9780006531777: Talking to Addison

A sparkling new romantic comedy from the acclaimed author of Amanda's Wedding.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?

Review:

Jenny Colgan's second novel, Talking to Addison, arrives with a flourish following the success of her debut, Amanda's Wedding. Sharp, quirky one-liners complement merciless observations of human foibles and the London scene to make this romantic comedy a cut above the rest.

The story opens with the modern-day heroine Holly trapped in the flat-share from hell with members of Scary Clean Freaks Incorporated, ruled by the obnoxious Carol who "dispensed ... Robert de Niro-to-doomed gangster stares." Even when Holly escapes the suburban inquisition, life still isn't a bed of roses--she's an unemployed florist, in love with a recluse, and being bullied. She's in good company, though, when she moves in with a bunch of equally maladjusted misfits: Josh, a terminally nice boy, has issues; Kate, the high-flying, no-nonsense career girl, wilts every time a married man comes along; and then there's Addison, the drop-dead-gorgeous lodger ("Johnny Depp in geek form") who never leaves his room, already has a girlfriend (albeit over the Internet), and is a certified Star Trek fan.

With Talking to Addison, Colgan ties together her comedic talents and her flair for storytelling to create an offbeat, hilarious tale about an ordinary girl's search for Mr. Right--with the inevitable Mr. Oddballs getting in the way. --Nicola Perry, Amazon.co.uk
