    • In my opinion, this is the best of Jilly Cooper's romance books. In her simple, flowing style, she creates a unique atmosphere, fairytale landscapes and strong characters. Prudence is the prototype of every single, romantic young woman, looking for love in a wrong direction. She finds it though, where she'd less expected it, in Ace's arms, a strong-willed man, intelligent and attractive. Every woman-reader, no matter how feminist or independent, secretly longs for a hero to sweep her off her fee [...]


    • Jilly Cooper's kind of a guilty pleasure for me. I very rarely use that phrase to describe books, since a) it's horribly overused, and b) I believe the point of books is to make the reader feel, and if they can do that they've served their purpose, regardless of what critics say.But I do feel a little bad sometimes about my love for Jilly. Her books are at times sexist, racist, xenophobic, homophobic and misogynistic, and it shows in these older ones (Prudence was originally written in 1967 and [...]


    • While battling with Crime and Punishment I thought I'd give myself a break and read something less negative for a bit as I was getting ill weirdly at the same time as the main character and all that darkness wasn't helping me feel better.I LOVE Jilly's Rutshire chronicles, but when I read Imogen (another one of her shorter romance fiction titles) I found it a bit teen fictiony so I decided just to stick to long Jilly Coopers. However I read somewhere that Rupert Campbell Black first appears in P [...]


    • While waiting for Wicked to come out, I bought up a bunch of these old girl name books out of desperate desire for new Jilly Cooper. They were a pleasant enough diversion, not up to the splendor of the Rutshire books (best trashy novel series EVER) but enjoyable little slices of swinging 60s life. I have had this one in my car for a long time, I read on it if I finish a book or forget my current book while I am out. I finished it today and it's as charming and predictable as the others. When it [...]


    • I'm not exactly sure how I feel about Prudence. The story is set in the 1970s or 1980s and the attitudes during that periodwere interesting. Anyway, I don't think the story picked up until Pru went to the country. Even then, though, I felt like I was watching a train wreck. I just found the personalities and decisions made by so many of the characters quite odd.


    • I really like Jilly Cooper and I especially like this series. This was not the strongest among them, others of her books has made me gasp in surprise and cry of both joy and despair. This was a good book, but not as capturing as some of her others.


    • I read a lot of Jilly Cooper when I was a young teenager and learned an awful lot from her! I loved it at the time and think its about time I read them all again!


    • Classic Jilly in snippet form. Looking forward to her new book being released in Sept sometime, I miss the old set terribly.


    • In ‘Prudence’, 23-year-old Prudence is intrigued by detached, intelligent barrister Pendle. After playing it cool with her, he invites her to meet his family. She eagerly accepts, only to be pleasantly surprised by the chaos and drama of the Mulholland family –glamorous, irresponsible Rose (mother), handsome married Jack (brother) and mysterious Ace (stepbrother). Soon, it is evident that Pendle and Jack’s wife, Maggie have eyes for each other while she and Jack find themselves attracted [...]


    • I throughly enjoyed the first Cooper novel I read, so I decided to read another - I borrowed this novella from the local public library. This is a delightful romp in the English countryside and city, set in the 80’s. The protagonist is a young lady who falls for a stiff-upper lip, but ends up in the arms of his older brother. The characters are rather anachronistic and over the top, with lots of heavy drinking involved. The story is rather unlikely but just the thing if you are looking for a q [...]


    • As usual, Jilly Cooper delivers and gives us a heroine that is both hopelessly misunderstood and scattered, and extremely likable and plucky. Easy and enjoyable holiday read, even if the romance between Pru and her true love seems a little rushed at the end.


    • I read these first Jilly cooper novels as a teenager and loved them - have a feeling I'd hate them if I re-read them (I sense they will have dated badly), but I don't intend to, so that's ok :)



    • Reread this when fed up / sick, have all of Jilly's novels from the same period. Men are total b******* on the whole and the women wimpy, but the humour is appealing all the same!





    • All seven of the Jilly Cooper "girl name" romances are my go-tos when sick and I am in need of a little light entertainment that does depress me right back into bed. They make me laugh as the heroines are plucky scatty young ingenues and their love interests are older, wealthy, misunderstood brooding arses with a serious lack of communication skills. Sexism is rampant - think Georgette Heyer in the nineteen sixties. Barbara Cartland - eat your heart out.
