Book review: ‘A Desirable Residence’ by Madeleine Wickham | write meg!

Confessions of a Shopaholic was made into a major motion picture starring Isla Fisher and Hugh Dancy. A Novel of Love and Real Estate. I’m not sure why Wickham felt she had to adopt a pseudonym, but her books as Sophie Kinsella are much more enjoyable—this one was lacking the effervescence, humor, and general wackiness I’ve come to love her for.

What could have saved this book from becoming a desirale mess was a dash of humor, warmth or humanity. Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty.

Write a customer review. Ginny, meanwhile, pins her hopes on would-be actor Piers getting a part in a soap opera, and Jonathan is put on a pedestal by Marcus’s wife, Anthea.


Self-centered Liz Chambers, bored with her job and under a mountain of debt, frequently lashes out at her even-tempered husband, Jonathan, and begins an affair with wealthy realtor Marcus Witherstone, who proposes that Liz and Jonathan rent their unsold house to a young couple, Ginny and Piers Prentice, with whom Liz and Jonathan’s sullen teenage daughter, Alice, strikes up an unexpected friendship. I’m not sure why Wickham felt she had to adopt a pseudonym, but her As a huge Sophie Kinsella desirabls, I was curious to read something by her alter ego, Madeleine Wickham.

De enige reden dat ik het uit heb gelezen is dat ik toch w Nee, dit boek zou ik niet nog een keer lezen of aanraden. Enjoyed this book, along with others by Sophie Kinsella. No worries, this whole book is confusing.

I’m a little sorry I read this one which I think was her first. It’s as if she was up against a deadline and just decided to stop writing. Not recommended unless you’re determined to read everything by this talented author.


Liz and Jonathan have uprooted their family and left their beloved home to pursue a dream — running a tutorial college. Anthea, I think, meant well, but she really didn’t know how to go about motivating her sons. I enjoy quick-read Chicklit, but this one simply stunk. This did not fall into that category. In the midst of reading this novel I finally came to realize and accept that all these characters are simply pathetic; then I was able to enjoy the novel for what it was — a train-wreck only slightly entertaining.

A fun diversion while waiting for a new Sophie Kinsella. AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally. The Gatecrasher Kindle Edition. For me, Liz Chambers was a particularly unlikable character with Marcus Witherstone running a close second. No trivia or quizzes yet.

Daarnaast vond ik het einde een beetje tegenvallen, maar dat kwam omdat het een super erg open einde was.
