This is my first book by this author - who I thought wrote funny novels. Strange premise - why would two people who are supposed to be in love be so afraid to find out that they should be together for 68 more years? Parts were funny but then it too a quick change to very dark and depressing story. Did not really figure out why the story took this change. Don't know it I will take a chance on another of her books - there are way too many out there to read.

I thought the concept of the book sounded a tad silly. It was hard to get into at first, but I'm glad I stuck with it. It ended up being quite enjoyable, and hard to put down.

Definitely not my favourite by Ms. Kinsella. Not a great plot and I felt no connection to the characters.

Couldn’t get into it. Horrible premise. It’s too bad because I love her Shopaholic series

I thought this was a fun read. Sylvie and Dan find out that they are most likely going to have another 60+ years together as a married couple and they find it a little overwhelming. Sylvie decides they will make it if they don't become too predictable and start surprising each other on a regular basis. The surprises all go wrong of course!

was hoping for a fun read after a serial killer thriller, this was not it. somewhat haphazard and not one of kinsella's better efforts. it was just...okay.

Always love Sophie Kinsella. Her writing is always wonderfully light hearted but still so interesting. I could not help but laugh while reading and had a stranger sitting next to me even make comment that the boy I was reading must be good.

Don't let the initial ditzy airhead portrayal of Sylvie turn you off of reading this novel. It is quite a surprisingly good novel!

When Dr. Bamford tells Dan & Sylvie that he expects they will have 68 more years together, their response is shock and terror at the thought of 'how can anyone expect to spend so much time with only one person'?

Longevity, loyalty and partnership prove to be prized promises as Sylvie discovers truths about her childhood, herself and Dan.

Left me smiling and feeling very positive.

I love her books written under another name, which escapes me at this point but catalog would know. Maybe she's using the Kinsella books in the same vein since they don't seem like the Shop Aholic books.
