A brand new very funny Christmas novel, from the bestselling author of No-One Ever Has Sex on a Tuesday and Single Woman Seeks Revenge.
There comes a time in every woman’s life when the only answer is to marry George Clooney.
For Michelle, that time is now.
Slogging her guts out in a chicken factory, whilst single-handedly bringing up a teenager who hates her, is far from the life that 36-year-old Michelle had planned.
But marrying the most eligible man on the planet by Christmas could change all that, couldn’t it?
Sometimes your only option is to dream the impossible - because you never know where it might take you…
This is a fun, completely fantastical novel featuring George Clooney, and has not been authorised or endorsed by the wondrous man himself.
When I saw this title – I will Marry George Clooney (… by Christmas) – I just had to laugh. I knew at that moment that would be reading this book. I loved the idea that you should follow your dreams no matter how improbable, unrealistic or unlikely it is for the dream to come true.
I loved Bloom’s previous novels so I was quite looking forward to this. But I was left with a slightly disappointed feel. This isn’t as good. There is something missing. I have to be honest there were times where I cringed at the over-the-top reactions, prehaps they were there to make the book feel like a light and frothy read.
Michelle has a lot to deal with, she works in a chicken farm and has given up her dream job to raise her daughter. But also a lot of people in the book seem to dislike her – her daughter, her mother… So Michelle decides to marry George Clooney, after all he will solve everything, won’t he?
I will Marry George Clooney (… by Christmas) was a fun feel good read. That is bonkers from start to finish!
