Read full description of the books Seven Sunny Days:I am so dissapointed. I)'M giving this book 1,5 stars. This half is for the writing itself, it was good, I can't say a bad word about it, it was compact and logical, but that's all. For me there must be a plot, and there wasn't any.
It's the first book since a very long time that I didn't enjoy reading and that I skipped a lot of (even the whole chapters). It was just boring, from the very start. I have read the same bits of the book and didn't realise that I'd read them already.
I didn't like any of the characters. I thought: wow, hen week, would be a lot of fun. Forget it. All of the characters were all the time sad and miserable, always complaining and never happy. And stupid perhaps, I knew what is going on with, what's her name, Yaslyn?, frm the beginning, and all the book characters needed the whole book to see it.
I don't actually remember the names of the characters, I didn't like them, didn't feel any connection to them and I was not interested in their past (this coming bac to the past just made me more bored!), and actually not interested in their future.
The girsl didn't feel like a friends to me, they were always bitching and having rows and I don't think they can count on each other. Yeah, well, the accident, but when somebody is supposed to be drawn all people want to help. They were just so bad to each other, very negativ - y.
There were just any positive feelings in this book.

Encouraged my by English teacher, Mrs. Pocock, I published my first short story in Just Seventeen when I was fourteen years old. The story was called ‘Whatever happened to the wonderful boy I fell in love with’ and I published it under the pseudonym ‘Carolyn Lane’ because it largely consisted of a transcript of an argument I’d had with my boyfriend. I bought a black denim jacket from C & A with the proceeds.
I continued to contribute short stories to Just Seventeen to help pay my way through university. I studied Experimental Psychology at St Edmund Hall in Oxford. Alas, I devoted rather too much time to my social life and staggered away with an unimpressive 2:2. In retrospect, that 2:2 saved my life. It meant that none of the graduate training schemes I had hoped to join would have me. I wouldn’t become an accountant after all. I moved to London and took a series of temp jobs to support myself. It was while I was working at Prelude Audio Books, a company which took erotic ‘classics’ and put them on tape, that I met my first real novelist: David Garnett.
David is a very well respected science fiction writer, who once dabbled with writing erotica under the name Angelique. Prelude was recording the Angelique novels. One afternoon, David spent a couple of hours sitting on my desk, waiting for my boss to come back from a very long publishing lunch to discuss some unpaid royalties. I told David I’d always wanted to be a writer. He dared me to write a novella like Angelique’s. A few weeks later, I handed him my first full-length manuscript. David cast his experienced eye over my scribblings, helped me tweak it and then passed it on to his editor at Little Brown. Incredibly, she made an offer on it. My dream of becoming a proper writer was reborn.
That first book was called ‘Inspiration’. It centred on the sexual shenanigans of a group of artists in St Ives. Wary of embarrassing my parents, I published ‘Inspiration’ as Stephanie Ash. Four more Stephanie Ash novellas followed, helping me to pay my rent and attract the attention of a literary agent. In 1997, I published my first Chris Manby novel, ‘Flatmates’…
Thirteen novels on the single life as Chris Manby later, I’ve just published ‘Getting Over Mr. Right’ as ‘Chrissie Manby’ (apparently too many people are under the impression that I am a bloke!).
I live in London and when I’m not writing (in fact, even when I’m supposed to be writing) I spend an awful lot of time on Twitter. Follow me on @chrissiemanby.
