(59) Swapping Lives by Jane Green

I have now, officially read every book by Jane Green. And the best thing is that I found this one in the Bargain Section at work.

Swapping Lives is about two very different women. One is a features editor for a very popular magazine in the UK. The other is a SAHM to two children in the US suburbs. She lives in the proverbial McMansion, has perfect children & chairs the Ladies League.

Both women are about fed up with their lives. So Vicky, the editor, has this brilliant idea to open up an application process for women who are willing to Swap Lives with a thirty-five year old single woman.

The book does become a bit predictable. As you would suspect, the two women swap lives & discover that the grass is not always greener on the other side. A month long experiment ends after two weeks & things end happily ever after.

It is Jane Green's style of writing. Her obvious understanding of both positions. Of both women that makes the book fun to read. Swapping Lives is not quite as "Chick Lit-ish" as her earlier books, but not quite as literary as her more recent ones.

Overall, a great book & fun read.


Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
