What was the joke she d overheard two schoolboys tell last week Why do girls wear make up and perfume Because they re ugly and they stink What a lovely book to pick up off the shelf at my holiday house How disappointing for me that I discovered Monica McInerney only now Anna, Bett and Carrie are three very different and lively sisters with a vast history of love and a past that has torn them apart Bett, the middle sister has always struggled with feeling the least beautiful, things never fell in [...]

I was looking for a quick, fun summer read when I picked up this book Overall it was a fun, light read but I had a hard time getting into it The story is about three sisters from Australia who have had a falling out One of the sisters ends up marrying the other sister s fianc Their grandmother brings them together for her 80th birthday in hopes to bring them back together The story is pretty slow to begin and then tries to add too much in the last one hundred pages It was a very simple read and [...]

The Alphabet Sisters is the 2005 fiction novel by Australian author, Monica McInerney.It was the opening line that hooked me enough to purchase this ebook and give it a go Your sister is married to your ex fianc Yep I had to know .Sadly, the explosive premise promised in the opening chapter is never really delivered.The book is told from various perspectives, but mainly that of Bett the somewhat tubby middle child, who grew up watching boys fall for her sisters and felt the last straw was her be [...]

Monica McInerney s The Alphabet Sisters caught my attention immediately in the book store, promising to be a touching tale of sisterhood and the bonds they share Being a sap for any books about sisters, I swiped it off the shelf and made it my vacation reading.The story begins with the three sisters, who have not spoken for three years united for a party for their beloved grandmother None of the girls are interested in reconciling, after a rather scandalous event rocked their friendship to the v [...]

This isn t my favourite Monica McInerney title That one is Hello from the Gillespies, which was the first one I read and loved I think because I really liked the characters The problem I had with The Alphabet Sisters is that I wanted to shake those three girls quite a few times and tell them to stop being so stupid Thank goodness they had grandmother Lola to do that The other reason was that while the author made it clear what had happened to cause the rift between the girls, she then saw fit, f [...]

I loved most of this book, but she had to add too much sex Not that I don t like sex, but I prefer that with my husband I wanted to just enjoy and laugh and cry with this book and I kept having to skip pages to finish the story.

This book is the kind of story that will have your emotions going on a rollercoaster The Alphabet Sisters is one of the best realistic fiction books I have ever read Anna, Bett, and Carrie are sisters but they are also best friends When they were younger they used to sing together and be called the Alphabet Sisters As anyone would guess they got older though, and soon the Alphabet Sisters started to disappear Even though this happened, the Alphabet Sisters still stayed close That is, until somet [...]

This book spoke to me directly, if ever books had words to say Monica s creations are tangible you can almost reach out and touch her characters through the pages, share their various emotions and feel the insecurities that burden them Bett is chubby yet lovable, and she s never been as comfortable in her own skin as her sisters are The centre of her sisters puns about weight, Bett grew up feeling like a failure in terms of her looks Carrie, blonde and pretty, stole Bett s fianc , which didn t h [...]

Alphabet Sisters was what I consider to be a nice read The characters were fun for the most part I really liked Lola s spunk I hope I am a little like her when I am in my eighties I found Bett s insecurity to be a tad bit annoying, however The book s conclusion was not to my liking I hate spoilers so I will write no on that subject I also found it hard to believe that these otherwise intelligent and empathetic sisters were so obtuse about each other s adolescent struggles.

I tossed up between 3 and 4 stars with this book It is a lovely story, although there are a few mundane parts I ended up loving all of the characters, except the parents of the girls they were a bit unlovable But in the last 100 pages or so there was a twist I wasn t expecting and whilst I ended the book in tears, those last pages cemented in my mind it was a 4 Thanks to a wonderful friend who gifted me this book

Having never before examined a Monica McInerney novel thought would give one a go On the grounds she s an Aussie and that the proposed consumption as an audiobook would enable multi tasking of the unpaid employment that sadly precludes an ability to sit about reading a physical book all day and seem like less of an overinvestment if I didn t like it Happily the second was not the case A not totally predictable plot was enhanced by the expression of the narrator who managed to pop in realistic an [...]

Monica McInerney was recommended to me as an author by my sister I immediately purchased A Taste for It and The Alphabet Sisters for my Kindle After reading A Taste for It I admit to being underwhelmed by the writing style and predictable storyline therefore The Alphabet Sisters has been left unread for over a year, gathering electronic dust in a corner of my Kindle Until now.Blessed with a sunny winter s day I picked up my Kindle and sat on a bench seat in my garden to get acquainted with the Q [...]

I enjoyed this book and thought the author did a great job weaving the tale of three sisters who haven t spoken in three years, after one of them married another one s fiance Now called back home by their grandma to help celebrate her 80th birthday, they re forced to interact with each other and begin to work through their issues together The sisters were all likable, although I definitely had a preference of which ones I liked best and least, and the grandmother was great The author didn t give [...]

Another McInerney story about sisters, family dynamics, secrets and an eccentric matriarch set amidst the Clare Valley in South Australia.I like McInerney stories at least, I know what I m getting They don t completely and utterly rock my world, however I usually read them at times when I need something snuggly and easy And being a South Australian local with ties to the Irish community myself, recognising places and supporting a local author is a nice feeling.So if there is one word that sums u [...]

One of the best books I ve read in a while I LOVED it The whole time I was reading it I was thinking that the author must have two sisters come to find out, she has three She did an amazing job of really using the stereotype of the order of siblings, but not making it too cheesy and obvious The location Australia made it even entertaining Seriously made me want a pushy flashy grandma

I thought this book was just ok Its an interesting story about 3 sisters in Australia, but I was hoping there d be to it being set in Australia and there just wasn t Also, the turn it took towards the end was unnecessary I thought, considering the first 250 pages or so were light hearted for the most part I wouldn t recommend it, but it did keep me interested and could be a good vacation book

This was chick lit predictable and fluffy, but I enjoyed it for what it was It is the story of three sisters who were no longer speaking after a big blowout over various things They are brought back together by a series by their grandmother and find ways to reconnect The plot and the characters are believable, but it didn t require a huge brain commitment to read.

The story of three sisters who reunite at the insistence of their Gram held my attention and had my emotions on display That said, with the exception of Bet and Lola, I didn t really like the main characters Anna was just alright, though she really annoyed me at times and don t get me started on Carrie To explain, briefly, the three sisters used to be an act in their youth Bett, the middle sister, was the least attractive of the three and she felt that significantly She was engaged to Matthew fo [...]
