Once her past is revealed, her behaviour towards her mother completely changes and that happened too fast to be believable. Recommended to snna by: The book seemed to be a book about nothing, but I kept reading as the author has a style that begs the reader to keep going, and as fast as one can. Thus, it can’t have been earth-shatteringly amazing.
Being Committed Book Summary and Study Guide
Jan 05, Becky rated it did not like it Shelves: Anyhow there were some funny moments in the book, such as when Jason proposed to Hannah. The entire book is basically just “what Hannah thinks about things” and it’s hard to stay focussed or interested.
All this reading makes me never want to go back. I can understand her views on life and opinions but the way she just kept rambling on and on and on was frustrating.
The story itself however didn’t have a lot of action or gravity to it. Jason agrees to give Hannah another chance if she promises to resolve her intimacy issues, visit a therapist and make amends with Jack, her ex-husband, who’s now a successful theater agent. I fear I won’t be reading any more books from her though. Return to Book Page.
Even Jack, who presumably we are meant to like, is judgmental, stubborn and self-absorbed. Sep 17, Susan Swansburg rated it liked it. Hannah and her family make even the craziest, most dysfunctional family look normal by comparison. It was all delving into the psychology of Hannah, her past and why she had trouble committing to relationships. But would she have said maxtedd quite so quickly had she known that only a month later he’d have gotten engaged to another person?
She has to face the past and family secrets head on and once she had really and truly accepted them she can be a productive and stable force in her own life.
It is written in first person with self-depricating humor that I just love. I loved Maxted’s Running in Heels and in fact reread it often.

Aug 09, Anna rated it liked it. The book is also written by a British author, who heavily uses British slang and colloquialisms that often went over my head as an American so I missed many of the jokes of the book. Let me tell you, I did not expect to start laughing with such force that my boyfriend came from the other room to see what was the matter, only to see me smiling, gasping for air, with tears flowing from my eyes, and my arms clutching my sides.
She has a steady job working as a private investigator albeit a mediocre one ; a devoted boyfriend of fiveyears, Jason; and a wonderful relationship with her dad it’s a shame her mother is such a lost cause. I just could not continue fooling myself that this book would live up to that standard. Maxted tosses barbs like a champion darts player, and she paints a scathingly hilarious picture of her misguided but appealingly frank heroine.
I liked the main character, Hannah and thought she was funny, sarcastic and enjoyed the fact that she wasn’t a girly girl. Maxted doesn’t need an early summer release date to get books moving—expect this to hit bestseller lists as well as beach towels.

It will make you question your actions against those in your relationships. I forgot who she ends up with in the end, but like, who cares. I was slightly inclined to not want her to end up with either of the potential mates because they both seemed to be jerks in different sorts of commitetd.
