English as a Second Language...Review

About the book:
Smart, sarcastic Alexandra Brennan is bored with her dead-end job in New York City and uncertain about where her life is headed. But when her smug ex tells her she could never get into graduate school in the United Kingdom, that's precisely what she does. Armed with American cigarettes and extra-strength coffee, Alex leaves home and crosses the Atlantic. She's ready to face all that Great Britain has to offer, including beer, blokes, and more books than she can possibly read in a year. What she discovers, however, is that instead of running away from home, she may have actually found it.

It was ok. It's about a woman who goes to England to get her Master's Degree. So it's set in England (which I like), but mostly in English pubs (which I don't like). I didn't care for the liberal use of the "F" word or the liberal use of the sleeping around concept.

It was a bit clunky, like she was trying too hard. I can't say that I'd recommend it, but you might like it.

Thanks to my local library for having a copy I could borrow.  You can purchase your own copy here.
