Comments Me and You

  • Louise

    Hmm, more like a 2.5 star read for me. I received this in a First Reads giveaway and I've finally gotten around to reading it.The first part of this book is written in a diary entry kind of structure, with v. being used instead of very, even though no other words seem to have been shortened like that. I found this v v annoying! The perspective changes in the next part, which I found much more enjoyable. However, the author had a habit of trying to build suspense where any reader would have guess [...]

  • Stephanie

    Not gonna lieis book started out well but was just too long. By about half way through I no longer cared about where Kitty was or why. The relationships were predictable and the male lead was seriously annoying - I think he was supposed to be all brooding and tortured but came across to me as needy and a bit of a whiner. There was the token "sibling rivalry" nod which is bad in most books but seemed worse in this one because it never really developed. I was left feeling that Angie could have bee [...]

  • Rea Cobb

    When Claudia Carroll's new book Me and You arrived though my letter box the first thing I though was I love the new look to the cover which is a softer look to the authors previous books.When Angie is stood up at the spa for her birthday treat from best friend Kitty she knows something is wrong, unable to make any contact with her friend she calls Kitty's boyfriend Simon together they work hours, days , weeks to try to find Kitty, when the police arrive with shocking news.Kitty loves Simon and A [...]

    Nope. Just nope. Because firstly, what is with the excessive usage of v. v.? Can't you just say VERY VERY? Secondly, I don't get the form of writing. Is it supposed to be a diary? Because the sentences are kinda incomplete. Eg. "Wake up. Don't feel too good." No. JUST NO. You can make the book sound informal without butchering the sentences. OK? Also, the story line is there. Like there was SO MUCH potential in the story. But the way it was told, my God. I died.

  • Sharron

    Couldn't continue after 9% it was slow going and the over use of v everywhere was v v annoying. Just pure laziness. Guess it's just not for me

  • Nicki

    Not bad. The beginning bit, looking for Kitty, dragged on way too much for my liking and what she "did" wasn't as shocking as the book leads you to believe. Quite understandable, really. I enjoyed it more once the revelations started. Then found I was skimming again by the end, as the who ends up was who was totally predictable. This is the first book I have read by this author. She has a pleasant, undemanding (even in spite of the subject matter) style of writing. Reading comments by others, it [...]

  • Siobhan Johnson

    I really liked all the characters in this book and the way you almost thought you were going to predict what would happen only for the story to go in another direction to what you are thinking. The ending to this book is wonderful to so perfectly written. This is a beautiful book that is an exceptional read.

  • Mireya

    If you're in for a light read, don't miss Claudia Carroll's "Me & You". This is the story of Angie's desperation when her best friend Kitty goes missing on Christmas Eve and how finding the reason of this disappearance brings her closer to Kitty's boyfriend Simon and to herself. I love the fact that it is placed in Dublin, bringing the story closer to me as a reader.

  • Caoimhe Levins

    I read it a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it.

  • Safiah Iryani

    Couldn't finish it. I never leave any book unfinished. Even when its boring I would actually jump to the end. But I just couldn't care less where kitty was and what ever happened to her. V annoying and v v v v slow. The use of v instead of very is so annoying!

  • Rebecca Yates

    me and you ,the book started off good ,for the first couple of chapters and then it became very boring and about halfway through the book I couldn't put it down. a good read just bear with it till it picks up.

  • Bronwyn Rykiert

    I have to agree with other reviewers that the first half of the book - Angie's story was had to get through. It did get more interesting when we got to hear Kitty's (Jean's) story - which is really what the book was about.

  • Clare

    Enjoyable beach read but the first half was too drawn out for my liking and a bit repetitive.

  • Ranesa

    I loved it, but ending leaves you hanging. I WANT MORE! LOL

  • June Jones

    The perils of living in an abusive relationship, and the consequence for friends and new partners.

  • Leah

    Claudia Carroll is an author whose books I wait for with bated breath every year. She’s a fabulous storyteller, and I’ve enjoyed so many of her books, so Me and You was always going to be a must-read for me. I thought it sounded so different to her other books, a bit more serious, and I was intrigued as to how it would go. Intrigued if this was how Claudia’s writing career was progressing, and interested to see what came of it. So as soon as I had downloaded my copy of her novel to my Kind [...]

  • Megan Readinginthesunshine

    I need to take a moment to throw huge love out towards this cover…isn’t it BEAUTIFUL? Definitely one of my favourite covers this year, it caught my attention straight away and I couldn’t stop staring at it!The description on the back had my head buzzing with so many questions…What it is that Angie doesn’t know about Kitty? Is there some sort of secret? What is going to happen to Kitty? Will we find out?Without going into too much detail about the story so as not to spoil it, Kitty and [...]

  • Fabulous Book Fiend

    this book has been sitting on my shelf since it was released and I've been desperately trying to get to it, I'm so glad that I finally did. I was hooked into this story right from the very first page. It is a dual narrative of sorts and in Angie's part of the story, her thoughts are written in a kind of diary style, with times and then what is going on in that time. I found this really compelling, diary style books always make me read faster! The other part of the narrative tells us what has hap [...]

  • Grace

    My heart went out to Jean for what absolute torture she went through inflicted by that pool scum. This is such a beautifully written story. How everything went well & fell into place despite all the hurt.

  • Maria Goodin

    This isn't the kind of book I normally pick up. It has a pink, fluffy cover and looks like classic chick-lit, which I generally avoid. But during a week of ill-health when even lifting a book seemed like a lot of effort I plucked this off the supermarket shelf because a) it looked like a dead easy read and b) it was within arms reach. And how pleasantly surprised I was. This book has more to it than meets the eye, and the pink fluffy cover is deceptive. The writing flows in an easy, light-hearte [...]

  • Carol W

    I have to say that when I pick up a title by Claudia Carroll I know I can expect a good story. This was no exception, in fact it is quite a refreshing and new storyline.Not the usual breakup storyline. Angie is not only looking forward to the festivities, but is waiting for her best friend to treat her to a spa day for her Christmas Eve birthday. In a diary style narrative, Angie begins the story by telling the reader that her best friend, Kitty, just would not stand her up on her birthday. Woul [...]

  • Nikki Bywater

    When Angie is stood up by her best friend Kitty on her birthday, she knows there will be a good explanation, but when she gets in touch with Kitty’s boyfriend Simon it soon becomes apparent that Kitty has gone missing. So they begin to search to find out what has happened to her. Only to find that the Kitty they thought they knew and loved may not all she appeared to be.This I have to say is one of the best books I have ever read. Claudia Carroll certainly knows how to write amazing stories. T [...]

  • Sally

    I wasn't sure what to expect from this book as the writer is not one I am familiar with but the blurb on the back sounded promising so I thought I would give it a go. The style of the book is at times diary style and at times something reminiscent of Marian Keyes with short, clipped sentences. The story covers the disappearance of Kitty and how her friends deal with it. Angie as the main character is the first to discover that Kitty has gone when she doesn't arrange to meet her as planned. At fi [...]

  • Natalie TBGWP

    A few chapters into Me & You I was bored, I just could not relax enough to get into the book. It was a bit everywhere and I was getting frustrated. I obviously carried on after putting it down for a while hoping I wouldn't be so narky with it. After reading the closing sentence to the book, I realised it was 5.59 am, I had been reading for four hours straight without realising. A full indication that the book changed it's direction and pulled me in with it's Irish charm, twists and heartbrea [...]

  • Lizzie Palmer

    No. Sorry. Couldn't finish it!!!The book is v . frustrating. vnoying. v v slow. I lost interest in the story and hated the fact that the author couldn't use the word very. For many I don't suppose this would be an issue but for me it just was. I don't usually give up on books - A definate I've started so I'll finish mentality but I couldnt stick with it at all. The fact that I felt nothing when I put it down never to return means I have to rate it low. Maybe I could have lasted it out if it wasn [...]

  • Marilia Cardoso

    It was the first time a read a book from this author and I just enjoy from the 1st page till the last! First because it all happens in Dublin and as I was there like I month ago it was everything familiar, the street's names, some word's only used by Irish people, so for me it really make me fell part of it some how! but anyway is an amazing story about friendship, love and about how some people sometimes need to vanish without saying anything but they always have a good reason for it. I truly r [...]

  • Heather

    Just who is Kitty Hope and why did she run?Angie thinks she knows who Kitty is, but she doesn't really know why she ran, but all will be revealed.This was one of those books where the further into the story you got the more you feel you know the characters and what the outcomes are going to be because you want them to have their happy ever afters!There were moments where I just wanted to scream "enough already, get to the end" but they were few & far between.A really good read that I would r [...]

  • Lindsay

    I did enjoy some parts of this book but, as other readers have commented, it was way too long! The characters were constantly wrestling with emotions and labouring points, whilst the plot itself seemed to drag along.Angie's sections were almost written in a shorthand / diary style - which I found very distracting at times.On a plus side, I enjoyed the unusual subject matter and found Kitty's back story very interesting.This is the first book I've read by this author but i will give her another g [...]

  • Heidi

    Really lovely story, of friendship and love. It's a much more serious take on life than the cover would suggest. Also if you intend to read this book do not read the back cover! it really spoils the story for the first third of the book. **minor spoilers below**The only thing I didn't like was the first reaction of the police in the novel, if Irish police really wait 3 days to take a missing person report I am horrified, that's absolutely ludicrous, but once I finished smarting over that and the [...]

  • Bev Taylor

    i'm fine. i'm sorry. and maybe one day i'll get to explain this is all they hear from kitty after she disappeared from their lives on christmas eve 2 days ago now angie, her best friend, and simon, her soon to be fiancee will learn that they do not know the real kitty at all how will it all pan out? great characters and u really get into the story h/e the one thing that spoilt it for me was the lousy grammar. don't know if this is how the irish speak (no offence meant) or bad proof reading the j [...]
