Publisher's Summary

Holly is a frustrated florist whose life doesn't exactly seem to be coming up roses. Fleeing the houseshare from hell, she moves in with Josh, a sexually confused merchant banker; Kate, a high-flying legal eagle with talons to match; and the gorgeous Addison, who spends his days communicating only with his computer and those who worship at the altar of Captain Jean-Luc Picard.

Holly's desperate to have a one-to-one with Addison, but can she drag him away from his monstrously ugly, not to say jealous internet 'girlfriend', Claudia, or will they just continually get their wires crossed?

    Story
    "Some good moments but not great."

    Storyline and characters stereotypical and annoying but there were some interesting and enjoyable moments. Just not one of her best books.

    Story
    "Dreary with poor characterisation"
    What would have made Talking to Addison better?

    A stronger storyline. The writing attempts to be amusing but fails; flat footed. weak story and unconvincing characters. Well read, but that alone could not save it.


    What was most disappointing about Jenny Colgan’s story?

    Gratuitous swearing, unbelievable characters, weak plot. In fact, no plot, but no strand to the book to keep one on board. I just did not warm to these dreary individuals, or care what happened to them.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    A good attempt at enlivening this book, but it was not enough to make it worth listening to.
    Repeating the epilogue was a strange mistake.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    Disappointing.

    Story
    "Completely bonkers!"
    Any additional comments?

    I have really enjoyed several other Jenny Colgan books, but this one was quite different from the beginning. I couldn't quite grasp the point of the story, but somehow the main character's pitiful life was quite intriguing. By the end of the story I was quite literally sitting in my car and then at work LOL and getting funny looks!

    Overall very enjoyable. Stick with it!
