They have a small close knit group of friends so they have to get along to a degree, but they swear at eachother, slag eachother off behind their backs, they generally just are not meant to be friends, let alone anything else.
The over use of the word 'tool' and 'neanderthal' in the first couple of pages was just something else! Never have I seen them so often repeated to describe the guys she doesn't like!

- Bagging Alice
Luckily for Alice, I agree with her. Surely people don't think like this? Tom says the most derogatory things about women, his attitude sucks. I realise the point of the book, was to let us know how gross he is, and what a 'manwhore' he is, so that when he finally wins Alice round or does he?

But I don't believe men think like that. I refuse to believe men think like that. I certainly don't know any that do. That's not necessarily to say I was enjoying it, but I wasn't stopping reading either. There are some funny bits. The bits with Pickle are pretty funny and cute. I didn't like Alice as much as I maybe should have done.
But I am intrigued by some of the other characters, so I think I may go back to the first two books in the series and check those out. By the end, I realised I actually wanted to know what happened, and so therefore I must have enjoyed it!
It is well written, it has a good pace to it. I read "Bagging Alice' really quickly, so I must have liked it, right? Laura has always dreamed of writing a novel, and she imagines that if she could bring Charlie and Jenna together, she would have real-life inspiration for the characters in her novel, and at the same time, she would be relieved of the sexual guilt she carries for not sleeping with her very sexual husband. Hamilton's premise is intriguing, her characters quirky, and the setting is charming.
But Laura Rider's Masterpiece seems to barely skim the surface of the complications that might arise from such an unusual triangle. Hamilton uses an omniscient narrator who follows all three main characters.
This device might have been more successful had Hamilton not written such a brief novel.

Coming in at merely pages, the book doesn't quite give us the chance to know any of the characters well as we move quickly back and forth between them. There are far too many oddities to be contained within these few pages. Charlie believes he saw a UFO when he was a teenager, and he and Jenna first meet when they see bobbing lights in the night sky.
Charlie tells her about the Silver People he saw as a teenager. Jenna, who doesn't believe in UFOs, is taken with Charlie's story nonetheless. The Silver People are referenced frequently when Charlie and Jenna begin an email correspondence, yet ultimately, they serve as nothing more than a red herring in Masterpiece's plot.
In addition, Laura's book idea disappears almost completely from the novel, along with the Silver People, while Charlie and Jenna pursue their off-beat romance. Hamilton's prose is at times simply stunning. Early in the novel, when she is trying to think of ways to bring Charlie and Jenna together, Laura remembers that Charlie has Jenna's e-mail address: A prick of light.
