Thirtynothing: A Novel – Lisa Jewell – Google Books

Dig on a trip down memory thirtynlthing causes strife in their rela Dig Ryan just turn thirty and wakes up once again with a young girl in his bed leaving him question where he is really headed with his life. Thirtynothing Lisa Jewell No preview available – A buoyant novel about friendship, lust, growing up, and growing older, thirtynothing is sure to delight fans of Ralph’s Party and to win this jewelll, thirtysomething author a wealth of new readers.

The plot covers where the characters are now and then goes back and reviews how their relationships started, grew and ended earlier in their lives. We all must start somewhere and keep taking those hard steps forward within out true selves. I like thirtynohting fact that Lisa Jewell has combined real life drama and love with real comedy and OMG moments.

Dig, who was a complete cleanness freak put so easily up with Delilah, his first jeqell Dig and Deen and their crazy lives.

It was a good story- that’s just it. At times thirtynohing characters also seemed a bit far-fetched – yet I still enjoyed it. Kind of an eye opener-lots of people waste relationships and miss out on things that are right in front of them just because they are too afraid or they get stuck in “friend zone” territory.


Upon reflection a I nearly didn’t finish this, it took so very long to get to the point, and was oh so predictable.

They lia to be best friends at school, but drifted apart when Dig started going out with the beautiful Delilah. If you’ve never read anything by this author before, then you’d probably give it 3 stars. I was hoping this book would be a little different than the usual chick lit books. At other times, it was rather predictable and I found myself wanting to slap the main characters.

Read, highlight, and take notes, across web, tablet, and phone. It did change slightly but not enough to be predictable but then again I guess you kind of know this going in so its your own fault for expecting anything different.

Jul 07, Beth rated it did not like it. When I bought it, I was really looking forward to this book.


In fact, I could have written this review with just one word — perfect — but you might have felt a bit shortchanged, so I’ll expand.

Dig Ryan just turn thirty and wakes up once again with a young girl in his bed leaving him question where he is really headed with his life.

Feb 05, Katrina rated it liea it.

In my spare time I run, dance and occasionally tread the boards with my local amateur dramatics group. Despite its predictability, I especially enjoyed the relationship between Dig and Nadine. Phil was so horrible that me made my skin crawl but Nadine just let him into her life!


An excellent use of dual narrative makes both of them seem very real, and flashbacks are incorporated neatly throughout in a very natural way which is hard to find elsewhere. Hilarious moments are mixed with touching emotion and the story is very well balanced.

So, Nadine looks up her first love, Phil. The dialogue actually sounds like authentic spoken language although sometimes the characters do tend to make too-long speeches and there are some memorable lines.

It is not easy putting yourself out there particularly as an author or whatever but each bit matters. Jewell tells the story via a male protagonist ‘Dig’, his relationship with childhood friend Nadine, as it maps their journey from playground to the approaching big Instead, they both go out with a steady stream of short term and highly unsuitable boyfriends or girlfriends, whilst reserving their more quality moments for each other.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Overall, I liked the book, but I wasn’t sure that I did up until the last pages. I also have two step children aged twenty one and seventeen so family life is never dull. I found the characters’ actions hard thirtybothing believe; their motivations for doing rash and unbelievably foolish things were weak.

Upon reflection as I write this it has also given me a sense hope. Feb 21, Dora Okeyo rated jewe,l liked it.
