny. Even though I knew she was feeling miserable, we all knew it was going to work out in the end. “My great moment of triumph ... It's all turned to dust. I wasn't the heroine of the hour. I was the thoughtless, stupid villain.” Fliss. I think because Lottie's name appears first in the synopsis, a lot of people assume that this is her story. I also think that is why a lot of people say they didn't like Fliss, because she took up a lot of the story. I don't think this is Lottie's story at all. This is a moment in both of their lives where one event has turned into a life changing moment for them both. I loved Fliss. Were the actions that she took to prevent Lottie and Ben from 'putting the sausage in the cupcake' extreme? Absolutely yes.. but they were hilarious. I can't even caught how many times I laughed out loud. And seeing as how I listened to the audiobook, and a lot of times I was at lunch at work... I had quite a few people looking my way. “You can't switch sides!" I glare at him in fury. "I was never on your side," retorts Lorcan. "Your side is the nutty side.” I also loved the side characters, Richard and Lorcan. I had to warm up to Richard at first, but once I saw how much he truly cared for Lottie it was easy to love him. And Lorcan? I fell in love with him. His own story touched my heart, and I adored his interactions with Noah, Fliss' son. It was a joy to watch him and Fliss move closer together as the story went on. Ben was just a tool for most of the book, and I think my dislike for him is what helped me find the tormented honeymoon so darn funny. I would strongly recommend this book to any Chick Lit fan, as mentioned before it is different from other Kinsella books but it is still really great. You will laugh, that is guaranteed. “You fall in and out of love, but when you really love someone...it's forever.” This is my first review for an audiobook version. I used to be a member of Audible years ago when I had to commute a fair distance to work. Now that I no longer have that commute I never really found myself with much time to listen to them. But I decided that when I was doing such things as cleaning, showering and sometimes at lunch at work, instead of listening to music it would be better to be 'reading' a book. So, I am a proud renewed member of Audible and will always have one audiobook on the go, on the side of my normal Kindle reading. It took me about three weeks to get through these 13 hours, but the story flowed nicely and I never found myself lost when I went to restart my listening. I loved the narrators Finty Williams and Beth Chalmers. They were easy to listen to and I enjoyed the way they altered their voice when speaking for a male character. So as far as the audible version is concerned, I give two big thumbs up. Christine Rainy Day Reads

    Terrible. Just Terrible. Let me just say, I LIKE Sophie Kinsella. Can You Keep a Secret? Adorable! The Undomestic Goddess? Funny! Cute! So I went in expecting to like Wedding Night. In fact, I tried really hard to like it. But this book... it's just awful. There is not one likeable character - not one - in the entire book. Each person we're introduced to is more irritating and incompetent than the last. The plot is inane and predictable and the whole book is about a hundred pages too long. A little Terrible.

Each person we're introduced to is more irritating and incompetent than the last. The plot is inane and predictable and the whole book is about a hundred pages too long. A little excerpt to show one of the particularly grating things about Wedding Night: "Oh, Fliss ..." She erupts into a massive sob. "I really, really though he was going to propooooooose...." "Oh God. Oh Lottie." I cradle the phone, wishing it was her. "Lottie, sweetheart-" "I spent three whole years with him and I thought he loved me and wanted babeeeeees... But he didn't! He didn't!" And no, I did not add those extra o's and e's to make a point. The book is actually written like that. I really don't like writing a bad review of a Sophie Kinsella book, because usually they're lovely. But if you're like me and you've read a few bad reviews and you're thinking, "Oh, I'll just buy it anyway- maybe they're wrong!" Well... I reckon you'd be better off re-reading one of her old books instead.

    So it's fair to say I disliked this book; after all, I created a new 'hate reading' shelf in its honour. I should preface this review by noting that I like chicklit and I've enjoyed Kinsella in the past (Twenties Girl in particular). But damn, what went wrong here?

I should preface this review by noting that I like chicklit and I've enjoyed Kinsella in the past (Twenties Girl in particular). But damn, what went wrong here? I think she was aiming for screwball comedy or even Shakespearean farce, wherein the love plot (or, in this case, shagging plot) becomes more and more convoluted with lots of situational japes and bedroom mishaps. In actuality, it reads like dangerously divorced from reality headcase meets sociopath-slash-sex addict, and her enabling sister - who I think is supposed to provide the balanced, more mature point of view - has a temporary break from reality trying to impede their nuptials. Except more cringe-worthy. Miraculously, no one is committed and/or loses their job. It's all very romantic. Succinctly, Lottie goes full on bunny boiler on her longtime fella Richard and decides that he's going to propose because she is actually completely unhinged and believes he is speaking in a secret code that only she can understand. No, really. He says words, she hears the opposite, and it's supposed to be an endearing ditzy breakup of miscommunication instead of disturbing. Anyhow, she dumps him, because she's a motherfucking adult. Cue her teenage fling drifting back into her life. Ben is supposed to represent that devastating shag-fest that you had at age eighteen and never quite got over, but from the moment he appears on the page he behaves like a dodgy sex pest who rubs up against you on a packed subway train and then jizzes down your best party frock before asking you out for a drink. He is vile. These two geniuses get married on a whim, because they decide that relationships with getting-to-know-you are trumped by chemistry and their mutual desire to start a family. They'll hold off the shagging til their wedding night for plot reasons that aren't important and make no sense anyhow. Enter Fliss, Lottie's more sensible elder sister...which isn't saying a lot. What makes it so frustrating is that these women are written as confident, capable career ladies, holding decent jobs with responsibilities. And then they go and behave like absolute fuckwits. Occasionally Kinsella lays off the cringe-scenes to provide some quite endearing dialogue or interaction, but that almost makes it worse when they snap right back into behaving like tools. So yeah, Fliss realises that the marriage can be neatly annulled if they don't do the deed (and she's worried that Lottie The Genius might get up the duff), so she orchestrates many, many improbable scenes on Ben and Lottie's honeymoon, thanks to a helpful hotel owner, whilst rushing over to Greece to put Lottie in a straightjacket or something. There's a whole subplot with Ben's business partner Lorcan as a love interest for Fliss, which I actually didn't mind, involving Fliss's son and ex-husband that helps to give Fliss a bit of emotional depth...which then gets utterly shafted. Fliss becomes completely deranged in her attempts to curtail any canoodling and it's actually an even draw in the end between which sister is the biggest moron. And then they all live happily even after. Except for Ben, who hopefully contracts some kind of rare penile disease and dies in pain.

Her books are light and fluffy reads and are always quick to bring a smile to my face. However for the first time the initial reviews I had read for her latest book Wedding Night hadn’t been that great, but it was a Kinsella book so I knew I would be reading it regardless. Lottie has been waiting for the night that her boyfriend Richard will propose for a long time now. He’s been dropping hints for a few days now and she can’t contain her excitement any longer. But the night that was meant to be the night of her dreams ends up going wildly wrong. Lottie’s known to make rash decisions when things have not gone her way, so her sister Fliss has every right to be worried. And Lottie proves her right, after things didn’t go to plan with Richard; she gets a phone call out of the blue from her boyfriend of 15 years ago Ben. They end up going for a meal and decide to get married. (This is a few days after her break up with Richard). Fliss tries to do everything she can to stop this charade from going ahead, but Ben’s best friend Lorcan ends up frustrating Ben so much that they have a rush marriage and go off to spend their honeymoon where they first met 15 years ago in Greece. But Fliss decides she’s having none of it and that the only way they can get out of the sham of a marriage is by not consummating their marriage in the first place. So she gets the manager of the hotel they’re staying at involved to stop them from consummating their marriage any way possible until she gets there! Usually when it comes to Kinsella’s books I’m able to overlook the far-fetched stories or extreme lengths some characters may go too, but I think with Wedding Night, it was a bit too much for me. Which sister goes to extreme lengths to prevent their sister from consummating their marriage? I know Fliss cared, but there were other ways she could have gone around this. Lottie was a little head strong and sort of had tunnel vision ideas where everything she thought she was doing was right. She would never stop to think about the consequences until afterwards. I did initially have a really hard time connecting to Lottie’s character because of this and was thankful to the dual pov’s that we were given in this book. Because I think if I had Lottie’s pov throughout I probably would have knocked another star off my rating. The story however and Lottie did begin to grow on me as soon as Fliss got the hotel staff involved, it was funny seeing another butler intervene whenever things were hotting up for Ben and Lottie. And I really enjoyed learning about Fliss’s back story and her trip over to stop Ben and Lottie was a truly eventful one. Wedding Night was a fun read, but unfortunately I didn’t end up enjoying it as much as I’d hoped. I think if I was able to overlook some of the issues that I had and may be the ending didn’t up the way it had I could have given Wedding Night four stars. But despite Wedding Night not being Kinsella’s strongest read for me, it has not put me off from picking up any of her future books.

Wedding Night is about Lottie, who is sick of all her long-term boyfriends who are commitaphobes, desperate times call for desperate measures, she even does the most drastic thing to marry her boyfriend of three years, Richard. Rejected, she falls into the arms of her summer love, Ben whom she had a fling with fifteen years back. Judgement clouded and feeling rather silly, she jumps to marriage with Ben, sans the wedding rings and big white ceremony - a stop at the wedding registry office and off to Greece! This has to be Sophie Kinsella's first ever book, where the book is written from different character's POVs. You see, Sophie K has a knack to create loveable, sweet and down-to-earth heroines and in Wedding Night it is no exception. I really adored Lottie as she is an incredibly warm character, with her naivety and terrible "Unfortunate Choices" whereas I really admired her sister, Fliss who is sort of a mother-figure to Lottie, matured and sensible. The book is written from Lottie and Fliss's perspectives, pinging back and forth on what is happening in the book and I really think it makes the book really refreshing and exhilarating! Not only we will be introduced to one lovely heroine, but two! Again, Sophie K manages to create a wonderful cast of characters, from Fliss's adorable little boy to the moody, brooding Lorcan and heartbreakingly handsome Ben. Like every Sophie Kinsella book, there will be many sub-plots which will contribute to the main plot, say Fliss's draining divorce. I won't delve much into the book as this is supposed to be a review, not a synopsis and I wouldn't want to spoil it for you. Let's just say I really loved the book and seeing as it's a Sophie Kinsella novel, it's another best-seller under her belt. The thing about Sophie Kinsella's book is: it never gets wrong. Nothing this woman writes couldn't make you smile or laugh or make you want to reach out to the heroine. And I find it immensely amazing, only a few authors I have come across who share the same ability. Verdict: Honestly, it's a Sophie Kinsella novel, what can go wrong? It's pure, unadulterated chick lit which you will devour because you're too caught up in the flow of the story to realise! As Sophie is already a household name in the genre, expect the best from her as she delivers another sparkling novel which will brighten your day or lift your spirits, and get ready to be transported to the beautiful, scenic Greek island. The perfect beach companion, Saturday night-in treat and well, whenever you feel like escaping to a different world! Come on, it's Sophie Kinsella. So you'll just have to go with what she has written and be blown away by this romantic comedy! Rating : 5/5

    Wedding Night isn't my first Sophie Kinsella book, but its the first I've read in a while - and it was so refreshing to read another of her books! They're always so entertaining, funny, and easy reads! Wedding Night was no different; it had me giggling throughout! The story follows two sisters as one embarks on an impulsive wedding to a man she hasn't seen in fifteen years, and the other attempts to stop the wedding night from going ahead.

Like all of the Sophie Kinsella books I've read, the situations that the main characters find themselves in are ridiculous, however they have you hooked! You need to know how it will all turn out, and what lengths they'll go to! The book alternates between Lottie and Fliss, and for me they definitely had distinct voices! Both were a little crazy at times, but both very likeable! Although I certainly wouldn't have supported Fliss's immediate wedding! I really enjoyed both POVs! The romance in the book was good as well, I hated Richard at first (view spoiler)[ after the botched proposal thing at the start (hide spoiler)] but actually he became one of my favourite characters! The chemistry between him, Lottie, and Lorcan was so well done! They were hilarious together! Overall, Wedding Night is the sort of book that you should pick up when you're craving a bit of easy, light hearted romance. No big dramas here, but lots of laughs! That was exactly what I needed!

    Sophie Kinsella has lost her touch, I think. I was excited to finally read her latest novel, but it resulted in disappointment. It was not engaging as her previous best sellers such as Shopaholic series or Twenties Girl, my favorite so far. All the characters are annoying, in their own way. It's like none of them has the right sense and mind. I think Kinsella tried to be funny but I didn't find the humor funny. It was stupid and silly. The book was not boring, actually.

I could bear shallow plots (that's what chick lits mostly are, and that's what I want to read to clear up my head after stressing over work), but the narration was just plain. I could put down the book whenever I wanted without feeling curious about how the story would turn out. Overall, this novel, I don't know how else to put it, sucks.

    So, I read the first 100 pages and started skimming after that. Just couldn't get into it so I don't think it is fair to give it a rating. It was definitely a fluffy, chick lit book, but this one just wasn't for me. I guess I tried and I know now that I just need to stick to the hardcore stuff.

    I read almost all Sophie Kinsella books. It's not the best of her, but quite an easy, fun, summer read.

    Okay, normally my Kinsella experience goes like this: Pick up book, start reading, become incredibly annoyed with hopeless main character, start to fall in love with main character anyway, read book in one sitting and continue to love it forever. Count this one out. Why, you may ask? These main characters are not likeable. At all. Lottie is incredibly smart but also comes off as a major airhead in her quest for marriage.

Fliss countinually ignores her poor son, yet does not understand why he is acting weird and telling lies. Ben is supposed to be a hunk of a man, but comes off as a whiny brat. The only person I remotely liked was Lorcan.. and Noah, poor kid. That being said, I still read the book in a single day. But I felt it lacked the wit, the sensuality and the endearing parts of the characters. They all lie and don't care about it. I just did not feel this story, and I did not root for anyone in the end - I just wanted the story to finish. I am fairly sure I am not going to read this book again.

    3,5 http://mrs-margot.blogspot.pt/ I always like to return to territories like this literary genre, where I always know what I can count on, it's like the expression "go back to the place where we were already happy". Loved the story, the characters, made me laugh at various times. It was a light reading, of unexpected encounters and loves and when the trip of Lottie and Ben begins, the adventure is so hallucinating, frantic and unusual that we can't stop reading.

    Sophie Kinsella's last book, I've Got Your Number, was my absolute fave, and I loved the idea of a Chick Lit story set in Greece, so I've been eagerly anticipating Wedding Night for months. Sadly, I ended up being disappointed with this one. It had its entertaining moments, but the humor just felt slapstick-y and I had a really hard time caring about either heroine. Older sister, Fliss, was a bitter divorcee with control issues, while her younger sib, Lottie, was so flighty, immature, and self-o Sophie Kinsella's last book, I've Got Your Number, was my absolute fave, and I loved the idea of a Chick Lit story set in Greece, so I've been eagerly anticipating Wedding Night for months. Sadly, I ended up being disappointed with this one. It had its entertaining moments, but the humor just felt slapstick-y and I had a really hard time caring about either heroine. Older sister, Fliss, was a bitter divorcee with control issues, while her younger sib, Lottie, was so flighty, immature, and self-obsessed that she was like Becky Bloomwood (Shopaholic) minus the charm. Sophie usually dances around the subject of sex in a cute, fun way in her novels without getting graphic, so it was rather jarring to see such a big focus on sex in Wedding Night. Yes, I know that it was part of the plot (Fliss wanted to stop Lottie from consummating her ill-advised marriage to her teenage love, Ben.), but it seemed like every character in the book was talking about, thinking about, or attempting to have sex. Total overkill and it was an eye-roller after a while. Made me wonder if Kinsella's editor told her that she needed to start sexing up her books in order to please all of the 50 Shades lovers. On the positive side, I did like two of the male characters in Wedding Night. Although Richard, Lottie's longtime boyfriend, was not shown in a favorable light when he was first introduced in the book, he proved himself to be a man of depth and determination. Fliss's love interest, Lorcan, was cut from the same cloth as most of Sophie's heroes - dark, brooding, snarky businessman, but he had surprising personality nuances that I appreciated. He and Fliss shared the bond of both having been through bad divorces, so it made sense that they would be drawn to each other. Would I recommend Wedding Night to my fellow Chick Lit readers? Probably not as I've enjoyed other Kinsella books much more. I'd suggest that they read (or reread) I've Got Your Number or Twenties Girl instead.

    Did not like, pure idiocy. -Lottie was an ungrateful, idiotic, delusional, selfish, insufferable brat who was obsessed with marriage and sex, and based all her thoughts and actions on that. She was a rubbish sister as well, Fliss was going through a messy divorce and dealing with being a single mother, and not once did she show any support to her. Everything was about her and the daft problems she created for herself. -Why did Richard want to be with Lottie?

A spoilt horny man-child who couldn't handle any kind of responsibility, even when all the heavy lifting was done for him. Ben/Lottie were a match made in heaven, they were both terrible. -Fliss and Lorcan had a far more interesting and entertaining relationship than Lottie had with Richard/Ben. The whole book should have been just about them instead of silly cow Lottie.

    I was so looking forward to this after enjoying I've Got your Number. But this isn't of the same mold as the Shopaholic series and other stand alone Sophie Kinsella books which were light, funny and feel good. This felt like a Madeleine Wickham book as it dealt with complicated and mature issues such as sex, divorce and annulment. Readers who like Sophie Kinsella's style but not Madeleine Wickham's would probably not appreciate this. I didn't but finished the book anyway.

    This one gets three stars because I laughed so hard I cried multiple times while reading it. That is the genius of Sophie Kinsella's writing. And it is certainly here in all its screwball comedy abundance. But. I won't be re-reading it like I will I've Got Your Number. I didn't fall in love with the characters as much as I wanted to, because they always zigged embarrassingly silly when they should have zagged genuinely empathetic.

It was a close call at second, too. Part of the problem was what emotional resonance there was was invested in the "secondary" storyline. Lottie's sister Fliss and the irascible but real Lorcan repeatedly came close to stealing the show completely. And I, personally, would have been pleased as punch if they had. But Kinsella frustratingly avoided the depth that would have pushed this reader over from liking to loving. Overall, WEDDING NIGHT is worth a single read for the laughs alone, but a fairly forgettable one in the end.

    2.5/5 stars. I love reading chick-lit because that genre is so relaxing and entertaining, and that's exactly why I picked up "Wedding Night" by Sophie Kinsella. I had been reading a lot of dense and interesting books, but I was in the mood for a light read. This book has what a chick-lit novel should have: Humour, clumsy characters, disastrous love and a slightly predictable plot. However, I don't know if it's me who have grown out of the chick-lit genre or if it was just the book; I felt like t 2.5/5 stars.

I also really disliked the main character Lottie from the very first page; I felt like she was very immature and I couldn't connect with her. Flossie was better as a character snd I adored her son, Noah. Still, I felt like she was a bit too obsessive when it comes to Lottie. I've read other novels by Sophie Kinsella which I loved more; this one just didn't do it for me. Magically, though, I did enjoy myself while reading great parts of it, and that's why it gets 2.5 stars :)
