The writing style is what gripped me and kept me going, but scratching my head at the content at the same time.

It was just confusing to me as a reader. Witty, sarcastic, self-deprecating and clever, this is platinum-class chick lit. Discover what to read next. This was a predictable book and an easy read.

Detailed Review Summary of Being Committed by Anna Maxted

However, I couldn’t figure out why I kept reading – it just didn’t seem to go anywhere until more than halfway through. I struggled to finish it, which is surprising, given how many good reviews it’s gotten on here and in other places. Her first novel Getting Over It, was semi-autobiographical and based very much around her experience of the death of her own father. This book annoyed me! Anna Maxted is a bestselling author based in North London, England. I love Anna Maxted’s writing I loved this book!

Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. Brookline Booksmith in Brookline, MA. Hannah has to go through a lot of relationships to get back to her one true love. I liked her from the beginning. This woman is a detective but over the book detects things instead about herself and her family.

Apart from his constant stomach problems, he was actually okay. That doesn’t mean Being Committed didn’t throw a few surprises my way. When he proposes maxged she rejects his proposal within a few weeks he is proposed to someone else. What is it when British people? The main character was a cliched ‘zany yet well-meaning’ girl who has trouble with her relationships.

She has to face the past and family secrets head on and once she had really and truly accepted them she can commitged a productive and stable force in her own life. The main character was, in my opinion, completely obnoxious and unlikeable.


I remember all the books on the list – except this one. All in all, the book has very little “story” to it.

Being Committed

Too many books with the potential to be read and too little time to trudge through this one! I dare say the book owes its four star rating to the first paragraph in Chapter May 07, Miss Michael rated it really liked it. At that time, she was married to Jack and cheated on him. It was all delving into the psychology of Hannah, her past and why she had trouble committing to relationships.

Why do authors keep doing that to me? I’m a raddled old divorcee consumed with bitterness and regret.

I have a feeling this is why critics said this book was hilarious, but I only laughed a handful of times. Girl says no because she had a bad experience with marriage when she was like Sep 17, Susan Swansburg rated it liked it.

But it was good up to that point, and it has a good ending. Not only are they easier to get into and stay for a while, but the people are so much less selfish!
