Working Wonders book. So different than any other Jenny colgan book however I really enjoyed the fantasy side to this book. Laughs, love, office life  . Oct 19, 2018 Phoebe Baker rated it liked it. Having red all of Jennies later works I have been reading her very early works. As Jenny Coogan and yet to read the Class books under either name. This is very different than her later years. The cupcake, sweet shop and bakery series.

Jenny Colgan rld slightly less ugly than it had been before, and partly because Sandwiches was wearing his tuxedo early, because he was so looking forward to the party. Arthur smiled up at Gwyneth as she walked into the room and she smiled back.

With Working Wonders, this brand of humorous writing is satisfyingly in evidence once more, wedded this time to a complex and intriguing plot. Arthur Pendleton has led an unexciting life, working as a town planner and slowly realising that his life holds few surprises. The elements that made Jenny Colgan's earlier books bestsellers are firmly in place here: quirkily observed characters, capricious plotting and a truly involving sense of the way in which most of us live our lives.

Jenny Colgan is a bestselling author and queen of chick-lit.

Working Wonders by author Jenny Colgan. I read avidly and my taste is eclectic, chick lit being one of the genres I read for a bit of light relief (and all too often boredom). That is exactly why I picked this book and I have to say I got a bit of a surprise

Laughs, love, office life. And a little touch of magic ! From the bestselling author of LOOKING FOR ANDREW MCCARTHY and AMANDA'S WEDDING. Laughs, love, office life. And a little touch of magic! Gwyneth Morgan loves her job. And she's good at it -- she's never faced a challenge she can't handle -- until she meets Arthur Pendleton and his motley crew. Gwyneth sets Arthur a challenge that makes his heart sink. His team can't even find their own desks, let alone win a prestigious competition. Pitted against his ex-girlfriend, as well as his love rival and deadly enemy, Arthur is forced to break the law and overcome massive obstacles as he embarks on his quest to achieve the impossible -- and maybe, just maybe, win the heart of the enchanting Gwyneth. As Gwyneth learns some surprising revelations about the man she'd once considered just an inept colleague, she's forced to reconsider. Is it possible that Arthur is her knight in shining armour?

I know many people would stop reading this review beginning with the review title itself, but let me tell you, if you have even 1% of a crazy , wild spirit in you i'm sure you'll like the book.

I have a lot of the crazy , wild spirit in me and so i completely related to the main character in it -'Arthur'!

The beginning may get on your nerves a bit , but have patience enough to continue with it, it gets better and better as you turn the pages.

It's basically a very hilarious (believe me, i almost died laughing!!) story about this guy called Arthur who's life's pathetic..his job, his colleagues( many of them may remind you of those very irritating characters in your own work place , a very humorous exaggeration ofcourse) and his relationship with his partner for a long time , all of them cause him utter frustration.

But one fine day he goes to work and realises he's the boss now and has to lead his employees , a bunch of clowns on an almost impossible project.At this point , the mysterious office psychiatrist( my fav character after arthur himself) comes into picture changing his life completely by revealing to him that the blood in his veins is inherited from one of the most famous legends in the history of this world.

What ensues is a funny , completely unimaginable struggle by Arthur towards completing the project with the help of his employees , realising the powers and magic in him. For the ones who are romantically inclined there is the love story of Arthur and one of his pretty female (and probably the only sane) employee.

What i like about this book is that , it gives you a feeling that anything is possible , you may accept it or not. And that whoever we may be , however pathetic our lives may seem, all of us have the power to turn it into something good, and there's no other better way of getting the message across, when it is done in an extremely hilarious and witty fashion.

People who lack imagination and believe in exploring very serious , logical subjects - this is a big no no. But if you are in a state where you are bored and come across the book , do read it - you'll manage a cough , if not a laugh!

I can actually imagine the conversation between this woman and her publisher before this book was written.

"Okay Jenny, your fluff books are doing great. How about you do us some more?"

"Actually, I thought I'd do something different now my name's known. Maybe a thriller or something? I could just get my teeth into some really gory violence."

"...no Jenny. I'm sorry, but we want fluff. We're a fluff publisher. Fluff is what sells now."

"Well, how about fantasy? I just want a change - you know, a break?"

"NO, Jenny. Just fluff. Fluff sells."

So, what we have is... a fluff book. With magic randomly stirred in without warning. And at the end someone dies. Because he gets his eyes shot out. By a paintball pellet.

No, you didn't hear me wrong. A paintball pellet. And there's this really graphic description of how they see yellow and red and that's wrong because the paintballs only carry one colour of the paint and then they realise it's the red of the blood...

Score one for Jenny against the publishers I suppose.
